2015 – August

MONTHLY MEASUREMENTS

wt – weight in pounds  /  Bf – body fat %  /  W – water %  /  BD – bone density

ws – waist in inches /  ch – chest in inches / ds – destroyers in inches / bc – bicep in inches

What are destroyers? The roundest part of my thigh which includes the lovely curve of my outer thigh as well as the not so lovely curve of my inner thigh – you know, the one that eventually destroys all of your pants!

I use the left leg and arm for the ds and bc measurements.  No particular reason why but I am sure my left leg is larger than my right.
