Measurements - 10/8/12

Monday, October 08, 2012

It's been longer than a week, but hey, I'm here right? I had a really good start, but then last week I did NO exercise! Booo! The fall break has be all jacked up. Still stuck to the nutrition portion of the plan, but I could've done better. And by the end of last week I felt those evil thoughts creeping back in. "The goals [on calories and such] is for a body at rest. I'm not resting. I move all day. This one more serving won't hurt." But I only did that twice, I think. And then yesterday I mentally slapped myself. Umm, Hello... Calling Angel... You're being an idiot! Those are the same thoughts that got me off track last time.

Now I didn't stop sparking because I was off track. It was a break. It wasn't until about 8 months later that I got off track. That's always a hard time for me, with Michael's birth and death dates right there within a month. Well, really it started somewhat in February when I had surgery and was laid up for a couple of months and was on a strict "don't do anything" plan. I wasn't even allowed to lift my toddler. I was barely allowed to walk around a store - for two months!

Anyway, I got up this morning and fixed myself a yummy omelet with eggs (I'd rather have the cals of a whole egg than use egg whites) fresh mushrooms, red bell pepper, and turkey onions with bacon on the side. 432 Cals, 35 carbs, 21 fat, and 25 protein - not bad! And that includes my horrible addiction to coffee with sugar. I used to literally drink coffee all day long. I allow myself coffee in the morning and water the rest of the day though.

I've wrote enough I do believe, so here's my measurements.

Neck - 13.5" - 13.5" = 0"

Waist - 39.5" - 39" = -.5"!

Hips - 39.5" - 39.5" = 0"

Calf- 13.4" - 14.5" = +1"

Arm - 12" - 12" = 0"

So I lost 1/2" on my waist, and gained 1" on my calf. The calf measurement is good to me since it's muscle. Most of my workouts so far have been walking so yeah. The waist is a good thing! Obviously. And I'm proud to report that I've lost 2 lbs! I went from 167 to 165! Yay, yay, yay! Love it. So that's it. I had a great breakfast and I WILL work out during nap time dang it.

That's more than enough for now with my long winded self. So until next time, be happy and healthy : )

    Good job, Angel! I love to see the tape move to a little lower number around my waist (and anywhere else!) each month. Great way to restart. Yay for the 2 pounds!
