Can I start my post out with an excuse? Does that work? Well, oh well, it is what it is. I've been on on the gimp-foot list for the past 5 weeks. The first 4 were compete no-weight bearing, on a scooter, miserable crap. Now I have four more weeks in a walking boot. I much prefer this boot, but REALLY hate not being able to run or do cardio! So, which brings me to my ..cough...excuse. The past 5 weeks I have done like three workouts. Everyone says "Well, your ankle is fractured." Well, yeah, but the rest of my body ain't! I should have some freakin' killer abs, arms, and back! But nooooo, I lost my motivation and my will power.
I haven't gained any weight, but I can SEE the different in the tightness of my body. Specifically my thighs and stomach. It sucks. Each day I wake up saying "This is IT! This is THE day! This is MY day!" And then I turn off the alarm and grab a donut. Haha, well, not really. The eating has been fair. I'm still staying on that plan, but not counting calories. Just trying to eat and stay clean.
The past three weeks I have participated in the Weigh in Wednesday. I'm not a slave to the scale, but I do have to keep myself on track or I lose it. And I do NOT weight every day. But like I said, I've noticed negative changes in the 5 past five weeks.
Weigh Ins -
Week 1: 149.6
Week 2: 149.6
Week 3: 150.6 - Just got back from a 4 day vacation with zero water drinking. I'm pleased with this 1 pound!
Today as I was scrolling my IG (mneatherlin) I came across Jules' new blog post. I don't know this lady, but I KNOW this lady. I get her. I love seeing her posts. I love seeing her clean eating and her #missionbikiniready posts! She seems about my body type, my motivation level, etc. and she posts some awesome inspirational stuff! Check her out here!
So, I'm following her lead and I just took my measurements. I go on my Playa Del Carmen honeymoon in the middle of June and I am DETERMINED to see some difference by then! I am still in a boot until then, but the excuses are OVER! I will be back at Megan's 5am club TOMORROW in my glorious boot doing everything I can!
Without further hesitation:
Waist - 33"
Hips - 38"
Chest - 38"
Arm - 13"
Thigh - 25"
I don't really have anything to compare these to since I haven't ever really taken any measurements. So, the next measurement day will be June 11. I WILL SEE CHANGE!
