Missed a couple of sessions last week as I was being a bit of a stress head with life. Basically I'm over living in the UK and miss the sunshine and beaches of Australia, especially now that I'm fitter. I want to wear my shorts and t-shirt, and I'm not embarrassed anymore to wear my bathers in public!! The UK weather I find really saps my motivation. We've only had 2 sunny days this year wear I could wear shorts!
My new training plan is going well though and I'm really enjoying mixing it up. Did a really good Upper Body session this morning. So with Body for Life, I've almost got the body I want, now I just need the life. LOL!!! :)
I'm still hanging on! Home stretch now. Great results so far-just gonna have to accept the fact that my 6pack goal is not going to be met by week 12. Oh well, I look and feel a heck of a lot better than I did 9 weeks ago!
Great job surfslacker! Same here, doing great, feeling great. Definitely going to keep going before week 12 (....err 24)
How's it going everybody? Is anybody still going (except jrmcnaircpt-I'm sure he is still going....). I officially started a couple weeks before apr1, so my 12 weeks are done. I'm very happy with the results-no huge transformation like so many on here have had, but I lost 10lbs, am a LOT stronger than I was when I started, and feel great! My pants are more loose, and my shirts more tight. Now that my 12 weeks are over, I am super paranoid that I'm going to lose these results, so I'm going to keep on trucking. Hope everybody's challenge has been a success!
Hi surfslacker, CONGRATULATION's!!!!! I need the inspiration once I am cleared to work out, I hope you will share your before and after photo's! So inspiring!
Congrats to everyone who finished (and kept up the posts!)!!!
Better late than never right? Well, between BFL exercise and eating right and remodeling a house and working I just didn't have the energy to keep up with the blog. But just so everybody knows, I did finish my 2nd challenge. I feel great, I look great and I am starting C3 today! Off to do my 1st workout now! I am actually comfortable and happy in my bathing suit again! My stats are (after 24 weeks):
Total weight lost so far is 15.3 lbs
Over Bust 7″ (yeah. I carried it all under my arms and on my chest and back)
Under Bust 2.5″
Beginning C1 I started in size 14 (or VERY tight 12) and large or extra-large shirts. Now comfortably in a size 10 and medium shirts. Even though the weight lost hasn’t met my goal (yet) my body has changed so dramatically that I am WELL PLEASED. When I look in the mirror I am finally seeing what really could be! I think there was more doubt there than I am willing to admit. I will post before and after pics on my profile page if I can figure it out!
Here’s to the next 12 weeks and as always NEVER NEVER NEVER QUIT.
