Power 90 Day 31 - Yesterday's photos and measurements!

We made it to Day 30! A third of the way there! I've still been kind of hit and miss with the workouts. I was so proud I didn't miss any for weeks, but then we both got off track and it's been hard to get back to it.  I usually do the strength training days, but always find an excuse not to do cardio. I could tell though, yesterday when we did the strength DVD together, I was less in shape than I had been.  I have to keep doing the cardio.  Though after the workout, we went out and did yard work together and I know I got my heart rate up.  Whew! I've not done my workout for today yet BUT the house has been full of teenagers and I want to workout with Christopher when he gets off work this afternoon.  No excuses this time.  I have to make him workout with me.  he's missed more than I have.

Ok, my measurements on Day One were:

Chest      45.5
R Arm    16.5
L Arm    17.12
Waist      48
Hips        48.25
R Thigh   26
L Thigh   24.75
R Calf      17
L Calf       17

Measurements for Day 30 are:

Chest      44.5
R Arm     16
L Arm      15.25
Waist        44
Hips          46.5
R Thigh     24
L Thigh     23.75
R Calf       16
L Calf        16

For a loss of 14.12 inches overall!  That's a lot of fat! Oddly I've only lost 3 lbs since I started Power 90.  So I'm guessing there must be some serious muscle gain under all the fat that's making up for the loss. I'm ok with that. :)

So, now the photos!

 Day One is on the left in blue. Day 30 is on the right.

I'm pretty happy with the results so far. I think the next month will show some really visible results.  I've started using Shakeology which is the supplement meal replacement shake that Beachbody sells (not cheap either!).  My coach actually gave us a bag for free which was part of a Challenge pack which included Hip Hop Abs!  My daughters are doing that workout now. I hope to add some of the Hip Hop Abs workouts to my Power 90 workouts to get an extra boost. My coach said that was a good idea. It looks like a lot of fun, but I don't know if I'm that coordinated lol. 

Anyway, the Shakeology has a ton of super foods in it, and I can tell my body is taking some time adjusting to it.  I think it's definitely working as a cleanse LOL.  I was hoping not to get too dependent on this brand of protein shakes since they're so expensive, but everything I've heard and read about how much they help with weightloss and making your body healthier might make me buy another month's worth afterall.  Especially if they have another challenge pack with the Les Mills Combat workout.  That one looks really awesome.

*** Update***  I just did my workout for today with Christopher.  I did all the ab rippers!!  Woohoo! My arms are jello now, which will be hard to  type with at work, hah.  Have a great night y'all!
