I’m crinching over the fact it is time for the embarrassing pics again but here we go…
Not sure if there is any difference on the pictures but I have always “suffered” from the flared out thighs and now I actually feel and see less “flare”, this is something I always been conscious about and it is an awesome felling.
The other thing I did today before my cardio session was to check in on my monthly body composition and when I stepped on the scale I had actually gained 2 pounds since the last time! But as soon as I got the results of my body composition I relaxed instantly as my body fat had decreased from 20.1% to 18.7% and now I am just like an 18-year old because who want’s to be 19 years and 10 months…This is just like a time machine…Wohoo!
…so who cares about the pounds, it’s all about the muscles baby 🙂
No, I was back on the scale yesterday and I am down the to the same weight I was before are gained last week, 56.3kg or 124.2 lbs.
I have decided not to update my weight and measurement every week for now on, as I don’t think I’ll loose any more significant weight. Instead I will update my monthly body composition and I had my body fat measured this past Tuesday.
In January it was at 21.8% and in February 20.1%. I think this will reflect my fitness progress more accurate than what the scale says and when I attempting to use the tape measurement sizing my bottom 😉
I have not eaten anything different this past week except when we went out for our Valentines dinner but I am up in weight half a pound. It’s not an awful lot but it still bothers me even though I know why I feel bloated and craving ever piece of chocolate I see 😉
I have been strict with my diet for the past 4 weeks and the only times I’ve failed is when I have not eaten enough. When this has happened it has given me a bad headache and at times put me in a terrible mood that the kids and Freddie have had to put up with.
Today I am going to be much better than yesterday when it comes to my diet. There is no fun starving yourself as well as the only thing you will end up doing is to cheat yourself. Even if you eat smaller portions you should eat every 3 hours so you body gets the energy it needs and also so it doesn’t start breaking down muscle tissue.
I have started to notice some differences in my body since I started mainly in my face, around my collarbones and the upper ribs.
Since I started I am down 3.3 kg or 7.4 lbs.
Weight: 57.6 kg 127 lbs.
Thigh: 55.5cm, 21.8”
Hip: 95 cm, 37.4”
Waist: 69 cm, 27.1”
Belly: 79 cm, 31.1”
Upper arm: 26cm, 10.2”
Keep in mind I am doing this with a measurement tape and trying to measure the same places every week. I am weighing myself at the warehouse on the same scale every time so that should be accurate.
I’m still 1.65cm and I really just know metrics so please bear with me.
Weight: 59.5 kg or 131.2lb
Thigh: 56cm or 22”
Hip: 96. cm or 37, close to 38”
Waist: 74. cm or 29”
Belly: 81cm or just under32”
Upper arm: 26cm or just over 10”
I am doing my own measurements and it is hard to get the accurate i.e. measure the same place, how tight did I hold the measuring tape last week etc. I’m thinking about going into the gym to measure my body fat but we’ll see, maybe Saturday morning.
