So where does the NOT THE BEST IDEA come in? Well it is 10:21 PM and I am still "experiencing" the effects of some dehydration. The fast yesterday included not drinking water either. Today I have had maybe 50 ounces of fluids and 20 of them were in the last 10 minutes. I am horrible, but when I run like this I don't really feel hungry all day and I am already really bad at hydrating. I love the blog-o-sphere challenges, I need to create a personal challenge to drink more.
Speaking of challenges:The Legs Love Lunges Challenge, it is officially over. I am not dressed for cute leg pictures right now, but I am pretty proud of them. They may not look all that much different, but they feel great.
The Summer of Weight Loss Challenge is over.
Current weight 193 (size 14 as of June 26th)
Goal 180 (this is a pretty lofty goal so any loss is great or at least a comfortable fit into a size 10/12).
Weigh in days are Tuesdays-----9/19 181 lbs 1 pound shy of my goal. I am a comfortable 12, actually they are kind of baggy, but not all 10's fit me yet. Is there an 11 out there somewhere?
Bust: Too big, still nursing, nothing I can do about them
Chest: 3----- same
Hips: 42 1/2-----40.5
Midway (my version): 41 big roll below the belly button, 40 right at the belly button and 38 1/2 at the roll above the belly button I am about 8 month post delivery of my perfect baby girl and would love to lose the not so perfect post baby pudge/rolls-----39 big roll below the belly button, 38 right at the belly button and 36.5 at the roll above the belly button
Thighs: 24 each-----23 each
Knees: L 15 3/4 R 16-----15.5 each
Left calf: 15 1/4-----15
Right calf: 15 1/2-----15
Right upper arm: 12"-----11
Left upper arm: 12"-----11
Hard Core is not going as well as I would like. Now that I have slimmed down a couple inches I need to do the muscle work in those areas. I have 27 days to the marathon and a strong core will be a huge boost to my training and race day efforts. Not to mention I can start toning some areas that are still not where I want them to be.
- For running partners
- For a wonderful dinner with my family
- For a fun week ahead
