Benny took my monthly measurements this week. I've lost .5 inches off my hips and 2.5 inches off my waist this past month! Since starting the measurements in May I've lost a total of:
3.5 inches off my hips
1 inch off my arms
3.5 inches off my waist
4.5 inches off my bust
.5 inches off my thighs
I received my Tai Cheng shirt in the mail this week from logging my results. It feels like a lighter weight material than normal t-shirts yet the tag says it's 100% Cotton. Perhaps because it's Ringspun that's what makes it different.
This week Benny said my stomach looked smaller. Of course I can't see the difference even looking in the mirror. I can only see my shrinkage by the way clothes fit on me. How long does it take before your eyes and brain make the connection that you do look different?
Weird pains/pressure appeared Thursday afternoon while sitting at my desk at work. It stayed more towards my right side where I've had a history of pain. Perhaps it just wanted a final goodbye and just made a big deal out of it.
This crazy weather we're having brought on one of my sinus headaches. For a brief spell Excedrin Sinus Headache was the only thing that took care of these. I haven't seen these pills in the stores for several years so I just have to suffer through the pain until it passes.
Start It Up! was easier this second week. I could've used 5 lb weights instead of 3 lbs as the resistance portion seemed too easy this time around. Having the resistance band that comes with probably would feel like more of a challenge too. I do the bicep curls a lot faster than they are on the DVD and am not feeling my muscles working.
I never took a sneak peak at Ramp It Up! so I don't know what's in store for me the next two weeks. I'm sure I'll work some new area and be sore the first few days but it's all worth it.
