Well this class thing is a first for me, haven't been in school since 2003! We were "encouraged" at my job to take a class, well one class turned into two... Kinda hoping that might be it or at least I'd have a nice incentive or something.

Thank you, I knew it would be an adjustment and a time consumer, but I've completed two weeks of my new "workout" life!

Yesterday when I was at the fitness center I weighed in for this thing they did over the holidays, called project zero. People had to weigh in in November and then again in January. The goal is to have maintained or lost over the holidays. Well since my November weight I lost over 15 lbs!!!! Seeing it like that I was like wow, all this hard work really is paying off and I can reach my goals! So anyways, since I was a "loser" I'll be entered into a drawing at the end of the month!

Kinda dissapointed with those measurements... Only a 2 in, difference from last month and none at all in my thighs? C'mon I've got some thunder thighs here.... Plus there was a pretty good pound difference and my body fat % on the scale went down alot. Who know, usually doing measurements is encouraging, not so much this month. Figured with having been working out for 2 weeks, maybe that would help, but maybe it's kinda done the opposite.

Guess it explains why all those darn size 14 jeans are so ellusive!

Don't let it get you down. You are doing great. Give it another month and maybe you will see some difference. It took awhile to see a difference from working out if I remember right from last year.

You are doing fantastic! Yeah, we'd all love to see huge gigantic differences in every gauge we use to measure our progress.! Honestly though, I don't think you want to see huge differences quickly... it'll just leave you flabby and jiggly.. slow and easy IMO. I understand completely though, dont get me wrong! I just know that you're doing great things and all of the "little things" will add up to HUGE ones, hang in there!!

Think I had a good UD, Rotisserie chicken is always hard for me to log... I feel like if anything I over guessed my cals. I would love to see something in the 189's or 190's after tomorrow's DD.

I've had a great day and REALLY, REALLY want a new low tomorrow, I mean I've really been working hard enough for it! I need to get to sleep at a decent time though. I've probably just been averaging a little less than 6 hrs a night, these last few days. I'm reading a good book and it seems like the only time I find to read is when I go to bed, so.... Soon as I finish it, I'm not reading anymore books for a bit!

Well I got my new low, but honestly I think it was only because I got to sleep in, since school was cancelled due to the weather...

I'm reading Swan Song, it's pretty good!

Good up day today! I'll be back to working out tomorrow! I have a meeting Tuesday night, so I'm going to have to switch my fitness bootcamp class for the cardio boot camp on Thursday...

Sun 1/27

calories: 2016
fat: 141g - 62.6%
protein: 145g - 28.6%
carbs: 45g, 21 from fiber, 24 net carbs - 8.8%
other - 0%

My net calories were -264.


Hopefully my bounce up tomorrow won't be too bad and I'll be able to see those 180's again on Tuesday. I have to switch back to weighing in at 5:45am again, instead of whenever I crawl out of bed on the weekend.
