It's Been a Long Time!

Wednesday, June 18, 2014

Here I am again. I haven't posted any here in ages...and ages.

On Monday I am having surgery to fix my abdominal muscles and remove the excess skin from my weight loss! I can't believe it is really happening! I am excited and pertrified at the same time.

Afterwards I'll have to recover and then it'll be back to my old workouts and finally seeing the real progress I have always wanted. Without that extra skin I will be able to accomplish my waist goals a lot easier. So excited for the future!

Super creative title there, right?!?

Just a quick drop in because I hate tracking my food, but I need to have an idea of what I am eating to see where I may want to make some changes.

B: steak, hardboiled egg and a bit of seaweed salad with spicy dressing (the mayo kind you put on sushi)

S: one square dark chocolate

L: steak-um with cheddar and onions, cheese stick, rest of steak (small piece)

two cups of coffee with heavy cream and a banana

I worked out today.
5 minutes fast walking
20 mins 'lifting':
kettlebell squats 2 x 10 with 18#
weighted lunges, 1 x 10, 8#
wall push-ups, 1 x15, 1 x 20
counter push-ups, 1 x 15
over head press with 8#, 1 x 12

Later I did 30 seconds of wall sits. Will do some pre-determined time of squat jumps at home later.

    LOL how's that "post more often" working for you? I understand though. I've been off for quite a while. Hope you're doing well.

I really should try to get back here and post more frequently!

Life has been pretty good lately. I started lifting this week. You know, the 'real' kind :)

I did squats, lumberjack press and chest press on Wednesday. Today was dead lifts, chin-ups and dips. I already know I need to increase my weights, especially for the lower body stuff. I am going to have to venture into the weight room because the weighted bars in the workout room are too light for me.

I still have the same goals, 20-22% body fat and under 150 pounds. I am currently at 155 pounds, so my weight goal is almost there. I was at 28% body fat the other day using the impedance scale at the gym. It gave me about 42 pounds of body fat. When I did the math the percentage was actually 27.5%. My lean mass is around 112 pounds. To get to 20% BF at 145 pounds, I will need 116 pounds of lean. So, that is what I am shooting for. I still need to lose 13 pounds of fat though! That means I will probably lose about 6 more pounds of lean since lean includes water and fat has about 1 pound of water for every 2 pounds of fat. So, I need to add about 10 pounds of muscle. I wonder how long that will take for an old lady?

I will be focusing on getting enough protein. My goal is 1 gram for every pound of my goal lean body mass, 116 grams per day. Some days this is really easy and others days it seems like it is really difficult. It might take a little more planning to get the protein everyday. I am going to eat my protein first and then eat my veggies, that way I'll make the protein goal everyday.

March 2010 vs March 2011

Thursday, March 24, 2011

I have weighed basically the same amount for a long time. Last year I weighed 154 pounds on March 12th. Today I weigh 154.5.

Last year I had 26.5% body fat.

This year I have 24%.

I don't care what the scale says. My clothes say and my measurements say...BETTER!
