This was a pretty great weekend for Ohio sports so I’m feeling victorious today. I can’t help but be inspired by my alma mater Kent State football team getting *this close* to a bowl game, The Ohio State University beating Michigan and going undefeated, and the Browns beating the Steelers.
One non sports related reason is because I hopped on the scale this morning and I’m already down 1lb! So note to Craig, my weight loss challenge instigator, get your check book ready! 🙂 That $20 (big money big money no whammies!) is as good as mine.
I also heard from an FB friend from high school that is inspired by my little challenge to take on the challenge herself! She’s in it with me too, we are determined to lose these 5 little pounds. Anyone else up for the challenge? Let me know!
As for my workouts, this week starts Week 5 of the Fighter Diet – on tap for the workouts are Pyramid Deadlifts. Basically means increase the weight with each set until you’re at your heaviest and then work your way back down to the weight you started with. I’m also seeing some squats, max rep push-ups and hanging leg raises which I still suck at.
Week 6 is Pull-ups.
Although I can chalk up this week to a victory in terms of food selection, workouts and weight loss, it’s important not to get caught up in the moment and stay focused.
Here’s to another “winning” week!
