Motivating via NSV!
Posted on 2012-07-22 by rainman3k
Hope everyone is having a great summer!
This has been a busy weekend, but life in general has gotten busy too. I added another day in the gym, started doing more cross fit sessions, picked up the intensity of my workouts and have made an effort to eat cleaner than ever! Oh and did I mention my social circle has been expanding, lol
Unfortunately today clean eating slipped away due to eating breakfast out, Bloody Mary's with a friend, a graduation party then deciding to clean out the fridge for dinner, but I digress :)
Since I started on MFP I have collected my stats every month and taken photo's to measure my success. This month I lost some more body fat to reach 29.1% overall, which represents a loss of 12.8% in 9 months. I also lost 2" in my chest measurement AND found that I actually now have a relaxed & flexed measurement on my Biceps!
A fun NSV I realized the last week is that all of the shorts I bought at the beginning of the season are now to big, so I am buying new ones as I see them on clearence for NEXT year.
I also bit the bullet and bought 4 new pairs of pants for work, seeing as one of the owners had a great laugh this week over how baggy the pants I bought in February had become.
Now on to the details of the week:
