FT2- I DID IT!


Fitness Talk 2:





Guess what y'all?! 


Man, I don't even know where to begin. It's been a real tough journey. There were many many days where I had to force myself out the door/fight with my laziness/fight my way to the weights at the gym/eat healthy. The last week was the hardest, as mentioned before, because of the cardio workouts. I won't go into this too much more since I already talked about my experience here.

Before starting this program, by no means was I overweight. I ate awful though. I treated my body like a waste basket. And you can tell. I have some saddlebags and cellulite that my little frame should not have. I didn't step on a scale the entire 12 weeks because losing weight was not my end goal. I'm 5'2 and weighed 120lbs before starting. At the end of this program I now weigh 118lbs.  Therefore I have a lot more work to do. I've seen a huge improvement. My legs have not only gained muscle but they have leaned out, abs/lovehandles are shrinking, and my arms have gained muscle/leaned out. Seeing the progress my body has made makes myself even that more motivated to keep it going. I refuse to let myself slip again!


Friends, I dare you to ditch the scale!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Alright, here are the raw, unedited pictures.
It's hard to show these but I want y'all to see my progress.
And I want to document it for myself.

No pictures of my legs though.
I am not at a point where I am happy with them to be able to show them off.

note to self: take better pictures or have someone else take them for you.



PHASE 1

You can pretty much see I am just all flab. No definition.




PHASE 2

leaner, obliques making a slight comeback.



PHASE 3

I love my arms.



The supplements I took:


-most found via bodybuilding.com
-C4 Extreme - Blue Razz is a booster drink. I take it before a run or leg workout.
-I don't really like the RELOAD.
-Accelerade - Orange is my favorite drink while on a run or during a workout.
-I use chocolate whey protein for after my workouts, mixed with unsweetend vanilla almond milk.
-I use the vanilla whey protein (bought at Walmart) for my morning smoothies or to put into recipes.




Thank you to all who have motivated/encouraged/loved on me!
