In 17 days at my gym, I completed our mini triathlon. I finished up the biking tonight. 112 miles on the bike, 26.2 miles of running and 90 laps in the pool. Each time I was there I didn’t just do these things either, I would do the weight circuit. The only thing I have done more then required was the jogging/running. I have put on an additional 15 miles.
With that being said, I have only lost 2 lbs this month. I use my fitnesspal to calculate my calories each and every day and I am always at or near 1200 every day. With my working out I burn 1100 calories 4 times a week and each time myfitnesspal says I’m not getting enough calories but I’m sticking with Allan's plan. 1200 calories a day, 128 oz or more of water a day, my exercise plan on days I go to the gym and his exercises on the days I don’t go (except Sundays, that is not an exercise day). I know the science says I should be dropping these last 15-20 lbs like nothing but they are glued on better then hair on a dog. Can it be I am building muscle and it weighs more then my fat and the scale is showing that? I know that I’ve lost 5 3/4” of fat so my body is changing for the better.
I don’t know, I don’t understand but there is one thing…well really more then one thing, I am proud of and it’s me and what I have done. Any month you start out at one weight and end at a lesser weight is a good month. This month not a fantastic month though I do have one more weigh in on Sunday.
I know Allan said “With 102 days or so left, plenty of room for people to pop in. No cuts this Phase, although there will be shame coming on Sunday if things are not better. Julie, Sarah, Laryssa, Jen,,,,ya feeling me yet...” I have nothing to be ashamed of, I am doing my best and will continue.
I have two more workouts for this month, tomorrow morning and Monday very early for my weigh-out at my gym. I would of taken a 10 lb loss month gladly since that would of been $10.00 of next months dues but any loss is a loss.
Take care my friends and have the most awesome, relaxing, rejuvenating and blessed weekend possible.
