Workout update and blogging plans

So, it's February 15. The day I promised a report to you all regarding my workout progress. Martha works out at least once a day with a trainer. For the past two weeks, I've been working out for approximately 26 minutes each day with my trainer: scary Jillian from TV's the Biggest Loser.


First off, I'll come clean. For three days, I did not work out. It turns out that I can either run errands at night or work out. There simply isn't time to do both. Next, my weight has barely budged--I've only lost .5 lbs. :( And it seems as though my thighs have gotten bigger. I hope to Martha that this is due to all the lunges, and not a reallocation of the fat in my body. Finally, I am seeing (and feeling) some progress. I do feel stronger, and I've lost .5 inches off my arms, bust and hips, and a full two inches off my waist! Woohoo!


These weights are finally justifying the space they use in this house. Actually, for some exercises in the video, I could move up to heavier weights...maybe a whole 5 pounds! My next weigh- and measure-in will be at the 30 day mark on March 2. Stay tuned!



Moving forward with the blog, I'm going to try to be a little more consistent with posts. Mondays will continue as Martha Mondays!, but the focus during the week will be on a singular topic. This week's topic: party planning. Of course, I'll continue to pepper my blog with posts of awesome shopping trips and random good things. Thanks for reading!

Isn't it amazing how much better you feel even if you only work out for 15 mintues a day? I do consider shopping/houding exercise - I do so much walking when I'm in the store, I like to think that it qualifies!

Nicely done! I've fallen behind horribly on working out myself... I definitely end up feeling it psychologically. Its just better for me when I'm fit! Oh well, I'll try again starting this weekend. :P
