Weekly Update and MUD

First of all, I did the Mud event this weekend!  I LOVED IT!  I am now hooked.  I just wish they weren’t so expensive.  I really want to do the Tough Mudder, but it is killer $$$$.  We will see.  The one I did with my hubby and friends was almost 8 miles and 26 obstacles.  LOVED IT!  And my hubby and I got more time together than we have in a long time.

Weight stats…still staying away from body fat percentage until my weight comes down.  It has not changed, but my clothes fit better?  So I am sure there is some muscle gain, but I still want the shred…so hoping for that to come soon.

Be back in a week!

Day 2

So far so good…

This morning I began with a leg routine including hack squats, pop squats, dead lifts and lunges…no crazy weights used though.  On hand for tonight…I am going to attempt to do the Linda Crossfit routine (with lighter weights) and if I have energy left I have a Tough Mudder circuit with cardio, weights and other random activities.  I know I can get through some of both the Linda and the Tough Mudder circuit…hopefully I can get through most, or all, of both.

In terms of food…

I have one more meal to eat for the day and am contemplating some egg whites with a bit of cheese and maybe even a banana.  The rest of the day has been filled with lots of water, lots of fruit (I know some don’t recommend fruit when losing weight, but I “need” it), some green veggies, eggs, and a protein shake.  My total calories is just at 1500…maybe even a few under.  🙂

Not weighing myself for awhile…BUT I will say that a year ago if I was at this weight I would have been a lot more bummed out than I am now, so I am mentally making some progress too.  🙂

Will report in tomorrow.  🙂

UPDATE:

* Completed the Linda Crossfit…I surely did not have heavy enough weights, when I add weight I am not sure if I will be able to complete it as easily.

* Did half of the Tough Mudder workout.  It is 50 minutes, I did 25.  I am off to bed now though.

* I did eat bread with margarine (gasp)…I know it is bad…so my calories are closer to 1800 now.

* I did drink even more water…bringing me up to around 60 ounces for the day.
