Week 1: Just Checking In...

So, I figured it was time to do my body composition again. It's been a while since I've done it and to be honest, I was avoiding it like the plague. I knew that I had put on some weight during the holiday season and I just couldn't drag myself to do the pinches. I knew that if I did, then I would see the numbers and it would be true...I had gained.
And now I'm officially over it and ready to start a new challenge. I'm using my little sisters wedding, which is coming up in about 7 weeks, to help keep me motivated and get back on track.
Here are my starting stats from Saturday:

Weight: 154.6
Body Fat: 24.78%
LBM: 116.29 lbs
Chest: 9 mm
Midaxilla (below armpit): 12 mm
Abdomen: 24.5 mm
Suprailiac (diag. fold abv. hip bone): 19 mm
Thigh: 30 mm
Subscapular (below shoulder blade): 14.5 mm
Tricep: 19 mm

This week I'll be doing chest/back with 25 mins HIIT (Mon.), 45 mins cardio (Tues.), hams/glutes/calves with 25 mins HIIT (Wed.), 45 mins cardio (Thurs.), biceps/triceps with 35 mins HIIT (Fri.), 45 mins cardio (Sat.), and REST (Sun.).

I'll be following meal plan #1. After my body comp next weekend, I'll have a better idea of whether or not anything with my meal plan needs to be changed.
