Good Saturday Morning to you!
Thursday marked Day 30 of the Power 90 program so yesterday I hopped on the scale for the official weigh in and took my measurements. Here is how things shook out:
Weight: lost 3.5lbs
Body Fat: lost 1%
Waist: lost 1.5 inches
Hips: lost 1 inch
Right Arm: lost .25 inches
Left Arm: no change
Right Thigh: lost .5 inches
Left Thigh: no change
I'm happy with the results, but then again, I'm not really happy with the results. I remember a time where I could have dropped twice that amount of weight in half the time. As I've gotten older, my body has become increasingly stubborn about letting weight go...however, it has no problem adding a few!
So, to know that I went from hardly working out at all and eating lunch and dinner out at least 5 or 6 times a week to working out 6 days a week and being much better about food...only 3.5 pounds seems a bit of a let down.
It is moving in the right direction though and I will try to concentrate on that positive note. Plus, now that I'm in the 3-4 phase of the program, the next 30 will hopefully see a bigger change.
I don't know if I've mentioned this, but I'm going to Egypt for a couple of weeks in October. This 90 days just barely squeezes in and I started when I did because I don't want to hate what I look like in the pictures of the trip. I have to make these next 60 days the best I can!!
On a different topic, we had a big announcement at work this week. My boss, who has been a good friend and the only boss I've had through my 6 and a half years at this company despite being lucky enough to have several promotions over that period of time, has decided to take a regional position and I won't be reporting to her anymore :( Now, I will be reporting directly to our President. He used to be our VP of Finance when I was still in our accounting division so I've worked very closely with him in the past and we have a great relationship...but now he's my boss?
I just can't wrap my head around it, ya know? I know my current boss inside and out. I know what I can get away with and what I'm going to need to explain. I know how she works. This is going to be a huge adjustment for me. Next week is my first "check in" meeting with him...so we'll see!
Another note about work...we had a potluck yesterday! I did pretty good at portion control, just took small amounts of things that I wanted to try, but I'll be honest and say I definitely at too many sweets! My workout last night suffered...I could tell I wasn't properly fueled. The craziest part is that...TMI coming up...my body basically knew it was full of crappy food. First thing this morning, it let me know it was time to get it out. Let me tell you, I don't generally have that fast of a turn around :)
But, that made me feel like things are on the right track. I used to eat crap all the time and my body didn't care. Now, it's trying to get rid of it asap. That is kind of amazing to me. And it reminds me that I'm doing something right!
Sorry for the lack of photos, this week kind of got away from me and I've barely had time to get anything "extra" in! I hope you all enjoy the great weather this weekend!!
Food for thought:
Have you had to change bosses within the same company? What was your experience?
Is your body good at telling you when you've eaten something you shouldn't have or do you have a stomach of steel?
