A little late in posting, but here it is. This week’s weigh in was pretty meh. I gained .4 lbs, but honestly I don’t even care. Why? Because my dance classes are getting easier, my clothes are getting baggier, and I feel great.
Case in point: Last night I packed my least favorite pair of shorts for dance because they are so tight at the thighs. When I pulled them on they were flapping. Confused, I assumed that maybe I forgot to wash them and they were stretched out? Answer- nope! They were washed. My thigh muscles have just gained that much more definition.
I’m officially down a size in jeans, my winter coat is very loose, and my tee shirts are getting baggy. I really don’t care if the scale isn’t going down right now, because I know that all the work I am doing at the barre is helping me to gain muscle and get more toned.
Next up- sit ups. I need to do more core work, which I hate with a fiery passion. But it has to happen. I might also look into picking up another dance class. Right now I’m at 4.5 hours of class per week. (three 90 minute classes per week). I would eventually like to be up to 10 hours of class per week if I can find the time. Key word there is time.
Is it bad that my dance classes are more fulfilling than my career?
