I’ll try to remember to take a new picture of myself to compare to the last ‘update’ picture i took back in November. I did this back in January, when i didnt loose but 2 lbs in 2 months, but the difference was still there.
I’m interested to see what difference there is now 🙂 For sure though, i am dropping pant size! I’m already 2 pant sizes smaller than the biggest pant size i ever had to wear. I just bought some new pants about 3 weeks ago and those are already getting loose too!
Well hello there WordPress world! Its been a while since my last post. Since the holidays its been busy and went thru a bit of a lull with my workouts and diet. Getting sick with the flu a couple times didnt help that either, haha.
But anyways, the last month and a half or so i’ve been back on track with working out, and my diet is coming along. One thing that has been holding me back still is that i get horrible heartburn. Like…lasting 6-12 hours heartburn. The last week it hasnt been nearly as bad, just like annoying indigestion, but it still throws me off my game. Basically i just need to watch what i eat, but it still varies day by day. One day i can have rice with brocolli and chicken and be fine…but then the next day if i have the same thing it’ll make my stomach angry. Thats a good way to put it…angry stomach syndrome, haha!
I had a good workout tonight though. Usually i dont workout on Monday’s, its my normal grocery shopping day. But i have some frozen meals in the freezer still so i dont have to worry about that until later this week. But regardless…my abs are already feeling sore, definitely worked those out pretty hard today. Legs too, my hamstrings are getting sore too. I had my protein shake, but didnt go in the sauna as its raining here in Norcal and the mix of a small hot room and cold wet rain once outside would not feel to happy.
Anyways…just wanted to give a little bit of an update. As far as my weight and measurements go, i’ve lost another 4 lbs since the end of January, i’ve lost a total of 9 inches off my waist, and i can not only feel myself getting stronger, but i can see the physical changes/results from my hard work and that is further motivating me.
Until next time (which should hopefully be alot sooner than this post from my last post in November!) ttyl!
P.S. I thank my boyfriend, Hernan, for keeping on reminding me these last few weeks to update my blog. Without you i wouldnt have the courage and motivation to work on myself or to write about it. ❤ Love you baby, forever and always.
This last week has been pretty good. Got in 3 workouts with my trainer this week since we had to miss a workout the week prior. Had a bit of a ‘am i getting sick’ scare, so spent 2 days drinking tea, alot of water, taking coldeeze so i could ward off any potential flu/cold that may have been trying to incapacitate me. Luckily it seems i won that fight 🙂
Workouts this week went pretty good. Tuesday we had to cut short due to me overheating and we were thinking i might’ve been getting sick. But for what i did do on that workout, i was in total beast mode! lol. I was really upset not being able to finish the full hour, but a half an hour of tearing it up is nothing to shake a stick at either. My next workouts were on Thursday and Friday. Thursday was leg day….i am STILL feeling the soreness a full 4 days later. But what can i say, i do love leg day 🙂 Friday was back and arms, which was a very good workout as well. Took a good steady pace. I can feel myself progressing. Weights are being increased. Intensity is being increased. But none of it will matter unless i put my mind into it. Which seems to be my biggest holdback now.
I know that i can physically do my workouts…but when i just drop like a fly, its because my mind gives up. I really am working damn hard to get in to that focused frame of mind to where i just dont even think…i just do. I have moments of that intense focus, but i cant seem to harness it yet. So for me, at this point, that is my biggest challenge.
This week i’ll be back on with my 2 trainer workouts on tuesday and thursday. And at least one other workout on my own…but i really want to increase my workouts to 4 total days a week. 2 trainer days, 2 personal days. Gosh, am i really getting addicted to this? I think i am 😉 but it is the best kind of addiction though. And i dont plan on ever giving it up.
