Progress!

Alright, I've been all over the place this last month with workouts. Which is good I guess because then my body doesn't used to the workouts I'm doing. I was still following T25 in Beta phase and then I started the Bodyrock 30 day challenge from May of 2012 with my fitness group and so far I'm loving the results.

I've been doing the 12-16 minute HIIT along with a Turbo Fire or T25 video making the total workout about 40 minutes along with the 10 minute stretch video from Turbo Fire. I've also changed my eating habits the last 2 weeks. I used to take a lunch and two snacks to work and would end up eating every 2 hours - which is more than necessary since I have an office job. I'm not burning calories sitting on my ass.

So now I take a small snack: cottage cheese, apple, Greek yogurt with granola, etc. and I have that on my morning break which is usually 3 hours after I have breakfast and then I eat my lunch at least 2 hours after my break. My schedule sucks because I have to adhere to whatever has been scheduled for me which can vary from an hour and 15 minutes between breaks to 3 hours between. I've been doing really good with not eating after dinner too so the combination of these things has helped me :)

I took measurements about a month ago so here are the results:
            Nov 4 - Dec 8
Chest - 32 3/4" - 33" = gained 1/4"
Waist - 30" - 28 1/2" = lost 1 1/2"
Belly - 33 1/2" - 33" = lost 1/2"
Hips - 37 1/4" - 36 3/4" = lost 1/2"
Thigh - 22 1/2" - 21 5/8" = lost about 3/4"

I'm going to measure again tomorrow morning and evening to see how much of a difference the time of day makes. I really haven't eaten much today so I don't know how true the number is for my waist and belly but the others I'm pretty happy with :) I bought jeans yesterday and I was able to buy a size 6. In the summer I bought a pair of size 8's. I can't wait to see how far I can go with this regime.

I hope everyone had a great weekend :)
