Ok, so I finally caught up with the day. Today I have decided to go ahead & list my measurements. I will track those along with my 20 lbs weight loss. So for every 20 lbs I'll also list my measurements.
Small confession. I still haven't added in exercise yet. I can't find my dance dvd. I may try to look something up on Youtube. Surely there's a workout video on there that I can do for a while. I'm sure that dvd is around here somewhere though, I just have to locate it.
So here goes:
Calves: L - 16 3/4 inches R - 15 3/4
Thighs: L - 28 R - 27
Neck: 16 inches
Hips: 58 (Whoa!!)
Bust: 50 1/2
Biceps: R - 17 3/4 L - 16 3/4
Wow, I can't believe how big those measurements are! And just because I am such a
Biceps: 21''Forearms: 13''
Chest (incl. boobage): 51''
Hips: 61''Thighs: 38''
It's interesting to look at her measurements at around 325 lbs & see how close some of them are to my measurements at two hundred & seventy something lbs. It's amazing how a few inches in height can make all the difference doesn't it? She is 5'10 & I'm a measly 5'5 (almoooost 5'6 but not really). I've never really wished for height until now. Anyhoo, it is what it is.
I got my school schedule today for this semester & found out that I will have the hardest part of my semester at the beginning half (this semester is divided into 2 sets of clinicals) & I'm not sure if that's going to help me or hinder me with my eating. I plan on bringing my lunches to school this semester. Last semester I ate at school a lot, but that wasn't really helping my waist line or my pocketbook (I suddenly turned into an 80 year old woman). This semester I am going to
Last night I went through this cookbook that my neighbor had given me called Simply Delicious by Weight Watcher's.
I found some pretty good appetizer/finger food items that I really think would work well for lunches. And the good thing is, since they're appetizers they make enough servings for me to make ahead & then have for the whole week for lunch. We'll see how they work out. If I like them I'll be sure to post them on here for you guys!! (Don't know who I'm talking to at this point, lol).
So, what have I been eating lately? Well, let me pull out my phone & fire up my trusty app & I'll share what I ate yesterday:
2 Eggs, fried w/half a slice of cheese & some onions (Butter flavored Pam spray)
Coffee w/1 1/2 T of Almond Joy Creamer (I was going for 1 T, but I oversplashed)
1 piece of toast w/1 tsp butter
2 cups of Bear Creek Creamy potato soup (SUPER DELISH!!)
5 black olives
1 cup sauteed yellow squash & onions w/oil & lemon pepper seasoning
1 baked chicken leg quarter
Light Cherry nonfat yogurt
1 bowl of Malt O'Meal Frosted Flakes w/one cup of milk (I buy full fat for my kids, they won't drink any other kind, but I'm going to start back on my 1% to save me some serious calories.)
Total calories yesterday was 1541. My max calorie count is 1800, so I was happy that I was able to eat less & still be satisfied. :) **doing the happy dance**
I drank 8 cups of water & did no exercise, but hey I'm getting there!!
How did everyone else do??
