This strategy has been working out for me I think. It's been almost 4 months exactly since I started training with my trainer. I've lost about 10 lbs so far! But more importantly, I've definitely lost inches. I wish I had measured myself before, but I didn't so I can only judge from how my clothes fit. I would guess that I've lost at least 1 inch around the waist, because a lot of my pants that used to fit perfectly are now too big in the waist. My boobs are smaller too though. Sad face. But I do feel pretty great! I think I gain muscles very slowly, but I have become much stronger from all the heavy weight lifting, so something is happening whether I see it on the surface or not!
Ok, enough digress. :) Moving onto this week's workouts and outfits! I continued doing the kicked-up-a-notch weight training that my trainer gave me last week. Although I still felt sore after the back/bi workout, I recovered much faster than last week. It's pretty amazing how fast the body adapts. I really love all my workouts. In the past 4 months, I can honestly say I have not missed a single workout that was on my schedule!
What I did: Lower body weights, followed by 30 minute cardio interval session on 15% incline. For these interval sessions, I basically fast walk for a minute at 4.5-4.7 mph, then rest for 45 seconds at about 3-3.2 mph. Repeat the entire 30 minutes. Actually goes pretty fast.
What I wore: Lululemon ocean stripe mellow lemon cool racerback with very green free to be bra under. I also wore Lululemon Lab Perennial tight in coal, and Nike Frees in gray/crimson. I went for the mix of bright colors!
As to and from, I wore my fresh teal/very green swiftly LS:
What I did: Shoulder and Tri workout, followed by my 30 minutes interval.
What I wore: Lululemon Cross My Heart tank in silver spoon with Beyond Yoga Gathered Legging in dusk and same Nike Free shoes as Monday!
What I did: My back and bi workout, and 30 minute cardio interval session again!
What I wore: Oh, totally didn't even realize I had this matchy-matchy outfit in my closet - Lululemon Run: Ta Ta Topper tank in black/groovy stripe nimbus and matching Bandha Crop in soot light with groovy stripe nimbus waistband and edging around the hem. New Balance Minimus Road shoes.
I wore the Victoria's Secret VSX Sport Angel Sport bra under the tank. I didn't realize that you could see quite a bit of it in the back! Oh well. But let me just be a broken record again and say that Victoria's Secret really knows its shit when it comes to bras, regular or sports.
What I did: It was my rest day from weights, but I went to pilates class.
What I wore: Lululemon Dance Strap tank in gold (why doesn't Lulu make beautiful jewel tones anymore?) and Beyond Yoga gathered legging in mojave. Zigi Kickin wedge sneakers because they are like my pilates to/from uniform!
What I did: Lower body circuit. Then my 4th and final cardio interval session of the week.
What I wore: Lole Fly tank in fusion coral with Lululemon Ebb & Flow crop in deep indigo, with Nike Frees in violet. The shoe laces and tank are a pretty decent match!
Still loving the back of this tank a lot!
What I did: My 5th and final weight workout of the week. :) Upper body super sets.
What I wore: Lorna Jane Janet mesh tank with Lululemon spry blue free to be bra under it. Lululemon Run Fast short in black - I don't normally wear shorts to the gym (because I don't like my legs touching the equipments lol) but it's been SO hot here lately! Nike Free shoes in blue glow.
Ok, that is all for this week! I think I will go shopping now. :) Wishing you all a beautiful weekend!
