*happy dance* What a week! Amazingness:
- I lost 1.4 lbs
- Hit the 15 pounds lost goal I was aiming for (now 15.6 total!)
- Lost TWO inches in my “favorite” places — 1 inch from my waist and 1 inch from my hips!
- Went to the gym TWICE, plus…
- Went to Slimmons for the first time
Though it will probably sound like BS in light of the loss, honestly I went into my weigh in this week prepared to stay the same, only lose a little or even have a slight gain. After two gym sessions in a week (a first for me in a long time), I felt awesome, and that was more valuable than a loss. Buttttttt then everything came together all at once, and about that I cannot complain!
What I was particularly proud of this week was setting the goal of going to the gym twice and sticking to it. I was really good about stretching before and after, and not pushing myself during (give me the right song and I will sprint at a ridiculous, unrealistic pace). Pleasantly surprising: my legs weren’t sore AT ALL! That is a delightful first. (I can’t say the same about my abs, post-Slimmons though XD)
The twice-a-week gym goal was pointedly meant to work on my hips & waist, where I’ve not lost any inches since February. I expected it would take several weeks of work before I saw any results, so the 2 inch loss was a pleasant surprise. I’m going to stick with the routine through June and hope to get my hips back to a point where I’m a true 14 (when I’m not lying to myself, I’m a 16… and was an 18 in January).
