Current Weight: 73.4kg
Loss/Gain this Week: nil
This week I continued to weight train and started to notice a difference in my body. They're very small changes but enough to keep me interested and excited about continuing. Ab workouts are the worst as I have absolutely no strength there but it'll be worth it. I can not wear a black bikini until I'm toned! Can I do it in 2 months for a January holiday? We'll see and I'll certainly try.
Phillipa girl, where have you come from? :-) You've been a great inspiration to me lately. I've been wanting to challenge myself a little further with my exercise. I can't afford to go to yoga classes atm so thanks to you posting about the yoga + pilates DVDs, I ordered some last night. I think I've exhausted the DVDs I already have so change is always good to spice it up.
Below are the DVDs I ordered from Amazon. I'll write a review on here after 2 weeks of doing them.
- Yoga Shakti I love Hatha yoga in the flowing Vinyasa style.
- 10 Minute Solution Pilates I've only done Yogalates (Solomon is so annoying!) so I thought I'd try this. I love the 10 Minute Solution Series and enjoy Target Tone for Beginners. The instruction is so clear and it keeps you moving. You can program the DVDs to play a whole workout (50 mins) or just do the 10 minute segments.
I'm also not going to entertain the idea of being 65kg now. I heard that Nicole Kidman is 63kg and she looks sickly! Many people have expressed their concern to me over the past week. I am just going to focus on staying on track where I am. Weight training will change the shape of my body and because muscle is heavier yet smaller than fat, I will look smaller at the same weight. Does that make sense? I do think I look good now, even though I still have big thighs and a tummy. I'm a woman anyway. What's a woman without her curves hey and the man likes that ;-)
We're off to Sarah's engagement today at Paddington Bowling Club. Should be a blast because we'll be barefoot bowling LOL and the weather is so fine! Beer, mmmm.
Have a great weekend!!
