mid week update

I am not even talking about the scale.  My measurements other than my belly are pretty much the same, so that is a relief.  I did some food experimenting (too early I know, by far, but I just want to figure it out!) and caused my self to blow up again.

But, more important than all of that is that we have noticed my youngest seems to react when I do.  Did some research and the poor thing may have had food allergies for awhile.  I am more concerned in figuring his out since he is already lactose intolerant.  As a family we are going to approach a very simplistic living plan for awhile (once we eat through the food we already have)…meaning, other than almond milk and almond butter we are going to avoid most foods that come in containers.  We are going to be primarily fruits, veggies and meats for a bit to see if it makes a difference in our general health.

3 things I hope happen from this experiment:

1. We find out what food is triggering reactions

2. We are able to have “unhealthy/processed/manmade” foods in moderation

3. We adapt a whole new healthy lifestyle that allows us to make smart food choices without being overboard crazy about it

 

1.25.13

13 For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
15 My frame was not hidden from you
when I was made in the secret place,
when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
16 Your eyes saw my unformed body;
all the days ordained for me were written in your book
before one of them came to be.

Psalm 139: 13-16

weekly update

Here it goes…weight a little more than last week, and honestly with my exercise and calories I am not sure why.  But, it is what it is.  Anyway, here are ALL my stats.  Don’t do this all the time, so it is about time for a big update.

Tape Measurements:

Waist at natural bend (right above belly button) = 23.5

Waist at belly button = 25

Stomach (including love handles) = 28

Thigh at widest = 19.5

Thigh in middle = 18

Biceps = 10

Forearms = 8

Hips = 34

BMI = 20

Body Fat percentages:

Jackson Pollock 7 = 14.2

Jackson Pollock 4 = 14.4

Jackson Pollock 3 = 16

Perillo = 18

Tape Measure = 18

Really want to get back under 20 for BMI

Day 10

After 10 days I realize I need help!  I have no problem working out.  I have a problem controlling my food intake.  I used to be quite disciplined and am failing greatly!  Due to the working out, the damage is slow going, but it is still damage.  I do okay and than have one tiny slip up that leads to a landslide of disastrous dietary choices.

I decided that it is mostly mental.  If I followed my plans that I constantly write out for myself I would be the weight I want to be right now.  So I decided I need to whip my mind into shape along with my body.  I am going to assume with my mistakes in eating that I am now at a BMI of 20.8.  Surprisingly the internet says that 20.85 is the perfect BMI for women, which I wish was true, but then why would the menfolk drool over the tv/moviestars with BMIs of 18 or less.  (Yes, they are all beautiful despite their weight, but I digress).  I will not reveal my weight, just my BMI.

I am not going to weigh myself again until August 7th (2 weeks from today)

My goal is to be at a BMI of 20.3 on August 7th

My goal is to be at a BMI of 20.0 on August 21st

My goal is to be at a BMI of 19.6 on September 4th

My goal is to be at a BMI of 19.1 on September 18th

I believe these are doable and healthy goals.

To get a jumpstart for the next 3 days…Wednesday, Thursday and Friday I will be eating only 1200 calories.  Healthy, but difficult.

After that I am going to strive to stick to a modified P90X diet of 1300-1500 calories a day.

When I reach my goal of 19.6 BMI I am going to reward myself with some sort of ice cream or milkshake treat.  🙂

When I reach my goal of 19.1 BMI I am going to reward myself with an Onion Blossom from Chili’s.

Now I have kicked the accountability up a notch because I have dates and standards to live up to.

Workout today was light…arm and shoulder weight lifting regime.

And I did do the yoga and Linda yesterday.  🙂

6.21.12

12  All things are lawful for me, but not all things are profitable. All things are lawful for me, but I will not be mastered by anything. 13  Food is for the stomach and the stomach is for food, but God will do away with both of them. Yet the body is not for immorality, butfor the Lord, and the Lord is for the body.

1 Corinthians 6:12-13
