Today was the last of my Define Yourself phase workouts from The Female Body Breakthrough. I really enjoyed the workouts, except for the t push-ups. I do them but I don't like them. My biggest accomplishment in the gym this phase is that I can now do 4 unassisted chin-ups. I did 3 sets of 4 this week :-)
Today I am wearing the size 2P thermometer jeans I bought this week. They are fine. I did eat lunch in them so I CAN wear them and eat. I originally thought they were too tight for that but, um, they are so low cut that I'm guessing lunch is well above the waist band at this point LOL! I'm looking forward to seeing how they look on me as I progress through the second half of the program.
Weight wise I'm maintaining in my range for November. Up some days, down some days. Mostly up on the weekend due to alcohol and unclean eating and then down down down during the week since I try to eat really clean all week. Over time I trend down because of that and, at this point, I don't care how slow the trend is... even if it's ounces a week.
BF%wise, things aren't changing much. As of the start of the month I started taking an average of BF measurements from a handheld unit and my scale because I've noticed that my upper body is VERY lean and my lower body lags behind. I hope over time the gap closes! I don't want to lose much more body fat from my upper body. As with weight, I'm not overly concerned about BF%. I'm between 18 & 20, just where my trainer said a woman of my age and with my gym habits could expect to get to. There's a 1.5-2% spread between upper and lower body. Maybe I am just a pear and will stay one. If I start dipping below 18% on the upper body measurement I'll likely get some advice from my trainer on how NOT to lose more fat so that I don't go too lean up top.
Other than that, things are going well. I'm very happy to be in the place I'm in :-)
