  • Notes: 
    • I am losing the running battle – moving the treadmill into the living room has proven to be a problem because it’s so noisy and bothers the kids
    • 2 Weeks left of PiYo!  It’s great – I’ll for sure still do it a few days a week!
    • I am pretty bummed about the weight gain, but let’s be honest – this has been one of the hardest 2 weeks of my life with the death of my friend
    • 2 Weeks before New Years and it’s time to get (more) serious!
    • In better news, I’m down to 21.1% body fat, which is a 1.8% loss in 6 weeks which is HUGE for me
      • To put it in perspective, when I started, I weighed 140 pounds (but was 141.2 the day before, so 140.0 was a touch lower than it should have been) at 22.9% body fat, so 32.06 pounds of my weight was fat.  Today, at 142 and 21.1% body fat, 29.96 pounds of my weight is fat – so I’ve lost fat while gaining muscle, which I think we all know is what you want.  Still hard though.  😉
        • I am down 2.1 pounds of fat, which is good… no GREAT
        • I took the photo yesterday at 142.2 pounds because I was feeling defeated and wanted to see if there was a physical change to see.  I think there is
      • With the weight gain, I will NOT be safely in the 130’s by the end of this challenge

Goals for the Next 8 Weeks:

  • Finish on 12/31/2015 SAFELY in the 130’s (meaning a couple of weeks prior to 12/31 weighing in in the 137-139 range)
  • I’d really, REALLY love to see a body fat percentage in the 21% range again on my handheld body fat monitor
  • I want to see major changes in my physique since I’m so dedicated to PiYo
  • Complete 5+ hours a week of dedicated exercise
  • Run 20-25 15-20 miles a week on average
  • Complete the full PiYo 8 week program
  • Supplement my fitness with at least 2 BOD (bea.chbo.dy on dem.and) workouts a week
  • Stay within daily net calorie goal of 1390 calories at least 5 days a week

Starting Statistics on 11/05/2015

  • Weight:  140 pounds
  • Body Fat %:  22.9% with the handheld (22.2% with calipers, 22.8% with the Tan.ita scale)
  • BMI:  21.9

    1. Thank you! The minute I see a gain, I freak out. It’s ridiculous.

      The holidays are hard…. But damn, the treats are good…. And usually worth it (I choose wisely!).
