I’m suffering from a serious problem… plumber butt. I cannot keep my pants on! I don’t want to buy new pants though because I plan to continue losing weight and don’t want to spend big money on pants that will hopefully only fit for a few months. I suspect that I’ll be exploring the world of second hand jeans very soon! What is terrible is that I bought 2 pairs of yoga pants at the beginning of this UL contest and now I struggle to keep them on. Friday we were running a timed relay carrying 16 lb medicine balls and I lost my briches half way around the track. My arms were full of yellow weighted torture making a much needed hitch difficult. Thank the stars above that no one was there to see the moon that flashed! Today I pinned the waist and that seemed to help a lot. I love those pants and hate that I only got a few weeks out of them before I lost too much in the waist to run in them!
There are only 3 weeks left this time in the Ultimate Loser contest. I’m struggling to keep my caloric intake under control and to get in enough exercise everyday. I’ve made a goal for this week that I’ll get to the gym at 5 am so I can get in an extra hour of exercise in the morning. That way I’ve at least gotten my full 2 hours and if I get to the gym after work that is just bonus. This morning I arrived around 5:15 and so I stayed after class until 7:15. It’s a good thing too because I’m so so so tired.
Today’s workout was less than fun. I did a lot of crunches, squats, jogging, pushups, and up/downs (which I hate with the intensity of a thousand fiery suns!). On my own time I did 10 minutes on the stair master & 45 minutes on the treadmill.
This past week I was incredibly busy. I never really caught up on the things I needed to get done and so I didn’t get to write about the weight loss results last week. I’ve slowed down and you can tell by my umber. I only lost 3 pounds last week bring my grand total to 20. I’m hoping to work really hard this week and lose a lot. I’d love to hit my 10% goal by this friday, so I need to lose 7 this week. Keep your fingers crossed.
Here are my stats:
Beginning weight: 270.8 lbs
Current weight: 249.8 lbs
Total Lost (this go around): 20 lbs
Total lost since October: 51 lbs!!!
On Friday I wore a shirt that hasn’t fit in 10 years. It was awesome. Too bad my taste in fashion has changed though :-)
