End of Week #3 Stats~

I think I could have done a bit better this week, but the past two days I did very well with eating/exercise.  I'm down half a pound, I would have liked a full pound, I am very excited to be below 124 though.  That's kinda my comfort zone, over 124 and I start to feel less confident in my body and my clothes get tight.  Also 1/2 inch of my waist :D and 1/4 in from my upper thighs, all in all not bad.  

Overall i've lost 2 lbs in 3 weeks, not earth shattering but I am only 5-7 lbs away from goal now. Once I get there I am going to concentrate on getting a bit more cut.  Actually I may try to lose more body fat at goal weight first so I might go below 116 at first but then put a little back on as lean muscle.

Week 3:
                       Height   ~ 5'4"
                     Starting  ~ 125.5
                 Last Week   ~ 124
                      Current  ~ 123.5     
                         Goal   ~ 116-118
                         First Week     Last Week     This Week
              Waist ~      27 in           26.5 in          26 in
                Hips ~      36 in             36 in           36 in 
              Thigh ~  20.75 in        20.75 in         20.5 in 

This Sunday is my 5k race, I'm nervous because I want to run a good time but I am trying not to put too much pressure on myself.  I haven't run a race in over a year and the one I am running is very hilly so I'm trying to get into the mindset of enjoying the race and giving my best effort without the emphasize of a goal time.  Honestly I have no idea of what I am capable of running right now so setting a goal time is kinda pointless.  I will see what I can run now and use it as a baseline to improve upon throughout the year.  

Ran for 35 mins. today, but I was super sore/tired from yesterday's hour run and resistance training.

Thank You for following and for your kind words! I don't think I look too bad, but when your job uniform is a bathing suit you want to look the best you can! If only for my self-esteem, having "fat days" wearing a two piece (or even one piece) are not pleasant :/.

Hello Katie,

Congratulations on the loss. I've seen what a 1/2 pound looks like (at a ww meeting) and you sure don't want it back.

Great job with the running and the resistance training. I am looking to increase my exercise and want to use weights.

I agreer with Carrie--looks like you're more than ready to wear that bikini.

Looking forward to reading more.

Congratulations on the weight loss and good luck with the race tomorrow. Is a half marathon next?

Katie said...

Thanks Paula and Darren!

Darren~ hmmm I don't think there are any half marathons in my near future. I'm all about training to getting faster right now. I'd rather train to run a super fast mile than a steady paced half. I'm aiming to run a sub- 20 5k this year :D
