End of April Measurements and Plans for May
Thursday, April 26, 2012
My arms are so much more toned after 10 days of the 30 Day Shred. There's less jiggle and more muscle overall so I'm happy with them.
L. Arm - 12"
R. Arm - 11.5"
Hahaha, I think all those chest flys helped to increase my bust line. I gained about 1.5". :)
Bust - 34.5"
Under Bust - 29.5"
Agh, my stomach must go. But that's what May is for!
Natural Waist - 29"
Stomach - 33.5"
I loss 0.5" off my hips and each thigh!! ^o^ All those terrible, terrible squats and lunges are paying off.
Hips/Butt - 42"
L. Thigh - 25"
R. Thigh - 25"
L. Calf - 16"
R. Calf - 16"
This was sort of a yo-yo month for me. It started off slow with a lot of binge eating so I ended up gaining 4.8 pounds in 2 weeks. Two weeks!! I was so grossed out but I kept drinking my water. Controling what went into my mouth and drinking as much water as possible helped me to shed 2.5 of those pounds. Then I started the 30 Day Shred and after 14 days I'm back down to 165, where I started at the beginning of the month. :) Regardless of the weight fluctuations, I'm happy to see that I lost some inches this month so it wasn't a total waste. There are 4 more days in the month... I'm going to try and lose one more pound for a net loss of 1.
May will be dedicated to Paleo. I want to try again and hopefully make it through the whole month this time. I will be doing a 90-95% Paleo diet with some carb cycling to keep my body guessing. I will finish levels 2 and 3 of the 30 Day Shred and then begin a new program. I hope by the end of May to be between 158 - 160 pounds. I will also be concentrating on my arms and stomach. I would like to lose an inch off of each upper arm by increasing lean muscle and decreasing fat. Hopefully my stomach will naturally flatten out due to my clean eating. I will also continue to drink at least 8 cups of water each day.
