It has been quite awhile since I updated you all on my progress and thought it was due time. Since getting sick mid-January, my motivation has been weak to say the least. I tried to do a third round of Insanity again, but got tired of it. Then I decided to do the hybrid version of P90X and Insanity, but hurt my back on some of the P90X floor exercises. From that, I played around with the Biggest Loser workouts and now am back to good 'ol Billy Blanks and Tae Bo. Yep, I admit, I get bored quickly with workouts and need something to keep me going. I am in that phase again where I am trying to find the next fun workout to keep me going.
With all of the jumble of workouts, I did actually loose weight and inches since January. It hasn't been much, but I am impressed with the inches lost than I am the pounds. Since January, I have lost another 7 lbs and 6.75 inches! So overall since last year, I have lost a total of 23.4 lbs and 22.25 inches! Plus, I have gone down 2 sizes in pants and am finally fitting back into my medium sized t-shirts which means I can stop wearing my husbands large size t-shirts! It is the little things that I take into account and call it a victory. Yes, I know I still have a long way to go with 30 pounds yet to loose, but every small step counts in my book. I am too chicken to post before and after pictures just yet as I am not where I want to be. So hopefully this time next year I will have one of those cool YouTube videos everyone makes with before and after pics to get my pre-baby body back!
Ok, onto the raw diet before dinner. I have to admit, I have fallen off of that horse two weeks ago. Yes, I did get more energy from eating fruits and veggies, but certainly missed a hot lunch. The weather has been quite chilly here, but am hoping once it gets warmer out I will be back in the smoothie swing of things like I usually am in the summer months. But, I did get a chance to make some amazing raw recipes and will be incorporating them in more and more into our vegan lifestyle.
