Week 2 : Shrinking Jeans New Year’s Weight Loss Challenge

New-Years-Weight-Loss-Challenge--300x300

So we wrapped up week 2, and I had a 3 lb loss!! I spent a lot of the week sick, so as you will see from the bits of the report below, I didn’t have a lot of activity except for the half marathon and the recovery quality workout on Tuesday. I did, however, log all my food, and for the most part, I remained under my calorie budget.

What worked this week:

  • drinking lots of liquids
  • getting lots of rest
  •  having friends to run the half marathon with.. right off the bat, one said “it’s just a long run with a bunch of people”
  • talking to my sister (my teammate)

Proud Moment

One proud moment this challenge so far was running the 3M Half Marathon while I still had a cold. I didn’t know if I had it in me.. walking around the house left me exhausted. I emailed my coach, who told me take to some DayQuil and said ” it won’t be as fun or easy but you could definitely get the work done because of your strength.” Except it was fun, and not as hard as I expected it to be. I was super proud of my legs for powering through the last mile and a bit, and achieving my PR!

Here are a few of the stats from my BodyMedia armband

Calorie Consumption - Week 2

Protein was low because of all the chicken noodle soup, toast, and orange juice consumed

Physical Activity per Day - Week 2

Lots and lots of rest…

Calorie Balance By Day - Week 2

6/7 days is pretty good…

What I’ll do differently next week:

  • Get all my workouts in — luckily this is a recovery week from the half marathon :D
  • Get more fruits and vegetables in
  • Eat more protein

If you’re doing a challenge or working on your New Year’s Resolutions, how did you do this week?
