March 2 Updates
Saturday, March 02, 2013
-Received my new scale a couple of days ago. In the past couple of weeks, my body fat has dropped 1.5-3% yet my weight is a couple of pounds higher. It could be scale variance, however my sister's husband has commented he can tell that I am looking more toned with the bathroom renovation work I have been doing. Now that I have a scale, I can track specific results more consistently. I'll have more accurate results once I have a 7 day average of the bodyfat #'s.
-Still keeping up my goal of working out 6 days a week w/strength work, however this week I am using the remodeling work as my workouts. I was wearing myself out trying to do both a normal workout and 8 hours of renovations each day. Also made me realize I was falling into a semi-rut with my routines and I'd like to change things up more frequently.
-Snacking and not tracking foods has gotten worse this week. Renovation makes me super hungry. Weight loss is at least 65-70% diet, so... need to improve. Mom still leaving snack foods... everywhere.
-Having trouble gauging how many calories I burn doing renovation work. Am considering getting another Bodymedia device or maybe a Fitbit. My Bodymedia device died shortly after I jumped on the pool with it last fall. Grrr. When I am not doing renovation work and just doing my own workouts, I think I do a pretty good job of calorie estimation on my own.
-Still need to lose the last 15 lbs. IT IS ANNOYING!
-Have somewhat lost sight of my goals during this renovation. One thing I need to improve up is keeping focus on my own goals when a big project comes up. I sometimes get OCD with completing the project and my goals fall to the side of the road. Hope to get the bathroom renovation done this weekend so I can re-focus on my workouts and other goals.
Ok, all for now. Have a great weekend everyone!
