Week Four Completed
I refuse to let this scale beat me! I will not allow it to determine my mood for the rest of the day, week or even minute!
Today I am up 2 pounds. Now, I know that I have been eating right, exercising every day and drinking my water. I've been doing everything right. However, I do feel that PMS-y feeling coming on and since I have been exercising every day, I know that my muscles are storing up water for recovery. Therefore, I am NOT going to worry about these lousy two pounds. There is no way that it is actual fat that I've gained. It's just water and it will go away by my next weigh-in.
That being said. My DD14 and I did my measurements the other day and here are the results:
My Starting Measurements as of May 16th were:
Upper Arms: 14
And My Measurements Now are:
Upper Arms: 13.5
For a total of 3.25" lost.
Not too shabby. Makes me feel better about those pesky 2 lbs. Grrrr...
So, to recap.. my Starting Weight was 195 and I am at 193 now. By my next weigh-in, TOM should be gone or on his way out the door, so I will look forward to then.
Today I am on Day 7 of Level 1 of the 30 Day Shred. I really needed yesterday's resting period. My shoulder feels a little bit better though after doing some more jumping jacks, push ups and arm raises, we shall see..... I'm going to keep on keeping on, though.
