Yes today is a countdown! 5 days until the start of a new challenge over at the Sisterhood! August 1 starts the Down & Dirty in 30 Challenge! Doesn’t it sound like fun?! And what makes it more exciting is that its a TEAM challenge!!! Yay!!! I can hardly contain my excitement! If you want more info, check out the details here and you can find out where to RSVP to get on a team!
Now that I’ve got everyone all pumped up about the new challenge, it’s time to get down to business – the weigh-in. I hopped on the scale this morning with my eyes closed and peeked at the number with one eye – 137.4. Not bad. I won’t even count that as a gain – more of maintaining. Especially considering I lived off of milkshakes this weekend after having my wisdom tooth pulled. Now if I had been smart and planned properly, I could have stocked up on protien shakes or Ensure (if either are GF) and saved some calories but alas, I didn’t and soaked up the opportunity to indulge. So now its back on the wagon and off to the races! Only 12.4 pounds until I reach my goal weight!
I am also officially halfway through Couch to 5k! I totally kicked Week 4 Day 2 this morning (and only felt like I was going to fall over versus die this time!). I am glad I repeated week 4. I definitely needed it! But I must admit I fear for what week 5 has in store! But I’ve still got week 4 to finish so I will concentrate on that for now and leave the fear for next Monday!
So here are the stats:
Starting weight: 164.4
Last week’s weigh-in: 137.2
Today’s weigh-in: 137.4
Overall Change: -27.0
