90 Day Challenge -- 12 Week Update

Last week I completed my 90 day Challenge! However, it's not over yet they extended it another two weeks for the top contenders to battle it out for the the ultimate prize -- one year free gym membership. Eye on the prize. Let's get to the update.

Weight loss:
I killed it the last three weeks and loss 2.9% of body fat which equals 4.75 pounds of fat. Crazy!! Once I dialed in my eating I was dropping pounds like crazy. I'm saving the final before and after for the last weigh-in since it's two weeks away, but I will leave you with the below photo I snapped Saturday night before the Mr and I went to Base Camp Pizza for dinner. Those are my new size 2/26 jeans!

Height: 5'3"
Weight: 140 (3/1); 137 (3/28); 138 (4/18); 139 (5/10); 132 (5/30)

BMI: 30.6% (3/1); 27.9% (3/28); 27% (4/18); 27.25% (5/10); 24.1% (5/30)*
(*results were subtracted from the 4/18 weigh-in) 

Here's the thing -- I thought I was a healthy eater, but apparently I was going about it all wrong! Who knew?! So last month I talked about macro nutrient manipulation and applying it to your body type. Well, I followed it 98% percent of the time over the last three weeks and guess what -- it worked. I dropped five pounds in the first week and a total of seven pounds (on the scale) in three weeks. Those are big number for someone my size. And yes I was eating the entire time.

The trainers also changed/cut my workouts back, because they thought I might have been over training. So I switched out two days of weights with cardio and starting shedding the pounds. Here's my current workout routine:
3 days -- 60 minutes walking/treadmill at a 3.5 pace on a 2-4 incline
2 days -- 60 minute spin class
2 days -- bio fit resistance training (think cross-fit)

I look and feel great. There's nothing better than asking for a smaller size or your clothes fitting better or too big. When  the Challenge is over I might just  have to set a new goal for myself -- I'll still have a few more vanity pounds to lose. Oh -- guess who's in second place -- ME!
