Poor Timing

Thursday, June 07, 2012

I've been doing great with being on track so far this month. I'm excited because I know that's taking me in the right direction to make this a habit, a lifestyle change, and not just a one time effort to hit a goal for a bikini. It's been about two weeks since my last measurements, and I (poorly) decided to tape up this morning.

Today was not a good day to decide that. I say that not because the results were bad: as a matter of fact they were the same as they were two weeks ago (which was a bit sad) Today I have been bloated like crazy. I thought I felt a bit of it this morning, but as the day progressed it's just been like a grey cloud over me. It was causing stomach pains earlier, and overall the pressure in my midsection is just unpleasant. So I did not record todays measurements. I mentally noted that nothing changed, and today was a bad day to worry about it. I am eating some yogurt as a snack to help fight the bloat, I have been drinking lots of water, and I'm going to go on a run here in a few minutes with the dog.

I'm hoping this feeling is gone by tomorrow. I would like to take measurements soon, but I'm thinking I'll wait another week before trying again. And pick a time when I'm not bloated.

On the bright side, KisaKatt and I are doing a bang-up job keeping each other motivated so far for our most recent challenge! I've lost our last two challenges, so I'm pretty determined to win this one! I already owe her dinner and a drink in Puerto Rico, so the least I can win is a Starbucks date (our current prize, since we like to chat and make craft/fitness plans over coffee). I plan to let her treat me to one of the mini cherry pies they have, since I've been dying to try them! emoticon

So lets keep up the fire Kelsey! I'm gonna go on my run, chill for a bit, then go to the Yoga class at the gym later tonight! You tell me - one workout or two? Should we maybe only count one per day? Or if we do one workout and then another one at a different time of the day should we count both? Assuming they're solid workouts of 20+ minutes each of course.

    Well so far I've only been counting number of workouts with an app I have on my phone to tally it up. I'm not sure how I'd keep track of number of workouts and number of days. Usually I only do one a day, but this will be the second time this month I'll have done two in one day.

    I need to weigh in less, since I tend to do it daily since my scale is right inside my bathroom door. I figured I'd measure every 2 weeks or so, but I'm not sure if that's how I'll do it consistently or not. I did take 'before' photos though! I plan to take my 'After' (or in progress) at the end of Summer.

    P.S. I only take full measurements once a month. I get on the scale every few days though. I thought measurements would be a better way to measure things but I don't know for sure. I have lost a couple of inches on my waist/hips since January, but very little from my arms and thighs (where I really want to see improvement)

    Hmmm maybe we can make this a two part challenge? Person who works out the most DAYS buys the coffee and person who has the most WORKOUTS (really though, only two allowed per day and they must be solid, no walking the dog!) buys a mini treat for the other person?
