End of Week #6 Stats-

Another week of maintaining my weight, but I also took measurements this week and I lost a bit from my waist :) and a bit from my hips :(  I am going to try for that last few lbs of weight lose over the next month, only around 3-4 lbs.   Then I will completely focus on training to get stronger and faster!  I took some bikini progress pics today and I am mostly happy with what I see.   My main complaint is I'm holding extra fat on my lower back/ love handle area, which is why I still want to drop a few lbs of excess fat.  Also my arms and especially the back of my arms still need a lot of work (which I am doing right now),  I hope to lose a little fat from that area and put on some muscle.

                       Height   ~ 5'4"
                     Starting  ~ 125.5
                 Last Week   ~ 122.5
                      Current  ~ 122.5   
                         Goal   ~ 116-118

                          First Week     Last Week     This Week
              Waist ~      27 in             25.75 in        25.5 in
                Hips ~      36 in             36 in            35.5 in 
              Thigh ~  20.75 in          20.5 in            20.5 in 

The 100 push-up program is going well and you can see my updated progress under the fitness goals page, I'm finishing week one and have already improved my max by a few.  I'm going to tape my push-ups again to make sure I am going low enough.

The rest are under the cut:

Way to go Katie! You have set pretty realistic goals for yourself and are on a good track to achieve them! I really admire your ambition to look toned, that I have decided to join you :) you have a kid so you know that it's not easy to find an hour in a day that you can take for yourself, but I will do my best...

Thank you all! I usually realize around May that "OMG, I start work at the beach in a month, I better get my butt in gear" and by then it's too late. Not that I don't look decent, but I want better than that and this summer I will :D

Jovana~ The most effective things I have found are sprint interval workouts and bodyweight exercises (push-ups, planks, lunges etc.) I usually do my bodyweight stuff at night while watching TV. Weights are good as well, but I don't do much with them bc I don't currently go to a gym. I did get a 15lb kettlebell recently and I love it!
