Well, here we go..... Tomorrow is the big day and I seriously can't wait, esp after looking at my pictures. I also took my measurements (as recommended by the P90X program) and weight. Here are my starting stats:
Weight: 130 lbs
Chest: 34 inches
Waist: 30 inches (at belly button)
Hips: 36 inches
Right Bicep: 11.5 inches flexed
Left Bicep: 11.75 inches flexed
Right Thigh: 20.5 inches (mid-thigh)
Left Thigh: 20.25 inches (mid-thigh)
My biggest goal right now is to lose weight and tighten my abs. I'm not sure what my measurements should be or or how I should set some of the goals because I tend to put on muscle pretty easily and I don't know what my normal measurements are. I'm guessing my bicep measurements will stay the same or increase. Hopefully the rest all go down....
GOAL WEIGHT: 120 lbs
I also have a strenght goal I'm going to set for myself - I want to be able to do 20 pullups. That might be asking a lot. I've done it before but I don't think I've ever started out this far out of shape. Its a pride thing for me - while I was still an active duty Marine, it was always my goal to be able to do as many pullups as the boys. Us girls aren't required to do pullups - we do a flexed arm hang instead. In order to max the fitness test for the guys, you have to do 20 pullups......so once again 20 pullups is my goal.
Last but not least....the pictures. The worst is the profile view for me - they you can see just how much I need my abs back to hold everything in. Ab Ripper X, here I come!
