For anyone new to Blonde on a Budget, #pfworkout is a hashtag personal finance bloggers use on Twitter to share exercise, weight loss and healthy living accomplishments. Each month, I set personal goals and post updates on my progress.
My goal for this month was to workout 5 days/week and, for once, I actually made this happen! While one week I only worked out 4 times, all the other weeks had 5 or 6 workouts pencilled on the calendar. And I have definitely seen some results.
This month, I:
- worked out 22 times in 19 days (including today)
- ate an average of 1415.7 calories each day (tracked on LoseIt!)
- lost 3.2 lbs.
- lost 2″ (including an entire inch off my waist)
Adding my previous numbers, I’m down a total of 18.2 lbs. and 12 inches. And do you know what that means? I’m officially in the 180’s! I had to retire my first workout shirt, because it’s way too big now, and am close to throwing in the towel on my one and only pair of Lululemon capris. If I have to pull them up during one more run, my workout buddy might witness a mini freakout.
So, what’s in store for August? I’m just going to stay on track with what I was doing this month and hopefully I will see my total loss reach 20 lbs. August 28th marks 6 months of #pfworkouts and I’d love to celebrate with a 21 lb. loss.
