Yes, I want to get my booty lifted. And how to I think I'll manage that? Squats of course! Squats and lunges and other manners of torture! I am also, as I stated yesterday, working on dialing in my nutrition and making sure I get my supplements in.
So, this time around I have decided to just edit one long weekly post as opposed to doing a daily, daily post. Now, this doesn't mean I won't post something specific for a day, like a recipe or something, but I want all the progress stuff to be in one area.
So, without further blah, blah, blah (because I can't spell that other word) let's get down to business.
I did take measurements and "before" pics. I will weigh in tomorrow.
May 27 measurements:
natural waist: 34.5 inches
fitness test waist: 38 (36 when I "suck in", because anyone who says they don't do that feels a warm sensation in the area of their undies)
upper thigh (fullest part) 22.5
lower thigh: 17
My eats were decent today. I ended up buying some Terra chips and eating some of them, not perfectly "on plan" and clean. Other than that it was a good day. I never knew just how awesome dates with gorgonzola can be...yummy! We had zucchini and tomatoes with onions as our veggie tonight and chicken legs for protein, I also had a side of potato with butter. I didn't eat any other real meals, some bone broth, beef jerky, bacon, dates and kimchi. One of those days that would be hard to track properly. I find it easier to track when I am at work, so I plan to track tomorrow. I am not sure if I plan to only count MFP or sparkpeople as tracking, or if just keeping a log and writing it down will suffice. We'll see how it goes. I don't particularly care for doing it on the computer, it is sooo tedious.
So, as I mentioned I took before shots. I am not sure why I feel awkward sharing them. They are not as bad as my very first before shots. So, I decided to share. Hopefully we will see some good progress at the end of the month!
So, there ya have it. I have a long way to go to get back to where I as before I got pregnant. :/
these three are self pics I took in February. For some type of comparison.
weight 166.2 pounds, not too terrible. Definitely a good starting point. I didn't take the body fat measurement, but I did one recently at the gym, so I think I'll just use that as my starting point.
31.5% body fat on 5/16 My ultimate goal body fat is 20-24%. I don't know how long that will take, but that isn't the point is it?
I did start tracking today, but got off of it. I need to see how easily I can fill it in.
30/10 intervals (twice, with one minute rest)
Squats with bar (18# bar I think)
Planks x 2
8# DB lunges (30 sec each)
Chest press bar
5 min elliptical interval warm-up
6 min walk interval cool-down
I also rode my bike to work after lunch which took 10 minutes both ways for a total of 20 extra activity minutes. I am about to put some shoes on and take the dog for her walk too.
