So it's been an interesting week, that's for sure. I was able to stay within 200 calories of 1400 Calories a day for eating. I was able to eat right 6 times this week, in fact I ate right all 7 days on a caloric stand point, but I wouldn't say it was a perfect six days. A Big Mac Meal got in there as did a donut and pumpkin cupcake with icing. So not horrible, but not excellent either. The teacher in me gives me a B-, I have a lot of stuff to tighten up if I want to be successful in the long run.
Week two's short term goal is to do cardio 5X a week for a minimum of 30 minutes a day, 3 toning exercises a week for 15 minutes, and to eat right 6 days a week in order to lose 1-2 pounds.
Now let's see how I did in the weight and measurement category.
Beginning measurements: Week One Measurements
Weight 1XX (no I am not saying that number :P) Weight: 1XX -1
Neck: 13.5 inches Neck: 13.5 no change
Shoulders: 42 inches Shoulders 41.5 -0.5
Bust: 43 inches Bust 42 -1
Chest (under armpits and across) : 36 inches Chest: 36 no change
Thigh: 25 inches Thigh: 24.5 -0.5
Calf: 15 inches Calf: 15 no change
bicep: 13 inches bicep: 13 no change
Hips: 45 inches hips: 44 -1
Waist 1 (smallest part of waist): 35 inches waist 1: 34 -1
Waist 2 (over belly button): 39 inches waist 2: 37.5 -1.5
Well I have lost a total of 5.5 inches in the first week, that's very encouraging!!! And I lost a pound which means I am on track to be losing 6-10 pounds in the next 6 weeks.
Through last year when I was losing weight, I didn't really lose a lot of inches in my neck or chest area those areas pretty much stayed the same so I am not suprised to see no movement there. I also didn't see much more than an inch shift in my calf or bicep so those aren't surprising. What I find the most encouraging is the loss of inches in those areas that are so problematic for me, my hips and waist!! I always identify those areas as my problem areas with my thighs, but hopefully this will start dropping and I can begin to feel like I have no problem areas!!
Bring on week 2!!!!!
