Day 8 P90X.....

This is the start of week 2! I love this workout for one very important reason.. I am not bored! I start exorcise routines but usually after a week I am bored out of my mind doing the same stuff over and over again. This workout has you doing something different everyday... and just when you might start getting bored, they switch it around on you!

My waist is shrinking.. or at least I feel like it is. I just feel tighter. My skin is losing its bumps and red spots (especially on the arms!) and my face is slimming down. I even had to buy a smaller bra size! YIKES!

I know this has all been slowly happening over the past 6 months.. but I needed to show myself that this is really working! I have doubts every once in a while.. but then I put on a pair of pants that didn't fit last year, or a shirt that was too tight but now fits beautifully... or I have to go buy smaller bra! (can you tell I am a little excited about that one!) and it gives me the push to keep going.

I have another motivation to add to my list. My best friend JJ has asked me to be a bridesmaid.. I am so honored. She and I have been friends since high school. Her fiance is a wonderful man and they are the best looking couple! Their wedding is February 7th, 2009... so I have plenty of time to look good for that walk down the isle! (which is kinda funny since I never got to walk down the isle, I just walked up to the Judge in the court house with baby on my hip!!) I was invited to go shopping with her and her Maid of Honor (no hard feelings!) for the dress sometime this summer. I am just looking forward to having a day full of laughter and friends!

Today's Plan:

60 Core Synergistics
walk, walk, walk
90 min Tang Soo Do

Focus: Calories, Water, Vitamins

Yesterday I managed to get in all 6 miles. I had to do 4.5 of them in one stretch.

See you tomorrow! Walk-On

I bought a smaller bra the other day, too! I can't decide how I feel about that.....I think mostly good!
4.5 miles in one stretch?! You are an inspiration, girl!! :)

TL you are doing soooo well! I read your journal all the time and I dont think I have come across anyone so motivated for ages! Good on you! It feels great to go down sizes doesnt it? Congrats on being asked to be a bridesmaid! xxx

You're doing just a fab job, Tigerlilly! Awesome, awesome! I know what you mean by the whole feeling of not totally believing you're losing weight/reshaping your body until the "clothes" test! Congrats on the bridesmaid honor! I, too, walked up to a judge (sans baby, though) just almost exactly 14 years ago... Have fun with all that :~)

Buying a smaller size bra is AWESOME! All the cute ones are for tiny boobies anyway! I can't wait to move out of the grandma bra section!
I actually saw NUNS browsing the bra section where I have to shop at Walmart, if that tells you anything...

P.O.M. said...

Yeah. More motivation is great. You are really staying on track!
