Day Eight

So I guess I took my reward for doing seven straight days by taking a day off yesterday. Never again. Today was much harder than it should’ve been, and I can only blame the day off. 😦

My weigh-in yesterday was 146.9. So up again. I’m trying to think of this as me just getting into shape and not worrying about my weight. I did lose half an inch on my waist since Thursday. So something must be working. Now then, here’s to 21 more days of no cheating. If I feel this shitty today, think how I’ll feel if I skip tomorrow!

Weigh-in #1

Not good. I’m trying not to be discouraged, but I’ve gained .1 lb. I’ll see what Sunday’s results are, but I may want to switch to a weekly weigh-in instead of bi-weekly.

Day One

Sunday Weigh-in #1

Sunday Weigh-in #1

Weight: 146.2 lb
Body fat: 46.5 lb
Body fat %: 31.8%
Bone mass: 6.5%
Water %: 49.8%
BMI: 26.9

Day one was supposed to be a week ago, but I sorta tried to start and failed miserably. I got through the strength portion and had nothing left for the cardio, and that was just on the first circuit. So I gave up and decided I would go get some lighter weights and start this right.

So I did the whole thing today and it wasn’t impossible by any means. It was HARD, don’t get me wrong, but at no point did I feel the need to stop. I think switching from the 5 lb dumbbells to 2 lb was a good idea for the squats in the first strength circuit. But I should probably have them handy for the rest of the workout, because while the 2 lbers felt just right for the squats, most of the rest of the strength exercises I could have used heavier weights. 

I completely suck at pushups. I keep my butt way up in the air, and I know I need to work on that, but I think I’ll work up to that, since it’s just about impossible for me otherwise.

Overall, I’m feeling really good about day one, and can’t wait for day two.
