Good morning everyone! I am happy to report that my workplace Activity Challenge is going well. There have been no official results sent out yet, but I have a good feeling that I am in the top running. In the last week, I have worked out for 465 minutes. Now my goal was 100 minutes for 6 days a week (600 minutes) so I did come in a little under. I still feel as though I am in the lead. I do wish this challenge was based on effort. I KNOW nobody in the challenge can work out as HARD as I can.
Unfortunately, that is the best photo I have of myself during the last BifG workout. On a side note, this is a recurring theme in my life. I take wonderful photos of others and when I ask them to return the favor, I get fuzzy, ackwardly cropped photos. Here is an amazing photo I took of my cohorts:
But lets get back to the point. The workout. Those seemingly innocent looking logs weighed 150 pounds each. We had to flip them all the way down the driveway, end over end. It was so hard. I was not at all preparred for it! I left with scrapes all the way up and down my arms and legs. Ouch. I did look pretty hardcore though. Thanks BifG!
I also happened to weigh in today. I don't mind sharing the details with you sweets. My current weight is 132 and my body fat percentage is 24%. I am happy with the weight loss.....and by happy I mean that my goal is under 130 and I am happy to be so close. What I am not happy about is my body fat percentage. It just won't move!!!! I don't feel skinny and I think what I mean by that is that I don't feel lean. It is going to come down to what I eat. If I am so close to my goal, I really need to just buckle down and tighten up my diet. I left BifG and went straight home and made myself a healthy meal.
I will let you know how it goes. I plan to weigh in again in two weeks. I hope to ekk out another two pounds and at least a half percentage point in body fat%. Wish me luck will you?
