It has been about 4 weeks since my last post. This is in part to not wanting to bore you with my day to day monotony. The other part is due to being busy busy busy. Despite being busy, I have not strayed from my weight loss program. I have still been exercising regularly and watching what I eat. I did however have to increase my calories due to competition.

Some of you may have noticed that I did not do my weekly weigh in post last week. This is because I am getting to the point where my weight loss is going to slow down. As I get closer to my goal weight, I will have less change in scale weight and more change in body composition. What I am looking for now is improvements in athletic performance and a decrease in body fat percentage. Here are my current stats.

Weekly Weigh In 6: Down 2.2 lbs

by Cyndi on March 23, 2013

When I say consistency, you say YEAH!

This week I lost 2.2 lbs and am very happy about it. At this point in my weight loss plan, I am hoping to lose an average of 2 lbs per week. I still have 23 lbs to lose, so this should be at least 11 more weeks. In order to do this I will stick to the same ole’ diet and make small increases/changes to the intensity, type, and length of my exercises. The reason for all the changes is for several reasons. First, in order to avoid plateaus, you must keep your body guessing. Next, the muscles may need time to recover from the previous days loads. Lastly, varying your exercises improves overall fitness and prevents mental burnout and injuries. Keep Reading

Let me just say first that plateaus suck! Last week I worked my butt off to bust my plateau and ended up losing 1.4 lbs that week. This week I worked half as hard and lost 2.4 lbs. The only changes I made during my plateau week was exercise related. I had to split workouts into 2 a days in order to boost my metabolism. I stuck to the same diet of 100 calories per hour during both weeks. This week I went back to 1 workout a day. This is the nature of losing weight. Keep Reading

This week was a struggle for me. Despite the fact that I was doing everything right, my body was intent on doing it’s own thing. The week started with my Saturday weigh in of 164.6 lbs. On Sunday I had a 45 min walk. On Monday I did a 45 min walk in the morning and 45 min rowing in the evening. With sticking to my diet and all this exercise you would think I would be moving in the right direction. Nope! Tuesday morning I weighed in at 166.2. Keep Reading

This week I have still been plugging away at my weight loss goal. It has only been 3 weeks since I delivered my baby so I haven’t been able to be too aggressive. This week I lost a total of 2.2 lbs. I am very happy with  this number. I have been consistent in my diet of 100 calories per awake hour and I have been pretty consistent in exercise this week too. I played tennis 2 days for 1 hour each and walked for 45 min on 3 days.   Below are this weeks stats. Keep Reading
