Great weigh-in today!

I was very happy to see the scale drop quite a bit this week. I weighed in a 144.5, which is down 3.5 pounds from last week. This is the lowest number I've seen since I got home from Indy at the beginning of May.

Calorie counts for the week:
6/17 was my day off from tracking--but I had about 4,000 calories. Yikes!
 Total:  11,832 calories

With the exception of Friday, my calories were pretty low. While I was losing weight before, I was eating probably about 1600 calories per day. This week, I just tried to stay in my calorie range given by Sparkpeople, which is 1200-1550. I figured since I had such a high calorie day on Friday, that eating at the low-end of the range the rest of the week was best. Daily average ended up being 1690.

Mileage this week:
Wed- 2.0
Thu- 3.5
Fri- 3.0
Sat- 2.0
Sun- 7.0
Mon- 3.0
Tue- 2.0

Calorie deficit from food: 68 (with 1700 as a baseline)
Calorie deficit from exercise: 2516 (not counting strength training)
Calorie debt payoff for the week:  2584

I feel like I'm getting my mojo back in full-swing. I'm really excited to get back to the 130's. I feel very uncomfortable in the 140's. And since I declared 133 my "official" goal weight, I'm psyched to see it on the scale again soon!

  2. Great job Katie!! 3.5 lbs is wonderful!

    You just commented on my blog so I know you saw that my attempts to eat less this week (which were more like 1500 than 1200 calories) resulted in two days of over-eating and binging - I just can't do it! I'm sure my average ended up being closer to 1700-1750 if you factored in my two really bad days...

    You are awesome! I am just barely getting out of the 140s right now and so excited about it. 4,000 calories is also epic. :)

    Thanks Christina! And actually, only two of those days were runs (3 miles and 7 miles). The rest was interval walking on the dreadmill. I made a goal to cover 270 miles this summer, which is roughly 3 miles per day, so that is the only reason I've been working out so much lately. In the fall, I definitely plan on going back to 3 days a week of running outside :)
