Working out is working out.

I've been working out for a couple weeks now doing weights and walking.

I'm not sure how soon you are supposed to notice results but I can feel it in my legs and arms. I had this roll of fat on my right upper arm that is not as bulgey as before. I did some scientific testing (me standing in front of a mirror poking at it and moving my arm different ways) and it appears smaller. I also noticed that my butt seems...firmer? Perkier? I don't know.

There was a little a little roll under my butt cheeks that is gone now. So, yay squats and lunges.

Today I worked out and when I sat on the leg press I actually thought my thighs looked nice. They had a nice shape to them that wasn't there before.

It may just be in my head. But even if that's the case I will take it. I've spent so much of my time hating my body that it feels nice to see things I like. It's an odd shock to feel that way after spending so much time feeling bad.

I'm going to stick to it. I feel awesome.

Plus, on workout days, I get to eat more. Bonus!


  1. This is so true and it is such a good feeling when you are starting to see (and feel!) results! Keep up the good work Jen!

  2. BTW, I love Boston Terriers too! I'm hoping to adopt one by the end of the year (once we get our fence built!)

  3. Thank you!! And Bostons are awesome! As I type this mine is hogging the bed and basically pushing me out :)
