The Five Percent Chronicles - Week 4 Recap

Monday, May 08, 2017

Woohoo Week 4!

My cold briefly teased me before slamming me face-first into the ground, but I still forced myself to get 10 minutes of light exercise (mainly ST) in every day. No more 0 days! It definitely wasn't easy, but I was so glad I did it.

My eating was decent. I continued to track and plan my calories, and although I didn't ALWAYS make the healthiest decision, I made sure everything still fit into the lowest possible end of my range, and I didn't go over my daily fat quota. Actually, I didn't come anywhere near it most days. Hmm.

By Friday, I was *just* well enough to reincorporate a couple SP cardio videos, and while my lungs ached and burned, I pushed through and made sure I stayed hydrated. I had wanted to go for 30-40 minutes, but I listened to my body and cooled down after 20. I was happy to have gotten to that point!

When I got on the scale on Saturday morning, I thought that there was surely no way I could have lost anything. To my joyous surprise, I lost three pounds! I was so happy that I may have shed a tear or two. I'm almost out of the 190s, and I'm halfway to my 5% goal!

Every pound lost is bringing me closer to my goal. This hard work is definitely paying off.

We're not even done with the Spring 5% challenge yet and I'm already excited for the Summer and Fall challenges! If I work hard, I could be as small as 167 pounds by the end of the Fall challenge. That means I'll only have 17 pounds left to lose! emoticon

Time to go own the heck out of Week 5!
