Another week has come and gone. Hard to imagine I have made it though WEEK 3 of Focus T25. I will (obviously) be talking about my thoughts of week three on Wednesday, but I do have some exciting news to share, so I thought I would post my updated stats! To know how far we have come, we have to remember where we have been…so here are last weeks stats
Weight: 252 pounds
Bust: 46.5 inches
Waist: 47.25 inches
Arm: 17.5 inches
Thigh: 27.25 inches
Weight: 247 pounds
Bust: 45.75 inches
Waist: 46.5 inches
Arm: 16.5 inches
Thigh: 28.5 inches
Weight: -5 pounds (HELL YEAH!!!)
Bust: -.75 inches
Waist: -.75 inches
Arm: -1 inch (goodbye wings!!)
Thigh: +.75 inches (I was told this has to be muscle….we will see)
I am SO PLEASED with the results from last week to this week. I think it is definitely a testament to Shaun T and Beachbody. My workout buddy also lost 5 inches total from the past three weeks, so this is definitely worth all of the hard work. I am so blessed to have such a great friend to do this with as well. She’s amazing and I definitely would not be doing as well if I did not have someone to come and push me to do workouts even when I don’t want to. I am looking forward to see what I will continue to lose in the coming weeks on the program.
Today was such a great day. As ya’ll may or may not know, I recently purchased a house in June (which was the contributor to some weight gain). The house was beautiful when we purchased it, but we are slowly adding some things that we want to do. I’ve noticed that since we bought the house, gotten the puppy, and I’ve started working out and taking care of me more, I have been so much more productive, which translates into also being more active. I am glad my new life incorporates more activity. Today we went to Home Depot and purchased a storm door for our front door so we can keep the windows open and have the option to let in some fresh air. We have some amazing friends (one of which happens to be my supervisor) who are teaching us how to be handy around the house. After we did that, I mowed the lawn. Oddly, I find this relaxing. I turn on my iPod, put my earbuds in, and go to town. We have also neglected our flower bed out front, so I was able to work in that a little bit today. My better half purchased some weed killer, and I trimmed two bushes that are in the front. I wish I had taken before pictures, because the bushes were really bad. They look better now. It was my first time trimming bushes, so I will have to see what other people think in order to find out if I did a good job or not.
Onto my goals for the week…
I was reading someone else’s blog (sadly I do not remember the name of the blog), but they called their goals “target practice” as we always aim for the mark, but sometimes we miss (and that’s okay). I really enjoy this mentality, especially because I am bad at making goals. So, here is my “target practice” for the upcoming week.
- Wear my body media armband while working out. Sound familiar? That’s because I haven’t done it yet, but recognize I really need to. When I am done writing this blog, I am going to get my device out of my nightstand and charge it. Luckily, my computer is in the same room in which I work out, so I will see it tomorrow when I go to put my DVD in. This way I cannot miss it.
- Log my foods. Same story as above…something I recognize I need to do, but have not done it yet. I am not sure why either. I eat relatively healthy, so it is not that I am trying to avoid things. I think it is a time thing, especially because I make my own food. It is a pain to add everything up and such. However, I know this will tell a lot about my weight loss success, and I need to do it. It’s just something I have to do.
- Ride my bike at least 2 times this week. Long story short, my better half had foot surgery a while ago, and it still hurts. While we are not up to doing T35, my better half thought about riding a bike as a form of exercise. So…we bought bikes. They are really nice ones too!! My better half has been out riding once (in the last week and a half) and I have been none. This is something I really want to do though, and I need to make time to do it. We have plans to go for a ride tomorrow, so fingers crossed!!
Here is to another amazing week!! Be sure to let me know what an amazing week you have had! I’m sure we have all had successes in one form or another, and ALL successes should be celebrated!!
