Reboot Entry days 14 and 15.. The End?

Sunday, November 13, 2011

Good morning gang. I thought I'd leave a brief note to let you know how I've finished off my Reboot. Yes, yesterday was day 15, and today I'm having to figure out a different plan.

As for the numbers...

Saturday - 221.4
Sunday - 220.2
Monday - 220.4
Tuesday - 220.8
Wednesday - 220.4
Thursday - 219.8
Friday - 218.6
Saturday - 216.6
Sunday - 217.4

Waist (monthly) 36.5 11/13/2011-----37.75 - 11/6/2011
Hips (monthly) 41 11/13/2011-----41.75 - 11/6/2011
Thigh (monthly) 25.5 11/13/2011-----25.75 - 11/6/2011
Upper Arm (monthly) 13 11/13/2011-----13.25 - 11/6/2011

Saturday made me a bit giddy. That's the lowest I've seen in 23 years. It spurred me to try on some jeans to see how they fit. See, I bought those size 16 jeans several months ago, and then slowly outgrew them - in the WRONG direction. Last weekend, with the 5 lbs released, I tried those jeans on to see how they would fit. They didn't. Oh, they fit, but were uncomfortable and would not be anything that I'd wear out. This weekend, they fit nicely, and I'm going to work hard to make sure that they continue to fit.

The intervening months between buying the 16s and now ended up with my body 'rearranging furniture' (thanks Turtle!). My Eunice (squishy bump o'fat above my bellybutton) got bigger, and whatever tone I had gained was lost. I turned more squishy all over. Proof positive, if I needed it, that ST and working with weights and doing all that core work really DOES pay off. Running for me is about improving my cardio and respiratory system. ST and weights are what will shape and improve my overall appearance. Lesson learned.

I'm going to reintroduce grains, dairy, and proteins slowly to see how my body reacts. I'll probably obsess over the scale this coming week to see how things change, if anything causes a sharp uptick in the number, etc. I may not blog every day, but I'll let you know how things go soon.

So. This morning, I had coffee. It was pretty good. I don't feel super zoomy or anything. After I post this, I'm off to make those waffles. Then I'm going to go through the Spark vegetarian menu to see how it'll work for the next week, supplementing chicken and fish for a few dinners to slowly up my protein intake.

    It's been fun going thru the reboot with you and seeing how things affected your body. I'll be excited to see what path you head down next. I think we need a picture of you in those jeans!

    Congratulations on your pants fitting! I hope that you'll be able to keep wearing them for a long time, until you're too thin.

    Way to go! Now take that momentum and *run* with it! (or lift or push get the picture!)

    BTW, love the "furniture" analogy. I will have to remember that!

    All in all it sounds like this reboot did exactly what you were looking for - congrats!

    And super congrats on the size 16 jeans - bet that felt good!

    Funny thing, I love ST but I hate cardio lol - I do the cardio because I have to - I do the ST because I love it. About the only thing cardio I like these days is the swimming and the treadmill, so I alternate. But put me in the free weight room and I positively GLOW lol...

    Congrats, gal! Glad things are looking up.

    Congrats on the weight loss!! I missed a couple of posts too, so I am not sure why you had to reboot, but it seems to have worked!

    I love my ST, glad you are working those in.

    Oy, I need to do my ST. I know I'd be happier with where my body's put the furniture (heh!) if I did; I'm just lazy.

    But woo hoo to you for surviving Reboot, and for getting into those size 16 jeans!

    Congratulations on the weight loss! Your commitment is inspirational... I beamed with pride when I read about you putting your jeans on this weekend. I know how amazing that feels - wear 'em with pride, girl!

    Congratulation on the weight loss, inches loss and on being less squishy all over. LOL! Thanks for the reminder about ST!

    Good luck with the reintroduction of foods that were not part of the reboot! I hope it goes well without any sharp upticks.

    I'm curious if there are any recipes from the reboot that you will continue to use...any that you really liked and want to share?

    OK, I need to go back many blogs ago and catch up on your whole reboot! I've most definitely missed something major!
