It's been four weeks since my last fitness measurements, so I had Bill take them for me last night. With his help I've been able to make it to the gym frequently during the week when I would have otherwise sat on the couch vegging out. However, my nutrition has not been anywhere what I had planned. As in, I didn't eat very much all month long due to stress. Yeah, the starvation plan is not something I recommend at all, especially during the holidays.
But, regardless, the pants that I bought just before the first of the month are loose now, so I've dropped another pant size - now officially making me pre-pregnancy size and weight (still not pre-pregnancy shape) at 4 months postpartum. Here's how the stats are measuring up:
Weight = 136 lbs (from 140, starting 143)
Body fat percentage = 26.5% (from 27.5%, starting at 31%)
Neck = 12.25
Chest = 34.5
Arm = 10.5
Waist = 31 (from 32.5)
Hip = 40 (from 41)
Leg = 20.5
Calf = 13.5
I've lost 2.5 lbs of body fat as well as 1.5 lbs of muscle (NOT what I want to do, but that's what happens when you don't eat enough). The next three weeks should be a lot less stressful and I should be able to eat like a normal person again. I think working out is the easy part right now, so working on my nutrition will be my focus so I can gain that lost muscle back, plus some.
