May Challenge - BELLY BE GONE!!!!!!!

Monday, May 02, 2011

April results -
Weight loss - 5.6 lbs
Inches lost - 2.75 inches

Overall totals for this year -
Weight loss - 30.2
Inches lost - 13.25
Miles - 274

If you notice, I lost exactly the same amount of inches as last month BUT I lost fewer pounds! That is NOT a bad thing. It means that I am losing FAT and retaining muscle, I guess the TRX is doing its job!

Now, onto May. There is a great deal going on this month so I am breaking my challenge up into 3 parts. I am calling the month of May....Melting My Measurements, Operation....BELLY BE GONE! I know the name is quite crazy but you have to have fun with this to keep it fresh!

Overall goals for this month -
1. Lose another 4 pounds
2. Aim for another 1 inch lost from waist and 1 inch from hips

Starting Measurements -
Chest - 38 inches
Waist - 28.5 inches
Hips - 36 inches
Thigh - 18 inches
Calves - 14 inches
Bicep - 10.75 inches

***I have deleted the remainder of this blog due to privacy concerns and therefore will not be so open as to my dates of travel. My Family informed me that complete strangers now know the dates I am traveling and it is not safe -- this is a crazy world we live in. I will post results when I return but nothing in detail leading up to my trip. Thank you guys for understanding!***

    Thank you! You have just challenged me to do a "Belly Be Gone" month also. Mine will be a little different (Paris, ahhhhhhh). Never the less I will work toward another wonderful trip.

    Seriously. YOU have a Nanny right? Cmon fess up. Going to Austria , Germany, Paris, France , Ireland.........Who does that???? Not anyone normal.. you must have a nanny. I asked you about that before and you never answered. So that leads me to believe you do. I am glad your happy and are working out with your mom. Your situation is not of the norm though. I think alot of people are envious of you, but I am not. I am happy for you. I don't know ANY stay at home moms that travel as much as you, or have had as many opportunities. Most of us are lucky to travel to Walmart....LOL.....Have you always stayed at home while DH worked? Have fun.

    Jen, you and I have roughly the same measurements, and I also have a goal to lose 1.5 inches from my waist and 1 inch from my hips. I hadn't set a hard date for it yet, but 4-6 weeks seems like a fair date considering I am participating in two challenges this month. Enjoy your well-deserved vacation!

    emoticon what a great plan! I have no doubt that you will achieve this! YOu are amazing

    WOW!!!! love the challenge title! You've inspired me to get on top of the nutrition! starting today...well, right now. I've already had a whole wheat waffle(leftover) with butter and Log cabin syrup..and coffee adn creamer...so the next thing I eat HAS to be healthy! thanks,Jen for your inpsiration and motivation!
    I'm giong to adopt your 'belly be gone' for May,too-is that alright? I still have the belly....it won't ever totally disappear b/c of so m any pregnancies,but I can get the fluffy blanket off the top!
    Have a fabulous time on your vacation!can't wait to see your food pics while you're there!!!(be sure to stick the 3 of you lovely family members into pics,too)

    Have a great trip! It sounds like you have a plan to go on. Watch out for the crepes in Paris, they're addictive and definitely not the healthiest (especially with nutella!)

    You have a wonderful plan. Thank you for reminding us that it all starts with NUTRITION. I will use that as my inspiration to EAT BETTER this week!
