My Bod Pod results from yesterday were just as bad as I’d expected them to be. From October to now, my body fat percentage has increased from 26.1% to 29.8%, and I’ve gained a little over 6 lbs of fat. The worst part is, more than half that increase happened in the last 6 weeks.
Results from January 25th:
Despite the disappointing numbers above, I felt pretty motivated to get back on track yesterday. I made some healthy food, went to the gym, and tried my best to get all of my steps in early. I was on a roll until right after dinner time – then it all went to shit. I felt tired, the little kid was cranky, and I just felt overwhelmed.
Although I didn’t binge on junk food or anything like that, I did have a drink or two and then went to bed. I did not check my step total for the day before ticking in, and just like that, I ruined my latest streak. I missed my goal by around 3,000 steps.
Fortunately, I’m not discouraged that easily. I’m just going to get right back to it today. My next Bod Pod is scheduled for April 15th. I feel confident I can get a new streak going while working towards getting my body fat percentage moving in the right direction. I just need to make a little effort (or a big one).
