Mid-Week Weigh In

I got on the scale this morning to a pleasant surprise... I lost weight! Yey!! :)

weight: 135lbs
waist: 33.25"
hips: 38" (apparently i've been measuring my butt, not my hips)
butt: 39.5"
chest: 38.75"
arms: 10.75"
thighs: 22.75"

I wasn't able to exercise over the weekend but that's because the boyfie and I went on a day tour that involved a lot of walking, so that's considered exercise too right?

I HAVE to keep this up!! 5 lbs to go before I reach the 120s!!!!!

Day 3: 30 day shred

Day 3 done and done! I'm excited to get all sexy and healthy once the 30 days are up. Of course, I shouldn't stop exercising. I know I'm not going to be stick-thin skinny, besides, that's not what I want. I'm a curvy girl and always will be. I would love to be as sexy as Salma Hayek and Kim Kardashian. They're both petite, curvy girls just like me. I WILL BE THIS SEXY!!

Day 2: 30 day shred

Day 2 was actually harder than the first... maybe it was coz my body was a bit sore. I still did the yoga video after the shred. I'm thinking of downloading more yoga videos so I can alternate when I get bored with one. I actually find yoga harder than the circuit. I keep forgetting all the breathing and stuff.

I'm going to allow myself to weigh in only once a week so must resist scale watching! I have to admit though, seeing that I lost 5 pounds from my first weigh in inspired me. I don't want to be fat anymore. I want to love how I look in my clothes and I'm excited to lose weight. Must keep this attitude up.

So far so good... I can do this!

Day 1: 30 day shred

So today I moved my lazy butt and started the 30 day shred. It wasn't as horrible as I was expecting. Don't get me wrong it is TOUGH but its definitely not impossible. I also kinda liked Jillian's encouragement of telling me that I'm going to have to work at getting those abs I want. She also mentions that she has had 400-pound people do jumping jacks so I can do it too.

Last night I downloaded Yoga Zone - Weight Loss for Beginners which I also ended up doing after the 30 minute killer circuit training. I've always been wanting to get in to yoga but I couldn't afford it so downloading a video and doing it at home should suffice for now. I like the combination of the circuit training and the yoga so I hope I can keep it up!

Hopefully I'll be beach ready for Boracay in October. I CAN DO THIS!

weight: 139 lbs
waist: 33.5in
hips: 40.25in
chest: 39in

I decided not to measure thighs and arms coz I don't think I'm measuring the same place hehe.
