Down one pound this week with the Ultimate Oxygen Challenge. Results aren't dramatic, but as my coach and I discussed yesterday, I'm in a building phase and my fat loss magic might night happen until later. That phase won't begin for another couple weeks. The trend with my scale (which may not be entirely accurate) is down in fat % and up on muscle gain. So I'm just going to keep executing one day at a time, run the Spartan Super in a week and a half, and then really zone in on fat loss.
I hope you're having a great week!
Yikes! I looked at the calendar today and realized I have only three weeks until the Spartan Super. Just. Three Weeks. I feel confident I will be fine. However, I really want to give mental attention to finishing in the heat. I think that is going to be my biggest challenging variable for this race. After the Super, no more. I find myself asking, why didn't I go for the trifecta....hmmmm....???
I received confirmation tonight that my photos were accepted. For some reason it is creating a much stronger sense of urgency. Like, I really need to kick things into high gear. As I said yesterday, I am going to tweak a few things and implement this next week. Hopefully I will see more change for my next check-in.
This is an awesome time. I am grateful for my husband who supports me and my daughters who are excited to see the what their momma can accomplish. I am loving that I am making some other connections and their are a few people in my life showing support. So much to do, so excited to do it!
Numbers are in and the program appears to be working! Of course it only works if I execute it, so yay me!
In summary, I have lost 3.4 pounds of fat and gained .6 pounds of muscle, according to the Omron scale I have. These numbers are WITH the start of my cycle, yesterday. Maybe they'll be even better next week?
Today... continued pre-workout supplements before doing:
20m Steady state @ 70% MAX HR
Drop sets and negatives for the weight lifting.
Burpees and an attempt to climb rope in preparation for the #Spartan, for my workout this afternoon. Good grief I can't figure out how to shimmy up this thing to save me! Just five weeks, I need to figure it out soon!
