The sad truth of the 2011 Holiday Season on my body:(

Day 1 has been miserable. I wanted to start on a Sunday, so that I end on a Saturday and can take my pics again on a Sunday, but I am STILL sick. I have been sick for nearly a week now, and I hope I feel up to a hardcore workout tomorrow night. UGH! At the moment I can’t breath:P

Anyway….I also wanted to talk about my before stats! UGH! I know I have been “off” lately, but putting aside being sick off and on for 2 weeks, and feeling close to death for the last 6 days….I gotta say, I am ashamed of my weight and BF% and measurements. I could make a few excuses about bloat and such, but we will see how quickly it comes off and THEN we will find out how much was really water weight.

Here is the sad truth at 8PM Sunday 1-8-12:

Weight – 161

BF% – 22%

neck -14

chest – 35

bust – 37

bicep – 12

forearm – 10

waist -33

abdomen – 35

hips -38

thigh -22

calf – 16

These WILL be better in 12 weeks! I am determined to be leaner and hopefully faster for the 2012 Illinois Marathon in April! AND have the athletic, fit body I have always dreamed of! But dreams don’t just happen, you have to work for them! I am ON IT!

Who is with me?

  1. Oh Brenda, tho I understand the frustration you feel with yourself, LOOK AT HOW FAR YOU HAVE COME! YOU have accomplished WONDERFUL things with/for your body! I BELIEVE 100% THAT YOU WILL achieve all you want to, in 2012. Let your body “rest up” – it probably has a wee bit of an idea WHAT you are going to put it thru! πŸ™‚
    THANK YOU for your guidance, advice, and time you take out of YOUR day to create a healthier US!
    Love you!


  2. Thank you Lois! And I am sorry! That did come off a bit more negative than I intended. I really am not down on myself, I am just frustrated with being SICK! It has been a LONG time since I have been sick, let alone for this long. It has been a week today, and I am still not even close to 100%. As soon as I feel back to myself, I know I will get to it and my stats will go back to normal. THEN they will improve:)

    I really just wanted to put them out there to be accountable for it all. I DID graze too much over the holidays, and now it is time to accept it and take charge of it:) No one can do it for me but ME! And in the words of the inspirational Jennifer Hudson….”I GOT THIS!”
