Shrinkvivor - Weigh-In #5

It is now the end of week 4 in our Shrinkvivor challenge.  I am loving how dedicated and supportive my Tribe Navy Seals sisters have been.  I ♥ these girls! This week, our physical challenge was to log as many miles on our feet as we could.  This wasn't exactly the best week for this challenge as I am now in "taper" mode for my 1/2 Marathon which is coming up on Sunday ohmygod I think I'm going to barf.  Even so, I did manage to log 13.1 miles this week.  When I reported that to my tribe yesterday, I realized how ironic it was that I logged EXACTLY the number of miles I will be running in holycrap 4 days.   

Our non-physical challenge was to continue to drink our water (doing great there-seriously keeping up on hydration), get in 5 fruits and veggies every day (yup), and log all of our intake...oops, I only did that for 2 days.  (That was a conscious decision.  I need to make sure to fuel my body and I did not want to get caught up in cutting calories this week.)

So how did I do this week? Let's take a look at the numbers:

Weight on June 23, 2009: 165.8
Challenge Starting Weight: 141.6
Last Week's Weight: 138.4
This Week's Weight: 137.4

Change This Week: down 1.0
Change For Shrinkvivor Challenge: down 4.2
Total Pounds Gone: 28.4

Yea, I dropped another pound this week!  Good thing, too, because I fully intend to partake in ALL the post-race festivities on Sunday.  Immediately after there will be New Holland beer and Wendy's chili, along with the usual assorted fruits and Gatorade.  Later in the day, one of the local bars, Hop Cat, is having a Grand Rapids Marathon after-party, with drink and food specials for anyone wearing their finisher medals. How cool is that?!? After a nice shower, you'll be able to find me there having some more New Holland beer and an order of Crack Fries.
