Trina @ MeSoHongry has started a fabulous thing with TOOT TOOT TUESDAYS! Click on the link for details, and hopefully you all will participate!
As you know, I haven't been the best example of weight loss for the last few weeks. Although that IS currently changing! However, it doesn't negate the fact that I do have some accomplishments and things to toot about! I started off the year wearing a TIGHTTTTT size 14 and size large everything. Some XL. But recently I went shopping and bought some clothes...check em out!
Pardon the wrinkles...they were in the car for a while as I ran other errands. I spent so little on these clothes its ridiculous. BUT THE IMPORTANT THING IS CHECK THE SIZES!!!!!!!
This is my first pair of shorts (other than those short style capris) since elementary school. Yes....elementary. I've always been self-conscious about the way my thighs looked in shorts. So I've opted for sundresses, skirts and capris. However even though I am not at my goal of a size 6 or 8, my thighs are considerably tighter and more toned than I ever remember them being in my entire life! And....I look great in these shorts! Throw on a pair of heels and watch out boysssss!!!! lol. Isn't it great when shopping is FUN again?!
In addition to my "feel good" shopping....I've had some exercise progress as well. At the start of the year, I could not run up a set of stairs, I got winded just walking briskly on the treadmill, could barely do a set of ten push-ups "girly" style and now....
- I've run for over 3 minutes at speed of 5.0
- I walk briskly at an incline of at least 8.0+
- I can do 15 "man" style push-ups
