Another week and I’m still in the game. I can hardly believe that I’m 5 weeks into this already, but am so proud of myself for sticking to it this far. Let’s hope I make it to week 50 or something consistently…I really want this to be a lifestyle change. It’s been working so far.
This week I’m bummed that I did not stick to my resolve to use the MyFitnessPal log. I think I ate OK, but I don’t know for sure since I didn’t take the time to log anything in – and it does take a lot of time. The one thing I do know if that my water intake sucked this week. I know I don’t drink nearly enough, and some days I probably didn’t drink any. That’s another reason I want to get back to the app, since you log in how many cups of water you drank too.
Here are this week’s stats. Marginally better, but still not where I should be. I lost this week, but I was still smaller at the end of Week 4.
Starting weight: 171.5
Month 1 Weight: 165.8
Week 5 Weight: 166.9
Week 6 Weight: 166.7
Total lost so far: 4.8 pounds
What I Did: Honestly, I’m surprised I didn’t lose more weight this week. I hit the gym 4 times this week and only lost 0.2 pounds since last week. I do incorporate weight training into my workouts, so I’m hoping that’s the reason the scale is barely moving. I entered this week with a workout plan though, and I’m happy to say I stuck to it. Day 1 was an All-Body Workout (30 min treadmill, then 30 min cardio/arms/legs), Day 2 was Arms (30 min treadmill, 30 min weights focusing on my arms), Day 3 was Legs (30 min treadmill, 30 min weights focusing on my legs), and Day 4 was Total Cardio – a full hour of cardio on different machines.
Challenges: Not anything specific I can think of, but I guess logging in my food and activity has been a little time-consuming so I haven’t done it. Hopefully I can get in gear for next week and have a more significant loss.
