Weigh-in Wednesdays: 136.0

Last Wed. weight: 136.6
Today's weight: 136.0

Lost: -0.6

TOTAL Lost: -40.4

Is it okay to celebrate the -40 lbs. milestone again?

Anyway, speaking of Vegas...

Thank you for all your comments on yesterdays post. I appreciate all the advice and will take them to heart. I forgot to mention that I'm spending a day at Red Rock Canyon, hopefully getting in some hikes, but I'm for sure gonna be doing this:

But on a much lesser, faker, safer scale:

Oh yes, have my appointment set and will be sure to come back home with tons of pictures. Because I'm gonna do this, my PT sessions have been focusing on my lats and back muscles... nothing overly extensive as far as the workout goes, but doing lots of pull-ups, lat pull-downs, and dumbbell rows so I won't be too sore from climbing.

On another note still related to Vegas, I have this really cute dress I bought and I WANT TO WEAR IT, DAMN IT!! Although it fits and everything zippers up, it doesn't fit real comfortable... not too much breathing room. So welcome to crunch time! I have exactly 17 days from today to get into the best shape possible and I'm gonna do it! Anyone who cares to join me can go right ahead.

Eating will be stellar, but on the lower calorie, less carb side. I'll be following a fat-burner eating plan from one of the Beachbody programs, Power 90. Although it's a 6-day food plan, I'm gonna alter it a little by bringing up the calories so I can make it last 17 days. My workouts are going to be mostly cardio based and much less intense (think brisk walks, hiking, hill climbs, etc.) because of the lower calorie intake. Later today I'll post the details of my eats for the next couple of days.

Wish me luck!

Here are my goals for January:
  • Workout 6 days/week for a total of 27 days out of the 31 days
  • Burn an average of 300 calories per workout = 8100 calories MADE IT!

You are going to ROCK that cute dress, Honey!! I will join in with you! In 17 days, I will be under 125, mark my words! Let's go :)

Boomer said...

Holy cow, you almost got me with that first picture! The second picture is more like it.

Hey, I am rooting for you to get in that dress. Bring it for the Power 90!!! As you know, its all about the nutrition.

So jealous! Rock climbing is one of my big non-scale goals. I tried it once 10 years ago, and it was a total fail. I swore some day I would redeem myself! Once I lose about 50 pounds (because I'm just too heavy right now, and I figure by then I'll be way stronger) I'm dragging my boyfriend out for a rock climbing adventure (on the fake scale, because, wow).

My word verification word is "volygrap" but I thought it said "holycrap" which made me giggle. It's the little things in life... :)

MackAttack said...

WOW! My shoulders hurt just looking at the pictures! You'll be great! It's awesome to see how adventurous you are :)
