Week 53 – On the Right Track?

Week of 05-04 through 05-10 in the year of our Lord 2012
This is the first weigh-in of the rest of my life. Here are the results for week 53:

 253 lbs.
Last Week: 255.2 lbs.
Week Difference: -2.2 lbs.
Total Loss: 81.6 lbs.
Waist: 41.25 inches (-0.0)
Neck: 15.75 inches (-0.0)
Body Fat Percentage: 31.5% 
BMI: 31.6 (-0.3 )





That is a significant loss compared to the past several months.  I only did kettlebells one day this week, so that couldn’t have had any impact. It must be the fact that even though I did not track my calories very well over the past couple of weeks, I have been eating within my calorie restriction and what I have been eating has been very nutritious. I have been killing the grilled chicken, broccoli, spinach, and other fun yummies. Also I have been changing my work out routine and pushing myself a little harder during my “hard workout” days. I ran the bridge again this morning (a new Thursday tradition for the next little while.) Here is what that looked like from a heart rate monitors perspective…

All day, I dream about sips (of water…when I’m running, and it’s hot.) How’s that for a new Adidas campaign.

I am hoping that this loss will be a trending situation.

I want some of you lurkers out there to speak up about this. Leave a four word or less comment on what you think is the procuring cause for this week’s loss…If you don’t, I will know it.

Beast Face out!

    Whenever I chill out and quit fixating on it and being anxious about it, I loose weight, so that’s my strategy for life, keep eating real food, pay attention to what my body is saying – full, hungry, tired, energetic, and don’t fixate.

    mixing it up works. (I will not exceed the 4 word limit to say, hmm, maybe I need to take this advice!)

  • Mixing it up I think is the key.. It’s fun but there’s that muscle memory I hear all the time.. Just have fun with it.. Set goals, eat right, relax.. You got this


    What did it?

    Methinks: Sheer GRACE and PERSISTENCE. =)

  • Calories in, calories out.

    Congratulations on a super week!

    All right! Good job!

    Your kettle bells sounded killer slash great! I would love to try that if I lived anywhere near a gym…

    I can’t wait to hear about how it keeps going. I find crossfit very intriguing.

    What your asking for will harm you more than do you good in the long run.I just found out my scale is 5lbs off, so I was 251lbs, 50+ inch waist. Now I am 5’101/2 174lbs, 33 inch waist. I did it with exeisrce and proper eating habits. I lost about 3 pounds a week, which is what you should do.I once lost 60lbs in 60 days, literally. I gained it back plus some because I never learned discipline in what or how to eat along with exercising. This time I did it right and have kept the weight off for 6 years now. I lift weights every 2 or 3 days and exeisrce on a daily basis. I exeisrce this much because I like to eat some things that I probably shouldn’t. If I didn’t I wouldn’t have to exeisrce so much.It took you a while to put the weight on and it should take a while to lose it properly.
