BLC Beginning Measurements

Tuesday, September 16, 2014

I took measurements this morning for the start of BLC, and needless to say I was not happy. I am going to look on the bright side and be happy that I at least know what my starting point is now. I can work on getting the inches to go down.

R Arm - 14.5
L Arm - 14
R Thigh - 25
L Thigh - 25
Chest (under bust) - 38
Waist at belly button - 44
Hips - 47

I am participating in two BLC challenges this time, and while that will be a lot to keep up with, I really want to do it.

My goals for BLC
Lose 14 lbs
Lose 5 inches total - aim high right :)
Track my food everyday
300 fitness minutes a week
Drink my water everyday.

Ok so my daily accountability blogs are gonna need to be more like weekly plans of attack with a recap at the end of the week. This week I only show a .2 lb loss and it upsets me but it is probably bloat and TOM. I am struggling this week to stick to lower carbs and have had a headache for about 3 days. Low carb used to be so easy lol. Today is going to be a higher carb day, we are having a going away lunch for two co workers, and I know there won't be a lot of healthy options. Such is life, and I need to learn how to deal with having a bad food day and not letting it turn into a bad food week/month/ year.

Since BLC weeks are Wednesday- Tuesday here is my plan of attack for this week.

Wednesday - planned higher calorie/carb day
Thursday - fasting day
Friday - low carb
Saturday - low carb
Sunday - low carb skip the cake at the bday party for my niece
Monday - fasting day
Tuesday - low carb

Fitness goals -
300 minutes total

    I typically stay under 500 calories on a fasting day.

    I'm looking to tweak my diet to help me loose more. I love the idea of journaling daily and focusing on low carb. On your "fasting" days are you eating at all? Juicing? I'm looking for some tips!

I took my carb reload on Saturday, I really felt I needed it. Now I am scared to check the scale, so I am staying away from it until tomorrow morning.

I met all of my goals Friday except the calendar... Will do that tonight after work.

Today's goals:
45 mins of cardio
30 mins of strength
1 gallon of water
under 45 net carbs
