If you’ve ever had negative thoughts about your body, this is the post for you.
Recently we went through all of the boxes we packed from my apartment when I moved here, and there really wasn’t as much as I thought. But what there was a lot of was clothes! I mean, I had 2 suitcases and a duffle bag of clothes that I thought wouldn’t fit for a looooong time. I was happily wrong!

Another week down and my progress is finally evident! I might have mentioned, or maybe I didn’t, that this month my focus would be on my arms and back. DISCLAIMER: That does not mean I’m only doing arm and back related workouts; I’m just more focused on those area considering that’s where my weaknesses are.
I’ve been doing 3 arm/back days a week and it’s starting to pay off. I don’t have nearly as many progress pictures as I would like but this one is something special.
Yesterday, I measured around my right bicep. You can imagine my shock and awe when I saw that I had dropped from 13 inches to 11.5! I started focusing more on these areas on July 25th, which makes that a good 2 week progress. My goal was to be down to 11 inches by October, so I think I’ll make it in good time! Let’s see if I can zap that half an inch over the next 2 weeks!
In other areas, I’ve lost about half an inch around my hips. I haven’t focused nearly as much on my midsection as I probably should. I definitely put my booty over my abs, but next month my challenge will be to shrink down 2 inches around my hips.
Second DISCLAIMER: Those of you who follow my youtube videos will notice that I don’t have a “progress” video… I do, but due to how I feel about clutter and multiple uploads per day/week, my progress video won’t be going up until the following Monday. This Monday I have my recipe video of my delicious breakfast sandwich. The perks of working in food service is learning how to do that stuff at home!
Until next update, guys! Keep up the hard work and don’t forget to hydrate!
In addition to doing my youtube videos, I’ll be posting with a little more depth into my journey. So hold onto your pants guys, this should be very interesting and entertaining.
This past week has been a rough one. I lost a friend who apparently never had any interest in us even being friends in the first place and befriended me to try and screw up my relationship (not realizing how honest my significant other is with me… about everything, literally). I can delve into that a little bit deeper, but until I have a moment to organize my thoughts on that, I’m letting it sit and stew in the corner.

Ever since my boyfriend and I moved in, I have been cooking like a maniac – which is interesting, considering I’m a baker, not a chef. I’m pretty much Episode 1 of My Drunk Kitchen Hannah Hart. I can follow directions and I know what I like.
