I'm going to be 15 in less than three weeks. I go to a military school, so it is important for me to be in shape.
I'm trying to get down to 115-120. I'm 5'4" and weigh 141 right now. I've already lost 25 pounds!
I'm feeling confident already!
I did really well this past week! I completely cut out all diet soda (I never drank regular soda anyway) and sweets (except for today, we had an early celebration for my birthday so I had half a piece of chocolate cheesecake)!
Here are my approximate calorie totals:
I exercised at the gym Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. On Tuesday and Saturday I did a Jillian Michaels DVD. Today was a rest day. At the gym, I got myself to run at 5.7 for 10 minutes straight (I stay on the treadmill 30 mins, but I always go up and down in speed, so I was trying to push myself out of my comfort zone). I'm not sure, does 5.7 translate to mph or is it just the treadmill setting?
At the end of the week, I started on the stair-stepper at level 11 for 25 mins on the random interval setting (out of levels 1-20). I wouldn't think it was as tough as running, but I felt my heartrate go up and I was breaking a sweat within 5 minutes! haha I was surprised! And as usual, weight training, but only about 15-20 minutes.
I weigh myself in the mornings, and last week on Monday I started out at 135. This morning I was 132.5
I was consistent at 133 for a couple mornings, but I don't mind, as long as it doesn't go back up! haha My goal for next week is to get under 130. If that means 129.5 then so be it! I haven't been able to stay consistantly below 129 in about three years.
For some reason, I feel a lot more confident with my efforts knowing the people in this community are willing to put in hard work and actually eat right and exercise as opposed to taking drastic measures such as barely eating. How was everybody's week? :)
