The good news ... there has been no increase in the following areas:
- upper waist (the narrowest part)
- even my weight is the same (147ish)
I had felt like my waist was a bit softer lately than it had been, but really had no idea it was that much bigger. When I'm sitting down I can feel that belly spillage. And my waist/belly has always been my weakest point. It already was the body part that needed reducing last time I did measurements.
I could feel it too, especially while running. My pants would slip down a bit, my tops would raise up a bit. My belly would sometimes slip out over the waist band and have that awful jiggle that makes you want to crawl under the closest rock. Very distracting!
So, here it is for the world (or the few people who are kind enough to tolerate my ramblings and read my blog) to see:
I soooooooo do NOT want to post these pictures. But I need to be accountable. I am determined to come back here and post updated AND improved pictures soon!
UGH! Note ... I am NOT pushing it out so that I can have a super change for my update pics. Sadly that is me just standing there completely relaxed. It's all belly baby!
My measurements are an unhealthy combination of 37-35-37.
I'm getting serious about this and that middle number is coming DOWN!
Last night I had a great workout. Did 3 miles easy run on the treadmill (taking that focus off of always having to run faster) and I did a lower body and abs workout.
I think today I'll do some fat burning intervals!
I'm also thinking that I need to be paying more attention to sodium in my diet. Lately I've been feeling a bit like (to quote one of my favourite comedy CDs) a "water retaining sea cow". I don't typically add salt to my food, but have noticed that some of the things I've been eating have been fairly high in sodium. Surely that can't help.
Well, I'm off to make a healthy (low sodium) lunch.
Hope you are having a great day and enjoy your weekend !
(long weekend for Americans)!
