Improvement Notes: Week 4

Friday, January 24, 2014

Improvement Notes Week 4:
Starting weight=137
Last week=134
This week=133.5

High fives: emoticon
-Lost 1.5 pounds this week!
Yay, I didn't think I was going to lose my pound this week. I had a rest day. I drank a 8-12 glasses of water per day. Weight bounced around each morning this week...was 135.5, staying at 135, then jumped to 137! But I knew the 137 was water. Then 133.5 today!
BMI week 1=25.9
BMI week 2=24.6
BMI week 3=24.7
BMI week 4=
Hopefully I'll see BMI progress too!
-I can feel that I lost some weight on my sides and on my bootie!
-I exercised 5 mornings for at least 60 minutes (yoga, zumba or walking)
-I also did 5 afternoons of walking in the evenings 60-80 minutes with my dog and a friend (my other dog is resting her paw).
-Ate 1200-1500 calories 6/7 days (1 social day challenged me and I went over my calorie budget)
-I got right back on track with my routines after the over calorie day and decided to forget about the small bump in the road.
-Eating a lot of dark green salads, vegetables, quinoa, fruit and nuts
-Drinking water at meals and tea in between and finally reach the 8 glasses of water goal
-I started an arm weights routine, with very light weights just to start building the habit. I am careful to manage any neck pain.
-I am learning how to prepare different healthy foods and it is fun!

Challenges:
-Feel like a large girl in the gym mirror during yoga.
-I went to a wedding and went over in calories that day.
-I want to tone my arms, but worried about my neck pain flaring up.
-I get impatient about wanting the pounds to come off.
-I see how flabby my arms look when held up.

Improvement Notes:
-Focus on clear skin, hourglass body shape and muscle tone as I work on achieving a leaner physique!
-Stay on track with the good habits I have developed so far and feel good about my efforts!
-Keep improving my repertoire of healthy recipes in order to have a variety of food to choose from to prevent boredom.
-Continue to read about weight loss so I can visualize my goals and continue to improve with greater purpose.
-Redoubled my thoughts on the importance of maintaining an arm weights routine. Scheduled arm workouts.

    Bookaphile....I did my BMI weigh in earlier in the week on the gym scale when my weigh seemed to be fluctuated up a tad. I guess it's not a real accurate fat reader? Who knows?

    You're doing very well.
I'm confused about the BMI going up when your weight went down. Did the calculator change your height? It only seems to want to use whole numbers with me, so it adds that last 1/4 inch. lol. I have to force it to get the right reading.
