Week 8 Results

I can't believe it has been 8 weeks already. Part of me feels like these first two months have flown by, and then other parts feel like I have been doing this forever already! I am happy to report that I lost 2 pounds this week for a total of 15 pounds! I am trying to decide at what increments I should be rewarded, every 20 pounds, every 25 pounds, and what should that reward be? I would love to hear your, that way I know you are reading :)

As this was the end of October, this Monday was also the day to measure. I wasn't as happy with these results as I was with the pounds for this week. I lost a 1/2 inch of my bust, 1/2 inch off my arm, and 1 1/2 inches of my hips (that one I am excited about!) for a total of 2 1/2 inches (or 3 inches if you count each arm).

Since I took a few days off from posting, I thought I would tell you about last week's random workout. We did the sculpt part of Power 90 which was about 30 minutes. I was a little worried about what the workout might be like since I have heard that p90x is really hard, and this is by the same man. It started out with some great stretching (that remind me of several drill team stretches!) and then went on to work the arms and legs. I really liked it! It did a great job of working out the different muscle groups. It was just challenging enough that there were parts that I felt like I had to push to get through, but not so challenging that it was intimidating. And how do I know it worked? I was pretty sore for the next two days, including my abs from holding them in place during the workout, even though there was no specific ab exercises. I can't vouch for the other parts of the DVD, but the sculpt part might be one of my new favorites!

Below is my food from today. I worked out on the treadmill before work this morning. I tried a new preset workout this morning and it really pushed me. Most of the workout was done at a 7 or 8 incline (that's pretty steep for those of you that don't use treadmills!). Hopefully I can keep up the morning workout trend. I like knowing that I have gotten my workout in for the day before anything else can interfere. Tomorrow is random workout day once again. What will this week be?


  1. You should go shoe shopping as a reward! Don't buy new clothes yet because the pounds keep coming off!

  2. A girl after my own heart! Who doesn't love shoes?!?
