i feel like i worked really hard this month. i am nearly done with my squat challenge from my february goals. (there are only 28 days in february and i missed a couple of days that i need to make up.) i am nearly done with “slim for life” by jillain michaels. i learned a ton from that book! it kept me energized throughout the month.
but i’m also realistic about my results. i know there’s not going to be a lot of changes in the numbers. i am starting to tone up around my stomach, and my legs are tightening up. however, i’m still pretty soft around my middle and my clothes are still fitting a little tight. but let’s just see if there was any progress…
here’s my measurements from march 1st:
here are the changes in inches from february to march:
- chest = 0
- bust = -1
- waist = 0
- arms = +.5
- midway = +1
- hips = 0
- thighs = -.5
- knees = -1
overall, i’m okay with my progress. i know i worked hard in february even if there wasn’t a ton of inches or pounds lost. and it’s that time of the month. maybe that has something to do with my midsection being a little more pudgy than normal. anyway…i’m still moving forward and feeling better every day. that’s what matters the most.
1. i’m continuing with my inches goal from january and february. i would like to lose an inch all over, especially around my midsection.
2. complete a jillian challenge over spring break. i have pre-ordered this dvd off amazon. if i don’t get it in time to start at the beginning of spring break, i will do “hard body” and other jillian workouts until i do receive it.
3. try a plank challenge. i had some bad results when i tried a plank challenge last summer because as the time increased, my form suffered and i didn’t realize it until it was too late. i tried too much too soon and my wrist is still store most days because of it. so i’m going to try again but with elbow planks and a little less intensity this time.
3. keep focused on my personal mantra daily. (if you’re interested in why and how i choose this personal mantra, check out this post)
4. remember this quote…
