Ah yes, Tuesday morning, the day I once again take my official weight and measurements for the whole world to see. Today was a good week results wise, so I am one happy camper.
Yesterday I did Pump Extreme once again, I love me some Pump. I was able to up my weight: chest = 10lbs, tri’s = 5lbs and squats = 20lbs. I also made it through the lunge track without having to take a break, so big fitness day. Then I got a message from a friend who wanted to know if I wanted to try Zumba class with her. I went. It was a lot of fun, I spend a portion of the time just moving about in mass confusion, but I didn’t mind. It was one heck of a cardio session. i haven’t had a sweat like that during cardio in a while.
It apparently was a day to be worried, concerned, afraid for me and/or to basically think what I am doing is stupid. The worried, etc, is not a big deal. At least I know people care. But rest assured world, I eat well and I work hard to get results but I don’t hurt myself, crash diet, or over do it. I am okay I promise, so chill out and I love you all too. I wish people understood that what I am doing is really good, and that a little pain can add up to amazing things for my body. I am getting stronger, leaning out, dropping body fat, gaining more energy and loving myself more and more each day. What’s so bad about that? Now the people who think this is a phase or just plan dumb or nuts. get off the pot and do something for you body before you worry about what I do for mine. I noticed that the past 24 hours thi has been a thing not only for myself but fellow bloggers so maybe it was just in the air.
And here are my Week 8 results, You ready for this Jelly?
- Chest: 36 inches (- 0 inches)

- L Thigh: 24.5 inches (- 1 inches)

Did you notice that my BMI is down enough that I am no longer considered obese?? YAY!!! Just shedding the word OBESE from the list of words that could describe me is amazing. I love it! I also am measuring down a bra size. Good bye DD, hello D. May sound like a bad thing to you but DD are just too big for me. My doc didn’t think I would lose breast size seeing they were large before the weight gain but all those chest exercises did the trick! Maybe I can get down to a C, that would be amazing. So today, I shall bra shop and actually find frilly pretty ones because I am not buying plain jane upper decker flopper stoppers! Not to sound repetitive but I love Les Mills Pump and am amazed at my achievements on the program!
Now on to week 9
