Since I’ve added Pilates 6 days a week for the past two weeks I’ve already seen more definition on my body. It’s challenging, but doable. If you’re mainly doing cardio and you want some tone, look into Pilates!
With a little more fat burn and continued muscle toning I know I’ll reach my goals.
Ayooo. It’s been a year to the day that I started being more active and eating more clean.

I definitely see a change! Fat loss is challenging in so many ways and takes TIME. I’m committed to doing what I can to be my healthiest self. I still have some progress to make to meet my goals, but this is an incredible year-long feat.
UPDATE: I’m still exercising! I just haven’t had a chance to take my weekly photo the last couple weeks because of the craziness of moving and getting situated with classes.
I have, however, continued hitting the gym, and I feel amazing. Hopefully I can post a picture soon!
Yesterday I started trying on random articles of clothing and they fit so much differently/more comfortably. After 50+ days of committing to the gym, I look and feel worlds more comfortable in my clothes and in my skin.
This is worth it.

I don’t know exactly how many pounds I’ve lost since being serious about hitting the gym every day that I can manage it because I don’t own a scale and am more concerned with how I feel and look. After 50 days of cardio, light resistance training, and eating differently, I’m seeing some changes!
This is my progress as of last Tuesday, everyone. Wow, what a change.
Week 8, Day 50
Day 50?? I can’t believe it’s been that long! For your information, I went out and bought a comfy size 32 in jeans today. I’m usually a snug size 34. Now all my pants need to be pulled up constantly, which isn’t exactly the worst feeling in the world. (:
Hitting the gym right after this post!
I totally forgot to do a week 7 post. I was too wrapped up in my travel plans, but rest assured, the gym is still a daily activity (dare I say, a daily habit?).
I’m sure I’ll remember to post a week 8 next Tuesday!
WHAT a difference about 7 weeks makes. My body has definitely toned, slimmed down, and now I’m starting to see it in my face, which is one of the places I’m most self conscious about when I’ve got more pounds on than I want to.
Seeing these changes just makes me even more motivated. Imagine where I’ll be in another month or two?
After these four weeks I can honestly say that pants are fitting a little more loosely. This works, people!
