Life is a complete roller coaster lately. I’m on an “up” in how I feel physically….but I am on a “down” when it comes to the scale.
I have only lost ONE POUND since my last weigh-in….
but I’m 14.75 inches smaller. Like, WHAT!??!
So, I weighed in Monday and MAN was I disappointed – 298. What the heck?!?! I wasn’t busting my ass, I’ll be honest – but I was going to 2 virtual barre n9ne classes a week (and doing mini-workouts in between because I love the format so much!). I was walking everywhere inside work (AC!) and I was watching what I ate. But I was eating dessert….a lot. Oy. Dessert is like my long-lost BFF. I know she’s terrible for me….but I love her! Haha.
I spent a few days wallowing in my 298 and it coincided with my week to teach a class at work. I love teaching, but it’s exhausting! You are ON all the time. I noticed I wasn’t snacking AT ALL during the day (no time!) but I was drinking a lot of water. Hmmm – this is GOOD. Busy work day = no snacks. I was also packing my meals so I could get some work done while I ate, also good! I only had coffee once a day (morning) and I got 7-8 hours sleep every night (I swear, classes wear me out!).
I woke up this morning for virtual barre and decided I should take measurements. It’s been a while, let’s see how I’m doing. Guess what ya’ll? I have lost 14.75 inches since I last measured (5 weeks ago).
WHAT?!?!?! Crazy right?
Neck – 1 inch smaller (WEIRD….like….who has neck fat?! Me apparently!)
Chest – 1.5 inches smaller
Waist – THREE INCHES SMALLER!!!!!!! Holy mackerel!!!
Bicep – 1.75 inches smaller
Hips – 2.5 inches smaller
Thighs – 2 inches smaller (HELLO barre!)
Calf -2 inches smaller
Ankle – 1 inch smaller
How does someone lose 1 pound….and 14.75 inches?! It boggles my mind too.
My clothes are fitting better (the waist of most of my pants is too big, so I keep tugging them up, haha!). But, I still honestly don’t FEEL any smaller. I keep waiting to wake up and feel lighter….maybe soon? 🙂
I’m hoping to get more barre n9ne classes into my life – yay! I’m also going to try keeping my new momentum up. Busy workday = no crap snacks and lots of water and TONS of walking.When I stay busy I find fewer opportunities for mindless eating, which is always a struggle.
Do you guys feel like the high’s and low’s of life reflect in your weight? Do you have trouble focusing on the high’s when you hit a low (like a disappointing weigh-in).I need to work on keeping a balance and being OK when things aren’t perfect (thanks Jess!).
Have a great weekend everyone!
