While I don’t consider myself a slave to the scale, it is the only measurement tool I use. I tried for a while to live without the scale, but I just wasn’t in a place to do that yet. I gained a bunch of weight back and just generally felt blah.
But it’s always been scale or no scale…nothing else. I’ve never been consistent about measuring or posting progress pics or anything like that. Stepping on the scale takes two seconds and all that other stuff…well…takes longer.
And I’m lazy.
So there’s that.
But, I’m getting to a point in my life and have made several realizations that NOW IS THE TIME. Shit happens so you better jump in with two feet while you can.
Feel free to make that into a little pinterest thing with a picture of a girl jumping with a beautiful sunset as the backdrop.
I started CrossFit three weeks ago and the scale has been going up as a result. I realize my body is saying “What the WHAAAA…??” so I’m not too concerned about the scale right now. I am also participating in the Clean and Lean Project this month and someone asked if anyone was going to take measurements to track their progress.
Jumping in with two feet in….3…2…1…
Neck – 13″
Upper Arm – 12″
Chest – 34.5″
Waist – 30.75″
Navel – 36″
Hips – 39″
Thigh – 23.5″
Calf – 14.75″
Body Fat % (estimate) – 28.5%
Weight – 159
I’ll do another picture and measurements in a month!
