9 Week Challenge - Week 5
WEEK 5 COMPLETED - 5th week of my 9 week challenge is completed and the scale has been nothing but a tease to me this past week.
For once during my 9 week challenge I began to see some positive progress as my fat % dropped to 16% - 17% during the middle of the week, unfortunately that didn't hold at the end of the week when it came time for the official weigh in. I blame Elen's birthday celebration since we celebrated with lots of food on Sunday just before the official weigh in. =P
Regardless of the official weigh in results, I'm encouraged to finally see that all my efforts in the past 5 weeks have shown positive results even if the results are slow coming. I hope for this week I will be able to drop it down to 16% - 17% again and maintain it there till the end of the week.
Most of my training for this week came in the form of badminton as I had an all day tournament this past weekend. I hope the weather will continue to be good this coming week so that I can take advantage of doing some more running outside. With only 4 weeks left of my training I have to take advantage of every nice weather I get, there's just something about running that seems to burn the fat more effectively than other aerobic exercises.
Highlight of this week's training and final weigh in:
- Approx. 2 hrs of weight training.
- Approx. 6 kms of running.
- Approx. 14 hrs of badminton.
Final weigh in for this week:
- 162.5 lbs (plus 0.5 lb from previous week).
- 18% body fat (fat % unchanged from previous week).
