Week five of the 20 in 20 challenge is finished! Only 15 to go! End goal is 140 for me.

First, my weight:

  • High of 155.6
  • Today’s weight: 154.1
  • Weekly average: 155.1
  • Total loss so far: 4.9 lbs (based on average)

Weekly goals:

  • Drinks 6/7 Goal: Black coffee, water, perhaps pocari sweat, and my post-workout choco milk. Cappuccinos are okay so long as I account for them, calorie-wise. One beer this week and one flavored coffee drink.
  • Exercise 5/6 Goal: 4 days of BJJ (I CAN go: today, Sunday, M, T, W, F – so if I hit 4/6 I’m at goal, more = bonus points!), 2 days to the gym. Awesome. Went to BJJ 4 days, hit the gym 1. The reason I didn’t get the gym goal is because of the typhoon.
  • Diet 2/10- Five days of 1400 calories. Six days of no pasta/rice/bread/sugar. Oy vey. Diet fail this week. Monday I had candy at work, Tuesday I didn’t track, Wednesday I had beer and some french fries. Thursday I had bibimbap with a friend. Yesterday my food intake was fine, but I didn’t track.
  • Sleep 5/5: 6 hours 5 nights this week. Yes! Made my goal! I only had 4.5 hours of sleep one night, but the rest were 6, 6.5 or 7 hours.
  • Vision board: I joined Pinterest and got some very inspiring pictures. Awesome.

Successes/challenges:

  • Success: My exercise goals
  • Success: Maintaining a net weight loss
  • Success: Finding a BJJ drilling partner
  • Challenge: Really lost motivation on tracking calories
  • Challenge: Eating eating eating

Next week’s goals:

  • Five days of 1400 calories.
  • Six days of no pasta/rice/bread/sugar.
  • Drinks: Black coffee, water, perhaps pocari sweat, and my post-workout choco milk. One beer is okay.
  • Exercise: 4 classes of BJJ (I CAN go: today, Sunday, M, W, Th – so if I hit 4/6 I’m at goal, more = bonus points!), 2 days to the gym.
  • Sleep: 6 hours 5 nights this week. Bonus if I get 7 or more. Minus if I oversleep.

Oops – accidental mohawk courtesy of my Korean stylist who insisted it was not and that he “didn’t like mohawk style.” Ah well.
