Here we are again, friends! Got on the scale yesterday morning and expected to maintain or gain since it’s TOM week:
That’s a LOSS of 0.8 pounds this week! This also puts me at officially my LOWEST weight ever during this weight loss journey…188.4 🙂 When I get down to 173, I will be at ONE. HUNDRED. POUNDS. LOST. I would love to be down to 173 by the time I have my yearly physical with my doctor in late March/early April. I think that is doable, but I’d have to lose a little bit almost every week between now and then; it’s definitely a goal to strive for! Right now, however, I am just so excited about being at 188. I think the last time I weighed 188 was MAYBE in my sophomore or junior year of high school. Seriously!
I managed to get about 23 or 24 activity points this past week–last night I went to the Y and pushed myself on the elliptical and managed to squeeze out a 5k in 34 minutes!!! I couldn’t believe it. I *completely* understand that the elliptical is totally different than running–I could never ever ever do a running 5k in 34 minutes…but I can on the elliptical, which means I was really going between 5.5-6.0 mph the entire time. It was awesome, and I felt great. My heart rate was at 95% it’s max most of the time, so I know I was working hard. Hoping to get 27 activity points this week between zumba and the elliptical.
Well, I’ve got to get to work. Hope you all have a great weigh-in and rest of the week!
