My First 100 Days
I’ve been holding at 166 for weeks now.
Mother nature has come and gone again and luckily my chocolate cravings hit just as I received a bag of Godiva Chocolate Truffle Coffee from one friend and a massive box of Godiva biscuits from another for Valentine’s Day. It’s a good thing we women burn an extra 15% of calories during that special week because I was a chocolate eating fool! If you add to that the fact that I have not been exercising then you have some pretty damning information on me.
It’s OK, I’ll admit it – I have not been giving this the attention it deserves.
On the up side, I’ve been out to eat a few times and always ordered foods that were good for me. I had Thai food for the first time on Tuesday. I ordered Rama Chicken which was chicken breast meat on a bed of deep green steamed broccoli topped with a peanut sauce. (Everything is better with peanut butter on it!) It was delicious! Rice was served on the side but I didn’t touch one grain of it. I ate half the chicken and broccoli and had the other half for lunch on Wednesday. Yesterday, I had lunch at Longhorn Steakhouse and ordered the Parmesan Chicken. It came with a side salad and instead of the potato, I had their garden vegetable mix. I ate the salad (left the croutons) and then ate half the chicken and vegetables. I took the rest of it home for a delicious dinner (which I forgot to eat at a normal time – it was about 8pm when I finally ate). Bad Lisa.
Beginning Monday, my ex husband will be out of town for a couple months so I’ll be settling into a routine with the kids at their house. I’m bringing my bike/desk, kettlebell and P90X DVDs and I’m going to use ALL of them!
Here’s what my measurements are looking like these days:
Weight: 166 (lost 5lbs since December even though my workouts have been rare)
Waist: 31.5 (A loss of 1.5 inches since December.)
Hips: 40 (One less inch since December.)
Bust: 39 (I don’t mind not losing there!)
I’ve also lost a half inch from each thigh and dropped 2% bodyfat since December.
I accept the fact that there will always be ups and downs with plateaus in between. This is a long term lifestyle I’m working on and the changes won’t happen overnight. With that in mind, the ticker on my computer is reminding me that I only have 265 days left until the Lackland Classic.
Wow! It’s been 100 days. Let’s take a look at my first 100 days:
I’ve lost 10 pounds, 8.5 inches and 3% bodyfat.
Another 200 days with progress like that and I’ll be doing alright – not “step-on-stage” alright, but pretty darned good.
I need to kick this up a notch and cut a lot more fat. Is anyone still out there? I could use a kick in the butt once in a while so feel free to leave a comment or email me at Lisa@saxtreme.com if you don’t see any blogs from me.
Please don’t let me slack off?!
