Here are some pictures from today. The first two are of my basement mini-gym. The next picture is of my October workout schedule. I put that one in the basement so I know what I'm doing every day and I also keep a paper version in my room. Since I'm combining 2 programs I decided it was best to write it all down. I'm totally a list-maker kind of person and if it's written down I'm more likely to do it. Last week I didn't miss any workouts.

And as the inquiring mind of Fat Free Me requested, the last picture is a weight belt update. The buckle actually touches now. Wooo Hooo. Just a few more inches and I should be able to wear it again.

As for my food, I'm eating between 1300-1600 calories/day. I don't think I'm going into starvation mode especially since I've changed up my eating plan. I'm now eating 5-6 small meals a day. This morning when I weighed myself the scale is on it's way down again. I think it was all the weight lifting thing.

Thanks everybody for checking in on me.

    Good to hear that you are getting enough calories in... when you mentioned you weren't eating enough calories to cause the weight gain, that was what I thought you meant... that the calorie intake was low. Good to see that they scale is moving down now... with the change in routine (switching to 5-6 smaller meals versus 3 larger ones) confuses the body so that could be a part of it...and the gain of muscle is another reason... Keep the tape measure handy as that is sometimes a better way to see progress... Good luck with your continued journey.

    I think it is awesome that you have posted your workout schedule, I has just put on my blog, that I wanted to work out a schedule.. well I am not sure it said all that, but I do know I wanted to make one, so I know what I am doing....
    Good stuff.. on making a plan... hope you have a great day

  3. I like your workout room and chart. Charts are fun. I haven't actually made a workout plan, I've just been doing it when I have time, which is never. Thank you for the inspiration, now that I realize I need to make a schedule maybe this will help me start going down instead of up.
