Weight loss update-1/22/11

So I am heading to the gym for my next weigh in for the challenge that I signed up for. I will post my new body fat reading later. Back to my running habit. Ran 3.86 miles yesterday in 32:48. That's about a 8:30/mile pace. I'm good with that. My birthday is in 2 days. We are celebrating a little today, because Rose and Chris are coming. Pretty exciting!

Current weight is 162.
Weight loss is at 5 lbs.
Current goal is still 155 by end of April, want to be at 159 in 2 days for health screening at work.
Current BMI is around 25.4, should be under 25 to be good.
Body fat to be checked today at noon, will post after. Goal is 15 by end of April.

Finished my Indoor Tri

So I finished my Indoor Tri that I signed up for. 12/14-1/15. Ran 35 miles, biked 113, and swam 2.43. Got me back in the pool for the first time in years. Mostly backstroke to keep the chlorine out of my eyes. Didn't know if I would finish all three. Wouldn't mind doing a sprint tri sometime, but I would need a wetsuit to get in the lake. Don't really have a racing bike either, so maybe in 2012 or something. I think I will try to maintain some bike and swim on my off days for running throughout this year. We'll see how that goes.

Current weight is 166.
Weight loss is at 1 lb.
Goal is still 155. Weighin at work is on 1/24.
Body fat is down from 18.4% to 17.8%. Goal is 15%.
BMI is around 26.1. Goal is to under 25.

New Year, New Challenges

OK. So I am still doing the indoor tri that I signed up for. I have completed the running mileage and I'm working on the bike and swim, while trying to not neglect my runs. I'm doing 11 miles a day on the bike and about 300m in the pool every other day. Made it through the holidays without too much weight gain. I've set my goal to my birthday: 1/24 to be 157 or less, which will put my under my recommended BMI again. That is also the day that my employer has set up for our free health screening, so I won't have to hear them tell me that I need to lose weight, etc.

Current goal: 157 or less by 1/24
Current weight: 168 on 1/5
Actually went from -4 lbs on 12/9 to +1 today by not worrying about what I was eating
during the holidays. Oh well. I will get it in line for this challenge. I'm determined.
