New Core Exercise and Weigh In Day

Posted on: May 29, 2013

Let’s start Weight Watcher day with New exercise move for core strengthening that I found on Pinterest

Magic Carpet Ride– check out the link to see video directions.  I have been doing this and can attest that this is a great move to add into your exercize routine and the towel works wonderful on my wood floor.  While I love the ones I found from Melt it off with Mitch, I also like variety and will definitely keep this in my repitore. 


Here is what I wore to my WW meeting.  I am happy to report that I lost 2.6lbs this week and am just 3.2lbs from goal.  I have really been sturggling on what to set my goal for as I know the mirror lies to me, the camera does as well and the weight I thought I wanted is not reasonable when I am strength training and building muscle.  I have been struggling with this since December and just accpeted that I will be 10 lbs above what I originally thought.  No big deal and I am allowed to change that if I so chose… not sure I will.


The wind caught my skirt a little here.... This skirt and white sweater are both thrifted, as is the purse.  My tank top is from Burlington Coat Factory last year and my shoes from Chadwicks last year….


Happiness factor is high any day I get to wear a dress or skirt and feel feminine and sassy.

Linking Up with What I Wore Wednesday and Wardrobe Wednesday

Dear Readers, Anyone going to try the core exercise?  Would love to hear your results if you do.  If getting down on the floor isn’t possible for you are you up for the Melt it off with Mitch moves instead?  How about planking which can be done even in bed as I do them that way? Do you have an exercise you already do that works for you? I was so motivated after my loss this week that I grabbed my husband’s dial style weights and increased from my 8lbs to 15lb and boy I am I feeling it!   Stay tuned in a few weeks when I reach goal, I will be humilitating myself with before and after pictures.  

Gratitude:  I am grateful for the inspiration from H & K Style Journey today by showcasing maxi dresses. I am grateful that I found two maxi dresses while out shopping today one at Burlington Coat Factory and one at Goodwill.  I am grateful for a good WW meeting where we talked about emotional eating and finding new things to do instead of using food to self soothe.  I am grateful that I lost weight this week and feel better about setting a goal.  I am grateful for spending time with a friend thrifting and trying on maxi dresses after my meeting..
