coming clean :: week eight

My target weight loss is 20 ~ 25 lbs. (approx. 9 ~ 11 kgs.) by May 2009. But à la 'The Biggest Loser', instead of going by overall weight lost, I'll be posting it as percentage of body weight lost. The results are... :: drum roll please ::

target % weight loss : 13.16% ~ 16.45%
week one % weight loss: 2.30%

week two % weight loss: 0%
week three % weight loss: 0.67%
week four % weight loss: 2.03%
week five % weight loss: [on vacay - recorded as 0%]
week six % weight loss: [on vacay - recorded as 0%]
week seven % weight loss: -1.04%
week eight % weight loss: -0.34%
total % weight loss: 3.63%

Oopsies... I'm going in the wrong direction, aren't I? Weight-wise, I've been pretty consistent this past week. But 'naughty points'-wise, I've been off the charts!

As for my Cherry Blossom 10 Miler training program progress, I got a little behind a few days (see 'red velvet cupcake' stars) but got all of the workouts done. Hopefully you'll see a lot more 'vanilla cupcake' stars in the weeks to come. I've already switched Saturdays and Sundays workouts, and might have to do the same with Mondays and Tuesdays ones. But I will get them done!

P.S. My scale actually looks like that, only it's not digital and it didn't cost me 80 clams. Some times, you can find nifty things at Target!
