Luckily, the "busy" part of my summer was this last weekend when my baby sister became a married woman. At 14 weeks out, I could have probably afforded myself a cheat day... but I really didn't want to. The last thing I want is to derail my progress. I recognize my eating habits have moved into the Yellow Zone (meaning, my cravings are a lot less but I could easily be shoved back into the red zone if I don't watch myself...).
Training. I focused all week. And planned my training around the wedding. I took Saturday as my rest day, although it wasn't really restful at all. I had planned to do some cardio on Sunday but didn't get to it, instead spent the day running around doing chores and running errands. Although I took 2 days off from training, I need to give myself kudos for all week putting my training first... Getting up at 330 to do cardio from 345-415 and then work 430 to 3pm just to train from 330-530pm. It was a long week in that respect... but I got it all in. :)
However, I did still weigh in today at 116.0 lbs which is down 5 lbs from 5/29 and my body fat is at 18.75% (down from 21%). My goal was 17% by today's date, but again, refusing to feel bad about that. I sweated and worked my arse off for that 18%.
|Here I am on 5/29 at 121 lbs and 22% body fat.|
|Here I am now, at 116.0 lbs and 18.75% body fat|
Also an update, which I'm particularly sad about... I can't afford a prep coach right now. I will be able to in 2 more weeks... but the wedding drained my savings. :( But I know how to keep myself going and fully plan on it until I can finally meet my prep coach.
So be expecting progress pics around July 25th, in which I vow to actually pose and be in my suit. :)
