Thick Thursday

Weighed in this morning at 173.

Arms:    13 1/2" {loss of 1/2 inch}
Chest:      38"
Waist:    38 1/2" {loss of 1/2 inch}
Hips:       40"
Thighs:   24 1/2"

Not excited about my lame stats.
That's a 2 pound gain.
And I'd feel better about it if I lost more inches. (ie, gaining muscle...)
Not to mention, I've been lingering among the 171-173 for over a month now....I HATE A PLATEAU!!

On the up side...I feel good abut how I feel I look.
Yeah, isn't that a bitch...when you think you're doing well, that bitch whore scale slaps you in the face.
I've been doing the 30 Day Shred EVERY DAY since Oct 1st.
...I can't even begin to tell you how freaken awesome I feel putting my gold star on the calendar to say I've completed it for the day. I know I want to see a sticker for every day when the month is over, so that's mostly why I keep up with it!
I'm also kicking my running game up a notch.
...meaning I'm getting back to running at least 5 days a week (at 3 miles a day).

Perhaps I feel that running will help me lose the weight and break through the plateau.

And trust me when I say that I am eating healthy.
I think that's the important part of the equation.
So I don't want y'all to think that I'm just saying, "oh yeah, I eat healthy!" (As I'm wiping the Oreo crumbs off my mouth)
...cos that has to be what's happening if I'm exercising like a haus and "eating healthy", right?!?
Well, kick those nasty thoughts, cos baby got back this B ain't lying!

I upped my calories to 1500 and now that I'm running again, I try to eat more on top of that.
I still stay pretty below (within 300 calories) the total calories I gain by working out.
But I find it hard to have the calories add up.
Consuming fruits and veggies and lean protein, etc; they tend to be low in calories.
I'm also trying to eat every 2 hours.

I've started all this about 2 days ago.
...running consistently on top of 30DS, eating more and more often.
I guess I thought that I would've seen more of a difference in my weight in those 2 days.
(Perhaps wishful thinking)
But, I weighed 173 on Monday and I weigh 173 today.

Nothing pisses me off more than a plateau!
