Back To Flat, Part Two
So, wondering how I’m doing? Let’s take a look and see, shall we?!?
The left side shots with me in Grey was two and a half weeks ago. The right side shots with me in Pink was yesterday. I’m starting the week four exercises and am down a full inch in my waist. I can also see a slight difference in the space between my legs in the full-frontal shots. My back is a little arched in the Pink-hued shots but my shirt was weird (and since I didn’t want to change into workout clothes and further delay this post) I was trying to make it work.
The week three exercises of the Abs, Core, and Pelvic Floor program I’m doing were no joke. They target the oblique muscles and those in the lower abdomen. It incorporated a modified plank exercise I was thrilled about–full-on planks are no-nos for diastasis recti but planks are SUCH a great core builder so I’m happy to be doing them in any shape or form. Also included were what I call mini sit-ups; lying on your back with knees bent, bracing your core, and barely lifting your head off the floor. I broke a sweat doing them which hadn’t happened before. The morning after day one of week three, I was definitely sore in that good I’m-transforming-my-body kind of way.
I’m still running and training for my race though the end of last week and last weekend was a bust–my family went out of town on a mini vacation with two other families and I ate every cookie and drank every glass of wine. I’m feeling good and more accomplished with each run. Someone at work saw me standing at a side angle from a distance and said I looked “so tiny.” I’ll take it!
I’m excited that I have made it to week four of this program. Thanks for coming along on this journey with me. Stay tuned for my final-for-now results!
