Operation Bikini – Day 3
Well, this is interesting. My stats as of this morning, with cm lost in brackets:
Bust: 83.5 cm (1/2 cm)
Hips: 87 cm (3 cm)
Butt: 100.5 cm (1/2 cm)
Thighs: 56 cm (1 cm)
Waist: 69.5 cm
It might not sound like much to you, but it’s progress to me! I’m a girl with humps a la Black Eyed Peas, so I wasn’t expecting to lose much around my backside; the most important thing is that it’s looking perkier and feeling firmer. As for my lady lumps, I’d be happy if I didn’t lose too much more… Why are they always the first to go and last to come back?!
Also, I can actually move today, which is a pleasant surprise. It’s raining again so I guess that means it’s back to Zumba and Tracy Anderson (girl is CRAZY, fyi – I almost threw up yesterday). I’ve developed a head cold, which my boyfriend tells me is common when you start working out more – apparently the effort reduces your immunity, or something. And here I was thinking exercise makes you healthier.
I forgot to mention that I start each day with a cup of hot water and lemon. I’ve done this every day for over 10 years, and I can’t recommend it highly enough as a cleansing start to your day. Also add a slice of lemon to your green tea for added benefits (see Beauty Booster from July 5, below).
On the menu today:
Breakfast: Oatmeal with blueberries
Snack: Banana and peanut butter
Lunch: Roasted vegetables and hummus in pitta bread
Dessert: Probiotic yogurt and nectarine
Seriously, I need to go get a tissue. I’ll catch you guys later!
