So naturally I am not going to see a whole lot of difference on the scale, maybe less than a lb on a weekly bases so why not take measurements :) I'm not so concerned with my upper body so I figured I will focus on lower body measurements only from the small of my waist to my upper thighs. I have an omron so I'll do body fat, but because that can change with body water content Measurements will be my true gauge.
I have decided that Saturday will be my cheat day, so every Saturday morning I will do measurements and weight in along with omron body fat stats. So here goes :)
June 16th 105.6 lbs 16.8% body fat Waist 24 Navel 26 Butt/Hips 34 Right and Left thigh 19.25
So goals is to loss maybe a couple of lbs while I shave a few inches from my lower body. I know I need more specific goals so ideally I would like to lose 3/4 inches from my waist and navel, a full inch from my butt/hips and about 1/2 inch from both thighs. Weight i would be happy with 103 lbs or so.
So here goes :) I'll report weekly, every Saturday my stats.

I'm at goal and need to track and excercise daily. So far so good. This may help me along the way so I'll join you. Sandy
A day at a time and I will reach my goal. I am not perfect but I will forgive myself for the mistakes I make. Life is full of choices and sometimes we don't always make the best ones but that's what makes us human.

Today was another great workout at the gym. started off with 15 min on the elliptical at a good intense level really workig on the glutes. 40 minutes of just hurting my hamstrings, glutes and quads followed with 20 minutes of climbing stairs. As a result burned over 450 calories. Stretching felt so great!!!
So mid-day and I headed straight to the gym after dropping my daughter off at school :) I did 20 min on the EFX and spent another 25 minutes doing chest and shoulders. Did a hard core strength class and burned another 220 calories. Feeling great and my meals so far have been up to par. Goal is to eat every 3 hours and balance out my fat/protein/carb content. Aim to drink 1 gallon of what -- so far I am up to 10 cups. Getting there :)
Back to tracking food, exercise and being accountable. I do really well - but sometimes tracking and seeing y progress makes all the difference. So there is 35 days till my 35th birthday :) Seems fitting to start today. I do well with short term goals as well so I can manage 35 days, right? :) 35 days of tracking....... works for me. Got to start somewhere :)
Feel free to follow along and join me. The more the merrier
