FFA Friday - September 9

It's weigh-in time! Here's this week's scale photo:

Yup - I'm up a pound. I think this has a LOT to do with the fact that last night, while dealing with yet ANOTHER bout of insomnia I was ravenously hungry for whatever reason. Between midnight and 4 am I may have consumed an ice cream cone (rocky road!), a package of Reese's Dark Chocolate peanut butter cups, and TWO cheese sandwiches. Granted, the sandwiches were on homemade whole wheat bread so they weren't that big, but still. That's a lot of calories. I ate all my calories yesterday too, including the ones I got for exercising. I usually don't eat those. I don't know what's up, except maybe pms? TMI?

Yesterday was my last day of boot camp. I almost didn't go because I had slept less than two hours and my sinuses have been bothering me. I missed Tuesday too because of not sleeping. I didn't fall asleep that day until about eight in the morning and class is at nine. That's right; I've watched the sun rise (sorta - I guess I saw the sky lighten is more accurate) the past three days in a row. It blows.

In the end though, I got out of bed and hauled my butt there. I'm really glad now that I did of course. I did a pretty good job with the workout in spite of my lack of rest/sinus issues and because it was my last day, I had my measurements taken. It was kind of wild.

Before: ............................ After:...................... Difference:
Height - 5'4"......................Same.....................None. (I wish I was taller!)
Weight - 196lbs..................190...........................6lbs
BMI - 33.6..........................32.6.........................A whole point!!!
Right bicep - 13.5"...............12.75"..................... .75"
Right thigh - 26.75"............. 25.5"...................... 1.25"
Waist - 42"......................... 39.5 "..................... 2.5"
Chest - 43.5"...................... 40.75"................... 2.75"
Hips - 46.5"........................ 46"......................... .5"

(sorry about the wonky formatting. I couldn't figure out the best way to format this.)
That means that in four weeks I've lost a total of 7.75 inches from my body. My trainer said I could technically double the losses from my arms and legs since I have two of each, which would bring it to 11.75 inches lost from my body. WHOA.

I wish that this wasn't my last week. I'm pretty bummed that we can't afford the $275 a month it costs, but that's a big chunk of money out of our budget when we have hospital bills to pay! I did find a Bootcamp app for my phone though that is made by the same people who made the Couch to 5K app that I use. It's only a few of bucks so I'm going to do that and try to stick with exercising at least twice a week. I know it's not a lot, but look what it did so far! I missed a day this week and last week too.

I'm trying out My Fitness Pal in the next week for food tracking. I've found a couple of other bloggers that use that app so I'll have "friends" on there. No one is using Lose It! apparently! I couldn't find one person on Facebook, Twitter, or my email contacts when I did the friend search. Unfortunately, MFP doesn't have a friend search, but the two I have on there right now is two more than I had on Lose It! If you want to try it, or are already on there, you can add me - http://www.myfitnesspal.com/splendidmissm

It has this cool feature where you can scan the barcode on foods to get the nutrition information using your iPhone. I can't use that feature YET because I have an ancient 3G one, but it will be cool when I get to finally upgrade to a new one. I also like that it has you track your water, which Lose It! didn't do and has a wall so I can see what people I know on there are up to.

SO! If you are using My Fitness Pal, hit me up and we can totally say Farewell to our Fat Asses together! :)

Well done on the loss so far, keep it up, and hope the apps work :o) As it's getting into autumn and getting cooler, can you maybe do some walking round the neighbourhood or local park? It's free, and it burns calories :o)
