Shedding My Pirate Booty Week Nineteen

It's been 134 days since I set sail on my weight loss voyage. I am really enjoying it this time around. It's been nice approaching it as a goal, rather than a burden. 

This past week I stepped up my game by adding in workouts from my Mamavation Mom hazings. These were much more intense than my workouts from past 2 Week Challenges. I also crammed them all in a short amount of time. The hazings started the day after Christmas, but I didn't join in becuase I thought I missed the apication deadline. Once I was able to apply, I busted my butt to get 100% caught up. In a matter of five days I did:

275 Burpees
200 Lunges
155 Weighted Squats
100 Jumping Jacks
100 Kick and Lunges
50 Mountain Climbers
30 Leg Lifts
30 Push-ups
2 minutes of Planking

And that's just my hazings! I also walked a couple miles while pushing the stroller and burned my usual calories from work. I was expecting some great results in the scale, but weary of weight gains from gaining muscle. 

Net Calories for 12/30-01/05

Here's what I earned:

Week Nineteen Results:

Calories Burned Exercising: 3687
Net Calories Consumed: 8966/10,220
Weight Lost:  -1.5 lbs,  -31 lbs total
Current Weight:  197 lbs

I'm happy with those results and I'm excited to see where 2014 takes me! I am already envisioning a healthier me. I've got more hazings this week, then the 2 Week Challenge after that. Hopefully I've also got a 7 week boot camp too. I've started to take a closer look at my diet and I'm realizing I need to make some changes, so the nutrition plan would be wonderful. I'd love if you'd go tell Mamavation I should be the next Mamavation Mom. I'll make my shameless self promotion easy with a sample tweet and posts for you.
