Default Finally - my pics

As I said earlier, I'd post a pic or two when my husband was around to direct me through the resizing.

My starting stats on day 1 were the same as at the end of the last contest:

-weight 136/137 lbs
-shoulders 42.25”
-chest above bust 34.5”
-chest below bust 30.75”
-waist 28”
-belly button 29”
-below belly button (‘baby belly’) 31.25”
-hips (widest part) 37”
-thigh (widest part) 21.25” - this is for my thinner left leg; my rt leg is 3/4" larger (so bizarre)

caliper readings (I've never tracked these before - should be interesting)
-5/8" low on belly (right above c-section scar)
-3/4" higher on the belly (right below belly button)
-7/8" half-way between belly button and hip bone (both sides)
-1/4" at hips

Well, I feel a bit better now...I was able to catch up on a few threads...not all, but more than I thought I would. I'm going to have a green smoothie as my last "meal" of the day. I didn't have any snacks today and have had only 3 meals, 2 which were comprised mostly of salad.

Tomorrow is a shopping day w/ my Mom and I will do phase 2 workout B in the 6-mo BW manual (this is the last week of this workout). I'll run for intervals.

I think I've convinced my Mom to try ESE w/ us tomorrow night into Monday. She's never tried it but has read my book on it so knows why it's good for her. She's been doing TT since soon after I started, but doesn't pay much attention to her nutrition...and she knows this is a factor in why her clothes are snug. So perhaps the social support of us fasting will help her to give it a go. Keep your fingers crossed!

Doesn't that feel great about the pants?!?!? Congrats!

Most recent 2 workouts:

6-mo BW manual phase 2 A workout (on day 6, Thurs 1-13-11)

• No rest.
2) Stability Ball Leg Curl – 12 repetitions
• No rest.
3) Prisoner Lunge – 12 repetitions per side
• No rest.
4) Off-set Pushups – 10 repetitions per side**

9) Elevated Pushup – 10 repetitions per side**
• No rest.
10) Bicycle Crunch – 25 repetitions per side
**Doing as many push-ups as possible on "toes" before resorting to kneeling push-ups; swapping sides back and forth as 2nd side I do always gets "less" on toes (arms tired...)
• Rest 1 minute before repeating the circuit 2 more times.
Interval Training Workout - running, 1'/1' @"8" x 6; 5'/5' for warm-up/cool-down

6-mo BW manual phase 2 B workout (on day 9, Sunday, 1-16-11)
Circuit
1) Prisoner Squat – 12 repetitions
• No rest.
2) Jumping Jacks – 50 repetitions
• No rest.
3) X-Over Step-up – 10 repetitions per side
• No rest.
4) Plank– 60 second hold
• No rest.
5) Side Plank – 30 second hold per side
• No rest.
6) Pushup – 30 repetitions (did 10; 7; 5 on toes; did the rest kneeling - all - first time I've been able to do all 30 - yay)
• No rest.
7) Siff Squat – 25 repetitions
• No rest.
8) Stability Ball Jackknife – 12 repetitions
• No rest.
9) Mountain Climber – 15 repetitions per side
• No rest.
10) Chin-up – 10 repetitions (did 5; 4; 4 with a 'hop' to get up; then did the rest as eccentrics w/ chair)
• Rest 1 minute before repeating the circuit 2 more times.
Interval Training Workout - running 2'/1' @ "8" x 4; 5'/5' warm-up/cool-down

I'm psyched about the chin-ups. I only recently tried doing the "hop up" as I have been able to do one hanging ever since I tried them but wasn't getting any more even though I've been doing assisted and eccentrics. So the first time I did the hop up I managed 2 on the first set; that was only a few weeks ago. Now I"m up to 5 with the hop up and getting similar #s on the following sets. I haven't tried to see if I am able to do more than 1 yet using 'proper form' (starting from hanging), but nevertheless I am making gains and for this I am pleased. Also - I had not been doing regular pushups for awhile and had been doing all kneeling. They were getting easy so I decided to try on my toes again; I was amazed at how many I could do and even more amazed that I was able to do all 30 of the push-ups yesterday (even though most were kneeling) since when I was doing them all kneeling a few weeks ago I couldn't get past 25 for the 2nd and 3rd sets.

I will do my last phase 2 workout tomorrow and then on Thursday will start phase 3. My timing is a bit messed up as I had the injury before the contest started; usually I would start a new workout on Sunday. Oh, well. Makes life more interesting, I suppose.

Congrats on all your progress from the loose jeans to the pushups and pull ups! No

You rock! I've been putting off the chin ups and pull ups but you've inspired me to try again.

Yay for loose jeans! I'm starting to experience this pleasant phenomena myself

Awesome on the pull ups too! That's a goal of mine, but I think for after the contest

Thanks everyone for all the kind comments!

I almost forgot the best news of all. My Mom - who I believe I spoke of the other day - is doing a fast with me today. She started last night after dinner and still hadn't eaten anything at lunch today. She had to leave to drive home around noon, so she figures by the time she gets home, goes to the grocery store and makes dinner, it will be 6:30 and time to eat. I'm hoping it goes well for her; I really think this is her answer to losing the weight as she's not willing to change the way she eats (and really, she doesn't eat poorly). She didn't start gaining weight until after she went through menopause which was quite late compared to most women and the weight battle started a few years later (she'll be 64 this year). Anyway, I really want this to work for her!
