I know I am 7 days late, but really my goal is to journal everythingi put in my mouth and check the boards to keep me motivated. Logging in everyday is key and I am starting now! I am one of those people that believe every minute we have is a chance to start over!!
Well here we are already in May --------------- finally some warmer weather and beautiful flowers . Lets think about a change for may; If you took one pound of fat and put it in front of you it would equal a grapefruit in size. If you take a pound of muscle and put it in front of you it would equal an orange in size. Looking at both you’ll find that they are both the same weight but one pound of fat is bigger and takes up a lot more room. If you lose 10 grapefruits off your body , and gain ten oranges, and they both individually weigh one pound, you would be the same weight but a lot smaller afterward. Because of this size difference you may see your clothes get bigger on you, your inches go down, and people telling you that it looks like you lost weight. However, if you get on the scale you may stay the same weight and appear to be a lot smaller. This happens when you do a regular exercise program because you always initially build muscle. Usually 2-4 pounds for a woman, and 5-10 pounds for a man. So with this in mind = this month we are going to focus our challenge on losing a few grapefruits and when we gain a few oranges iin its place we will still be trimmer................. this month - the scale is not going to rule.
Lets just keep it very simple for may -------------- here 's a link to a video that is really for pregnant and post pregnant Moms - but what great exercises for all our "pouches" check it out and do them this month;
