This is Day 13 of my attempt to get a flat stomach by the end of June. I’m doing it eating one meal a day and I’ve set myself a challenge to do 10,000 push ups and run a marathon– 1.5 miles at a time, all by the end of the month.
I’ve got 17 days left to achieve my goals.
June 13th 2012
Weight: 170.6 lbs (Down 1.2)
Chest: 39.25 (No change)
Belly: 34 (Down .25)
Waist: 34 (No change)
Hips: 36.75 (Down .25)
Is the scale lying to me? Am I losing weight too fast? Maybe both. Maybe neither.
But either way I used it as a day to be slightly more relaxed.
My skin is looking a bit ‘empty’ and isn’t contracting fast enough to keep up with the fat loss.
I suspect that by the end of the month I may have lost the fat but gained some skin.
It might not be a great look but I’ll worry about that when it happens.
Yes, I had a bit of a day off and ate a little more than I have been eating recently.
I also cut back ot the push ups and I didn’t go for a run. Neither of these was intentional, it’s just the way my day worked out.
Around 11pm I announced to my wife that I was going out for a run and then promptly sat my backside down in front of the computer and surfed the interwebs to discover more about my latest burning interest: Ferret Sweaters!
By which I mean I procrastinated and wasted an hour in which I could have done anything to take me to towards any of my goals – not just my fitness goals – but instead I let the lazy part of my brain rule my actions. Hell, I could even have used that hour to get some extra sleep! And truth be told I wish I had. I need to bring my running back an hour or two.
I’m not mad about it. In fact it’s a little bit funny to realise that for all the changes I’ve made in my life, I still get tripped up by the old me.
Fortunately I didn’t do any damage – I just didn’t make any progress and I’m sure this will be reflected in my stats tomorrow.
275 push ups today. No run. (But I still did the 2 dog walks and ate close enough to my eating plan to make me feel it was an OK day.)
