New 5/30/11

So my month without a gain: failure... by .2 lbs. DOH!

I can't be too angry, I have to admit I "enjoyed" my holiday weekend. I had a few extra "snacks" that I should have laid off of, and I didn't do any exercise (my norm of an hour of soccer on Sunday was cancelled) and all I can say is I'm glad I didn't undo all of my hard work, even though it feels that way.

May 302011
Weight: 152.6lbs (+.2)
Body Fat: 29% (-1)
Bust: 36" (0)
Waist: 29" (+.25)
Hips: 39.5" (+.5)
Bicep: 11.25" (0)
Thigh: 22.5" (0)
Calf: 15" (+.5)

Ugh, seeing the numbers laid out like that really makes me regret my decisions. I was doing so well, and was watching the scale bob around 150 all week until I let loose on Friday. I guess it's just really proof that I need to be ever concious of my decisions and I just can't eat like a "normal" person, or I will see it on my hips... literally.

Seeing as I see a decrease in my body fat and increases everywhere else maybe I can cross my fingers and home that its that time of the month and I am just overall bloated, because .2 lb gain wouldn't explain all of those inches. We will just have to see how next week turns out.

Here is my month in review, it was going pretty darn well until today (well yesterday).

Although I couldn't sustain a month without a gain, I was able to lose more then 5 lbs this month, so that puts me back on track, and blows last April (gain of .8 lbs) out of the water. Can't really explain the gains in hips and calf, but again hoping that is is just TOM catching up to me, although I have never really seen it before. But I don't want to make any excuses, I just need to keep looking forward and trying new things to melt the fat away.

Check out my overall journey from the beginning of this blog:

Unhappy to have to change some of those losses to smaller numbers, seems that I may have gained in the calf and hips, perhaps muscle, perhaps bloat. I can't tell yet, but what I can tell is -19 lbs is pretty spectacular. I am pretty sure that I can look forward to hitting my -20 lbs benchmark this week and I will be super excited for that. I thought I would go ahead and get my hair cut, but I'm sorta thinking I like it longer, so maybe I will just get it colored or styled, or maybe a new outfit.

I will have to decide when I get there.

I have a few big obstacles coming up this month I need to fight with, and I have a few aces in my pocket I want to try and use to keep the numbers moving in the right direction. I will have to explain better in another post but formalities for now.
