Starting Stats

The last time I took stats was back in January, so the numbers are a little weird. I didn’t measure last Monday morning when Juice and I started our IP journey again, so I’m just using the old numbers. The weight though, that’s starting weight from last Monday to today (forgot to weigh in yesterday. Oops. Purple marks the low numbers, from here on in the right column should be purple across the board.

 

Stats:

Calves: 18.0″ from 17.1″
Thigh: 28.5″ from 27.2″
Hips: 47.0″ from 46.2″
Waist: 50.0″ from 46.0″
Chest: 42.0″ from 39.5″
Bicep: 17.5″ from 16.5″
Shoulders: 50.5″ from 48.1”
Neck: 15.75″ from 15.3”
Weight: 239.9 from 246.2

Yay’s and Meh’s:

Yay’s: Back at it with renewed hope, vim and vigor.

Meh’s: Cheated this weekend. However, since I really don’t want to report a cheat to Juice, I’m unlikely to do so again.

Goals:
  1. Do not go in a grocery store more than twice a week. ~ Yep!
  2. Follow IP ~ Nope, cheated
  3. Pack lunch the night before, so it’s not a mad dash in the morning. ~ Nope
  4. Get the “common areas” of the house dinner party clean” ~ No.
  5. Get all the laundry done. ~ Nope

I’m not even kidding. I crawl in bed, think “I should blog” and then fall right to sleep.

pft.

Way to go, me.

Anyway, I’ve been right back to my old tricks. Follow IP all week then blow it on the weekend. I have been getting better though, at least it’s just been Saturday night and Sunday rather than both days.

I also haven’t been logging my foods. I know, know, if I just blogged and logged everyday I would stop cheating.

So, that’s my new goal. Blog and log. Everyday.

Once I do it for 30 days straight, I get to get a small tattoo, or two. Also, about that time, I should be really close to getting the next segment on my nightshade tattoo.

Thanks for listening to me bitch guys. And for putting up with my yo-yo-ing and repeating the same damn habits and complaining about the same results….

Y’all rock. Seriously.

September through October I really didn’t stick to IP. I mean, I kinda did, but I had WAY too many cheat days.

So, after being back from my trip I’m starting over.

I’m going to blog everyday. And, more importantly, log my food everyday.

You can find me on http://www.myfitnesspal.com, username HeartlessHarlot, if you’d like to see my food log. And, I really encourage you to take a look. I welcome any suggestions you may have. Please just understand that with Ideal Protein I may not be able to follow your advice if it doesn’t follow IP protocol.

As for blogging, I’ve scheduled a month’s worth of posts already and will go through 6 months over the next week or so. If I don’t actually edit the scheduled posts then it will post at midnight automaticlly with this as the body: THIS POST IS BAD. AND I SHOULD FEEL BAD!!.

 

Here are my Day One Stats:

IP SW: 235
CW: 229
GW: Healthy looking, maybe, 150ish I have a huge bone structure. Shoulders are broader than my 6′ 200lb, built, hubby’s

Measurements:
Calf: 17.5″
Thigh: 26.7″
Hips: 45.3″
Waist: 45.1″
Chest: 39.7″
Neck 14.9″
Biceps: 16.9″
Shoulder: 49.4″

I do have to say. This is the first time in a long time that my waist has been smaller than my hips. Even though it’s just a fraction of an inch, I’ll take it!

Again, I really love comments. Even if they don’t make sense. So, COMENT Y’ALL! I really am a bit of an attention whore!

Stats:
  • Calves: 17.7″ from 17.1″
  • Thigh: 27.7″ from 27.6″
  • Hips: 46.5″ from 46.1″
  • Waist: 47.0″ from 45.0″
  • Chest: 39.3″ from 39.5″
  • Bicep: 16.6″ from 16.1″
  • Shoulders: 49.5″ from 48.5”
  • Neck: 16.1″ from 15.4”
  • Weight: 234.0 from 233.6

Yay’s: TMI ALERT!!! It was that time of the month. So, I tend to bloat up and retain water. I’m very seriously considering not weighing in or posting a stats that week out of every month.

Meh’s: Still not following my new 1200 calorie plan. Did no working out. At all.

Goals:
  • At least 75% of the time I spend watching TV will be spent on the treadmill. ~ Did NOTHING!
  • Do not go in a grocery store more than once a week. Even then, if it’s not on the list, I don’t buy it. ~ No.
  • Work on De-Hoarding our house, get rid of extra clothes, get organized. ~ A forever work in progress.
  • Get up every weekday morning and exercise. ~ Stopped doing this. Will start again this week.
  • Get house “Dinner Party” clean. ~ I get it there, it’s keeping it there that’s the problem.
  • Get a bunch of “Grab and Go” healthy food put together. ~ No.
  • Pack lunch the night before, so it’s not a mad dash in the morning. ~ Nope.
  • Even out my calorie intake. ~ No.
  • Burn 600 calories a day. ~ No.
To be honest, I haven’t been working towards my goals and not really anything. I’ve also hit this block. I can’t seem to break 230. I had hoped to break it last weekend, but did not. I’d like to blame it on TOM, but, well, see my last post.
I’d like to say I’ll break it this week. But, to do that I’ll have to break my weigh once a week rule since we’re heading out of town and I won’t be weighing in at TOPS.
Although, I’ve kind of been toying with the idea of buying a good bathroom scale and weighing everyday. I’m not doing it to compare my weight day to day, but day to same day the previous week. Also, I’d like to keep track everyday in a calendar along with other info, like how much I slept the night before as well as the quality of sleep. And, I’d like to compare how my weigh changes to how I ate and how much water I drank the day before. I just figure it’d be interesting to see how it all affects my weight form day to day and week to week.
Later y’all.

Well, I’m back and on track…ish.

I am pleased to say that I did lose a few pounds between this weigh in and the last. All in all, since my last Stats update on 4/4/12 (really, people. Really?! THIS IS WHY I NEED COMMENTS!!! I SLACK OFF OTHERWISE!!!) I’ve yo-yo’d a bit, but lost a bit….so…..win?

I’ve also set up a goal to lose 1.5 pounds a week. If I lose 1.5 pounds a week then I will be exactly where I want to be this time next year. 1.5 pounds a week. That’s not much. Here’s to hoping.

A quick weigh in log, ya’ know, since I didn’t actually post anything:

  • 04/07/12 235.4
  • 04/21/12 237.8
  • 05/05/12 234.2
  • 05/19/12 235.6

And, now for the real stats update.

Stats:
  • Calves: 17.1″ from 18.0″
  • Thigh: 27.6″ from 27.8″
  • Hips: 46.1″ from 47.2″
  • Waist: 45.0″ from 45.4″
  • Chest: 39.5″ from 39.5″
  • Bicep: 16.1″ from 16.4″
  • Shoulders: 48.5″ from 50.7”
  • Neck: 15.4″ from 15.9”
  • Weight: 233.6 from 235.6

Yay’s: I lost. I also had a major upheaval in my emotional standing. But, I’m powering through it and haven’t let it run my life.

Meh’s: Still not following my new 1200 calorie plan. Did no working out. At all.

Goals:
  • At least 75% of the time I spend watching TV will be spent on the treadmill. ~ Did NOTHING!
  • Do not go in a grocery store more than once a week. Even then, if it’s not on the list, I don’t buy it. ~ No.
  • Work on De-Hoarding our house, get rid of extra clothes, get organized. ~ A forever work in progress.
  • Get up every weekday morning and exercise. ~ Stopped doing this. Will start again this week.
  • Get house “Dinner Party” clean. ~ I get it there, it’s keeping it there that’s the problem.
  • Get a bunch of “Grab and Go” healthy food put together. ~ No.
  • Pack lunch the night before, so it’s not a mad dash in the morning. ~ Nope.
  • Even out my calorie intake. ~ No.
  • Burn 600 calories a day. ~ No.
Update:

Over all this week was better with the new goals. But, I did have a few too many write off days and went over on my calorie goals, well, here see for yourself:

20120402-113052.jpg

So, I figured it would take two weeks to get with this new calorie goal, so this week should be dead on. Oh, and Sunday up there. It was my nephew’s birthday party, so I ate pizza and a bit of cake, plus the french toast I made for breakfast….it really adds up, especially when I was just plain lazy and didn’t exercise.

 

I mean to post this in last week’s stats, but for some reason it didn’t take. It just left an odd little blurb about me starting something new, then, nothing. So, take two.

Also, I started this:

Pounds Found (pounds I’m still packin’)

Pounds Lost

Where they live.

When I was looking at different weight loss / healthy living blogs I cam across someone who was doing this. You buy two glass containers, whatever you want to decorate them, and some of those floral marbles. You drop a marble for every pound you have to lose in the Pounds Found/Left canister. When you lose a pound, you move a marble over to the pounds lost jar.

Stats:
  • Calves: 18″ from 18.4″
  • Thigh: 27.8″ from 27.2″
  • Hips: 47.2″ from 46.8″
  • Waist: 45.4″ from 46.5″
  • Chest: 39.5″ from 39.3″
  • Bicep: 16.4″ from 16.5″
  • Shoulders: 50.7″ from 50.9”
  • Neck: 15.9″ from 15.5”
  • Weight: —– from 235.4

Yay’s: I lost a bit in inches and got back on track with my new goals.

Meh’s: Not a lot of loss. Had too many write off days. Getting discouraged with my slow/stalling weight loss..

Goals:
  • At least 75% of the time I spend watching TV will be spent on the treadmill. ~ Kind of replaced the treadmill with aerobics. Need to get some balance there.
  • Do not go in a grocery store more than once a week. Even then, if it’s not on the list, I don’t buy it. ~ No, must get better on this one.
  • Work on De-Hoarding our house, get rid of extra clothes, get organized. ~ A forever work in progress.
  • Get up every weekday morning and exercise. ~ Stopped doing this. Will start again this week.
  • Get house “Dinner Party” clean. ~ I get it there, it’s keeping it there that’s the problem.
  • Get a bunch of “Grab and Go” healthy food put together. ~ Not really.
  • Pack lunch the night before, so it’s not a mad dash in the morning. ~ New.
  • Even out my calorie intake. ~ New.
  • Burn 600 calories a day. ~ New.
Progress:

My weight.

So, no change since I didn’t weigh in last week. I’ll weigh in this week.

Net Calories Consumed

Here is the calories I consumed in total. I have to get that line a bit more even. I’ve gotten kind of sporadic. It’s a new goal for this week.

Calories Burned

Here’s the calories I burned working out. Totally sporadic, added a number burned each day as a new goal.

So, here’s the this weeks stats? I did ok with em’. I bought a new digital tape measure so the numbers I’m posting today are a lot more accurate than using the sewing tape measure. So, much like when I started weighing in at TOPS on a properly calibrated scale, these numbers here an there are a litte higher, and, well, correct. Also, I’m going to post everything the new tape measure records, so there’ll be some new body bit on here.

New baseline—–GO!
