Since I am trying not to focus on the scale as my only measure of progress I took my measurements. This week Thursday was 4 weeks from the first measurements I took on 8/19. My results? A total of 11.5" lost! I am so excited to see these numbers. The biggest change was in my stomach, with 5" lost. I can tell a difference in how I look, feel and how my clothes fit. I am starting to see some muscle definition, but I need to work on my nutrition to add more muscle. How do you measure progress? What are your goals?
On to my week 7 in review. I feel good about the weights I am doing, I need to add a few more HIIT sessions in next week. I think with eating more of the right things I should be able to accomplish this. As far as my nutrition for the week, I did really well. I had food prepared and had salad the few times I ate out. We did order pizza, so I did have that this week too. This week, if I do have pizza again, I need to work it in to my macros!
Monday: Chest & arms
Wednesday: back & shoulders, added sprints in between circuits
Friday: LegsSaturday: upper body circuits
Sunday: walk with Ariana in the stroller
My week 8 goals are focusing on getting my macros right and getting all my weight lifting sessions in. I am working on setting up my meals so I know what I need when, I feel that this is going to help a ton with my energy levels during workouts and my ability to add more muscle. I also want to add 2 HIIT sessions this week and will fit them into my non-lifting days.
