Day 9 Body for Life and Week 1 results
My week one results are okay, but I would have liked to have done better. But hey, I am glad I lost. I am just used to week one losses being larger. Plus its that time of the month for me and I feel so huge and bloated. I drank a ton of water yesterday and it didn’t seem like much came out... so I am hoping I am just retaining and next week will be better.
I have also realized that I have been eating too much. My portions are bigger than they are supposed to be I think. This plan is not cut and dry as far as serving size. A protein serving is the size of your open palm, width of a deck of cards. Um, does this include just your palm or fingers too? These are things a girl who loves food needs to know! Carbohydrate servings are the size of your closed fist. But some info I found said 1 cup for liquid but most serving sizes are 1/2 cup so I dont know. This week I am going with a little less and I will see what happens.
Starting weight: 190.6
Today’s weight: 187.2
Loss: 3.4 lbs
Starting body fat %- 38.6%
Starting BMI: 32.6
Todays BMI: 32.2
The hubs and I did upper body last night. I pushed myself. It felt great. I love working out with the hubs. Even though we are doing our own thing its so nice to have him there.
Today's reason for losing weight:
*being able to walk into a store and pick something off the rack and know it will fit.
Today I am thankful for:
*most of my gift wrapping is done.
