Let’s begin —
I’m recommitting to this whole weight loss/exercise thing for the month of Aug. I started the 3-Day Refresh and, well, I failed miserably. I made it through one day of the shakes before I ended up with a massive headache, no motivation, and the overwhelming urge to vomit every time I even thought about Shakeology. No bueno. I’m determined to finish them though, I paid for the system and I need to see it through but we’re about to get creative. Stay Tuned for these recipes…
However, all that aside:
Week 1: -2.7lbs
Yep. I’m actually down a little over two and a half lbs this week! I’ve been loosely following the 21-Day Fix approved foods list and watching my caloric intake on MFP. I haven’t, however, gotten any time to exercise, which needs to be incorporated. That is definitely becoming a priority in this next week.
The Hubs got me a FitBit Flex for my (extremely early) birthday gift and I like it a lot. I had a FitBit Zip for a short period of time but I found myself getting way too wrapped up in it and not moving for the right reasons. This is a little more mindless which is really helping. That and I find myself taking random trips around work, just to get some steps in.
So for now –
* Drop 8 lbs (4%)
* Work Out 5 Days a week
* Meet or exceed 10,000 steps per day, weekends included.
8 Days until the Charles St 12 (Half PR: 2:59:17) [I know I can’t count my Half PR against the 12 Miler but I’d like to complete this in 2:45 or less. I know that seems extreme but I’m hoping I can pull it off.]
44 Days until the 9/11 Run To Remember (PR: 32:59)
86 Days until the MCM10K (PR: 1:12)
100 Days until the 10K Across The Bay (PR: 1:12)
