Weigh In Day---Break From the Scale

There was no weigh in today. I am taking a break from the scale.

I did however want to report that since August 10, I have lost another 6.5 inches off of my body. 3 inches were straight off my belly! It's amazing how the scale doesn't move, but the inches are coming off. Things are shifting and I feel a ton better than I did 2 months ago. This is why I decided to take the break from the scale. I just won't let it get me down!

I have also been running in conjunction with my Phit-n-Phat routines and I think I am slowly starting to love running. I am doing the Couch to 5k program from Cool Running. This week I logged 8 miles!! I am mostly run/walking but it still feels great! Walking just wasn't cutting it anymore.

Last week, while staying at my parents house, I noticed a really cool set of dumbells in my their room. They were Bowflex Dumbells and they are so cool. They adjust up to 52.5 lbs and we are outgrowing our 10lb weights, so we splurged on them. I am really excited about these!! I am really noticing my muscles taking shape thanks to the PNP routines. Specifically my arms. One thing I love about this thing is watching those muscles really start to take shape. Corinne wants before and after photos and that is my motivation to give it my all during my workouts!

Weigh in will resume next Friday.

Rock on, girl. You do what you've gotta do. If that scale is getting you down, kick it to the curb.

I am amazed by your work-out schedule...you are a machine! I hope you're going to share those before and after photos with the rest of us.
