I’ve made no secret that my goal weight is 120 lbs. Hubs thinks it’s low for me, but I’m only 5’2″…normal weight range is like…105-125 or so for someone of my height.
I’ve been wavering between 139-145 most recently which is…frustrating to say the least. Keep in mind this time last year I was about 135 right before I went to a steady 11-8/10-7/930-630/1-10p/8-5/930-630/8-5/9-6 schedule (ranging M-F to T-S) That’s right, I’ve had eight different schedules in less than a year.
But…I’m feeling good. Not to mention, the fact that hubs works out every day because he has to, is incredibly motivating. Homeboy went from me yelling at him when we were training for the Annapolis 10 miler last summer “THEY WON’T LET YOU WALK IN BOOT CAMP” as we ran over the Naval Academy Bridge, to running a 17:05 two miler for his last PT test at BCT. I’m super duper proud of him and not to mention all that weight loss (totaling ~33 lbs since before he shipped out)? Makes him even hawter than I remember.
For me though, and this all goes hand in hand with my resolutions
I’m back to tracking my eats (a la MyFitnessPal – friend me!) 5 days per week.
I’m back to writing out my workouts each Monday. Planner and blog.
Today starts the amazing 10 lb challenge – that I’m hoping to be successful with by the time I go out to see the hubs at the end of February.
10 lb challenge starting weight – 143.4 (I think? It was 143. something when I weighed myself this weekend to see what type of damage I had done. Not surprising, I was at 141 Friday before I left but a few alcoholic beverages will do that to you)
I will cut back on my sugar intake (I’ve noticed I’ve been going over my sugar allotment on MyFitnessPal). So while I’ve been doing good at not going over my calories, I have been going over my sugar.
I will drink more water. Lay off the diet dr. p homegirl. Seriously. If you need caffeine? Drink tea 🙂
I will stick with workouts 5 days per week. Shooting for every day because well, why not, but if not the very least is 5 days per week.
Weekly goals to support the over all resolutions/yearly goals. Writing these out totally helps me stick with it.
(These are in addition to these tracking methods I use to keep myself focused)
Goal for 10 lb challenge (12 weeks!)? 130. Doable? I think yes. I’ll be reporting on my weekly goals/weigh ins each Wednesday starting next week (bringing back Weigh In Wednesday).
