So I went shopping yesterday! I just loved all of these, but I didn’t buy any of them except the jeans (which was a UK size 14, fuck yeah!) because I didn’t have enough cash on me then. I really loved that blue shirt so maybe next time I go there again I’ll buy it.
Yay motivation to get to ultimate goal!
I can’t believe I lost 50+ pounds.
Squat ‘N’ Side Lift
This is a great move to hit your lower body & core, while boosting your heartrate! Form first, then speed. :)
Focus on your obliques and not your outer hip to really challenge your midsection, and sink as low as possible into the squat. ***Advanced peeps can add weights or a sandbag to make this harder.***
How To Do It
A. Take feet wider than hips width apart, toes slightly facing out. Sink down and back into a squat, keeping weight in the heels of your feet (wiggle your toes to make sure). Keep your chest up and push your hips to the back of the room.
B. Stand, transferring the weight to one heel as you lift one leg out to the side. Keep the standing knee slightly bent for balance, and lift out to the side with a straight leg. Try not to tilt your torso as you lift: stand tall.
C. Lower your leg, sinking back into the squat. Repeat the motion on the other side. Go as fast as you can with good form.
Engage your core and contract through your obliques during the leg lift. The leg lift doesn’t have to be very high to feel the contraction. Start the motion by lifting your hip to your rib cage, squeezing the obliques on that side.
And I’m still at 83.3 kg , so I’M ACTUALLY OUT OF THE 85 PLATEAU aasdjhs;ljsjdsk
YEAH BABY. I’m gonna get to that 80 soon.

It’s a webcam picture, hence the shit quality, but I like this picture.
Off to do some Pilates!
“When things go wrong, as they sometimes will, When the road you’re trudging seems all up hill, When the funds are low and the debts are high, And you want to smile, but you have to sigh, When care is pressing you down a bit,Rest if you must; but don’t you quit.
Life is queer with its twists and turns, As everyone of us sometimes learns, And many a failure turns about, When he might have won had he stuck it out; Don’t give up, though the pace seems slow; You might succeed with another blow.
Often the goal is nearer than it seems to a faint and faltering man, Often the struggler has given up, When he might have captured the victor’s cup. And he learned too late, when the night slipped down, How close he was to the golden crown.
Success is failure turned inside out; The silver tint of the clouds of doubt; And you never can tell how close you are, It may be near when it seems afar; So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit; It’s when things seem worst that you mustn’t quit.” - Anonymous
Or was it more of inches lost rather than weight lost?
