Kicking my own butt.

I have been doing great this weekend with working out! I went 9 miles on the Nordic Track today. I did 200 crunches, this time I mixed it up more than usual. I've mastered reverse crunches, oblique crunches, bicycle crunches, and torso twists. It's really starting to show, too. I put on my bathing suit for the first time in almost a week and I couldn't believe how much more loose it was in the belly area! I did get compliments at the pool from a few friends, too. In addition to those things, I also did the 30 Day Shred, and tried out a new DVD called Crunch: Belly, Butt & Thighs Boot Camp. I did arm exercises in addition to all of these things, too. I feel great & I can't even believe the difference between my body this week versus last week. It's amazing. I love feeling AND seeing the results all at once, you know?

People who haven't seen me in a few months will be shocked the next time we meet, guaranteed.

I also am really pleased to say that my father complimented me on how well I've been doing. He's not much for compliments. He says I am inspiring him to want to work out, too! When I told Laurin that he said that to me, she admitted that I was her inspiration for working out again! I can't believe how many people I'm motivating to better their lives through exercise! So happy!

I made a list of goals for the week which I will share tomorrow at some point. I hope you had a great weekend and have an even better week!


  1. Sounds like your really dedicated on your exercise, I wish I could be that dedicated. 200 crunches is very impressive!

    It's nice when people compliment on weight loss, it makes it more worth it :)

  2. I had a two week period where I wasn't doing much but complaining, haha. So I am trying to make up for lost time.

    I love getting compliments! I used to blush and tell people to shut up if they complimented me, now it makes my whole day better. I do still wonder if maybe people are just saying it to be nice, but my clothes being so loose tells me all I need to know.
