“Celebrate what you’ve accomplished, but raise the bar a little higher every time you succeed” ~ Mia Hamm
Although I’ve reached the original goal weight set at Weigh-Less and earned my points, I want to get a little lower than initial goal weight as it was at the top of the band and I feel that I could drop a few more kgs, so I am continuing the weigh less journey. I had lost, then gained a kg and to keep motivated and on track headed to weigh-in and was thrilled that I have shed the one kg again. I’m not obsessed and have to keep reminding myself that I could gain a little weight as I’m starting to build muscle and that can make the scale start heading north.
Yesterday was a good day! Of course a positive weigh-in always makes for a good start to the day and leaves me feeling super sassy. Super sassy calls for a sassy look and I decided to give my new Levi’s an airing. I had not noticed at the time of purchasing them that they were low rise and I’m not the biggest fan of low rise jeans, but I decided that since they look so fine, I’d ignore the fact that they are low rise.
In addition to the jeans, I added a strappy top and some heeled sandals. Simple and easy look – no added jewellery (except for my usual diamond studs, infinity bracelet and thumb ring) as I think the top has enough going.
After sitting at my pc for almost three days solid and working pretty late on Monday and Tuesday evening on my ‘get this stuff done list’, I was so tired yesterday morning that I did not head to gym and instead did the caynax abs workout at home. Last night I started feeling irritable and the heat was starting to fry my brain, so I headed off to gym with the intention of doing some cardio. You know the saying/quote you’re one workout away from a good mood, right? When I start feel super grouchy and catty I find the best mood adjuster to be a session at gym. When I arrived at gym I hit the elliptical walker (I’m determined to make friends with it and I like that my legs work harder on it than on the treadmill) and then was heading past the studio when I saw my trainer Jurie doing his abs class. I was watching them work when he saw me and called me to join. It was great and I totes enjoyed it. He kicked our arses. Something more to add to the growing list. Only wish he did a class in the morning as I’m a morning gym girl.
With summer here, its time to work everything, but with strappy tops in the closet, a little extra effort is going to be needed for the arms and shoulders. Found a simple workout online to do at home on non gym days. Click the image below and check out Jareds’ site – awesome workouts to consider.
As Flylady says, you can do anything for 15 minutes.
