Bikini Body Update - April 29, 2012

Tuesday, May 01, 2012

Here's my third Body Update video. My tummy was feeling nice and flat this morning. I weighed in on Monday at 136 (gym scale).
So yeah... not doing so well at the "5 pound challenge".
I've gained 3 pounds since my first body update video in Febuary.

FEBRUARY 2012: First Video

MARCH 2012: Update

But I'm not gonna let 3 measly pounds stop me from continuing to live my life! I feel like I have finally found a BALANCED lifestyle again! I'm feeling really GOOD about my appearance (and my head space) and the amount I workout. (Which is still probably TOO MUCH but I do it because I love it!)

... 5 pounds (+ or -) is NOT worth losing sleep over!
The ultimate goal is always to just BE HEALTHY... and I'm already there! The rest is just the icing on the cake...
and who needs the icing anyways?

    I think you look great! You have nothing to be depressed about! You look curvy and sexy!! I just gained 6 lbs in 2 weeks!! The scale is just a representation of the gravitational pull toward the earth. I didn't notice your hair until you mentioned it.

    Holy cow Jessica! I swear, my 5 +/-, "pie in the sky" feeling about the whole 5 lbs etc and the whole balanced living, plus, my hair issues...
    I swear, as different was we are, we are totally dealing with parallel issues-LOL.

    So yeah, I can't agree more about the "laid back" type attitude, the whole hair dissastisfaction etc.

    Whenever I lift a bit heavier, I tend to gain a lb or 2- just a random type of observation. When it comes to 2 or 3 lbs, it's hard to distinguish water/weight bloat, real weight, muscle weight, fat weight.

    I actually think you look a bit more toned than in the original video, but the thing is that each day, our bodies look a bit different and they also do different in a video rather than in real life vs photos- to me, it can get quite confusing, hence why I try hard not to stress about too much details. If my clothes fit well and I feel good, it usually reflects outward and inward.

    I love your ab defiition for sure!

    You are looking great! Do you think you're more toned than in your last video? I think maybe so...! Also, I'm always surprised when I watch your videos to see how different your accent is from mine! You pronounce "progress" totally differently than I do. :)

    Totally agree! I decided last night that I'm not going to worry about the last 5 pounds so much. This is a good weight for me and I'm healthy, so why fuss?

    Ladies, it's not even really about how bad the hair looks, but more that I cannot let it go "eu Naturel" anymore because of the way my curls go. I will post pics of my hair done curly and you will see the source of my dissatisfaction.

    I also did NOT ask for this hair cut... the hair dresser just cut is because she thought it would look so great and give my curls a boost. Little did I realize that she was actually cutting off all of my curls and giving me a fe-mullet.
    emoticon NOT COOL!

    You look amazing. I personally don't think the hair looks bad.

    I actually went "tssssk" when you said they used hot rollers on you! Oh gurrrrl they did not know what they were doing! haha! I don't think it looks bad though, but I understand why you'd be upset if it's not what you want.

    You sound like you're in a really good place, and you look great too!

    You asked what I do/did for my hair... I read on that you dry-cut the hair while it's curly. Then I dyed it, rinsed and conditioned, dryed/flat ironed it stick-straight, and followed this you-tube for an idea how to blend the layers:

    Loved your dating blog too btw!

    You look great as is - I would kill to have your flat tummy! - and have your head in the right place about the scale. It is not fun dealing with a haircut you don't like...maybe you could experiment with some cute ways of wearing it up until it grows back?
