On the left is my photo before the squat challenge, and on the right is the photo AFTER I completed a 30 day squat challenge and did 2,680 squats in 30 days!! Woohoo! There is not much difference in the photos except for the fact that I am still able to stand up straight after all those squats!
I also completed 1 month of doing planks for 100 seconds per day. I did not miss a day! That is 50 minutes of holding my body in a plank!!!
The biggest win for February was the consistency of completing these challenges. There were nights that I just wanted to go to bed...but I dropped to the carpet and made sure I counted my planks before I went off to sleep!
I did not take MEASUREMENTS ON 2/1..... BUT HERE IS THE COMPARISON FROM JANUARY 1 TO MARCH 2....
LEFT ARM ON JANUARY 1= 13 INCHES, 3/1= 12 INCHES!
LEFT THIGH ON JANUARY 1= 24.25, 3/1= 24
CALF ON JANUARY 1=16.6, ON 3/1= 16.25
RIGHT THIGH ON JANUARY 1= 24.5, ON 3/1= 24.5
CALF ON JANUARY 1=16.75, ON 3/1= 16.5
HIPS ON JANUARY 1= 41.75 AND ON 3/01= 41
WAIST ON JANUARY 1= 35, ON 3/1= 33.5
SMALL LOSSES IN ALMOST ALL AREAS....WOOHOO!
I WEIGHED 168.0 on 1/01 AND ON 3/01 WEIGHED 164.0
Now, I need to build on that consistency and focus on my eating!
My goals for March:
1. Complete another thirty day squat challenge
2. Continue my 100 seconds on planks but trying to make them harder
3. Low carb eating plan
4. To be at or near my weight loss goal for the month, as calculated on my Spark reports and ticker from the goals I set at the new year.
I hope you all have a great month! I plan to really work hard to make this a month of building on what I have learned so that I can get the results I am planning for!!
