Postpartum Week 17

Hannah is going to be 4 months in 2 days....crazy! Trying to make the most of each day as a mom. Well it's time for a status update on me. I did not post last week because this week was the final week for my challenge with my in-law women. Here's how I did. 

Goal by yesterday: 128 pounds

Last week I weighed 130 right now. Tight situation. Had 2 pounds to go.

But this week I started a new part of my weight program. Remember that change is important. If you want results your workouts have to change every few weeks (intensity, amount of weight, how many reps).

So on Thursday I was at 129. That was also Valentine's day and I was going to be going out to eat. Well, eating enough is important when losing weight. I did not starve myself till dinner. I ate normal and I had fun. 

The next day I stepped on my scale and achieved my goal! 128. Awesome. 
Waist: 31 3/4 (1/2 inch loss)
Hips: 34 3/4 (1/2 inch loss)

Remember that shirt I bought a while ago and couldn't fit into it? 

Remember the start? Week 1. See post HERE

Look now! 

It's ok if progress is slow. I'm in it to be fit and glorify God with my body and the choices I make each day. Such as eating lots of fresh fruit and vegetables. I am eating at least 4-6 servings of fruit a day and about 4 of vegetables. Staying away from processed food and eating good protein intake. I'm eating out rarely and pushing myself each week in workouts.

I'm also giving adequate rest for my body. Every workout shouldn't be full force if you're exercising 5-6 days a week. It's important to have at least one workout be lower intensity to change it up.

Keep up the hard work. Be consistent. It will pay off I promise. You can do it!
