So here it goes. I only took measurements of things I actually care about. For example, I could give a ish less if my arms got smaller. Truthfully, I think my arms are fine, even with the little bit of extra wave that goes on some times. So, if I build muscle and they get bigger, like last time, that's only better for me. :)If you want to know what I look like half naked, scroll down to my first post. If not (I don't blame you) just keep reading. lol.
From just under the belly button (my biggest problem area): 37 inches
hips/butt (ba donk a dont): 42 inches
Thunder Thighs: 22 inches
I'm almost done my first week of Focus T25 with Shaun T. Today was the hardest one by far. I have an exciting weekend ahead, which I'll tell you about on Monday, so I had the day off. And, as usual, I'm awake bright and early still, while the boys sleep. BOO!! So I figured I might as well get up and get my workout in.
Today was the Lower Focus workout. I don't have much lower body strength which blows my mind. My lower body used to be on point. I had thick quad muscles and sexy calf muscles. I was a dancer for 15 years and then a cheerleader all throughout high school. I was constantly working my lower half. Now it's everything I have to keep balance.
Part of that is because of the broken foot and it just plain hurts to put all my weight on it, but I tried and I did my best. I had to take a few 2 second breaks just to release the pain. lol. But pain is good. I can tell you my legs are shaking like the leaves on a tree right now!!!
OK, so I mentioned in the last post about drinking a protein shake after my workout. Drinking one right now actually...
I had a few people ask me about how I make my protein shakes, so I figured why not write the recipe in the blog!! It's so easy!!
We use just regular old whey protein from Walmart. It's like $16 per 1.95 lbs. We usually buy a few different flavors so we don't get bored. Vanilla is by far my favorite though.
Put all this in a blender...
1 heaping scoop of protein
1 banana frozen or not
1 spoonful of peanut butter (optional)
about 1/3 cup of oats (optional)
cover with milk
ice cubes until your desired thickness
So easy. and Delish!!
How's your workout journey going?!?!
