Week 8 Update

This was my first week of roller derby, and it was more or less exactly what I expected: really hard, and really awesome. Everyone in the class, from the other girls on skates on up to the trainers, are patient, positive and supportive. Even when I was falling on my ass, one girl kept telling me, "You're doing a great job!" It's challenging without being competitive, and I'm already seeing myself improve. Don't get me wrong, it's hard work - there's lots of sweating during practice and aches and pains afterwards - but it's fun hard work, and so far I'm really enjoying it.

So, without further ado...

Week 8
Total weight loss: 4.5 pounds (that's 1 more pound this week!)
Number of workouts: 5 (1 day of cardio at the gym, 2 roller derby practices, 2 days of circuit training at the gym)
Number of days at or under 1600 calories: 5

The roller derby practices seem to have made a difference this week. It also helped that I avoided eating out much and planned my meals pretty carefully. Overall, a very successful week!
