Fit Club Week 5 Results

Ok, I know I need to blog about something other than my fitness plan. A says I am more obsessed with my body than a girl. That really rattled my delicate sensibilities. I am a little emotional these days. Sniff.

Starting weight: 174

Current weight: 167.5

A pound and a half this week. I didn't exercise than much. The main reason? My calorie intake has dropped significantly in one material respect: I've cut booze out of my diet. After five days of boozing in Montreal, A and I decided to take a month drying out. Outside of two days, I've been dry the last week and a half. I am not a heavy drinker, but I do happy hour about twice a week with the fellas, and have a few on the weekend. That is out until August.

Well, except for Friday and Saturday, when we're celebrating A's birthday. But, I've probably cut out about six drinks a week. Figure 100-150 calories a drink, and we're talking about 600-900 calories a week. When you are aiming for a net deficit of 3500 calories a week to lose one pound, it helps. A bunch.

Three weeks left to hit the target of 164.

Fit Club Week 4 Results

Starting weight: 174

Week 2 weight: 171

Week 3 Target: 169

Week 3 weight: 170

Week 4 target: 169

Week 4 weight: 169 Hit the target. A and I did a lot of walking on our trip to Montreal. We must have walked two to three miles a day, not including the long hike up and around Mont Royal on Thursday. Part of me wonders whether the "stomach problems" -- as I coquettishly like to refer to them -- I experienced after a rich fondue dinner Saturday night.

Enough weight loss, in the coming days I'll post about the trip A and I took, which featured: a tumorous liver, a woman who tried valiently, but unsuccessfully, to stomp my feet, the Madhatter, shawarma, shawarma, shawarma, and les boissons fantastique!
