I haven’t disappeared. I’ve just been very busy over the past couple of days. ♥♥
Is it bad that I identify with this? My self-esteem is pretty healthily fluffed.
♥ don’t mindlessly consume caffeine all day. instead, take control of your caffeine intake.
♥ garnish your diet with caffeine (preferably from tea or coffee) when you’re low on energy after a workout or from a low carb diet. this can help you get through a tough couple of hours when you’re totally drained but you have to keep going.
♥ cut off caffeine 3 to 5 hours before bedtime so you can sleep better (more sleep means more muscle growth, weight loss, and a healthier body)
♥ caffeine takes about 45 minutes to really start working and it gives you extra energy for up to two hours. but even if you don’t feel “buzzed”, caffeine intake earlier in the day can still prevent you from falling asleep.
♥ the most anyone should drink is about 300 or 400mg of caffeine a day.
On day 3 I did 60 in a row without stopping. This morning I could only do 20. I think the 30 Day Shred yesterday really wore me out. Oh well, I will just space them out throughout the day :)
Before: 165 January
During: 164 April
thats right, just a one pound difference here. do not pay attention to the number on the school. this is about a four month difference and I becamse extremely frustrated when the number on the scale didn’t budge. It was so discouraging and I was starting to make so many excuses.
This past week I’ve been more motivated than ever to reach my goal!

Your total body mass does NOT predict how you will look, and anybody who thinks so is a bit off in the head.
Your weight goal shouldn’t be a number you just made up because it sounded nice. Your goals should be health, endurance, fitness level, self-satisfaction, body fat %, or other numbers that actually have relevance on how you will look and feel.
- 59 inches, or
- 4 feet, 11 inches,
- or 1.50 meters
as of april 26th, 2013. my last measurements were on april 12th, 2013, which was 14 days ago.
- weight: 102.2lbs (down 4.4 pounds)
- bust: 32 inches (no change)
- arms: 9.2 inches (down .3 inches)
- waist: 25 inches (down 1 inch)
- belly: 30 inches (down 3 inches)
- hips: 31.5 inches (down 1.5 inch)
- butt: 35 inches (not previously measured)
- thighs: 19.5 inches (down .5 inches)
I honestly thought I would not have many changes at all. This makes me really happy! I was especially surprised to see my waist and hips go down by a whole inch! \(^-^)/
Also, everything got smaller except my boobs! Score! I decided to keep track of my ass as well. Just in case it leaves me I want to wave it goodbye!
I’ve also only been eating like 75% healthy and doing very little exercising, so I’m happy :)
- 1075 calorie intake
- Day 3 crunch challenge, 30 Day Shred, jump rope, Wii fit, 10+ minutes of stretches
- 651 calorie deficit
I made some mistakes during the day about how I worked out and what I ate that caused me to go over my goal of a 1000 calorie deficit. I especially payed poor attention to my diet earlier in the day that caused me to binge later on, and my fluid intake was about 24oz lower than normal.
I am trying to keep my protein intake at 1 gram/lb of body weight. I need to eat 3 scoops of protein powder (420 calories total for 75g protein).
It is haard. I really just want to get drunk and watch netflix. But instead I’ll drink protein water and watch netflix from a stationary bike.

I always said I don’t have a weight goal - and I really didn’t, because how I look and how healthy I am is more important than an arbitrary number.
However, after doing some research, I now have a weight goal!
I want to get down to 15-17% body fat. I am hoping that I can do so by early or mid June!
Now that I know how much weight I can safely lose, I feel comfortable focusing on a weight loss goal.
I made a chart with all of my BMR info! I think it is pretty :)
If you are interested in finding out these numbers for yourself, you can send me a message and I will do my best to help!
Having numbers like these is really useful because it keeps you focused on realism. I feel so badly for women who are 5’5 or 5’6 saying their “UGW” is 80 pounds. I am only 4’11 and weighing 80lbs would most likely kill me if I maintained it for long enough.
If you are on a serious weight loss journey, it’s stupid to set arbitrary numbers for yourself. You should figure out how much you can actually realistically weigh without hurting yourself. Your lowest weight should put you at 10% body fat or over.
I am pro weight loss but I’m also a fan of reality. I understand some people want unrealistic or dangerous weights, and I know I can’t change their minds. But for people who want to be healthy-skinny, it pays to know these numbers.
