Wish I could wear this all day. However it could make working out a little difficult. ðŸ˜‹New workout. I did Ruthless Lunatic Intervals. It's only 20 mins but it was a challenging 20 mins.On my walk home from the store I saw a turtle ðŸ’œNot a bad day. Didn't eat all my cals today to make up for over eating yesterday and to make room for pizza tomorrow.is posting a " progress " pic. Today's Spark Coach community task was to take a progress picture and post it to my spark page.EAS AdvantEdge Milk Chocolate and Vanilla protein powders came in the mail today. Can't wait to try them.I wasn't able to avoid loose skin. It could be worse though and I might get surgery to remove it.Trying to make the best of my free crew meal. Side salad + grilled chicken + artisan vinaigrette I'm so happy. I started Strnglifts 5x5 up again. I was able to increase my OHP from 45 lbs on Monday to 50 lbs on Friday. OHP is my weakest lift typically.2nd week of Stronglifts 5x5.
Squat = 80 lbs
Bench = 55 lbs
Row = 60 lbs
I overindulged yesterday while celebrating my SO's birthday. Back on track today.Leaving the gym. Another great workout with no failed lifts. I did Stronglifts 5x5 and some assistance work. My main lifts:
Squat = 85 lbs
OHP = 55 lbs (ðŸŽ‰ðŸŽ‰ðŸ˜²ðŸ˜†)
Deadlift = 115 lbs
I'm super happy about my lifts. I think 60 lbs might be were I startWoohoo!! I managed to make it to the gym for my 3rd week of Stronglifts 5x5. I also deadlifted 125 lbs today. ðŸ˜‹ Super proud of myself.I can't wait to try this out. Looks cool and hopefully it might be a bit more accurate than my scale which tells me I'm 35% bf. 😕#FlashbackThursday
Today's flashback pic is from Dec 25, 2011. It was the first time I was able to hold my baby boy (who now has a younger brother).#DailyBurn's #LivetoFail Shoulders & Shield 2 (shoulders and abs)
My shoulders are on fire. Love it. Avg HR of 136 bpm.
Next up: Minimum 20 mins Just Dance 2016Since my activity tracker doesn't sync with spark, I have set my activity level to Active and I log exercise. Screenshot is of my steps just before I got off work. Do you think I have the right activity level selected?Today was leg day. #DailyBurn #LivetoFail Pillars of Strength 2
My legs are like jello and I think I must look hilarious when I walk (probably don't, but it sure feels like I would).
So I have had this skirt forever, but don't really wear it anymore (used to wear it all the time in high school...graduated in 2008). Thought it was perfect to use for some leg pics after my workout.When the scale becomes a liar
(6 weeks 4 days apart....no weight change and scale claims 33% bf)Sometimes you have to look back to where you started to appreciate where you are now.Powers out. ☹ Well that ruins my cardio plans (20 mins Just Dance).
Might have to try tethering my laptop to my phone and doing a daily burn cardio workout.Not to bad. Probably going to eat a slice or 2 of deli meat to get my protein up to a min 100 g.💪New swim wear. 😄 Not the greatest pic. I will take some full body pics next week. Hoping to have a bit more definition by the time we go to the water park or pool this year (Late July/Early August).😜 Lots of steps. As you can see from 7 am-2pm I'm pretty active. Then I get a bit lazy when I get home until my workouts (49 mins strength barely shows on graph due to lack of steps) and then I am lazy again.I just got out of work. Busy day.Well my day is done. Time for bed.My fitness planner/log. I retained a lot of water last week and even though my shark week started, I can see the water retention falling off. 2.6 lbs of water lost since Monday💧💧💧. Hoping next week to see 0.5 - 1 lb of fat loss. 😆
Need to work on my water intake. I think a start will be limiting soda to while I'm at work only. At home only water from the tap or flavored sparkling if I want some carbonation.New workout tank.
I'm definitely surprised by how loose it is. Either walmart is really bad about vanity sizing or I am smaller than I perceive myself to be. I expected it to be a little tight since I've gained about 10 lbs with 1.5" waist increase since I started buying size "small" clothes.Took a 2.14 mile walk today. Saw a fox (I think).Full body pics of my new swimsuit. Going to start up Strong Curves (again) and plan to use these for my progress pics.Was a little lazy after work, but did get 45 mins of Strength training in. All things considered it wasn't a bad day.#transformationTuesdayNot a bad day.So my SO bought both the Fitbit Flex 2 and the Misfit Ray for me for Mother's Day. He bought both because Misfit is a lesser known brand. He wants me to compare the 2 for a few days and decide which I like best 😄❤Should I give the Misfit Ray another day?
I'm thinking not. I just got off work and these are the step counts from the 3 devices.
Top = Samsung Health (phone in back pocket)
Bottom Right = Misfit Ray (left wrist)
Bottom Left = Fitbit Flex 2 (left wrist)I might need to up my goals on fitbit. 😜Not a bad day. I actually managed to stay within goal for the day.123-124 lbs vs 132.2 lbs
March 6, 2016 vs May 13, 2017
I've been bummed about my slight regain. Looking at these pics though, I think I might have done a mini bulk. What do you think?So it's not letting me edit the picture I posted a little bit ago, but I took a new set and propped my phone up further to try and get a similar angle.
So again this is:
123-124 lbs vs 132.2 lbsPlans for Mother's Day: A trip to the Zoo with Grandma (My mom) and a picnic.#Fitbit
I could use a few friends to compete with.

Skulpt Chisel average BF% for the past 7 days is 24.8%.Update: My it wasn't my oblique at all. My KID went through the wall of my uterus last night and is freely moving around my abdomen. It is the reason behind my pain and I will have to have surgery next week. 😣Surgery went well. Mirena is out and I was sent home a few hours after surgery. It had moved since they did the cat scan. Instead of being by my hip it had moved and adhered to the back side of my uterus (outside uterus). However even with the adhesion, my gynecologist was able to get it out with laparoscopy and didn't have to make any bigger incisions to get it.I have officially decided on my next goal. I want to help people achieve their goals. To do this I have started studying to be a personal trainer and studying nutrition as well. I'm starting with Action and then plan to do NCSF. After that I will probably get ACE (PT and Nutrition).My first textbook arrived today. 😄Today's lunch. What do you think?Food for work 😍

I have been having issues with my Fitbit Ionic’s smart watch features and their customer support response has been to just reset it. However after spending $300 on it I don’t think I should have to reset it every 2-3 weeks. Today I picked up my new Apple Watch from UPS and I am seeing how it’s fitness tracking compares. So far I am pretty pleased.Posted a photoToday’s workout was Jillian Michaels - Gauntlet Day 1 and 11 mins body weight training from another app.532 of 500 calories

Took a couple days off from exercise and logging for the Holidays. I regret nothing. 😆😜 Lots of yummy food and very little sleep. However even with that I am only seeing a minor 1.6lb increase on the scale (water weight). Back to my normal routine today. Trying an exercise program that is more strength based for the next 90 days ✌🏻. I actually tend to like strength based programs better than cardio.I’d say today was a good day. It’s 9:53 pm and I am at:
Move = 862/500 calories
Exercise = 79/30 mins
Stand = 13/12 hours
I will still be up for another 2 hours at least so I will likely see my move and stand stats increase further. 💃🏼Morning workout today. Jillian Michaels BodyShred - Fire Up 🔥
I am also planning on a walk a little later today when it warms up a bit.
Now to drink my protein coffee (kind of has the same consistency as a frappe from McDonald’s). 😋 244 calories with 29 grams of protein.

I don’t get DOMS very often, but after finishing out this first week of X-TrainFit Personal Trainer I am definitely sore. It snuck up on me. 😂 Tomorrow is a recovery day.

Today’s workout was a short walk around the lake when I took my kids to the park, 20 mins Just Dance, 30 Day Arm Challenge Day 3, and Ab Blaster from Workout for Women app.

In 2016 I hit a low weight of 120lbs and I was thrilled to have lost so much weight, but disappointed in the lack of muscle I had. I have been working to add muscle since then. I am really happy with what I am seeing with my small cut. My waist is almost the same size now despite being 17lbs heavier.💪🏻Today’s workout was 21 Day Fix: Total Body Cardio Fix, 30 Day Arm Challenge Day 6, 30 Day Butt Challenge Day 1 and 23 mins Just Dance.
I mistakenly took yesterday as a rest day. Not sure why I thought it was. I did a little thinking over my workouts and decided I needed to change it up. While I love strength training, I’m not found of the X-Trainfit Personal Trainer workouts. I don’t look forward to them and it’s just not fun for me.Today’s workout was 21 Day Fix: Upper Fix, 30 Day Arm Challenge Day 7, and 30 Day Butt Challenge Day 2.

I originally planned to do my Pilates workout yesterday, but it didn’t happen. I had a surprise visit from my Mom and my younger brother to celebrate my 29th birthday. I decided to add it to today since it was just a cardio day. I might just be a tad insane, but I didn’t die. 🤣🤪💪🏻Today’s workout was 21 Day Fix: Dirty 30, 30 Day Arm Challenge Day 18, 30 Day Butt Challenge Day 13, and Keep Training: Intermediate Fat Loss Workout.
Definitely a tad bloated today. Can I blame it on too much sodium on my birthday? I know that was Saturday, but it seems like a valid reason...right?🤔😂 No. 🤭 Darn it. Oh well I’m okay with it. There are several things that could be causing it and it’s only temporary after all.Today’s workout was 21 Day Fix: Yoga Fix, 30 Day Arm Challenge Day 19, 30 Day Butt Challenge Day 14, and Keep Training: Intermediate Abs Workout.

This mornings workout was 21 Day Fix: Total Body Cardio Fix, 30 Day Arm Challenge Day 20, and 30 Day Butt Challenge Day 15. All done before the sun came up.

Going to try and complete Valley Loop Challenge today (30k steps). We shall see how the day goes. For now though, I need a little rest. My eyes don’t want to stay open (still trying to adjust to waking up at 4 am).😴Well workout 2 is complete. I am a little short on the steps needed to complete the Valley Loop Challenge, but I am still proud of what I did get in.Day 2 of Doubles week

Workout 1 was 21 Day Fix: Cardio Fix, 30 Day Arm Challenge Day 24, and 30 Day Butt Challenge Day 19.

Workout 2 was 21 Day Fix: Upper Fix.
I was trying to smile and look happy, but the way it came out I look slightly insane. 😂🤣
I am super happy that I was able to do some of the hammer curls with 15lb dumbbells. It was only a set, but still it’s a 5lb increase from last time and I did what I could with good form.Day 6 of Doubles Week
Workout 1 was 21 Day Fix: Dirty 30, 30 Day Arm Challenge Day 25, and 30 Day Butt Challenge Day 20.
Today is the last Double workout day of the week. I am debating if I want to do another round or try 21 Day Fix Extreme. Anyone know if I will need to take a break from exercise after having Nexplanon put in? I don’t want to start something new if that’s the case and will just continue with a second round.Day 6 of Doubles Week
Workout 2 was 21 Day Fix: Pilates Fix.
It will be kind of nice to go back to one workout a day for awhile.This mornings workout was 21Day Fix R2- Total Body Cardio Fix.
I didn’t time things right and don’t have time for the 30 Day Challenges right now, but I will fit them in later today.
My eating was all over the place during the first 2 weeks and I really didn’t see any changes as a result of that. This last week I did pretty good with food choices and hopefully I can keep the momentum going.
Can we just skip to Saturday? I really dislike the cold 🥶Today’s workout was 21 Day Fix: Upper Fix, 30 Day Arm Challenge Day 27, and 30 Day Butt Challenge Day 22.

It felt so good to stretch everything back out. I might do it again later today.Today’s workout was 21 Day Fix: Total Body Cardio, 30 Day Butt Challenge Day 27, and Keep Training: Core Workout - Beginner.
I may feel drained (TOM), but I pushed through. Tomorrow I get Nexplanon put in so I might have to take it easy Friday and Saturday.Today’s workout was 21 Day Fix: Upper Fix, 30 Day Butt Challenge Day 27, Keep Training: Abs Training - Beginner, and Keep Training: Quiet Workout for Fat Loss - Beginner.
Nexplanon is in. Doctor said walking was okay, but to hold off on anything else until it heals. So until I can get back into my normal routine I am going to put more focus on what eat.Well I got to take the wrap off my arm, but it still hurts. I really want to workout. It’s part of my everyday routine and feels odd to not do it. That said I am going to take my doctors advice and wait.Still waiting for the area around my Nexplanon to heal. The bruise is starting to get better and I can move my arm in more positions without pain 😊. So it’s getting there. There are still a few positions that I get a stabbing pain from. 😫
On another note, the lack of exercise has caused my body to release all the water retention my muscles were holding onto. Who would have guessed my muscles were holding onto 2.5lbs of water? 🤔😂So I just noticed a small rash by the Nexplanon insertion site. I am thinking based on shape and location it might actually be from the bandaids I was using. The spot is right where the adhesive was and no where else. It’s really itchy. 😫 I took some Benadryl, but will give my doctor a call in the morning to see what he thinks.Talked with my doctor and sent him this picture of the rash (without the blue line). He agrees that it looks to be from the bandaid, but I should watch to make sure it doesn’t get worse or start to look infected. If it does he wants me to come in right away.
The blue line is where the Nexplanon is. The red irritated area is exactly where the bandaid was placed and is even kind of shaped like it.So some of you may remember seeing my posts about the rash by my Nexplanon insertion point that looks to be from the bandaid. Well I talked with my mom today and it turns out that she is allergic to some of the adhesives used for some baindaids and medical tapes. So allergy to the adhesive in the bandaid seems highly likely now. It’s starting to look better since I have been applying hydrocortisone cream and taking Benadryl.NSV
🎉🎉 These are size 4 dress pants with very little give in them. Today is the first time in well over a year that I have not only been able to get them up, but zip/fasten them with ease. I am a good 10lbs heavier than when I bought them 💪🏻 in 2016. I stopped wearing them in 2017 when I couldn’t get the fasteners done without them looking like they were going to pop off the pants 🙊.Yummy 😋

I’m all shaky 🤣😂
I am debating if doing the ABCA schedule might be too much for me. It’s basically 4 full body workouts a week. 🧐 On top of that I do a Jillian Michaels workout later in the day. I’m only working out 4-5 days a week, but I am thinking I might want to adjust the workout routine before I hurt myself.Strong Curves:Booty-ful Beginnings Weeks 1-4 Workout C

I haven’t done a second workout since Monday and that’s okay. I think I am going to save my Jillian Michaels DVDs for Wed and Saturday (days I don’t do Strong Curves). After next week Strong Curves is going to increase in difficulty so it’s probably a good idea to ditch the second workout anyway.Strong Curves: Booty-ful Beginnings Weeks 1-4 Workout A
Week 4 begins 🤪
I did add 20 mins on the treadmill today. Just walking on various inclines (4 to 12).Strong Curves: Booty-ful Beginnings Weeks 1-4 Workout B
Jumped on the treadmill again today. This time though I ran for 17 mins before switching to walking at an incline. I’m still shocked that I actually ran for 17 mins straight. I haven’t gone on a run in forever and the last time I actually ran for a workout 5 mins was a struggle. Looks like all those Jillian Michaels DVDs improved my endurance a bit. Thanks Jillian 🤩Strong Curves: Booty-ful Beginnings weeks 1-4 workout C

I increased my hip thrusts to 55lbs today and did all my close-grip bench press with 50lbs. One of these days I might actually start seeing definition in my arms...maybe.

Did a little math last night to discover that for the past 9 weeks I have been running a small surplus of calories each week (explains the increased weight). Looks like I’ve been doing a bulk 😂. I think after I am finished with this 12 weeks I will alter my training to 3 days heavy lifting and 3 days cardio. Hopefully that will help me with a cut.Strong Curves: Booty-ful Beginnings Weeks 9-12 Workout B
Added leg press today. Not an exercise I typically do, but I thought I’d try it. Played it safe and started with 50lbs on the first set, but was using 90lbs on the last set and I could probably go a bit heavier seeing as I was able to knock out 16 reps.😂Strong Curves: Booty-ful Beginnings Progress
5lb weight increase (I am in a surplus)
1.5 weeks until I transition into a cut. However I already see some improvement in my glutes.Strong Curves: Booty-ful Beginnings Weeks 9-12 Workout A
And week 12 begins 🤪
No extra upper body work today. I am going out to my moms in a few hours to dig holes for fence posts for her and figured I don’t want to have jelly arms for that. 😂Went to the pool with my boys today. We were there for 90 mins. Still walking around through the 3ft-3.5ft kids pool always leaves me exhausted.May 20, 2016 - 121.8 lbs scale weight / 122.5 lbs trend weightApril 13, 2016 - New Bikini came in the mail...ordered from Amazon.comMy stomach while holding a plank :(Feb - June 2015April 5, 2015May 2014 - 41 wks...2 days before second csection / 212 lbsMarch 2013 - 210.6 lbsMarch 2013 - 210.6 lbsJan 2012 - 260 lbs / drivers license photoDec 23 2011 - A couple hours after csection
