No gym yesterday. My son works 3rd shift and Monday’s are rough for him. He’s transitioning from 1st shift all weekend (awake with his son) back to 3rd Sunday night for work. So Monday’s he’s super tired and I understand. I will have to make sure I plan a home workout on Monday’s.
My oldest son called me this morning asking for help to figure out why he was not losing weight. The first thing I ask/told him was he needs to be tracking his food. Is he eating enough? is he eating too much? With out tracking you don’t know that answer to that. And with his new desk job, he probably needs to adjust how much he eats compared to what he used to eat. And then as my morning went on after that conversation it started creeping into my brain – I’m not tracking. Not a damn thing. And that is probably why the 21 Day Fix was working for me. It kept my calories in a tight range between 1200 and 1500 with daily exercise. I have been exercising – not daily – but I have NO idea how many calories I was eating. And it really does not matter if you eat low carb, high carb, or low fat – it still comes down to calories in and calories out for weight loss. I can maintain my weight on low carb without calorie counting – but seems I can’t lose. So today I start tracking my calories. And I know that I personally starve if I heat a high carb diet, So I will keep them lower.
I took a few pictures to make some level of progress. Just because the scale is not moving does not mean I am not progressing. It’s just not the progress I WANT to see 🙂
Last pic is a close up of my ab area….I have to go find one that is similar from a point in the past LOL I know it has changed a lot despite the scale being stuck. Because my scar tissue it breaking up!!!
You can also see my various random bruises LOL in the side shots.
OH And my massage table!!!
UPDATE: January 23rd 2016 – 133 pounds – I think I actually weigh more than that today 🙂
