A Link to my Progress Pictures

The following link is a place were i like to blog on Sparkpeople. It was a place that I could go to frequently and find people who also were on a journey to improving them self. It is where I went for motivatin and friendship.

I posed some picture of what I looked back in mid-November of 2007, about 20 months after my daughter was born. I weighed about 4 lbs more than I do today. I had more abdmonial fat which makes me look heavier than approximately 105lbs. Interesting to see the difference and I am glad I still had the pictures to show how far I have come.

START PCITURES: Day 1 and Day 2 of Sexy in 70

So I have decided to post some start pictures although keep in mind I have been working hard for months now. I will have to go through some of my old photos and find true start pictures. But for now, here are my progress pictures as of yesterday May 12th.

Stats do not seem to change much, but I will continue to track that along with my weight.

Yesterday I did legs and in co-operated some serious cardio on the treadmill. I did super sets for example of weighted squats and than went straight into jump squats. Did 4 sets of that none stop than jumped on the treadmill and jogged for 3 minutes and than went back to my next pair of 2 exercises which happened to be weighted walking lunges and hack squats -- 4 sets of reps ranging from 10-12 than back on the treadmill for 3 minutes. Quick stretching than did another pair of super sets and than ran, than one last weighted leg sets and finished off with 10 minutes of HIIT. I was sore. Feeling it today as well.

This AM I woke up early as I wanted to get in a strength training workout for biceps and triceps and once again added the interval cardio in between sets. Really way for me to switch it up considering this is my 4th week of doing the same exercises. I also did a circuit challenge for 7 minutes after I was done my 1 hour workout. That was the extra burn I needed. Shower and than breakfast immediately. I am addicted to oatmeal with 1 1/2 scoops of allmax protein. It almost feels like comfort food to me and sometimes I even have the same thing as a meal but I will have 1/4 c of oatmeal instead of 1/2 c and scale down the protein to just 1 scoop. Makes me feel like I am giving myself a treat but it is such a great refuel meal :)

Today is just housework day and catching up with stuff around the house. Monday thru Wednesday I have activities with Madison and programs that it all seems to fall at the waist side. I can keep the place tidy put getting a good cleaning is a Thursday morning thing.

I have some stuff to do to prep for my business. I am looking forward to getting full force into that. Just have to get going and be creative. This will be a good way to get out of my comfort zone. No pressure :)

Note: Close Butt pictures: 33 inches 101.6lbs as of May 12th
Measurments: Chest 32, Waist 23.5, Navel 24.75, Hips 33, Right Thigh 18.75, Left Thigh 18.5

I was checking out a Buff Mother's blog and she has this great contest in progress. Although I amlate tojoin the contest, I am not too late to join in the fun. Sexy in 70 is what I am going to do. What a cool concept right?

I was going through her blogs and looking at how great she looks. And she has had 4 children all via c-section I believe. I mean truly insipiration isn't it? Well i guess if you saw her photos you would think so, so don't be shy goggle her - buffmother and you will see exactly what I am talking about. So sexy in 70 starts for me tomorrow. Hopefully I am feeling better.

Been feeling sick and I took the day off in hopes of feeling better tomorrow. Today was leg day, powerful legs day and I wanted to make sure that I feel better. So today clean eating is on the agenda especially now that my immune system is not 100%.

Let the countdown begin :)
