I’ve been frustrated by the scale. I’m flirting with 215-219lbs. It’s quite annoying. However, I keep trying to remind myself that I’m also focusing on building muscle – but, I’m still disappointed with the scale.
I took a progress pic last week and compared it to just 4 months ago – muscle I am definitely building, there is no question about that. In this pic I’ve lost exactly 11 lbs, but the change in my body composition is ridiculous.
Still, though, I can’t help but to be bummed about the number on the scale. Can I please just see the numbers fall already? Is that too much to ask?
I bought one of those nifty scales that measure body fat, muscle, etc…it has this little handle you hold onto and everything, so it’s a bit more accurate. I realize it’s not the most accurate thing ever, but I think seeing my body fat decrease and muscle mass increase will help me feel better. I’ll eventually go and do the BodPod thing.
I made it through the first two weeks of Jillian’s Body Shred. That was awesome! However, I had to stop Body Shred because realistically I knew that there was no way I was going to be able to do the next workouts – I’m not physically capable yet. So, I went back to Body Revolution on Monday and am giving it 100% (I started with dvds 3 &4)…I’m lifting heavier and modifying less. I feel my muscles growing and that’s kind of amazing. I think I’ll be ready for the gym after this round, though, which is exciting and scary all at the same time. A friend of mine really wants to help train me and that’s sounds like fun, but I’m worried about what he’ll think seeing me workout (which shouldn’t matter at all. He’s a friend, you know? – and I am married LOL) and what others will think about me being in the gym. I know I shouldn’t, but I’m weird like that. I’m going to be selling myself short, though, if I don’t get a gym membership!
Anyway, life’s been pretty good. I’m still kicking ass. Hope you all are finding your happy.
