Workout Saturday

What a week it has been - emotionally and physically. If you read my last few posts you will see that I've been having a hard time with B gone, but today I am excited to tell you that all that stress has led to a week of great workouts and thus...results!

I have now completed 6 weeks of the 12 week program (or 45 days of 90 days) and I am well on my way to achieving my goals. I can't believe how heavy I am lifting now...using almost all 20-25 lb weights. I actually bicep curl 20lbs! (So cool!) I don't really remember exactly what I weighed last Saturday so I don't know exactly how much weight I've lost this week, but I will tell you that total, I am down 16.0 pounds. Yay! I did measure myself but I am not going to report my inches lost until the end of this second 30 day phase :-)

I am really still loving this Chalean Extreme program and am still very excited to see my end results. My goal is to lose 30lbs in 90 days....sounds like a lot to me, but I think it is pretty doable. I am already over half way there...and I am officially at my pre-baby weight! (like pre-my-first-baby!). I feel so good about myself. :-) I truly must praise the Lord for these results and the drive to continue doing this everyday. All I want to do in the evenings is put the kids to bed and then curl up on the couch (or in the tub!) and relax as I think about, or chat with, my husband. Yet God gives me the strength to change into my workout clothes, slip on my tennis shoes, and push myself harder than ever to lift some serious weights, get my heart rate up, and drip sweat. I give Him all the glory for this success!
