The Firm Challenge- Week one
As I told you all in my last post I have decided to take on the The Firm (not to be confused with the Tom Cruise movie) for the next 12 weeks and see what exactly I can do with my body when I cut back on junk food and fanny lift until I can't fanny lift no more.
This past week I was able to do five Firm workouts and two yoga workouts. I know I won't be able to keep this pace up as it takes away time from the kiddos but I'm hoping for a few more weeks of daily workouts before I take it down a notch to three or four days a week. I can really feel it in my thighs and arms already. Right now I think the changes are only noticable to me but I'm hoping it won't be too long until I'm selling tickets to the gun show.
I posted these pictures on Flickr last night and have received a lot of positive feedback with people telling me I don't need to change a thing or they would gladly give me their boobs for my abs and while appreciated, I'm just not seeing what they're seeing. Don't get me wrong, I'm okay with my shape and my weight and seeing as how I once tipped the scales at almost 180 pounds in college, I definitely feel feel healthy and fit BUT I don't think I'm doing all that I can do. If I can work out hard 3, 4, 5, 6, or 7 times a week then I should. The only reason I haven't been working out hard is because I've been fine with the way I look and why just be fine if I can be more than fine, you know?
I'll be posting my progress here with weekly pictures. I really feel like that will hold me accountable (I wanted to eat nacho chips and cheese last night but I didn't because I know that in 6 days, it's picture posting time again) and perhaps I can inspire other people.
