Quick update

Monday, November 21, 2011

Life is crazy busy right now, since I am nearing finals. The ONLY grade for each class is the final exam, so it's really high pressure (and stress). Plus, I am working on a big 30+ page research project in addition to finals prep, so this will be a short blog! :)

I have news. Big news. I can now fit into 2 pair of pants that I have not been able to fit into since the first month of law school! YAHOO! Both are still snug, but wearable. I've only lost about 5 pounds according to the scale, but I have shrank quite a bit. More muscle, less fat? I'll take it!

This is a really bad picture, but this is one of the pants that now fit:



I am still doing personal training, and it's hard but totally amazing. I am so much stronger now than I was just a month ago! I am using 10 lb weights for almost everything now (I started out with 5's), and I can hold the plank for over a minute. I'm so glad I found this gym - I feel amazing!

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone in Sparkland!

    Great job, Sarah!! The plank is one of my favorites. I like trying all sorts of varieties of it. Sides ones, pushing my hip up and down while on the side, modified position and then rock back and forth on my toes. We are even doing one in Kettle bells where we pull the kettle bell up from plank position to strengthen our back and then do a push up, then do the other side.

Keep rockin that plank and school!!
