Measurement Monday

Measurements (cm)
Hip: 92 (+1.0)
Waist:72 (-1.0)
Quad: 50.5 (-2.0)
Calf: 33 (+1.0)
Bicep: 26.5 (-1.5)

Total Measurement Change since last week: -2.5 cm

Weight: 141.8 lbs (-1.0 from last time)

I’m not complaining! I’m moving in the right direction… If you want some good motivation, check out Oxygen Mag’s “About You: Future of Fitness” section (towards the end of the magazine). It’s great to get a good idea of just how much women can vary in weight even if they are the exact same height, and all these women look amazing! Definitely look here if you are starting to try and figure out what your realistic ideal is.

As I have said before, I would love to look like this…

But it need to be on my terms, and realistic. I have way too much going on in my life to focus entirely on severe lifestyle changes. And more importantly I want these changes to stick! No backwards momentum over here! This needs to be a fun, but challenging journey. We all have way too much stress in our lives to add more by endlessly critiquing our bodies. The goal is to find that happy balance, where you aren’t going to mug a kid for their candy.

I’m not going to include my workouts just yet. I’m going to start having a separate post for those. So take those measurements and start using them to motivate you through the week. Happy Monday!

Gym Bunny’s Guide to Makeup

If you are anything like me, then the thought of going anywhere without makeup is horrifying. That being said, being the hypocrite that I am, I hate seeing girls at the gym all made up, or with their hair down (but that’s another issue entirely).
On top of that, if you are serious about getting in a good sweat session, if you do where makeup, it’s only going to look 10x worse by the time you are done. But there’s nothing wrong with a little something, especially if looking good is what get’s you motivated… so here are my gym bag essentials.
