Baseline Assessment (#2)

Good Evening Loves,

So today is Monday which according to the challenge I am currently doing (Mr. Shut Up and Train’s 21 day challenge) it is baseline assessment day. So I also decided to make this measurement day. I do not do that as often as I should. Mainly because sometimes I am afraid the inches will increase instead of decrease if I know my eating was not on point. Here are my current stats.

Neck

14.75”

Bust

38”

Stomach

43.5”

Waist

40.5”

Butt

50”

Right Thigh/ Left Thigh

30.5”/30.5”

Right Arm/ Left Arm

14”/14”

Right Calf/ Left Calf

16.5”/16.5”

DISCLAIMER: Since I measured myself I am sure these are not the exact measurements but I can guarantee they are pretty close.

O and before I forget here is my baseline assessment workout:

  1. One Mile Run as Fast as You Can
12:50
  1. Pushups (Knee) for 60 secs
21
  1. Burpees for 60 secs
13
  1. Single Leg Toe Touches for 60 secs (each leg)
26/26
  1. Hands over Head Body Squats for 60 secs.
29
  1. Tricep Dips for 60 secs
21

I have decided that I am only going to actually step on a scale once a month and do a fat % once a month as well. I don’t know if I am the only one but I am fitting into my clothes better without seeing ANY real physical results. Am I just imagining it or is muscle really taking its place? At this time I do not know but hey I am just going to keep doing what I am doing and not let the number deter my determination.

For this week I baked some chicken so I could make salads even though I haven’t decided what meal they are. I made spaghetti with whole wheat noodles and ground turkey (97% so pretty much no fat) and I broiled some tilapia. I made brown rice in bulk since it takes forever to make but I think I will be regretting that by Wednesday. As far as veggies, I prefer to cook those on a day by day basis. Today after my workout I have pretty much inhaled a gallon of water because I have been feeling extremely dehydrated. (Pauses writing to take sip of water)

Here are my planned workouts for the week. I do 3 sets of everything and my goal to get to running 5 miles in under an hour. I stretch and do cardio before I do anything.
