Encouraging Measurements Day! Huge Surprise!
Friday, February 01, 2013
Today, I did my monthly measurements and official weigh in. I was sorta looking forward to it because I FEEL so much ..leaner? My posture is better automatically so I assumed that was the cause. I only lost 2 pound this entire month so I wasn't expecting much.
Last month, I lost 6 pounds and 2 inches. I was super happy about it, those 2 inches were the most I have ever lost! And I have NEVER lost pounds before. But this month, I lost only 2 pounds..and SIX INCHES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
!!!!!!! SIX! That is amazing! That goes to show you, the scale is worthless! I have been doing a lot of strength training, I didn't lose more than two pounds because I gained some muscle! So now, in total, I am down 8lb, 8 inches. I am stoked..I can't believe it!
I am not entirely happy that 1.5 of it was off my girls but that was expected lol. My arms havent budged at all..but I think they look better. I think I am packing on muscle and the fat is coming off, but slower that I am putting on muscle. They don't look so flabby anymore. Since I have cut back on booze, the measurement around my belly button is going down quick. Good motivation! I am looking forward to seeing the scale go under 150. That should happen next week..because I am stepping it up hard core with the cardio! I am right at 150 now.
My sad news of the day..I am pretty sure I have a concussion. I do not have health insurance and I can't pay out of pocket to go to the doctor either. I got hit right in the temple by an iron headboard last Friday. All week I have had headaches and nausea but the worst part is, I get sudden and intense fatigue! I have been sleeping 10 to 12 hours a night. I had a nurse friend check my pupils and she said they responded well but were dilated. I work 40 hours a week, I shouldn't have to worry about health insurance :(. Canada has it all figured out!
