So my goal in February was to fit nicely into my size 16 jeans. I think I made it…do you?
It’s already February 21st – how did that happen?? Either way, I’ve been trying my hardest to get to my goal – of fitting into these pants – by the 28th. I have 7 days left, so I’m in the home stretch of this challenge. I didn’t feel like I made much progress this month at all, but that’s why I take pictures instead of listening to my inner voice.
Today is the 3rd day of my new hybrid program. So far – I’m in love with it AND I’m already feeling awesome from it. I am glad I found it and took the steps to see if something else would work better for me. I have done 2 days of Chalean Extreme and I am sorry I thought it wouldn’t be that great before. I bought it at least 4 years ago after falling in love with Turbo Jam. Then I got it and didn’t have the weights and just never got into it. I’ve had it forever and just never picked it up again. If not for one of my fellow Beachbody coaches posting amazing progress on instagram I may have never actually picked it up. Anyway, what I am learning to appreciate about the program are the compound movements. The weight exercises are very different from P90x and the sessions are full body instead of very focused on a certain area. So it’s just totally different. I didn’t really appreciate that before trying them out. I’m thinking that this is better for me while losing just based on a few sessions and the way I feel afterwards. I think P90x is going to be amazing for me once I am closer to the end of this weight loss journey.
It was also fun to do INSANITY again! I did plyo intervals yesterday and it’s JUST as hard as it used to be, which is the nice thing about INSANITY – it can’t get easier, ever. I was able to do so much more than I could when I was in month 1 in November. It’s kind of amazing how much more to me, because I felt like I was rocking it before, ha. I didn’t really realize how much room I had to grow. I want to do the fit test again one of these days to see how I do on that.
Now I’m heading off to the city to meet my friend for lunch. We are going to a vegan restaurant so I’m excited about that! But before I go, this week’s pictures from my size 16 mission.
Posted a little video on my thoughts on my challenge. My focus areas for the week are discussed in the video this week instead of me writing them out 🙂
Also please let me know if there are topics you would prefer I vlog about instead of blog about! Or blog about instead of vlog about. I’m still figuring out what I want to do, but I do like the weekly video check in right now.
Leave me a comment here or on my video on you tube with your answers to my questions about workouts too, I would love to hear from you!!!
It’s been 7ish days so here is my photo update!
|Left on both photos is the older picture if you can’t tell….|
I’m actually pretty shocked. My weight has gone up, I feel like I haven’t lost a thing, I feel BIGGER. So this is also a “this is why we take photos” post too I guess. I was actually sitting here before doing the side by sides thinking that it was time to re-vamp my whole P90x effort or possibly stop P90x and start doing a mostly cardio focus again because it was doing nothing at all for my body and I wasted a whole 3 weeks before figuring that out. I guess it is doing something, I just couldn’t tell.
I will be shooting a video tonight about the challenge and some of these P90x feelings tonight. I have been very busy thinking about what I should do/if I should do/what is RIGHT for me a lot…I’m sure I’ll figure it out soon.
Morning everyone 🙂
Woke up bright and early this morning to get the stats and pictures done before my workout. It was cardio day, which is one of the shorter days, so I had a little extra time 🙂
First up the pictures. So the jeans go on and zip up. But as you can see- they are not ready for prime time yet. Too much muffin in the pan for me and I have too much junk in the trunk for these to leave my house…
