Day 6: Measurements (I couldn't wait until Monday!)

Still going!  I've done pretty well.  I've managed my eating well and worked out daily!  Yesterday I did Level 3 of the 30 Day Shred.  My legs are burning!!!  I went out to eat on Wednesday night and took half my dinner home for lunch the next day!  Here are my measurements this morning!  The purple is my loss this week.

Hips- 45 1/2 (-1/2)
Waist- 37 1/2 (-1)
Arms- 15  (-1/2)
Thighs- 25 3/4 (-1/4)
Weight- 187 (-3lb)

Day 3: Still Kickin'

Today I ate 1700 calories.  I wanted to freak when I saw that the four dinner rolls I ate (I made them homemade! YUM!) came to 442 calories!  Holy cow!  Yesterday I ate 1700 calories.  That must be my norm when I'm eating healthy.  Monday I only ate 1100 calories but I was really trying to be careful since I was coming off a giant holiday binge.  1834 calories is supposedly what I need to eat each day to meet my weight goal of losing 40 lbs by the end of July.

To break it down easier I looked at a goal graph.  I started at 190.  I need to be 180 by Feb 26, 170 by April 22, 160 by June 17 and then 150 by the end of July.  It breaks down to barely over a pound a week, right?  I can do this!

Well... it sounds like my cruise is off.  I shouldn't be surprised since I have a dark cloud that hangs over me, but I'm going to kick butt anyways!  I did the 30 Day Shred again this morning.  My abs are so sore!  Cruise or no, I want to lose 2" by the end of the month!

Three days and still kickin!

So far, so good

It's only been one full day but that one day went well.  I felt hungry a lot, but I'm coming off a holiday binge.  I'm using to track my eating, exercising and weight/measurements to really keep me on track this month. 

Yesterday I ate around 1200 calories.  I burned around 2500 calories.  200 of that 2500 calories was me doing the 30 Day Shred.  The rest is my lifestyle (mostly sitting, some movement).  I weighed in today at 187 which is great at a 3lb loss, but I won't get excited until doing my Week 1 measurements on Monday.

Day 2, here I come!

It's Been FOREVER! And I'm much fatter :(

Ever since I bought my house almost a year ago I've really just not given a crap about eating right or working out.  I haven't wanted to go on dates.  And I haven't been wanting to impress anyone.  I quit my job 8 months ago and just haven't been very active.  My lifestyle has slowed down physically A LOT.  And because of that my weight and fat has gone up... way too much.  I've just been content with not caring about my weight.

I'm going on a cruise in a month (wahoo!) and I would really like to lose 2 inches on my hips and 2 inches on my waist in the 30 days before I go.  I bought 2 beautiful formal dresses for cruise dinners and I will be spending a lot of time in a swimming suit.  This is the heaviest I've been in a very long time and I've got to slim down.  This 2 inches really isn't much, but it will be a start and let me feel a little better for pics on the cruise. 

The plan is to start the 30 Day Shred again since I did well on it last time.  I'm also DONE with carbonation (Cherry Coke & Dr. Pepper) and really just done drinking anything but water.  Desserts are out along with big portions and too many carbs.  Wish me luck!!!
