Hello fabulous Sparkfriends! Yes, that means you!
I've been putting off taking a new round of selfies and finally got around to it today. Exposure! Vulnerability! Ack! Here I am, complete with pesky thigh problem that never seems to want to budge, but in general feeling fitter than I have ever felt before. I was going to say 'since high school,' but I don't think I was this cardio-valscularly fit even then.
So here are some images from during and after this morning's workout. ** Apologies for the sad photo quality -- I am using a cracked old iPhone 3 that was donated to me by my daughter's best friend, after a bird pooped on my Blackberry and killed it dead.**
I am down 15 lbs. in total, and although I have not kept up with my goal of taking regular body measurements, I can tell from the way my clothes fit that a few key things have happened: my abs have trimmed right down, my waist has reappeared, my calves are smaller and more defined, and my upper body is lean and mean.
If someone would like to share their miracle tip for getting rid of the last residue of a nearly lifelong saddlebag problem, let me know. We will make a gazillion dollars and I and millions of other people will be very happy. At least until we find something else to complain about. :-)
Overall, I'm feeling good. And here's the BEST part of all (said while knocking on wood): I have not been seriously sick with a cold ALL WINTER long and into this so-called Spring. I've had some asthma, but nothing in the way of a lasting or even very noticeable chest cold. This is HUGE!!!
