Lose It Challenge: 5-Week Update
As I mentioned about 5 weeks ago, I'm participating in a team wellness challenge at work. This week was our mandatory 5-week "weigh-in" (I put it in quotes since we measure body fat, not weight), and then our final weigh-in is in another 5 weeks. So far, all three members on our team are down in body fat percentage! The male member on our team is kicking both of our female butts since he works out for an hour nearly every night, but I'm just glad we're all down in numbers. Onto my stats:
Initial body fat: 31.6%
5-week body fat: 30.8%
Almost down 1 whole percentage point!
Initial weight: 188 (actually 188.2, but 188 is what I typed into the machine)
Current weight: 185 (actually 185.2, but 185 is what I typed into the machine)
Down 3 pounds!
It's not as far along as I hoped I'd be, but it's going in the right direction, so I'll take it. Ten pounds to go until my goal weight. My food intake has been pretty great lately actually. I've cut way down on snacking, and the only time I really stray is when I go out with friends. I just have to be more of a hermit, and I'll be on my way, haha. I need to be more active, though. Right now, I'm still only doing Zumba on Tuesdays and yoga on Thursdays. Adding more exercise into my routine will definitely get my numbers down faster. But I'm getting there.
