So I’m doing a horrible job checking in. But not a whole lot has been noteworthy anyway..
For the past few days I have been doing very general exercises with a focus on burning fat and building muscle. This includes: jump roping, elliptical trainer, running, bench press, curls, push ups, etc. I have been doing these (mostly) every day.
As for diet, I have not been eating particularly healthy, just controlling the portions I eat. I have been using myfitnesspal on my iPhone to keep track of how many calories I am consuming and burning. It automatically takes into account how many calories per day one can consume in order to lose a particular amount of weight per week. I have it set on the maximum (2) which allows me to eat 1200 calories before exercise.
I have actually made some progress in the last 4 days with my weight loss, going from 166.8 on 1/11 to 164.8 today (1/15). That is a loss of 2 lbs in 4 days, not too shabby. We will see if it fluctuates or not.
As for inches in the same amount of time, I appear to have only lost a quarter of an inch around my navel, from 36.5 down to 36.25. I am no very good at selecting the exact same spot and keeping the measuring tape level so there is no telling how accurate it is. Oh well, I’ll keep doing it anyway!
