60 Day Fat Loss Challenge Check In: Week 5

I can’t believe we are over half way done with the 60 day Fat Loss Challenge already! Man, there have been highs and lows. Honestly, it has been harder than I thought it would be. I have always struggled with my weight (read my story for background). I did kinda expect this time to be different than every other time I’ve tried to lose weight… I’m not sure why, but I did. I have worked really hard for the weight loss I’ve achieved over these past 5 weeks, and I’m proud of every ounce I’ve lost. I guess, really, this time is different. I think starting CrossFit has a lot to do with it. My body is changing and adapting, I feel stronger and more motivated to see progress. And I don’t plan on going back. So, here is the week 5 Recap!

Friday June 29
CrossFit
Pre WOD: Bench Press 5×5
WOD – “Nancy”

Saturday June 30
Pre WOD: Find 2 rep max strict press (55#)

Have you ever done pistols? One legged squats. KILLS the butt!

Random Strength

Tuesday July 3
CrossFit
Pre WOD- Deadlift 3×5 (I did 100#!!!)

I wanted to see how long I could be at CrossFit and avoid burpees… I made it a month! And they killed. This is one of the workouts I really wanted to quit, but I didn’t!

#NTC 30 Minute Cardio workout
20 minutes jump roping… trying to learn Double Unders!

100 Push Presses (45#)

No, you didn’t read that wrong… that says 100 (one hundred) Push Presses. Seriously.

Favorite Food Finds

I discovered a few new things that have become fast favorites this week.

Zucchini Lasagna, based off a recipe from SkinnyTaste.com

SO Delicious Coconut Milk Creamer. This is SO creamy, low cal and not alot of sugar. Perfect for my iced coffee addiction!

I saw these on a friend’s instagram and HAD to hunt them down. I love them. I don’t think I should keep them in the house at all times because I just might eat them all. In one sitting. They are good. Dangerously Good.

 

The Results

Starting Weight: 210
Week 1: 205.4
Week 2: 205
Week 3: 204.2
Week 4: 204.8
Week 5: 201.8

YES! 3 pounds! I’m SO close to being under 200! It’s good to have a “good” week in the scale department, it gives me that extra motivation to push harder this week!

What are some of your favorite healthy foods?
