If you read my previous post/update, you may have noticed that I have gained some weight since the last time I posted measurements. With that said, it’s safe to assume that I have not followed through with p90x3 once again. I’ve come to the conclusion that I am not mentally/physically prepared to be able to complete this challenge. I’ve basically been setting myself up for failure by biting off more than I can handle. Mostly because I don’t want it enough to go through the discomfort and sacrifices. At least that’s how I feel at the moment.
Instead I have decided to come up with my own workout routine that I will be posting later to get in the habit of working out and eating healthier for a better lifestyle. My biggest goal when hitting the gym will be to work harder than the day before whether I’m dealing with cardio or strength training…. One step at a time, right?!
(My current weight is 200.4lbs and my goal is to be 150lbs. My weight goal I am focusing on right now is 180lbs to break it down so it feels more manageable. My goals below are based off of my old measurements from around 2011/2012 that I found in an old workout journal. These goals are more of a starting point than my ideal weight and measurements. I find it hard to make up ideal measurements because I feel like the sizes I’d pick would make me look like a deformed Barbie or something…)
Here are my current measurements along with my (long term) goals:
Body Fat%-36.2% 29%
Chest- 42.5 38in
Navel-43 (44.5in at largest point) 36in
Hips- 46in @ middle of butt/ 42.5in @ waist line 39in/36in
Biceps- 13in Flexed 13.5 ish (14in@largest) 11in/11.5in
Thighs-27.5in at largest 23in
Calves- 16.5in(R) 16in (L) 14.5in
It says in this workout journal that I have pictures on my old computer. If I ever find them I will be sure to post them so we can compare everything. At these measurements, I worked out inconsistently maybe 2x week (mostly elliptical), took stackers daily, and worked +12 hours 7 days a week at a fast paced restaurant that was short staffed. Hopefully when I reach 150lbs I will look even better since I will be weight lifting and taking supplements!
Speaking of supplements, The two meal replacement drinks (Lean shake I believe) I talked about in my last post were decent. Well the natural chocolate one was pretty tasty. I wasn’t a fan of the natural vanilla. Either way, I’m not planning on buying this brand for meal replacement drinks since they’re a little pricey for me.
I plan on posting current pictures, supplements I will be taking, and my workout plan sometime before Monday. Hopefully I didn’t ramble too much as I am running on little sleep and it’s my bed time! Until next time…
