Here are my measurements:
BF% by impedance: 29% (woot! down a point already, go hydration)
BF% by measurement: You have 27.6% body fat.
You have 43.6 Pounds of fat and 114.4 Pounds of lean (muscle, bone, body water)
All measurements in inches
calf: 14 1/8
lower thigh: 17
upper thigh: 22
hips: 40 (sigh)
natural waist (NW) -34.5 AF measurement- 37 (eek!) AF measurement sucking it in- 34.5
wrist: 6 1/8
upper arm: relaxed- 11 contracted- 11.25
So, there it is. The starting over point. I really feel like the last few months have had a negative impact on my health. I need to keep that in mind if I am injured again and find a way to maintain my muscle composition. Going backwards on all those things has been quite an eyeopener. I do have to say though that I took the measurements at night. I may redo the waist and chest measurements because of all the water and stuff in my belly right now. They are probably more accurate in the morning.
Laundry- Got the girls laundry in the wash. I couldn't remember which day it was for what was supposed to be accomplished, but as long as one was done it isn't a complete failure if I did the wrong load.
Fitness- Did 10 minutes of running without stopping, then about 12 minutes of walking. I finished that portion with two 200 meter sprints. I did a total of 40 counter level push-ups, with the closer grip. Wow, those are more difficult! I can do it though, I know I can.
Nutrition- I didn't log on the food tracker today, but I will tomorrow. I think that is helpful, especially for anyone wondering what exactly I do eat.
veggies/fruit: celery, cucumber, red bell pepper, apple, berries
off plan- 1 square dark chocolate, 3 chocolate covered coffee beans (<10% off)
water 90+ ounces
Day 1 seems like a success to me. I could have had a bite of a steak finger (grains) or a piece of a candy cane (just not good), but I didn't I said, "no". I could have skipped the sprints. I made a lot of choices today, and all of them were good. Oh, yeah and free pizza. I could have had free pizza, but I just the topping today. Oh, yeah baby. The power of the 30DC!
Let's see what tomorrow brings!
Little personal things not specific to the challenge:
in bed by 11 on work nights
drink 80+ oz of water
make lunches night before
I think that is enough for one night. More 'deep thoughts' to come as the 30DC continues.
