Progress Update and A New Day

I woke up extra early this morning (of course, it being a day I could “sleep in”, Rina showed up in our room at 0500!) and when I finally decided to get out of bed (at 0700!) this is what I was privy to outside:

I had a nice hot shower and decided to take my measurements today (normally, it would be tomorrow) since we have a fun-filled family day planned for tomorrow and the last thing I’ll want to do is be in front of the computer! What a surprise it was to see all those green squares! (Remember, green = loss, red = gain and yellow = same as before).

4 months into Crossfit

4 months into Crossfit

That’s a total of 7.25″ loss on my body in the past 4 months! As Ben said so well this morning:

It only took 16 weeks of wall balls!

Love him! Well, it’s more like 16 weeks of wall balls, push-ups, thrusters, squats, pull-ups, box jumps, etc, but you know all that already! Finally, some good news! I’ve been working hard at the Box and tried to be more watchful of what I eat and I can finally see results! I’m not quite where I want to be body shape-wise, but I’m getting there! I honestly don’t care about the number on the scale anymore, but since I was tracking it from the get-go, I figured I should keep tracking it. I’m more focus on my body and how it looks like. This morning, I was even able to fit in my “not-so-fat” jeans. They are tight on the legs and fit ok-ish at the waist. They are a size 12, but I feel good in them and that’s all that matters to me right now. 🙂 Baby steps! After all, I wouldn’t want to morph overnight, that would mean I would need a whole new wardrobe and I can’t afford one right now!

Here is the visual of my Day 1 vs Month 4:

Not yet a “gun” show, but results are visible!

Excuse the messy background, it’s not an easy task to take selfies on a timer with 2 children running around! 😉

On the family front, we are interviewing a couple more nannies and hopefully, we can have someone reliable soon to start working with us! As for tomorrow, we have decided to go for a hike, even if it’s cold outside. It will require a bit more logistics, but I’m ready to be out in nature with my girls and the man of my dreams! It’s been a while since we have gone hiking and since I’ve spent some time with my hubby other than on the couch, in front of the TV. I miss him and cannot wait for some quality-time tomorrow! I’ll be sure to take some pics and post a few on here!
