Measurement Day, Day 22 #100Days

Not only did I not post for Week 3 Day 15, I didn’t grab a screenshot.

Oh well.

Day 15 saw a drops in my hips (-3″), abdomen (-1), left arm and right arms (-0.75), and left and right calves (-0.25). The weight is pointless because I don’t have a scale that’s consistent.

We also had some heavy snowfall, so I focused more on my abs and flexibility (in the apartment on a mat) with my Nike Training Club app

January Strength Training Week 2

 

Then we had the Super Bowl and more snow, and a later shift for a week really threw a kink in staying motivated but I managed a few days running. The rest were strength training.

I’m not crazy about the results for Measurement Day 22, but I knew going in not every week was going to be a winner. The belly is going to be my biggest struggle, and I’m not sure the best way to tackle it yet.

I’m still trending in the right direction, and in the interest of Full Disclosure, I’m 5 days from my Moon (to put it delicately), so I’m taking on water like the Titanic.

By the way, that Shawn Johnson stretch on the N+TC is no joke. Throw in the Jeanette Jenkins Ab Blaster, and they both tried to kill me. I do the Stretch every day, because I really want the flexibility. The Jenkins Ab Blaster work was a unlocked bonus I tried and found I could actually finish. This isn’t to say it’s easy, because it’s not at all, but if I don’t challenge myself, the inches won’t come off.

Clothes look better, shoes don’t look like torture devices, and I look forward to working out.  The runs are getting easier with more running and less walking. I bought myself a new high density mat for the floor, and that makes such a difference on my knees, the floor work now feels like it’s the working the areas it’s supposed to.

I hate the learning curve of workouts, because it takes a few weeks to get into a rhythm of the moves and how they’re supposed to be performed. Conditioning for the conditioning as it were.

Regardless, it’s working. I can’t complain about how I get there, so long as I arrive, right?

Hello, Week 4.
