Shedding My Pirate Booty Week Thirty-Seven

Last week I was coming off such a high of losing 4 pounds and I was determined to keep that momentum going. I have been going strong with my #2WeekChallenge and I got in my scheduled two runs. I smashed my previous best times too! 

My new best running times. Killed it!
Seriously, TWO miles under 10 minutes!
With that big weight loss last week, I also had to recalculate my calories with My Fitness Pal. I lost another 30 calories a day (210/week). This drop in calories the past few weeks has been a challenge. I am not sure what I should be consuming. My Mamavation Bootcamp allotted me more calories than My Fitness Pal (1700-1900), so I have been eating closer to that range. I try to stick with 1600-1800 now, but it's making my charts look not so good.

That doesn't look so good, See how Shedding My Pirate Booty is coming along this week.

I did have two splurge days this week though. I had a moms night out that had food and snacks, and Mother's Day. I went a little overboard on Mother's Day brunch desserts, but that's my thing. This week will be back to normal, so I should bounce right back.

Week Thirty-Seven Results: 

Calories Burned Exercising: 3158
Net Calories Consumed: 10,043/9520
Weight Lost:  +2.5 lbs,  -55 lbs total
Current Weight:  173 lbs

So I gained 2.5 pounds. I burned a ton more calories this week, but I also ate more. I know that the #2WeekChallenge is really working my muscles, so they are most likely holding on to some water as well. I am not in any way discouraged because it all makes sense. Coming off a big loss week is always tough. I'm going to keep on doing what has been working for me that past 260 days. 


I'd love to hear what you've got to say. Please leave a comment and I'll do my best to reply to them all.
