New measurments

Saturday, October 25, 2014

Ok got my measurements done. Everything was as expected. First let me say I have noticed serious improvement in muscle development. My arms legs and chest are starting the show definition. My calfs are looking the best. Even abs are starting to take shape. But and there always is a but, that little tire around my belly doesn't seem to be moving much any more.
The first number is from 4/9/14 and the second from today.

Chest 39.75 39.3
Thigh 20.25 20.4
Calf 13.25 14.2
Hip 35.5 36
Bicep 12 13.1
Waist 37.25 37.5

So the scale is not showing what the tape is. WI's have been dismal but I knew I was developing muscle and the tape confirms that.

PAWSE UP Week 6

Wednesday, October 22, 2014

Well 5 weeks down heading into week 6 already. Things are still going good.RRROOAAAARRR!!! This weeks PAWSE will be:

Plan/ Prepare
will continue planning meals out weekly. On Sundays will continue preparing as much as I can for week. Will relieve a lot of stress and give me some extra time through the week to catch up on a few things

ACT
will use both nutrition and fitness trackers. Need to make sure everything is tracking right. Will keep pushing myself to try to get in an extra workout here and there. Will make adjustments as needed.

WRITE
Starting at 177. Expected a weekly loss of at least 1.5 pounds.Only lost .4 lb this past week. Was really worried about this WI with everything that was going on trying to finish getting ready for my daughters wedding, so I'll gladly take a loss. 10.4 lbs in 5 weeks is pretty darn good. 2/3 of the way goal, but not focused on that but rather beyond that. Last 3 weeks have just been ok. I know I can have another great week so I'll Increase my minutes some and try some higher intensity. Have also started some 5K training. Bought a digital tape and will pick it up tomorrow to see how that looks. Now I'm SSSSOOOOOO ready to go!! Still very motivated!!!!

SET a non scale and Scale goal.
My non scale goal would be to continue eating healthy.
my scale goal is to loose 2 lbs this week. Want to loose 15 to reach my goal and then continue on to a healthy weight

Execute
To execute this plan I will follow our teams workout plus look for those extra minute moments to get the heart rate up. When not on a team exercise will look for something to do to elevate heart rate. See some ST training in the future

I AM A TIGER AND YOU'RE GOING TO HEAR ME RRRRROOOOAARRRR!!!!!!

    10.4 lbs in 5 weeks is REALLY great, and very realistic when it comes to keeping it off. emoticon emoticon

This Tiger has his POUNCE back

Friday, October 17, 2014

The other day we had to do a visualization exercise ( Thanks Dawn). My vision is to get back to 135ish. So as I stand there. It hit me. I had lost my POUNCE.
The first BLC I did I need to loose a lot of weight. And that is exactly what I did. I made a comment to our team that as Tigers we see are prey (goal) we stalk it and thena last we pounce a capture our reward. ButI realize I had lost my pounce.
After the first BLC my focus was I only need to loose like 15 lbs to hit healthy weight. What I was focusing on was the high side though. the low side( my actual goal) isanother 20 pounds away from that. So instead of needing to loose 12 pounds to hit my goal as I was focusing I really need to hit 32 pound to reach my visualization. I was hunting for rabbit and coming up with mice and settling for that. I had quit pouncing because I lost my focus. No more RRROOOAAARRRR!!!!!!!
