Back at it! Weighing in!

Tuesday, December 22, 2009

After a few month hiatus from meeting bimonthly with my diet counselor (who is also my previous trainer), I went to see him 2 weeks ago. I had gained 11 lbs since August and my body fat went up 3%! Yuck! I was so disgusted with myself...I have only lost a 1/2 lb of muscle in that time frame, but put on 10.5 lbs of fat! Eeeewww! Time to get back at it and have some accountability. Been working out for the past 2 weeks....was sick for 3 of those days, and snowed in my house from a blizzard for 2 other days...wow...cardio was lacking for almost half those 2 weeks, but I still managed to see a little improvement in my numbers from last week to this week:

12/9/09: 237 lbs.....35.65% body fat.....152.5 lbs/muscle.....84.5 lbs/fat
12/22/09: 238 lbs.....34.62% body fat.....155.6 lbs/muscle.....82.4 lbs/fat

While not super excited about gaining a lb on the scale, I am okay with knowing it is muscle gain. I've never been one to lose weight quickly, rather, I put on muscle and tone up instead...it is strange.

    Thanks Rosie :)

    I went to the gym today and pushed myself so hard that I puked...then swallowed it and kept going for another 30 minutes....LOL...I really want to see the numbers on that scale go down in the next 2 weeks. But darnit, some numbers are definitely dropping the next time I get measured. The guy that weighs me measures different areas with caliper/pincher things...hoping for a big drop in those numbers the next time I go meet with him. On the 5th, he is running a bootcamp 3 nights a week for 4 nights and I signed up for it! May God bless me with that endeavor...it is going to kill me...but it might just be the jump I need to really stop this plateau, so right now, I am killing myself at the gym so that when bootcamp starts it wont be such a shock to my body and I might actually be able to finish each class without looking like too much of an arse...LOL

    Don't feel bad, don't quite just get back at it. I know you can do this believe in yourself. emoticon
