6 Week MILF Challenge

I wrote about my 6 week challenge to myself here, and this will be the page where I keep track of how I’m been doing throughout the six weeks. I have my calorie counter app (MyFitnessPal) set for a 500 calorie deficit per day for a 1#/week loss goal. (I also give myself a -250 adjustment every day to allow for calories burned by breastfeeding.) It auto adjusts my allotted calories both positively and negatively based on my activity as measured by my pedometer (FitBit). I’m trying to average 70k steps/week, but I’m more focused on doing targeted toning workouts and staying within my calorie goals for the next six weeks than anything else.

My starting weight was 156.6#, but that might have been a fluke low weight because I was averaging 158-159 for the most part. I’m curious what that number will be after 6 weeks of hitting it hard! I also took my measurements and will post all of those changes at the end of the 6 weeks.

    1. Done. 🙂 Sorry, my computer cord took a shit and I haven’t had any computer time at home. New cord should arrive today! I need to get better at tracking – been slacking on that and it shows. I don’t mind being over a couple hundred calories from time to time (trying to get my milk back up) but I need to at least be tracking every day!
