When I joined BLC22 I had grand ideas of losing 2 pounds a week, which just didn't happen. I did also plan to even out my arm strength, which did. For those who don't know me, I have disc damage, which causes nerve compression. I modify a lot of the strength training assignments, but I always do something. The result is - two arms that look almost matched, even if I still can't make a left arm bicep. And I can almost lift the same amount of weight for the same amount of reps. In general, even though I lost very little weight, I look more toned.
My thighs didn't seem to get the memo that they were supposed to be involved in the last BLC round.
When I sit down, I can still grab a hunk of inner knee flesh with my hand. If I also grab a hunk of upper thigh flesh and work both hunks for a minute or two, I can start a wave of fat rolling across my thigh. (I know, I know - you want to sit next to me at the next party, huh?!?) At least since I've lost 20 pounds, this grand show is not as easy to do as it used to be. But I do not want to be able to perform any fat magic tricks anymore!
I'd like to look like a runner in my running skirt - not like a wanna be runner who doesn't wear shorts because she's afraid someone might see her thighs rubbing together.
This is my goal for BLC23. I'd like to lose some weight, too, but this time I'll be reasonable and shoot for 6 pounds.
And of course, if I achieve the body I want one of these days, someone needs to get me to reprogram my head so I stop finding ways to make a circus sideshow out of myself.
