Im really glad I took measurements of my gut from the beginning, because if I hadn't I probably would have stopped by now. Even with all your guys support and encouragement it is really a downer to look in the mirror everyday and still see a fat belly. But with the measurement numbers right in front of my face I cant deny that this program is really working! Much better than I had ever imagined!! So I sit back and think about the numbers for a second....WOW...Ive lost 10 lbs, and almost 3" in 4 weeks!! Thats frickin awesome!!!! Thats whats really going to keep the fire inside me lit!!!
Now that I have that out of my system, here's my pics from today:
Here's a comparrison set that I made from week 1 and 2:
As for todays week 5 routine, it went very good. I still had to do my usual warmup #1 because I didn't get enough stuff out of the way in the garage to allow me to use my jumprope. No biggy though. I stuck with the advanced level since this week is also circuit training like week 4. Today kicked my butt a little!! LOL The switching the balance ball from hands to feet KILLS my abs!! But I love it...and the balancing on the ball pushups really arent that easy. Its amazing how much it makes your abs burn....they remind me of planks...not so much pushups. I wanted to add some stuff of my own but ran out of time, maybe wednesday.
