Wiegh-In and Measurements

Oops, I did it again......182.4 - EXACTLY. Two weeks ago I had gained 2.5 pounds and then lost it landing me right back at 182.4. Now, this week (due to an unfortunate candy and binging incident) I gained 3 pounds and lost it landing right back here at 182.4.

I have to stop doing this to myself. It is too much work to stay the same (essentially). However, I will take it and be grateful I did not have a net gain. I just hope next week it moves down again.

In other news, I took measurements this morning. I did so because I have not since September 20th and I want to start P90X in the next week or so and I wanted a starting point. I say in the next week or so because it depends on how long it takes me to recover from the mud run. Dude, I was reading the obstacle list last night and it is crazy! The 2 that sound the easiest to most people of all the craziness worry me the most. One is jumping hurdles. I have never done that dry or in running shoes, let alone covered in mud and in hiking boots. The other is crossing 5 wooden logs....that are purposely wobbly. I have bad enough balance stretching my ham string standing up. That, and I am clumsy. I do have to say, I was laughing out loud thinking about me on this course.

Let us pray I come out with no injuries. And some funny pictures to post.

On to measurements:

Neck: 0 change
Chest: - 1.5 inches
Arms: - 0.5 inch
Forearm: - 0.5 inch
Waist: - 2 inches
Hips: - 2.5 inches
Thigh: - 1 inch
Calf: - 0.25 inch
Weight (since 9-20): - 8 pounds

Not too bad. At least the measurements are still going down. Well I am off to drag the dogs around the neighborhood to poop on everyone's lawn. Have a great day. I will post again sometime this weekend about my grand adventure. Hopefully I will not eat my way back up the scale so much.

I can relate on the binge front... the past two days were AWFUL for me... and I am ashamed and frustrated.

Good luck with "doing better"... I am sure you can do it!

I think there is no harm in staying the same. You are doing great at learning how to balance those days of eating a bit too much with the days of total devotion to your eating plan. When I really got that down it was a good day!

And those measurements are amazing - by the way, your post pictures from Tuesday are wonderful!!!

I made my first diet change this week, and I actually gained. Staying the same would've been so much better. Have fun w/the mud.

LMAO I love how you ended the blog, you sound so happy and matter of factly about your dogs pooping in other peoples yard, it cracks me up.

I cannot wait to hear about the mud run! I soooo think its awesome that you are doing that!

Fat Lazy Guy said...

Mud run sounds fun! Awesome, even!

A maintain is always better than a gain, as they say. And if the measurements are going down, then all the better! I still think you're killing it :)

Good luck with P90X as well.

Laura said...
