It’s been a total of two weeks since I made a promise to myself to lose weight. And to keep me honest, I also told you that at the end of a month of eating healthy and doing the Brazil Butt Lift workouts that I would also post my before and after pictures. I have no idea what I was thinking, but I still will keep that promise!
But first, I mentioned last week that the Brazil Butt Lift workouts are not made for uncoordinated people. I am trying to get my feet to follow along with the moves and so I pretty much pay no attention to what my arms are doing. So I’ve also started doing the old school “8 Minute Arms” everyday too. I found it on You Tube and it does the job.
I am still loving the workouts – there are several different ones on 3 DVDs and they are all fun, challenging and keep me interested…I’m not doing the same thing over and over and over. And they are kicking my ass…I’m in Week #3 and I am still sore – it’s a good thing because I know that I’m actually working out and when you see my measurements you will see that it’s making a difference.
And now for an update on my measurements and weight…I couldn’t be happier!
Inches, people! I’m losing inches! I won’t tell you that it’s not frustrating to be eating good and kind-of-sort-of-for-the-most-part-but-not-really staying away from junk food and alcohol and not seeing my weight go down more. Jason keeps reminding me that “muscle weighs more than fat” and that the program is working because I’m losing inches.
Not only that, but my body literally feels different to me. My legs aren’t as jiggly as they were just a few weeks ago. My tummy is definitely firming up and I can actually see some definition. So screw the weight – as long as the inches keep falling off I’ll be good.
As for the cheats, yeah, I’ve been cheating. I’d say I’m making healthier food choices and staying away from junk food. But I’m not totally depriving myself of anything. It won’t work for me. So I’m just being smarter about what I’m putting in my body. And let’s face it, when you are working out and seeing results, the last thing you want to do is mess it all up by pigging out!
Everything in moderation.
So maybe I get french fries occasionally, but they are a small size instead of large. Maybe I eat an ice cream sandwich, but I split it with Ethan. Maybe I ate an In-N-Out Burger Double Double this weekend, but I got it protein style (wrapped in lettuce instead of a bun), with only mustard, grilled onions and one slice of cheese.
Everything in moderation.
So that’s it until next week. Until then, wish me luck!
