March Measurements and goals- and question about dinners
Wednesday, March 07, 2012
So this a little late... but with a baby, working out and work its hard to get anything done on time now! I got measured on 3-1-12 compared to my measurements I posted in November of 2011:
Nov 14, 2011 March 1, 2012 Difference
body weight 181 170.8 (- 10.2)
body fat % 31.6 25.4 ( -6.2 )
BMI 26 25.2 ( -.8 ) ( almost normal again!)
shoulders 43 42 ( -1)
chest 38 36 (-2)
waist 36 32.5 (-3.5 )
hips 41 39 (-2)
thigh 23 22 ( -1)
calf 16 15.5 ( -.5)
arm 13 13 (same)
Slow progress, but at least its something! I can't wait to get out of the 170's! It seems like I have been in the 170's since January! I would like to be in the 150's when I run my marathon at the end of April ( April 28), but I don't know if that is possible....
As for keeping my goals that I set for the new year: I have tried a new veggie each month... January was baby beet greens, and February was turnips! Both were from the local co-op and where grown locally on the co-op farm! Here are my goals for March:
1. To get out of the 170's! I want to see the 160's!
2. I have been getting to bed by 10pm ( what was my goal for January) but now I think I need to get to bed earlier ..... 9:30pm bed time!
3. I have been good about getting most of my workouts done in the am so I want to continue this to be a goal for March
4. I am going to try and batch cook on the weekends so that I have dinners for my hubby and I ( since he and I work late ( me 7pm him til 10pm some nights) its hard to make meals and I end up getting him take out. I am pretty good about making me a breakfast, lunch and dinner the night before but they are pretty boring meals. My hubby, don't know if any of you run into this problem as well, hates " healthy food" so I have to make him a different dinner, or if I don't have time .... Taco Bell!
What are some of your guys "go to" dinner meals? If you batch cook for the week what are some of the dinners that you cook?
