The brick walls are not there to keep us out. The brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something. Because the brick walls are there to stop the people who don’t want it badly enough.

Consistent practice equals consistent progress.


Dead Last Finish is greater than Did Not Finish which greatly trumps Did Not Start.

BFL - Day 3

It is early in the day but I finally got around to taking my measurements. Since I have a doctor's appointment this afternoon I will also be getting on the scale so I will report back with what the DoD has to say.

Here are my measurements:

Bust - 47
Chest - 39 (wow that means the bra I am wearing is actually the right size!! That is a first in years!)
Waist - 44
Hips - 53.5
Thighs - (L)28, (R)28.25
Calves - (L)15, (R)15.25
Upperarm - (L)16.25, (R)15.75
Forearm - (L,R) 12.5

BF% - 45%

The pulmonologist diagnosed me with asthma based on symptoms. I am not surprised. I have to go have a chest x-ray and 2 different breathing tests to verify. Now to find out where to get an x-ray done that is covered by insurance!

I promised to follow up with what the DoD said my weight was so here it is. My weight was 234. I was 245 on Jan 7th so according to the DoD, I have lost about 11 pounds.

My BFL lesson today is that I really need to plan better. But this is week one so I can't expect to be perfect. This whole balance carb/protein thing is tricky. Well, for those of us who eat very little meat that is. I will be consuming animal tonight; my husband will be so thrilled! LOL

Food log:
Breakfast - Protein Shake with Blueberries
Lunch - Left over pasta salad with salmon
Snack - Seitan Jerky and coffee with soy cream
Dinner - Chicken breast cooked in a little sesame oil, bean sprouts and snappeas in lettuce wraps
Snack - goat cheese, cashews, rice crackers, carrots
