Fitness Adventures: Battle Log - Week 1

MY MAIN QUEST:  Over the next 6 weeks, I would like to healthly drop one size which is roughly about 10-15 pounds for me. In order to accomplish this, I plan to:
  • Stick to my diet (I am doing 4 Hour Body diet)
  • Go to the gym 4x a week (stretch/cardio every day and slowly add in weights)
  • Sleep a minimum of 7 hours a night.
  • Read 10 books via audiobook, ebook and regular book. 2 of them need to be non-fiction because I tend to be more of a fiction girl and 2 need to be a classic because I tend to read newer stuff.
Week 1 Friday Selfie: Save Ferris
Monday (Day 1):
  • Did just okay on the diet
  • Went to the gym and (according to my UP app) moved a total of 7,403 steps
  • Slept 7 hours and 14 minutes (according to my UP app)
Tuesday (Day 2):
  • Wasn't as good on the diet as I had some candy at work
  • Went to the gym, did extra time on the eliptical and moved a total of 9,324 steps
  • Slept 8 hours and 7 minutes

Wednesday (Day 3):
  • Super good on the diet.
  • No gym due to work schedule, but moved a total of 8,663 steps
  • Slept 7 hours and 18 minutes

Thursday (Day 4):
  • Stuck to the diet
  • Went to the gym and moved a total of 9,580 steps
  • Slept 7 hours and 42 minutes
Friday (Day 5):
  • I was good on the diet even though we ordered food at work
  • Didn't go to the gym, but we had a busy night at work and I tried moving and stretching when I could and moved a total of 8,595 steps
  • Slept 7 hours and 9 minutes

Saturday (Day 6):
  • This was my cheat day, but didn't cheat that much. I had a grilled turkey and cheese at a restaurant
  • No gym, but parked far and did extra walking when I went to dinner and a movie (The Lego movie which was fun) moved a total of 5,572 steps
  • Slept 8 hours and 11 minutes, but that was broken up. I was wide awake until 5a and then awake at 10a, but I took a nap to get more sleep in.

Sunday (Day 7):
  • Did okay on the diet
  • No gym and wasn't feeling great so stayed home and watched TV all day (Dirty Sexy Money marathon), but moved a total of 989 steps
  • Slept 8 hours and 17 minutes

MY SIDE QUEST (3/10 done) (1/2 classics) (0/2 Non-Fic)
  • I finished "Uglies" by Scott Westerfeld which I started on Monday (audiobook) [Don't recommend, by the way]
  • Finished Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk: A Modest Bestiary (Audiobook) by David Sedaris which was enjoyable.
  • Finished Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury (Audiobook) which I *loved* and wished I had read sooner. So one classic down.
  • I have finished four chapters of "Bourne Identity" by Robert Ludlum (Kindle)
 End of the week recap:
  • Mostly good on the eating
  • One day short on the gym this first week
  • Met sleep goal on 6/7 days without a nap
  • On track for reading including having read one classic. I have another classic and a non-fiction that I should have from the library by Wednesday.
  • I also decided to talk a pic on Fridays with my cell phone for my battle logs
  • I have lost 5 pounds this week, but I think that is mostly water weight.
  • Measurements DECREASED by:
    • Waist - 1.5"
    • Hips - .5"
    • Bust - No change
    • Underbust - 1"

Don't "undo" the good you did by saying "It was mostly water weight." You did a great job! What was the APP you have? Is it on your phone or is it in a specific arm band thing?

Thank you. I bounce up and down 5 pounds all the time which why I was down playing it. I am using Jawbone's Up band with their app. I'm going to do a blog post next week about it.
