This is my third week of doing Flavia’s Full-Body-Licious program. My fitness level is clearly improving, because instead of doing one round of the four circuits I’m now able to do two rounds!
It still doesn’t mean I’m not completely blasted after every workout. :-p
I’m not sure whether I should keep doing three workouts a week or increase my workouts to four per week. I probably play it safe and increase the amount of workouts after I really master them.
The annoying thing about Flavia’s program is that I think I’d get more out of the it if I needn’t always fumble with the equipment. My dumbbells are always on the other side of the room and the exercise ball on the other. The worst thing is that sometimes it takes ages to position the exercise ball so that it stays firmly in place and I’m actually able to do something with it.
Another pitfall is that even though it’s possible to do the program at home with an exercise ball, dumbbells and elastic bands, it would be much easier to do it in a gym with proper equipment.
My basic activity level is the same as before I started doing Flavia’s program: my 7-day average is still over 10,000 steps.
My Weight Loss Pictures
Unless I’m completely deluding myself, I think I’ve lost an itty bit of fat since the last time I took pictures (= not much). Lately, I haven’t taken care of my eating as well as I should: the gaps between my meals have grown too long and I probably eat too little. Then I snack and eat candy in the evening. Duh!
I’m happy my progress hasn’t stopped completely.
Next week I’m going on vacation, so I won’t be able to do my usual workouts. I’m not going to stress over my eating either. I just do my best to eat reasonably well.
I’m really excited to see my two little nieces. I plan on having lots of fun with them, perhaps I teach them to plank! 😀
If you’re interested, here’s my first pair of weight loss pictures.
