4-Month Recap (aka The Good, The Bad & The Good)...

Monday, July 01, 2013

Evidently I haven't posted a blog in awhile... so let me share the "good" first... followed by the "bad"... and now the "good" again...

So the 1st GOOD:

After I completed my weight loss classes at my gym, I was very successful,

So, here were my results on April 1st:

Weight: 4.9 lb. lost

Body fat %: 0.9% lost

Upper arms: 0.5 in. lost

Chest: no change

Waist: 0.5 in. lost

Hips: 0.75 in. lost

Thighs: 0.5 in. lost

Calves: no change

So that made my totals during my 3-month weight loss class as follows:

Weight: 21 lb. lost

Body fat %: 3.4% lost

Total inches: 12.25 in. lost

Now onto the BAD:

Once the class finished, I lost my weekly routine because I had to start varying my work nights again, which meant I wasn't able to go to Zumba & water aerobics every week. I also got a little lax on my eating habits... and the scale & tape measure responded accordingly.

I pretty much let it go the next 2 months, so here is the damage I had done by June 1st:

Weight: 14.5 lb. GAINED

Body fat %: 2.3% GAINED

Upper arms: 0.25in. GAINED

Chest: 0.25in. GAINED

Waist: 1.25in. GAINED

Hips: 1.75 in. GAINED

Thighs: 1.5 in. GAINED

Calves: 0.25in. GAINED

So yeah... definitely not a good couple of months... I almost undid ALL of the good that I accomplished during the weight loss class! But fortunately, I did not let it go for months on end like I typically do...

And now the the up-to-date report... and the final "GOOD":

I used June to buckle back down w/ my nutrition, and was able to produce the following results as of July 1st:

Weight: 10.6 lb. lost

Body fat %: 0.9% lost

Upper arms: no change

Chest: 0.25in. lost

Waist: 0.75 in. lost

Hips: 0.75 in. lost

Thighs: 2in. lost

Calves: 0.25in. lost

So, I've almost gotten back on track... just a couple more pounds to shed (3.9 to be exact), and a couple more inches to lose.

Hopefully it'll all be downhill from here, as I've started to add back in my exercise too... in fact, this past week I actually jogged for the first time since having my hip surgery 2 1/2 yrs ago! Definitely gonna take it slow... but sooooo looking forward to getting back to running!

Until next month...

    If it wasn't for ups and downs, we'd never have met!! Keep up the good work!! Running? Mine said no running or jumping. Is it because you're so much younger or because it was a partial, do you know? :( pouting
