Current Pictures and Stats (Good Heavens, why do I do this?!?)

I’m sitting here asking myself why the heck am I doing this?!? But then I remind myself that I’m anything if not honest and willing to put myself out there. Yikes. Okay, so I let the holidays get the better of me and after my yearly trip to the doctor I realized that by not stepping on a scale in a year I put on more than a few pounds. Reality checks SUCK! Now I know I’m not overweight or a tub o’ lard by any means BUT I do know that I can do better. This just proves I’m not the exception. That I, too, have to work at it and that I, too, fail sometimes. *single tear tracking slowly down my slightly plumper cheek* My diet is finally back on track and my triathlon training is underway and going fantastic. So what better way to kick off the whole process than by posting my “before” body for all the world to see. Right? GULP! Here are my stats….oh crap.
Height : 5’5″ this fluctuates all the time….I’m kidding…unless I’m wearing heals.
Weight: 142lbs (dear heavens why am I doing this?!?!) Oh wait is that one of the kids standing on it with me? No??? *tear*
Body fat % : 19% (Thought it would be A LOT worse, clearly I’ve gained a good amount of muscle which will account, to some degree, for my higher stats.)
Waist : 29″ (Used to be 26″…ouch)
Thighs (in all their thunderous glory): 22″ (used to be 19″)
Biceps: 11″ (Used to be 9″ so I guess I’ve got bigger guns now….Don’t come after me Obama!!)
Hips: 32.5″ (Was 30″)
Shoulders: 42″ (was 38″)

Okay…band aid ripped off. Ouch. My goals are: lose 15-20 lbs but minimize muscle loss…this may be difficult. Slim down waist, legs and hips. Drop my body fat to around 15%. But ultimately its going to be eating healthy and fueling properly for all the additional training I’m taking on …this is new to me so there will most likely be adjustments. I’ve already discovered the pitfall of not being properly fueled. Not fun. Bleh. It will also be about becoming stronger and faster and all around better at endurance. I will be taking monthly measurements and do another blog right before my Ironman and then obviously a post about my experience. Cause you all want to hear about it I know. 😉  Well, I’ve embarrassed myself enough for one day. Terminator out.

    You have nothing to be embarrassed about! I can’t wait to see your after photos!

    • Thanks Erica! And trust me from weighing 114lbs at my smallest to back up to 142lbs is a reality check for me! Am hoping this motivates me to stick to eating healthier!!! 🙂
