Happy Wednesday everyone. It's time for Weigh-In Wednesday!
It's been a few weeks since I have done a WIW post, so let's just get right to it.
My eating has not been at it's best. I could feel myself slipping here and there. Which is probably why the scale hasn't been moving much. I am only cheating myself by doing this. And I know this. No one is perfect, and especially not me. But I am determined to get back on track. And so far this week, I have done just that!
I really need to get back on track with the low carb/high carb days that I was doing. Low carb eating on days when I am only doing cardio and high carb eating on days when I am lifting. It actually works out pretty well when I do this. I don't feel like I am stuck eating the same thing all the time. AND after talking to my trainer, he upped my calories back up to 1550 instead of the 1450 that he had me at. I felt like I wasn't getting enough to eat on some days and he said if that is the case then I probably wasn't. So we went back to where I was. Having that extra 100 calories back has felt amazing. I can't even describe it.
As far as workouts go, I am staying pretty consistent with these. Still doing Zumba twice a week. And lifting three days out of the week and I have recently added a circuit day to help me get ready for Tough Mudder. Also I have been trying to take one day where I either go hiking for a good amount of time and distance or a long run of three or more miles. This has pretty much equated to me working out seven days a week, which can be rough at times. But I am making sure to listen to my body and when I start feeling fatigued, I take a rest day.
The last Weigh-In Wednesday I did was on July 2nd and I weighed in at 162 lbs. Today I am down to 157.8 for a total loss of 4.20 lbs! That is really good actually. That means I am losing about a lb a week. I will take it at this point. I will take any loss at this point. I still have almost 18 lbs to get to my goal, but I am getting closer!!! AND to top it all off, my trainer did my measurement on Friday. Although I don't have the specific measurement from this, I lost inches everywhere. And we did body fat as well and I am officially down to 22.6% which is 1.6% away from being considered an Athlete in terms of body fat!!! 1.6% away! I am so freaking proud of this. One of my goals has been to get to that 21%. So I am sooooooooooo close to accomplishing that! And that feels great!
Okay, that is all I have for today. Thanks for stopping by and checking in on my progress. Hope you guys have a great Hump Day!
