    I know what happened. On Wednesday I had a horrible binge episode, followed by high sodium intakes over the weekend (calories were ok though). I figure I've retained a lot of water that will flush out this week. Regardless, I need to firm up my nutrition this week.

    Did 4 cardio and 3 weight sessions, plus I made a whole week without sugar, a definite plus for me.

    Week 9: 100.4kg Running: 13.5k, 12k, 9.3k
    Week 8: 102.0kg Running: 16.7k, 6.7k

    Missed a week as I was away last weekend and figured I'd just wait and do a double update.

    Diet has been good. It's been a bit up and down since week 1 but the last 3 weeks have been on track.

    Running is also going well. I didnt do a long run last weekend, but did two medium runs at a fast pace. My 12km run was in 1:07m which is my fastest time for that sort of distance so I am happy with my progress. I have a 19k run scheduled for this weekend, hope I do ok ;-)

    ---

    Week 5: 102.5kg Running: 9.7km, 3km, 6km
    Week 4: 103.0kg Running: 5.5km, 4km, 8.2km

    As I expected I lost the water I was retaining from the previous weigh-in. I'm a bit surprised that I had lost that much though-I'll take it. :D I've kept my fitness schedule although it feels like I'm constantly tweaking it.

    Nutrition could use some tightening. I made my calorie goal 6/7 days but only 3/7 days did I get 5 fruits and veggies. I know the issue-I've got to make myself do it.

    Did 3 cardio, 3 lifts, though these were not as intense as I would have liked. Really busy canning/freezing stuff from the garden and market now. BUT I WENT ANOTHER WEEK WITHOUT SUGAR! I notice I'm starting to get a bit more definition in my legs even without working them too hard and I'm sure it's because I'm eating way less junk carbs. Thanks, Ecrivain, that no-sugar challenge you started a few months back made me realize I could do it.:)

    With the exception of Saturday at the in-laws, I did very well with my food. Even then it was a question of quantity, not quality. I did all my lifting and exercising for the week.

    About 4 weeks to go. I don't think I"m going to reach my weight goal but I think I can do the body fat goal.

    Did 3 lift sessions but only 2 cardio, so I failed to meet my goal. But, I didn't eat sugar again for the whole week!
    This Saturday I leave for the week for a vacation at the beach in N.C.
    I plan on exercising plenty, and am taking a few free weights and kettlebells. But, I do intend to have cheesecake! Just giving fair warning so noone will be too disappointed in me....:)

    Week 11: 102.4kg Running: none
    Week 10: 102.0kg Running: 19k, 8k

    Missed another weeks update as I was away for 5 days cross country skiing. That also meant I didn't do any running for Week 11, though we did do about 80km of skiing over 4 days. Unfortunately I got some bad blisters so I haven't been able to get out running yet. I may do a few runs next week but I am off snowboarding the week after so don't want to wreck the feet before that ;-)

    Weight was actually 101.5 this afternoon with BF% down to 22.8% which is a .6% drop over the two weeks, so while it hasn't dropped a lot, and was high this morning when I took my reading, I'm happy as the BF is going down. Even so I wont get near my goal of 95kg by sept 10 but I should get under 100kg if I can get three good weeks in before the finish of the challenge.

    Also, with these blisters I cant run the Adelaide half marathon this weekend. Instead I am thinking of doing the sea to summit which is a 32km trail run on September 12. Might be tough but I figure I can run half and walk half at the very least, and it links in with the end of this challenge nicely.
