And my official weight/measurements for the month...
upper arm: 13
lower arm: 9.5
So last week technically lost zero pounds. Mid week I was down to 195, but by the end of the week I was back up to 196. I hate how weight can fluctuate like that...it's so frustrating! But at the same time I'm proud of the work I put in and I know I ate really well and worked out. Could I have pushed harder? Yeah, for sure, but I'm proud of what I accomplished last week.
This month, I have some hard core strength training routines planned. I'm also going to probably have to adjust them. Right now I have myself doing strength training on Sun, Tues and Thurs, but I'm going to be doing boot camps on Tues & Thurs, so I'll definitely need to switch that up. Probably what I'll do is Sun, Mon and Wed. Friday won't work because I have stuff planned most Friday's this week. Maybe Sun, Wed and Sat? We'll just have to see.
Without further adieu, here are my "before" photos.
My Goals for October are:
- Lose 7 pounds
- No soda, sweets or alcohol
- Complete each weekly challenge task
My workout schedule looks like this:
Sun, Tues & Thurs: circuit 1 strength training +30 minutes cardio
Mon, Wed & Fri: 30 - 45 minutes cardio
Saturday: hike / 60 minutes cardio
As I mentioned I also have some extras. Tuesday I have my first personal training session (free) with my MetaBody Pass. I'm hoping we actually do a workout. Thursday evening I'm trying out a new bootcamp.
So I'm going to need to adjust my schedule. Today I'll do my strength training (I already got in 60 minutes of cardio - the BF and I went for a long walk) and tomorrow I'll do my Tuesday strength training. Wednesday or Friday (depending) I'll do my Thursday strength training.
Hat's off to a fantastic October!
