It's Time to Get Serious Again...
After floundering for the last several weeks, going up and down in weight and with my plan and dragging my feet with the gym I'm ready to give this my all again.
Even if the scale only shows a small gain, I can feel my jeans getting tighter and I can't keep avoiding to take my measurements because I know the numbers will go up (and they did).
The goal here is not to focus on food and my eating plan. That basically remains the same. I'm still doing keto and not cheating. The focus now is back on working out, leaning out and losing inches and body fat,
In order to do this I finally sucked it up and did my measurements again and, yeah, I was right, they did go up, but it is what it is. I also had my body fat percentage done again to have a starting point.
I started my Push/Pull/Legs/Abs A-G workout today with Push Day A and I plan to work out 6 days a week even if some of it is just stretching or yoga. The last time I ran my program (at home) it took about six weeks to get through it so that's my current timeline and I'll be taking my body fat % and measurements again as soon as this full workout is complete.
And while I'd like the scale to move down, that is not my focus right now because there's only so much I can do to control that. My focus is on what I do have control over: what goes in my mouth and how much I work out and looking at the measurements it's obvious that I need to get serious about exercise again!
Here are my starting numbers for this workout routine:
Measurements: Change from 5/3/2018
Waist: 36 inches (+ 1.5 inches)
Hips: 38.5 inches (+ 0.5 inches)
Bust: 39 inches (+ 0.5 inches)
Chest: 34 inches (+ 1 inch)
Right arm: 12.5 inches (+ 0.5 inches)
Left arm: 12.5 inches (+ 0.5 inches)
Right thigh: 24 inches (+ 1.5 inches)
Left thigh: - 23 inches (+ 1.5 inches)
Right calf: 15 inches (+ 0.2 inches)
Left calf: 15 inches (+ 0.2 inches)
Jeans Size: size 6 (-1 size)
So let's do this!
