Shedding My Pirate Booty Week Twenty-Seven Update

This weekly update is a complicated one to write. It is the final results from Mamavation Bootcamp 18. I had a great experience throughout the entire seven weeks, and I'm sad to see it end.

What is even harder than bootcamp ending, it having a week with the stats I had. I have been pretty disciplined all seven weeks, so having less than "perfect" numbers the final week is not how I would have liked to go out. 

Week Twenty-Seven Results:

Calories Burned Exercising: 2822
Net Calories Consumed: 10,205/10,290
Weight Lost:  -1 lbs,  -45.5 lbs total
Current Weight:  182.5 lbs

I attended an amazing blog conference this past weekend, Women Get Social. (So much more on that later) I planned and prepped by bringing snacks, my workout gear, and making time to get my scheduled workout in. However, what I just couldn't do was move. Conferences are a LOT of sitting, for hours. All. Day. Long. I just couldn't get my steps in. I thought it might be rude if I jogged around the conference hall during speakers.

As far as calories go, you can see I stuck to it on Thursday at the Millennial Blogs #SMsummit. Even that shorter day of WGS on  Friday I stayed within my calorie goal. However, Saturday went from 8am-8pm, and I prepared none of my meals, as they were provided to me. I also ate my free cheesecake. I don't really feel bad about that. It was really damn good, and one slice won't derail me from my goals.

Let me be clear that I am still happy I lost a pound. That's always welcome. It just not the showing I would've liked as the ending of a fabulous campaign.

I want to change the somewhat negative feeling about the week and look at the great things I accomplished. I ran a freaking 5K on Sunday! It was awesome and I ended with a time of exactly 35:00. That's 11:29 per mile. Sweet. 

I have a full vlog and the top 10 things I learned up on Mamavation that I would love you to check out. I think I finally felt comfortable in front of the camera, of course for my final video. I had fun writing my top 10s too. Very David Letterman of me. There is also a side by side comparison of my before and after pics. I changed much more than I thought.

I will ABSOLUTELY be continuing the Shedding My Pirate Booty series, and it will most likely be moving back to Mondays, as that was my old weigh in day. I still have 3 goals to hit. I think of those goals like this:

  1. "I HAVE to get there" weight
  2. "I would like to get there" weight
  3. "Hell yeah, I got there" weight
I'm not sharing these numbers yet, but I will after I reach them. Thank you for all your support during bootcamp and this whole journey. Please show my Mamavation Bootcamp Sistas +Dee Copeland and +Toni Carrigan some love too here:
