When I got on the scale yesterday I was dreading writing this post. I have literally worked my bottom off this past week. I’ve been doing two workouts per day (minus rest days) and I’ve been striving to get my 10,000 steps in per day. I only reached it 3 days out of 7, though.
As you can see, I gained this week. Not even a full pound, only .8, but how frustrating after working as hard as I have the past week. I’m sure it’s muscle and water, but UGH! I lost a half inch in my waist, my right thigh and in both arms. I think I lost in my right leg because I’m stronger in that one when doing my kicks on the Combat workouts I do.
The motivation I get from the other bloggers on this challenge is amazing. Kim is my biggest motivator. I want to be just like her! This week I want to try to get as close to her on steps as possible. That’s going to take a huge amount of walking! Sara is my other biggest motivator. Last week she came up with some really good ideas about prepping her snacks and salads for the week. Here are my measurements so far:
|1/6||45.5″||43″||51″||R:13 1/2″ L:14″||R:17 1/2″ L:17 1/2″||R:26″ L:26″||18|
|1/13||44″||43″||50″||R:14″ L:14″||R:17 1/2″ L:17 1/2″||R:26″ L:26″||18|
|1/20||44″||42 1/5″||50″||R:13 1/2″ L:13 1/2″||R:17 1/2″ L:17 1/2″||R:25 1/2″ L:26″||18/16|
Regardless of the measurements I feel good about myself. Whenever I work out in the morning I feel great through the rest of the day. My off days I feel extremely lazy. I can feel a difference in my body. Plus, I was playing basketball on Saturday and my pants kept falling down! The tools I’m using to track my progress are: an Omron pedometer and an Omron HBF-510W Full Body Composition Monitor with Scale. I like that the pedometer links up to an account on Omron Fitness where I can track my goals over the week and also see my friends’ progress.
