Size 16 Mission and More

Today is the 3rd day of my new hybrid program. So far - I'm in love with it AND I'm already feeling awesome from it. I am glad I found it and took the steps to see if something else would work better for me. I have done 2 days of Chalean Extreme and I am sorry I thought it wouldn't be that great before. I bought it at least 4 years ago after falling in love with Turbo Jam. Then I got it and didn't have the weights and just never got into it. I've had it forever and just never picked it up again. If not for one of my fellow Beachbody coaches posting amazing progress on instagram I may have never actually picked it up. Anyway, what I am learning to appreciate about the program are the compound movements. The weight exercises are very different from P90x and the sessions are full body instead of very focused on a certain area. So it's just totally different. I didn't really appreciate that before trying them out. I'm thinking that this is better for me while losing just based on a few sessions and the way I feel afterwards. I think P90x is going to be amazing for me once I am closer to the end of this weight loss journey.

It was also fun to do INSANITY again!  I did plyo intervals yesterday and it's JUST as hard as it used to be, which is the nice thing about INSANITY - it can't get easier, ever.  I was able to do so much more than I could when I was in month 1 in November.  It's kind of amazing how much more to me, because I felt like I was rocking it before, ha.  I didn't really realize how much room I had to grow.  I want to do the fit test again one of these days to see how I do on that.

Now I'm heading off to the city to meet my friend for lunch.  We are going to a vegan restaurant so I'm excited about that!  But before I go, this week's pictures from my size 16 mission.


This is week 1 to this week, so quite the difference.  I started doing more cardio and I can tell.  All the cardio programs I do are very ab focused, so I think that is why my stomach is shrinking so much.  I took these on Wednesday, and I'm pretty pumped for next week's picture.  I can already see a difference in my stomach from the last few days, so I am really excited to see if I can pull this off in the next few weeks!
