I began measuring myself again on Monday mornings when I started Rachel Hollis’ #last90days challenge. It was just another reminder that I needed to get moving again because these measurements aren’t going to change without me making that happen.
I started off during that first week on a Wednesday. I did a Jillian Michaels DVD for a few days. The second week I switched over to riding my stationary bike daily. Then my friend Shannon got me to commit with her to an eight week program (Liift4) of weights. With that commitment came a 5am wake up at least four days a week. If you know me, then you know I’m not a morning person. But it fell in line with the #last90days challenge of getting up an hour earlier every day. It’s been kind of nice actually.
Although I haven’t seen much of a shift in my measurements yet, I’m feeling confident that I will once I finish the eight week program. Along with Liift4 I’ve been cycling daily and on my recovery days I’ve done some restorative yoga. The yoga has been helping me from getting stiff after lifting weights.
It’s nice to switch it up and since fitting the gym into my schedule doesn’t seem to be working – doing it at home at zero dark thirty is what it will have to be. Being self employed, the time I get the majority of my work done is when the kiddos are in school. So to also try and for gym time in there isn’t practical (even though I’d love to take some more of those trampoline classes). Maybe someday when I can hire some employees!
Looking forward to what happens with next weeks measurements!
