Yesterday was an ok day. I stayed in my calorie range and hit my step goal. I found out my Garmin app keeps track of my streaks, so I don’t need to keep typing it out in every post. And it occurred to me that I can still salvage Thursday if I eat less than 1,615 calories a day for the rest of the week. Now that I’m tracking my calories in terms of daily average calories per week, I can adjust as needed to make sure I still reach my goal, instead of measuring my success or failure based off of one day’s calories’
I also realized that I hadn’t posted any updated stats on Thursday; I only shared my Bod Pod results. That morning I took my measurements and was pleasantly surprised to see some of them moving in the right direction.
8/4/18 8/28/18 9/20/2018 Weight: 131.2 lbs 128.6 lbs. 126.4 lbs Measurements (in inches): Bicep 10.75 10.75 10.75 Chest 35 35 34.5 Waist 31 29.5 29 Hips 37 36 35.75 Thigh 22 22 21.75 Calf 14 13.75 13.75
Granted, the changes in my chest, hips, and thigh measurements are so small they could be errors, but I checked the waist measurement a few times and I definitely dropped half an inch there. Not too shabby for a three-week period.
Final step count: 18,968
It’s Sunday. I’ve got a workout to get done this morning, but that’s about it. Depending on how I’m feeling after I lift, I might go for a short run. I’m feeling motivated today.
And frankly, I need the extra motivation. I’ve been doing pretty awful with my protein goal. No wonder I lost a pound of fat free mass over the past three weeks; I barely hit 50 grams of protein on most of those days. I need to start drinking my morning protein shakes again. More than anything, I need to hit my protein goal today to get me moving in the right direction this upcoming week. Wish me luck!
Current step total: 887
