Week 7 Liift 4 Review – A Mom’s Weight Loss Transformation!
I’m so excited to share week seven with you girls. I felt really focused when I started this week because I knew I only had two weeks left of the program and I do really well with short burst and short term goals. Obviously it’s a little bit easier to see the light at the end of the tunnel, so this started shred week for us. He does two weeks, I’ve shred week and you definitely notice that he has upped the cardiac.
Have to say though, when I was doing these workouts, I did not feel very lean, but playing back and watching the videos, I’m like, oh, I actually, I can see more muscle definition. I do feel and look a little leaner, so it’s good to have a mirror in your workout space. You can focus on form. It’s good to video yourself and see the progression because otherwise you just look in the mirror.
You’re going about your day to day business and you don’t notice how much you’re changing. I am dying. Jude is a nice little workout buddy. He came down, it was Chapel Day, so he had his little red tie on and he’s like, “Mom, can I work out with you?” So I love to see how much he was actually watching me, which just goes to prove that our kids are watching us so much more than we realize. Teaching them these good habits is priceless.
Joel mixed it up this week. He totally changed the order and which we used our muscle groups. I was thinking about this morning, how much I’m noticing an improvement in my ab area and it’s because I’m working my core pretty much every day. Um, I didn’t use to do this.
I was of the understanding that you only needed to work your core every other day, but working at it daily has been really strengthening it and I’m noticing a lot more tightness in that area, especially after having two kids. That’s a big deal because I do have a slight separation in the muscles going down the middle of my stomach. So I am really excited to have this opportunity to just focus on my core more on my second free days this week.
I chose AAA from A Little More Obsessed and again, using the bands and the slides are life. I love the way it makes my muscles feel and that just adds that extra tension to those tough to work areas.
Thank you Autumn for blasting out the fat on the side of my butt. I’m working my core in every single move.
I hope this inspires you and gives you some new ideas. I really hope that you’re inspired now to join our group because if you didn’t know there is a special running where when you get Shakeology that I’m obsessed with, you get a year of all these workouts for just $10. So hit me up.
