After yesterday’s meltdown I got on the scale this morning to find out where the numbers fell. The last time I checked all the scale data it was at 11:30am but today it was 9:15am. My weight was 199.4, BMI 31.2, Fat 45.8%, Muscle 23.7%, Resting Metabolism 1645, Body Age 60 and Visceral Fat 9. All the numbers are going in the right direction so the only thing I can do is to stick with it and not give up. It is so frustratingly slow!
Today began my new workout schedule with upper body strength day. I am breaking down the strength days to upper and lower with heavier weights and few reps then upper and lower with lighter weight and more reps. I started with heavier weights today. This is really the first time I have personally trained this way. I have always opted for lighter weight and more reps. Since strength training is key in weight loss in menopause I want to make sure I am on a good routine. I love the video of the 81 year old lady who never exercised until she was 56. Be sure and follow the link and watch her. She is very inspiring! If she can be lean in menopause I can too.
