I started last Sunday, so by Sunday afternoon and all day Monday, I felt pretty bloaty. When I weighed myself on Monday morning, I was up 3-4 pounds! Kind of scary. But after that, I weighed myself every morning and I lost a pound a day ending back at where I was before by the end of the week. But I'm eating way more! Cool!!
What I did: Upper body workout, followed by 30 min of MISS, which I walked on the treadmill at like 3.5 mph and 15% incline.
What I wore: Not sure if you can see how bloated I was here, but I wore my Lululemon Power Y tank in three print, and Lululemon Lab Perennial Tight, with Brooks Pure Drift shoes.
As to and from, I wore my senorita pink Energy pullover!
What I did: It was my day off from weights, so I just did a MISS.
What I wore: Lululemon Practice Freely tank in mellow lemon/burning yellow and Zobha Racer Capri in perfect purple, and Skora Phase shoes. Ok, what's up with this tank? I have had it for a while, but only wore it once or so. The bottom band is so wide that it kept falling down my butt! Very annoying. I also avoid this tank because every time I go to the gym, someone else is wearing it lol.
What I did: I went to my pilates studio and took a class there. It was crazy hard! I love pilates. I'm glad my trainer still lets me to pilates/yoga, just don't do too much cardio he says.
What I wore: Lululemon cool racerback in currant, with laceoflage Free To Be bra under it, and Power Vinyasa crop. Oh and of course my Zigi Kickin wedge sneakers that I wear all the time now... LOL!
As to and from, I wore my fresh teal/very green LS swiftly top with concord grape Dance Studio pants. I love green and purple paired together!
Oh yeah, I had a red thing going on on Wednesday! As a work outfit, I wore the Calvin Klein shiny striped roll-up sleeve blouse with Express red pencil skirt. I added this skinny belt to it even though the skirt has no belt loops. I think belts just make every outfit look better! I wore these awesome newspaper print shoes that have black, white and red on them!
What I did: Lower body weight workout. Then I did the gauntlet for 30 minutes.
What I wore: Lululemon swiftly racerback in very green (love this one so much!) with faded zap Free To Be bra under which is quickly becoming my favorite bra/color to wear. And Team Spirit crop in coal/chirp, and Adidas adizero adios 2 shoes.
This tank seriously makes me smile every time I see it in my drawer. I love this color! And so glad I sized up to have the looser fit and longer length.
I put on the white swiftly LS top over as to and from. I seriously think this is one top that everyone should have.
What I did: Upper body weight training.
What I wore: Lululemon swiftly racerback in pink mist with new Lorna Jane Devoted 7/8 tight, and Brooks Pure Drift shoes.
So I wore my frutie tootie swiftly LS as to and from, because the color matches the back of the tights! I didn't wear it like that with the word showing though. But it's still kind of fun knowing that it matches!
I also have a fun going out outfit from Friday night. I went to a cool bar/restaurant in West Hollywood, and didn't want to get too dressed up for it. So I wore my $10 Express foiled drape front tee in an off-white fabric with subtle sheen, and Express diagonal striped knit mini skirt that I got for only $9 and love. And I wore these cool Adrienne Vittadini diamond fishnet tights that I got from Hautelook for $7. So the whole outfit costs $26... lol.
Saturday 5/11 - I took the day off as my only rest day! Needed it too. Slept till like 11:30!!
What I did: Lower body weights again, I worked so hard today!
What I wore: New Lorna Jane Inspire Excel tank, with the Pammy Bra under, which I absolutely loved! Maybe Lorna Jane does make better sports bras than Lululemon. For the bottom, I wore Lululemon Run A Marathon crop and Adidas shoes. I love these shoes for weight lifting because they are supportive and stable!
I actually think the bra looks pretty good with this tank too:
Check out the side by side photo of the shirt wore over the Lululemon Run Sprint bra from yesterday's post on the left, and Lorna Jane's Pammy bra on the right. Not sure if you can see very well, but Lulu bra definitely smashes your chest down whereas LJ bra lifts the girls up! The thick cups are great. I'm sure Lulu bra would look similar though if I put the LJ cups in them. I'll have to try that some time.
This's it for tonight ladies! I am off to bed, and then getting ready for a whole new week of working hard and eating clean!
