I had gained all my weight back after my Body Beast results & I'm so mad at myself. Grrrr! :(
So after the holidays I knew I needed to get my butt in gear and get back at it. I started up a challenge group on January 5. I never missed a workout. I ate mostly clean, with some off-track weekends here and there. I started to get a little down on myself because I felt like there weren't hardly any changes. But I FELT like I was getting stronger and tighter, so I decided I needed to take some new pictures. Holy Cow! I WAS changing! I was so used to seeing myself in the mirror every day, that I didn't see how much I actually changed.
Here is one shot that I will share with you all.
Okay, ignore the mug-shot look - that's just my neutral face. haha ;)
I actually ended up losing about 9 lbs and 10 inches. Not too shabby for thinking it wasn't working.
My strength and endurance have improved so much, it's crazy! I am able to do all the plank-work now and my core is tighter. (Oh - and did I mention I used the modifier the entire time??) Totally did. I admit it.
I love, love, LOVE this program! Not just because of the results I got, but because I actually looked forward to doing it every. single. day. It was a great workout - not too hard, not too easy, fun, and only 30 minutes. What's not to love? It is definitely my soul-mate cardio workout. (Body Beast is my soul-mate weights workout.)
