So, I basically decided to stop logging my activities and calories here and on my iPhone edibles app. I've been working out 5-6 days a week for at least 30 minutes a day for about 6 weeks now. It's hard to know what kind of progress I've actually made because I didn't do any pre-measurements or weights or anything. I did go to the Dr. a month before I started all this and weighed in at 136lbs. Which for the record is 6lbs above my ideal body weight (IBW). My progress so far has been great, I have more energy than I've had in a long time, and I feel wonderful. The only physical change I've noticed so far is that the narrowest part of my waist has shrunk slightly, otherwise no real remarkable changes. I've been doing a combination of my Dance off the inches hip hop video, my Carmen Electra striptease video, my belly dance fat burn video, and a combination of eliptical, recumbent bike, and treadmill (fast walking around 4.5 mph) for cardio. Also, the videos encompass some sculpting moves as well. Plus a wide array of free weight, toning, conditioning exercises.
Well, as swimsuit season approaches I decided I want to get a little more serious about seeing results. I had Richard buy a scale last night, I weigh 131 lbs. Today I did day one of my Fitness Magazine Bikini Body workout, about 25 minutes of cardio interval conditioning. They claim 3 days a week for 4 weeks to an improved bikini body, so we'll see! I took some measurements and pictures in my bikini so we can see in four weeks if there are any results.
Narrowest Point (under rib cage)=28.5"
Hips (love handles)=35.5"
Middle Bicep (not flexed)=12.25"
Thigh (jiggly inner area)=22"
% Body Fat=24%
See ya in a month!
