What a Good Day!

Since Mike and I had dentist appointments today I was able to sleep in an hour. Once I hauled my butt out of bed, I decided to weigh myself and see how things were going. I stepped on the scale and Yeehaw!! The day was off to a great start.

You’ll have to excuse my bruised toenail. It’s kinda nasty looking. Anyway, how does this compare with last month?

  3/25/2011 4/20/2011
Body Fat Weight: 73.0 lbs 69.1 lbs
Body Fat %: 36.2% 35.3%
Body H20: 46.5% 47.1%
Bone Mass: 6.9% 6.9%

I’ll do my measurements either tonight or tomorrow. My father is coming in tomorrow for the weekend! So excited about that!

The dentist checkup came back great. No cavities or anything else to worry about. So, it was off to work in my new SIZE 14 dress!! That’s right, apparently I’ve gone down another size to a 14. I grabbed some jeans this weekend and decided to get a pair of 14s as motivation. Well, when I tried them on they fit! As did both size 14 dresses I bought (at 50% off too!).

Race Swag

After I finished my WOD this morning I headed over to pick up Mike and my race packets. I can’t believe the 1/2 marathon is tomorrow! The butterflies are starting. The race packet had some great swag in it.

My favorite part is the socks. “Suck it up Cupcake!” The LaraBar was way too sweet. It’s been a while since I’ve had any of those in a long time but I didn’t remember them being that sweet. I only took one bite then through the rest away.

I’m looking forward to tomorrow but at the same time I’m quite nervous. Right now my neighbors are shooting and it’s really putting me on edge. I wish I could turn off the cringing it makes me feel, but I just can’t help it. The only good thing is, this is the first time in a long time since they’ve done this. Let’s hope it’s a long time until the next bout as well.

So…here are the before and after pictures for this month.

Date: 2/25/11       3/25/2011
Bust:  41.5              41
Waist: 38                37.5
Hips:  46.5             45
Calf:   18                  18
Thigh: 28                27
Bicep: 14.25         14.25
Neck:  13.5            13.5

Woohoo! I’ve lost 3 1/2 lbs this month. Outstanding! I didn’t see a big difference in the pictures from February to March (the photos above are from December to March) but it’s nice to see some inches lost as well. The fact that it appears my thighs have lost some girth makes me a happy girl! I’ve been waiting for them to budge for the past couple of months.

So Close!!

It’s the official weigh in day! I woke up this morning feeling like I was a little bloated but the scale was still good to me. Drumroll please…

Let’s compare some numbers. Last month I was 209.7 so I ended up with a 7.9lb loss!! That is outstanding, especially considering I wasn’t 100% paleo this month; However, I was much better this month that I was the previous when I lost about 5lbs. Guess I should pay attention to that! I’m only 2lbs away from being below 200. That means I’ll be weighing myself probably every week until I see the magic “1” at the front of my weight. As it is, I’m at my lowest in about 6 years. Can’t ask for much more than that.

Some other numbers:

  2/25/2011 3/25/2011
Body Fat Weight: 78.6 lbs 73.0 lbs
Body Fat %: 37.4% 36.2%
Body H20: 45.6% 46.5%
Bone Mass: 7.0% 6.9%

My bone mass went down some. I need to start including more calcium rich vegetables in my diet. It’s always nice to see the other numbers go down. As you can see, my water percentage was higher so I think I am retaining some water. I can feel it in my fingers. I will try to get my progress pictures up with my measurements tomorrow when I have more time to fiddle with that. I’ve also decided to go do a CrossFit WOD Saturday morning since I have to be in that area to pick up my race packet for Sunday!

Feelin’ Good

Tomorrow is my official weigh in day where I’ll post my numbers as well as progress photos but I was feeling good today and decided I should take a picture of me in my everyday clothes each month as well. Uncharacteristically, I woke up in a good mood today. Of course, I was tired but not as grouchy as I normally am. Mike knows to just let me do my thing in the mornings and tries to stay out of my way the best he can! I just feel like today is going to be full of blessings…and I hope I’m not wrong. We’ll find out in a few hours, won’t we?!

I really like this shirt too. It’s several years old but not well worn. It’s made out of some sort of fabric that shows my belly bulges a little too clearly for me at times! Since I’m down to the smallest I’ve been in a couple of years (not sure how many exactly) I finally feel confident to wear it more often. Of course, belly still makes its appearance when I sit down…but whose doesn’t?! Mike took this picture for me at work. Then he told me to spin…so I did. This was the outcome.

I normally would have deleted this photo but I decided what the hell! Have a great Thursday everyone!
