Since more than one person asked me what a "Hush Puppy" was -- I've posted the PICTURE and a link at the bottom to the Wikipedia entry about Hush Puppies. Basically they are delicious, and the ones at the place I went have whole pieces of corn in them as well.
ANYWAY! NON FOOD TOPIC NOW.
So today's weigh-in was ok. I'm not going to the gym again tonight -- after talking with DH, it seems like a good decision. I really really feel like I'm on the brink of getting sick and I know I'll be at work tomorrow from probably 8-9AM till 10PM... so I think it's best right now so I don't wear myself ragged. :( It's just a bummer because I really miss it and it's bugging me right now, but it's good to be aware and careful with your health.
ANYWAY! Back to the weigh-in! I'm down 1.4lbs from last week (last week's weigh-in was technically 193.6 but my BLC challenge does .5lb increments so I rounded it down). for the BLC challenge I'm rounded down again this week to 192, but I felt like .2 was too big to round down for my SP weigh-in so I put it in as is. But now I'm only 2.2lbs away from 100lbs lost! WOOHOO!!!! :)
The best thing is that now that I'm able to track body fat percentage... I can know that I did not lose any muscle mass last week. :D In fact, I lost 2.4lbs of body fat and gained 1lb of lean muscle mass!!! I don't know if that's accurate or not to the T, but I definitely know that I was losing fat and not muscle last week and that makes me very happy. I'm going to do my ST at home tonight so I make sure I'm keeping that up even if I have to take a cardio break due to scheduling and potentially getting sick concerns... I want to keep improving that body fat composition.
I'm using this thing that a SparkPeople.com member created -- MHENNE02. It's called "Gripiron Fitness League" (at gripiron.com), and basically you enter your stats (weight, measurements, body fat % and water %) and it calculates all your lean tissue mass, dry lean mass, body fat mass, etc. And based on the workouts you report and your measurement reports you earn points, and people get ranked. It seems pretty awesome so far. :) EDITED TO ADD: There's apparently a sparkteam for it and a Spark League on the site? I'm in the generic GripIron league. *shrug* oh well. hahahah :)
ANYWAY! I may not have to work this weekend OR next weekend which would be AWESOME considering all the OT I'm getting during the week. I need to make sure to discuss this with folks tomorrow to make sure...
