Seeing some slight improvements in measurements. Injured my lower abdominal muscles during weight lifting, will have to be more careful for awhile. Also doing a good job not going batty on Saturdays.

Nineth week measurements

for reals
September 22, 2012

Goal measurements:
Weight: 110 lbs.
Chest: 32"
Waist: 22"
Hips: 33"

Current measurements:
Weight: 146 lbs.
Chest: 34"
Waist: 28"

Measurements went up or stayed steady week-to-week. Began new weight training program of basic power lifts. This has already made big improvements in my overall appearance, but didn't have as much affect on my core measurements. Next week I'll continue with the same diet and exercise regimen.

Eighth week measurements

for reals
September 15, 2012

Goal measurements:
Weight: 110 lbs.
Chest: 32"
Waist: 22"
Hips: 33"

Current Measurements:
Weight: 145 lbs.
Chest: 34"
Waist: 29.5"
Hips: 38.5"

This past week we experimented with increasing calories overall. In the course of the week I actually I gained a little bit of weight, but I think through exercise I was able to burn it off. The benefit of increased calories is increased energy, so I don't feel so sluggish throughout the day. I might experiment with shaving off a little bit of calories, some of my meals are rather big.

I will continue with my workout plan, cardio 5-7 times per week, bloody barbell 3 times per week, each week increasing weight.

Seventh week measurements

September 8, 2012

Goal measurements:
Weight: 110 lbs.
Chest: 32"
Waist: 22"
Hips: 33"

Current measurements:
Weight: 146 lbs.
Chest: 36"
Waist: 30.5"
Hips: 39"

My measurements seem to be stuck within the same half-inch or so. Removing beans seems to have corrected our digestive issues. No cheat meals this weekend. Cravings for the past week included toast and powdered donuts.

Sixth week measurements

for reals
September 1, 2012

Goal measurements:
Weight: 110 lbs.
Chest: 32"
Waist: 22"
Hips: 33"

Current measurements:
Weight: 147 lbs.
Chest: 35.5"
Waist: 29"
Hips:39"

Update:
I've been very bad about posting my measurements on time, need to do so every weekend whether it's Saturday or Sunday.

Past couple of weeks included black beans to our diets, however this yielded flat-lining results, as well as terrible digestive problems. Black beans have been eliminated and calories reduced overall.

Weight increases every 2 to 3 sessions of bloody barbell complex. Can now jog a mile without slowing down, as long as I don't have any lady issues.

3-day cheat weekend coincided with Labor Day, so no cheat meal this weekend, will go through to the next weekend to see how we do.

Between weeks:
Lost about 10 lbs. in a week. Considering how badly I slipped on my last cheat day that's quite a bit. Most of it was probably water though.
Lost about an inch off every area measured, including legs. Except arms, those won't, and don't have to, show much growth.
Bloody barbell complex is a fun and challenging workout. Will eventually have to start putting a little bit of weight on the bar.

For next week:
Everything going pretty good so far, stick with it. Do cardio 5 times per week, preferably in the morning but the afternoon works too. Keep up with meals, use Hot Rox in the morning to help wake up and rev up for the day. Do measurements on Saturday mornings from now on, before breakfast.

Adjusted goals for the week:
Begin new program, blood on the barbell. Train 3 times per week with Ryan.
Continue cardio 5 times per week, including DEATHJOG 2012 on Tuesday.
