GL Gets Fit { weekly update #10 }

weight loss motivational quotes | Celebrating Weight Loss! Motivational Fitness Quotes - Midwestern MomsHi Loves! So 9 weeks!!!! YAY! This has to be a new record for me – and I love that you are reading and even those who don’t read these posts – the thought of writing it keeps me going and motivated to keep moving forward.  So last week was a bit of an emotional roller coaster for me and if you’ve been around for a while, you know that I tend to hold my emotions in, and then EAT.  And mostly really unhealthy foods like chocolate.

After some encouraging words from my best friends – I got it together and moved on.  However…I gained a couple pounds.  So last weeks post about an all time low isn’t as relevant.  BUT – I’ll say that in a week – I gained 3 pounds…and then lost 2 – so I’m only one pound over my low.  Some times this weight game is so exhausting!  I’ll stick to my guns – on seeing progress in your measurements and inches because holy cow! I can’t wait to share with you my 4 month update in a couple weeks.  I did my measurements last week and was shocked by a couple. 🙂  Maybe you won’t be as impressed but I’m excited for seeing progress!

Now – the back challenge was picked up and I kept going.  Confession – I have now been skipping the superman because some how I’ve managed to aggravate an old injury in my lower back and it was really stiff and sore for a few days.  I’m now focused on kicking ass at flies – bridge pullovers – and rows.  I still love the feeling of the bridge pull overs as I can really feel it working my arms and thighs.  I’ve also seen improvement in my measurements on my thigh and upper arms.  If you’re curious – here’s a recap of the weights I’m using – I did modify slightly from the beginning.  As I’m writing this its (Tuesday) Day 21 – I did 80 reverse flies using 2 pound weights in each hand, 80 bridge pullovers with 5 pound weights in each hand, and 60 rows with 5 pound weights in each hand.  I’m now debating buying another set of dumbbells that are a little heavier for the next challenge.

I’m already looking for a new 30 day challenge – I’ll let you know what that will be in a few weeks!  Thanks for reading this week’s update! 🙂
