If you missed it the progress pictures are in the post below!
If your just now joining the blog let me explain the Phases to you. I have taken 1 whole year that my focus is weight loss. I broke the year down into 4 Phases....like the TV show Extreme Weight Loss with Chris Powell. I set a goal at the beginning of the Phase (really they were all set at the beginning of the year) and then strive to hit a 3 month goal. At the end of the Phase there is a prize if you hit the goal. I missed my Phase one goal by 4 pounds but I still got the prize! I missed this last one and I'm not getting the prize this time. I figure since I'm paying for the prizes (no one gave me a $25,000 Wal-Mart gift card like they do on the show) and not a TV show then I can pretty much decide if I should get it or not, right?
Phase 3 has a goal of 30 lbs and that is the official goal but I would really like to see under 200. Even if its only by 1 pound I would love to see a number below 200. I think I am going to set two prize goals for this Phase. If I lose the 30 one prize and if I hit the under 200 another cooler more awesome prize! As for the prize this time I don't know....I'm tempted to leave one of them as Crossfit and come up with a new one but I would like to come up with two new ones. I just don't know as of right now but I will soon.
Now today I have been pretty excited about my weight loss and I have enjoyed a day a little more relaxed than normal. I think the stress of the last week of Phase 2 has gotten to me because my face is all broken out so I just kinda rested. I did go workout this morning and got in a great workout. I did Pump and got a great workout and then hopped on the treadmill and got in a very good run. I was beginning to think after that race on Saturday that I needed to give up running but this was such a nice little jog it made me remember why I liked it so much. And then I didn't workout again for the rest of the day. Instead I came home and packed up for two big workouts tomorrow and shopped for a bridesmaid dress and went grocery shopping since I had no food in my house!
The rest of my night was chill with the most activity coming from vacuuming my living room. I used the weekend to clean my kitchen but I never got around to vacuuming anything. Now I fell pretty good about starting phase 3, I have a stocked fridge, a clean house, and a new motivation/goal to hit! Let's get it going!!!
