So I was suppose to get measured last weekend, but I went to ABQ to visit the family and Sammy got to meet everyone ( aunts and uncles) so I got weighted this weekend. So its been 5 weeks since I got measured here are the results compaired to last month:
( I weighed myself a couple of days ago @ 182 dont know why the extra gain maybe the milk cookies I ate last night?
body weight 185 (-6 pounds )
body fat % 32 ( - .6%)
BMI 27.3 ( -.9) still overweight but getting better
shoulders 42 ( -2 inches)
chest 39 ( -1 inch)
waist 36.5 ( -1.5 in)
hips 40 ( -1 in)
thigh 22 same need to do more strenght training!
calf 15.5 same
arm 12 (-.5)
total of inches lost 6!
I did cut out dairy to see if it helped with my allergies and Sammy's gas. I tried going vegan, but sometimes I will eat eggs
I guess you could call me " flirting" with being vegan. I think I am eating too may carbs ( I have found that in order for me to lose weight I need to eat more protein and fats and less carbs). So I think I might bring back some dairy for the protein, but I am not sure yet. I am going to try and do a yoga dvd I have twice a week as well....so we will see how that goes.....
I am currently still trying to figure out my workout schedule. I am training for a half marathon which is on Dec 4. I am back to swimming with my masters group which meets at 6 am on Tues and Thurs and 7 am on Sat, but waking up that early for the gym to go running has been hard. I have been running with the jogging stroller instead around 9am and then doing a Jillian Micheals dvd for strenght training after on Mond, Wed, Fri. Sunday is my day for long runs. I want to run more at the gym though since with a jogging stroller is it stop and go the whole time. So here is my plan:
Mon, Wed, Fri- run weights at gym ( 6am - 8 am)
Tues and Tues- swim (6am-7am) yoga dvd at home
Sat- swim (7am- 9 am)
Sun- long run
I might do some spinning on Wed nights if I have time. I was thinking I could also do a Jillian Michaels dvd on Mon, Wed, Fri if I only wake up for enough time to run at the gym and not do weights. I have to be back home by 8 ish since my hubby goes to work around 8:30 am.
Do you guys find it easier to workout in the am, afternoon, or pm? I find that if I don't workout in the am I am just too tired to in the afternoon and pm.
I am hoping that next weigh in I will be in the 170's!!!
Hope everyone has a great weekend!!!
