Week of 6/22/11 recap

Had another good weigh-in today... 142, which means I lost 2.5 pounds this week (taking me 9 pounds away from goal now). I take my waist measurement every week too, and it dropped 3/4 of an inch this week.

My stomach skin feels even looser than usual, which means I can tell my waist is getting smaller. Yay! Also, my body fat percentage dropped 1.2%. All the working out I've been doing has been helping, I'm sure. If I get in 3 miles today and 3 miles tomorrow, I'll have accumulated 100 miles in June! I've only done that once before, and that was in October. However, I cannot wait to take a rest day on July 1st :)

I successfully counted calories all week, with the exception of my one day off (which I took on Saturday). My calories counts were as follows:

June 25th may have been a little higher, but I estimated pretty well I think. A pretty good week overall. Total calories were 10,772.

Mileage this week:
Wed- 3
Thu- 3
Fri- 2
Sat- 6  (run outside)
Sun- 3
Mon- 3  (run outside)
Tue- 3  (run outside)

Calorie deficit from food: 1128 (with 1700/day as a baseline)
Calorie deficit from exercise: 2690 (not counting strength training)
Calorie debt payoff for the week: 3818

Is anyone getting annoyed that I've been posting every single day? I hope not. One person commented that they liked the frequent posts, so hopefully it's a good thing.


  1. I check your blog every day to see if you posted - so keep up the frequency!

    Hey Katie,
    I just wanted to tell you that you have at least one person from Germany who loves reading your posts: Me :-)
    I check your blog everyday so I love the fact that you are very active at the moment! (somehow, that sounds weird...) :-)
    anyway, have a great day and greetings from Bavaria!

  4. Nice job - a great week - but no rest? Don't forget a rest day in there each week. It's needed to keep you healthy.

  5. Looks like you had a great week! Congratulations!

    Hi Katie!
    I am one of your "sparkfriends -jennygump21" and I have recently checked out your runsforcookies.com and I look forward to your posts everyday. : )

  9. Great job this week and on the 100 miles!

    I don't mind the daily posting at all. I'm used to book bloggers, and they all tend to post at least 5x a week. :)

  10. I'm enjoying your posts so post as often as you want!

    I love reading your posts! I followed you over from Spark :) I love that you are all into the numbers and deficits and such... I thought I was the only crazy person who was obsessed with numbers!

  12. I check every day so when it is new I go YAY! :D so keep it up!

  13. I like frequent posts, I just haven't had time to catch up on blogs lately!

    Congrats on the loss btw!! I am trying *oh-so-hard* to motivate myself to get back on track. I honestly can't remember the last time I stayed within my calorie limit. So frustrating!

  14. Awesome job with the loss!!!


I used to publish ALL comments (even the mean ones) but I recently chose not to publish those. I always welcome constructive comments/criticism, but there is no need for unnecessary rudeness/hate. But please--I love reading what you have to say! (This comment form is super finicky, so I apologize if you're unable to comment)
