If you follow me on twitter or instagram then you’ve already read these results, but it’s worth elaborating. April was a challenge for me.
This past Saturday marked exactly 3 months to the day I began this new fitness journey. In those 3 months I’ve lost 16.5 pounds and a total (whole body cumulative) of 21 inches. It’s un-freaking-believable. If you’re just looking at total number of pounds, it’s really not that much over this length of time. Back in the day when I would calorie restrict and go nutso on cardio I’d drop weight a lot faster. But, as I’ve said all along, I’m trying to do it right this time. Long term. Lifestyle change. No more yo-yo.
I really can’t get over the inches. Yes, even that has slowed down this last month, but it’s still changing. Muscle is my new drug. And it is very addicting.
Admittedly, April was hard for me. I had some traveling and I kinda put myself in cruise control far too many days. I’ve set some attainable goals for May and I’m kind of excited to see what changes they bring in my 4-month update. I’m ready to push myself again and be one step closer to that sexy summer confident body.
I’m ready to get stronger physically, mentally, and most of all emotionally. Even as I write these great numbers I’m really struggling emotionally with some nasties right now. I’m ready to work those things out too.
Work in progress is a good thing, on all fronts. Who knows what the finished product will be?!
