Welcome to Week 9 of the 12-Week Sprint to the Finish! We’re in the homestretch now, with just three weeks to go.
I’m seriously thinking that I’m probably not going to hit my goal of 21 pounds lost, but I’m much closer than I was 9 weeks ago, so I’m okay with that.
Of course, I’m not throwing in the towel, either. I’d like to be 5 or 6 pounds closer by the time we wrap up, which would put me within 6 or 7 pounds of my goal weight.
That would be awesome!
My goals this week are:
1) Continue my training plans for running and lifting. Last week was a rest week for running, so I got to do several 4 mile runs with no long run. I needed the rest. In fact, in a move very out of character for me, I didn’t work out at all Friday or Saturday.
I really felt that my body needed the break and I’m trying to learn to listen to those clues. I hope it doesn’t reflect negatively on the scale – things looked pretty good there when I sneaked a peak yesterday morning.
2) Continue making good food choices and tracking – or not – my food on My Fitness Pal. Yeah, I know I told y’all you could fuss at me the next time I started talking about not tracking food. Go ahead…but I’ve got some thoughts swirling around in my head about that.
If I can make those thoughts make sense, I’ll share them sometime this week.
That’s it for me today. No food log this week. Not because I have anything to hide – because I don’t – or because I haven’t been tracking – because I have – but because it’s time-consuming and, well, I’d just rather spend the time with my family right now.
I thought y’all would understand.
What about you? How are you doing on your 12-Week Sprint? What are your goals for this week?
Do or do not. There is no try.
