Saturday Fitness Progress: getting ripped


I decided to keep you updated about all my New Year's goals, you can read them here: CLICK. I'll start posting my fitness progress every second Saturday or even just once a month, I'll see how it goes :).

Now, let's talk about my body shape a little. I thought I was full figure (an hour glass with wider waist), that was when I was wider all over, lol. But when I started losing weight (I lost 25 kgs total) I lost it mainly in my upper portion of the body, especially bust line, and I would call my legs and hips my "problem areas". If I gain weight, I gain weight in my lower portion of the body (and face). Also, my bum got bigger from a lot of bum exercises, which is not a bad thing, I had no bum before! So, I'm more of a pear shape now, I guess?

I didn't workout for almost whole month of November, I had Lasik eye surgery on 9th Nov, I took time to recover, I just went for walks every now and then, also I did yoga few times. And I felt like crap, so my diet wasn't the best, I just didn't feel the need to eat clean (it's a mental thing) or I even overate healthy food (I had problem with emotinal eating in the past). So, I lost some muscle definition and strength (I wasn't able to do a regular push up, just from knees). I started working out on 12nd Dec again, mainly high intensity interval training. I took measurements and I measured myself after one month. Here are my results (all measurements are in centimeters):


12 Dec 2012
9 Jan 2013
Upper arm
32
31   (-1 cm)
Bust line
102
96   (-6)
Waist
88
84   (-4)
Hips
107
105   (-2)
Thighs
64
63   (-1)
Left calf
44
43   (-1)

That's 15 cm total, woohoo!
I don't weight myself, I have my own philosophy on that. And yes, I have huge-ish calves, left one is wider for 2 cm ^^. And I'm 1,62 meters high or should I say small (but I have a big heart!:)).

I started doing more cardio, leg lifts, squats, lunges and planks ... these exercises are great for defining abs.
I am still doing modified version for pull ups, but I can already see that my back muscles got stronger.
Head stand is still just a half head stand :P.
And cellulite? Well, still visible on my legs, but skin is a lot smoother!

And this is how I look right now:


Sorry for a crappy picture and of course I don't have the before picture, but I'll compare them with my next SFP (Saturday fitness progress that is :)).

Happy healthy weekend to you all!!

  5. Good luck with getting ripped :) I think keeping track of your measurements is something I'll do too, too many girls put too much emphasis on the scales but they aren't noticing that they are losing inches! x

    1. Exactly, if you gain muscle you probably won't lose any weight. Feeling and measurements are the most important thing to me.
      Thank you!

  14. You look amazing and I absolutely admire you for all the effort you put in! But it shows ;) I know how hard it can be - I lost 18kg since last year and now I can't wait to get really in shape :D So, I really like these kind of posts, can't wait for the next one :D I'll start my training again in February and maybe I should do some similar posts about it then? hmm .. :P
