Week 29 Weigh-In

This morning I weighed 293 lbs. This is down 1 lb. from last week giving me a total weight loss of 87 lbs. I have 30.9%(-0.7) body fat giving me 90.5(-2.4) lbs. of fat and 202.5(+1.4) lbs. of lean mass. My waist measured 53.5(-0.5) inches.

I am happy with this weigh in. It would have been nice to lose more than a pound, but it looks like my body is busy reconfiguring itself. Losing an inch in the waist in 2 weeks is pretty nice.

Actually, it turned out better than I thought. My body and mind rebelled a bit last week. I think I was over-exercising. I seemed more tired and sluggish than usual, I wasn't as determined to get my exercising in, I was cranky, and I didn't care as much about eating healthy. Don't get me wrong. I exercised a fair amount and kept up with my running program. I didn't make fettuccine alfredo and pecan pie. I was just off my game if you know what I mean. Anyhow, a few of the books I've read said that they are signs of overdoing it.

I haven't run or ridden my bike since Friday, so I hope it's out of my system. So guess what? It's raining!!! It's barely rained all summer where I live. But I take a week off and it begins with a steady downpour which has no signs of letting up. Grrr... There goes my morning run. No chance to scope out the bike riding paths around here either (I took the week off and brought my family down to my dad's house).

Oh well, I guess that leaves me plenty of time to work on dad's house, lol.

Living Fit Is My #1 Job!

Bummer about the rain. Although I think working on a house can burn lots of calories. My husband has tiling floors, and he's complains of feeling sore with all the squatting he's been doing.

Congrats on your loss. Good for you for staying on track with all those busy kids running around you! Take care.

I can't wait for some rain. I can and do get plenty of exercise inside, so that's not really an issue for me. And working on a house is definitely exercise! As long as the kids don't drive you nuts in the process...

Other way round here- it's rained all summer and we've only had good weather this week
