Slowly but surely gang! Maybe my scale isn't moving, and maybe I didn't have a stellar exercise week last week (I didn't get in the lengthier workouts I was aiming for, just a couple of shorties), but the measurements don't lie! What a great way to start the day!

This week my goal is to add variety to my workouts. As we know I am doing lots of cardio, but have only just started adding in some strengthening with ab work. I want to try to incorporate a variety of exercises this week and focus on strengthening.


  1. So glad that you are doing so well. I am going to be measuring myself this evening for THE VERY FIRST TIME. I have been at my workout routine and healthier eating and water drinking regimen for 7 weeks now. I have lost 12 pounds. Now, I want to see whats going on with my workouts. I am loving watching and listening to you as you go!!!!

  2. Way to go!!!! That is impressive. My new running shoes came in the mail today. Maybe eventually I'll be up to running. Could you stop in an look at my fitness goals and give me your honest opinion? I don't know if it's too much too soon. I figure I'll play it by ear, but an outside opinion is sometimes helpful. Congratulations again!

  3. @ Charissee: How did it go???

    @ Em: I love new work out clothes and shoes-they are motivating! I've been looking at your blog. I will message you there!

  4. Thanks. I try to check daily for comments, because who doesn't love comments?!?! I usually only post on Fridays.

  5. My measurements went fine. I posted them here in this blog : but since they are my first time measuring I have nothing to compare to. At last weigh I have lost 15 pounds since June 15 which I am totally impressed with. I have had a bad week with some emotional baggage and cramping and just all around blahs and did not workout last week. I wanted to, I just didn't make myself do it. I can tell a difference this week, though. I feel blah. SO, I will be getting back to it tonight. I can not wait. I am super excited for it.
