And that means another weigh-in for week 4 of Allan's Phase 5 challenge. I have not been losing like I was in the other challenges but I’ve never exercised and lost inches like I have since I started at the gym and working my tail off. I don’t know if I am gaining muscle while losing the fat but not losing a pound or what because I am still at 180.0. Allan is not going to be impressed, the other challengers aren’t either cuz I didn’t pull my weight. I don’t blame them, but I am trying.
I will admit this week wasn’t by the book. No excuses, Mike turned 19 this week and one day I fixed his favorite meals and the next night he took me out for dinner to say thank you mom for life. Both days I didn’t over eat but I did not stay on plan either. I did go to the gym an extra day to try and make up for the extra’s, I did burn an extra 1000 calories but not enough to lose anything this week.
So this means instead of being in the middle of Allan’s chart I’m going to head to the bottom, the bottom where the slow losers are. Except, slow losing is better then no losing but still not good when there is a plan that needs to be followed, exercises that need to be done and weight that needs to be lost.
So week 5 is on the horizon. Will it be a great week? I am going to work my tail off, stay on plan and do my best. I’m running out of time before my anniversary. It’s now only 50 days away.
So to all my friends in the challenge I am sorry I didn’t hold up my end of the stick this week. To Allan, I’m sorry too. Can’t say anything else, it’ll just be blah, blah, blah.
Enjoy your weekend, stick with the plan and next week there will be great strides in the Mother of all challenges. We can do this, I CAN DO THIS!!!
Take care and have a blessed Sunday.
