So let's start!
Hips: 48.5 inches (-0.25 inches)
Waist: 44.75 inches (-0.5 inches)
Arm: 14.5 inches (+0.25 inches)
Thigh: 26.5 inches (+0.25 inches)
Calf: 16.5 inches (same)
So I'm happy to see that I lost a few fraction inches from my mid line but I'm wondering about the gain in arms and thighs. I don't know if that's fat or muscle. I wonder. Either way it's good progress. I just have to keep it up. I realized also that I did not post last weeks measurements during my March Weigh In but I did measure and I'm subtracting (or adding) from last week.
I finally got off my lazy ass and brought out my 64 oz water bottle. It forced me to drink the amount of water I needed and there was less of a chance to "guesstimate" or pretend I did or didn't drink enough water. So this week I had 5/7 days with enough water in take if not more. I'm noticing also that I can really feel when I'm dehydrated so I make a point to drink more.

I did not count last week. Nor did I count the week before. I'm starting to really focus on reading my Paleo Diet book and have been very conscious of what I eat. I went to the grocery store on Friday and re-stocked on fruit, veggies, lean meat and olive oil. I'm so glad that spring is coming because I can finally start eating the fresh meals I love so much; fruit salads and spinach salads.
About twice last week I made sure to stretch and do some ab work. I really have to return to doing more arm work because I'm very lazy when it comes to my T-rex weak arms.
I actually wrote down my cardio this week. I thought I'd done nothing but when I put it all together I actually did quite a bit last week.
Monday: 1 mile run
Wednesday: 4.6 mile jog
Friday: 4 mile hike
Saturday: 6.5 mile jog (and messed up my left arch)
So although I didn't do cardio every day I did finally get some good miles in. 10k here I come!
Goals: My goals this week are to work on my diet and try out more Paleo friendly dishes. I also need to spread out my running and I'm planning on trying out a belly dancing class on Thursday. Hopefully it'll happen and I can talk about it after.
Have a great week everyone! Spring is coming!
