New Year measurements and January goals

Saturday, January 03, 2009

Thanks to portion control and a generally active lifestyle now, I have gained only a pound or so since our Sept-Oct vacation (I haven't walked for exercise since we got back, arrgh). Got my Wii Fit in mid-December, a few weeks after we got our Wii, and it has helped me get moving again. On New Year's Day I went on my first good walk in weeks, hurrah!

New Year, new measurements:

Weight 145.5 lb -- up 2.5 since September
Waist 31" -- no change
Hips 42.5" -- no change
Thighs 22 7/8" left, 22 5/8" right -- small losses
** Total inches 119", down 3/4" overall since August **

My baseline = 123 3/4" on May 1, 2008
June 16 = 119 1/8"
August 26 = 119 3/4"

It's not too bad. Not great, but not bad. I'll take it as a starting point for the year.

Today is the final day of a good week of SP team challenges: a balance-game and cardio minutes challenge on the Wii Challenge team, and a fat-and-fiber challenge on a private team. Tomorrow I start the SP New YOU Bootcamp with workout videos and all that stuff. This adds up to a great start to a new year, and I'm looking forward to what's ahead.

P.S. My goals for January and the SP New YOU Bootcamp are to...
- do two workout videos every week,
- stay consistent with at least 30 min of Wii Fit 5 days/week,
- stay consistent with tracking my food daily, and
- get to a consistent 30 min of cardio daily -- Bootcamp video, a walk, Wii Fit work, Wii Sports boxing, or whatever.

    The bootcamp sounds fun! I've yet to implement any type of portion control - perhaps I am part shark??? emoticon
