by the measurements

A couple of weeks ago I shared my week one of my squat program with all of you. Well five weeks have already flown by and I have completed my first phase.

I don’t believe in scales. I think the numbers can be deceiving  and make us all obsessed on what it says. When I set a goal for myself I do take measurements and will weigh myself but NOT everydayNOT everyweek, ONLY when my program for that phase is up, so I can track my progress.

These pictures are never the most flattering, wearing my undies and sports bra, with no make up on and taken first thing in the morning for consistency. Although, I’m putting them out there for everyone to understand that it takes hard work, dedication, and will not happen overnight. 

The blue hipsters were taken on January 9th, 2017. The red on February 6, 2017.

My goal is to grow my booty, and keep my waist small. I am 5’7″.

By the numbers: blue / red

Weight: 140.7 lbs / 141.2lbs

Waist: 28.75  inch / 28.5 inch

Hips: 38.25 inch / 38.5 inch

Quads: 21.75 inch / 21.3 inch

Calf: 13.25 inch / 13.2 inch

When I look at these pictures, I don’t see any major changes in my body and honestly I don’t even expect too. I am not training for a competition or completly trying to change my physique.   I want to live a healthy lifestyle and be able to share with you.  Although, even when I look at my numbers it can be discouraging that my calves are a little smaller.  This is what I know, I have been working hard going to the gym, and kicking my ass in the gym.  I grew my booty a 1/4 inch and made my waist 1/4 smaller.  Those are some rad stats for an everyday concious healthy gal.

Helpful tips:

  1. be consistent
  2. plan ahead
    1. meal prep
    2. plan your workouts
    3. put them in your calendar with reminders!
    4. have healthy snack options available
      1. check out USANA’s MySmart bars here
  3. balance your lifestyle
    1. I still enjoy a glass of red wine while watching the bachelor
    2. I make healthier choices in food, but still don’t turn down a date night or a girls night out (I try to only do once a week)
  4. accountability 
    1. I am sharing this with you to keep myself accountable
    2. have a workout buddy/meal prep buddy

Next phase of my squat program is a new 9 week program. I’ll continue to track my progress and share my photos with you.

Remember be inspiring for youself & others will be inspired.
