Measurements Week 3 of 6: Bust: 46.5”, Hips: 46”, Hips: 47.5”
Good morning my darlings and welcome to another Friday. It is once again time to take stock. The measurements haven’t really changed much since last week. there is half an inch less on my bust. But quite frankly i am not sure how fast I am supposed to lose inches. Which is sort of why I chose the measurements over pounds for this six weeks.
I didn’t want to get discouraged if I didn’t see the weight come off quickly and I have no idea what to expect from measurements. So by taking the measurements I have the requirement of measuring myself each week so I feel like i have to stick with the plan, yet because there are no set expectations, the number changes aren’t influencing how i feel about my week.
You know what is influencing how I feel about my week and the fitness? My body. That’s right, I am actually listening to how I feel. What a concept.
I have to say, I actually feel pretty good about what I did this week. I kind of ache all over, but I feel good about it. This week I decided to add one more set of reps to my workouts this week. At the moment the thighs from Wednesday wore the worst. Admittedly that may be because it isn’t until this afternoon that I add in the arms along with the extra set. My work outs are split out by days, Monday is abs, Wednesday is legs and Friday are arms. My abs took the extra set with no problems. My legs had no issues doing the extra set and I was fine until Thursday morning when the front of my thighs started thinking nasty thoughts about my workout plan. They are still a little achy this morning, but they are easing into it. I fully expect that my arms will protest a little during the work out and then Saturday I will wake up with achy yet limp noodle arms. My arms seem to need the most recovery time as well so at least they have a three day weekend.
Because Monday I am taking off from the gym. I am actually taking off from everything actually. There will be no Gym and there will be no Monday Posts. I am taking Memorial Day weekend completely off. Okay there will be some gardening work done over the weekend, but that’s about it. Everything else will wait becasuse sometimes, you just need a weekend off.
But before I take my weekend off. The current progress:
Starting Measurements: Bust: 49.5“ Waist: 47“ Hips: 49”
Week 1: Bust: 48”, Waist: 47”, Hips: 48.5”
Week 2: Bust 47”, Waist: 46”, Hips: 47.5”
Week 3: Bust: 46.5”, Hips: 46”, Hips: 47.5”
Not much change but I do feel good and right now, feeling good and getting healthy are the two top priorities. I made it to all of my workouts this week and managed to to find a time for my walks when I wasn’t half sweated to death. Over all, not a bad week.
And the Memorial Day Sales notices continue…
