I'm feeling pretty good where I'm at right now. Mentally I feel strong and having 2 Wednesday's that I didn't eat the entire house has made me feel even stronger. I've been staying within or at least very close to my DPT and I'm making good decisions. Physically I'm noticing a lot of changes and I don't know if it's all in my head but I'm happy!
I swear I'm seeing more definition since I've been consistent for the past month with weights. I was getting into bed the other day and I picked my leg up to put it under the covers and my quad was like "hey girl!!" Damn!! I was so excited to see that!! It was nice too because it caught me by surprise. When I'm working out I'm looking in the mirror and observing and if I'm squatting of course my quads are going to be bulging but I was just tucking myself in when my leg gave me a high five. It was like "don't quit! We're making progress!"
And I know I'm going to sound insane but I swear I'm noticing definition in my abs. I mean I'm not gonna throw on a bikini or show off on Instagram because I have a lot of fluff and saggy skin that I'm still working on but I swear that underneath all that there is a 6 pack growing. It'll probably never be Instagram worthy but when I get out of the shower and I see that my pudge has deflated a little more and my sides are curving in ever so slightly I definitely do a little victory dance in my bathroom. Then I walk past the mirror again a few times, give myself a nod.
But for now I'm off to rest my sore body! Lifting heavier weights to see your muscles bulge is exhausting work!!
