Week 4 - Fitness update!

Hi all!! I'm starting week 3 today of Transform 20 and I'm so excited! 

This program is broken up into chapters, 2 weeks to each chapter and I graduated to chapter 2 this past Saturday.  I felt so accomplished when I finished on Saturday.  There were so many days this past week where I wanted to just stay in bed, skip a day but I made myself get up and pressed play!

On Sundays, I run since its a rest day from Transform 20.  Hubby joins me for this every Sunday.



Now the week begins....


Every morning this week I have felt so bloated - not sure what is going on or where I'm messing up with my nutrition.


20 minutes, but you really get a great workout!


Guys, this makes me soooooo happy!!
This little sticker means I won in the battle against my own mind.
2 weeks, 6 days each week done!



I started with major struggles.  I couldn't do 1 pushup or tricep dip but I finished with doing around 4-6  or each!  I still struggle!  I can't do all of the moves, and its hard to keep moving through the burn, but I do my best.  I slow down when I need to, but keep moving until I'm finished.

The transformer tracker is wonderful.  Here I can see how I progress each week.


I went up in my numbers almost every day.  Thursday was a struggle - this was the one day when I really needed to argue with myself and make myself work out.  I almost didn't.
I got out of bed after 6AM - when I have to be up before 5:30AM.
I was going to take a rest day and just workout Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
But then I realized this would just mess me up for the new week, and it was 6:30, the workout will be done in 20 - so I did it.
I felt week, but at least I had the same number as the week before.
At least I worked out!
That is what counts!


Here are my weight and measurements:

Measurements from 1/4:
Weight 193
Chest: 36"
Left Arm: 12.75"
Right Arm: 12.75"
Waist: 39"
Hips: 48"
Left thigh: 27.5"
Right Thigh: 28"

Measurements from 1/27:
Weight 193
Chest: 42.5"  ( I measured wrong on 1/4)
Left Arm: 13 1/4"
Right Arm: 13"
Waist: 39"
Hips: 46 1/4"
Left thigh: 26 3/4"
Right thigh: 27"
Left calf: 15 1/2"
Right calf: 15 1/4"




So no major changes, but did lose an inch or so in my lower body.  Now I have to figure out what I need to change in my eating habits to start seeing the scale number drop and the inches in my waist go down.  

I feel like I've followed my nutrition fairly well, except for my morning coffee.
My solution?  I'm cutting out my coffee creamer this week.  I'll be having black coffee only so let's see if this makes a difference!
