Today's weight: 133.8
TOTAL Lost: -42.6
I'm beaming! Why? Because I reached my goal of hitting the 133's before my Vegas trip, which means...
BUT even though I reached goal I'm not gonna let myself spend too much money (or at least not as much as I wanted too!) because this past weekend I spent about $300+ just shopping for Vegas!
That's right people, my first pair of skinny jeans! And I realize that "skinny" jeans really have nothing to do with your body size - you can find skinny jeans in every size from 0 - 18 - but has a little to do with your body type and proportions. Just several months ago I wasn't able to fit into any pair of skinny jeans because I have bigger hips and thighs but once I decided I was going to Vegas for sure, I worked my tail off at the gym to get my body in the right shape. Yes, I know there's no such thing as spot reduction so instead I did an overall intense lower body strength training workout at least twice a week for the last two or three months. And you know what? Lifting heavy weights does not leave you big and/or bulky.
I've always been a huge fan of lifting heavy but it's really hard to convince others, especially women, that lifting like this won't turn you into a bodybuilder. Of course if that's what you're aiming for then of course you can get a little bigger. But without the correct hormones, our female bodies just won't bulk up like guys. So don't be afraid of the weights!
