Measurements & Before Picture...

Nope!  Sorry, just can't do it :oP!

Back in February, I took measurements prior to starting an Advocare 24 Day Challenge.  By the end of the 24 days, I had lost 12 inches and 10 pounds!!  I was thrilled to be back into clothes I hadn't worn since getting in shape after Kyle was born.  I took my sweet time on that too.  It was a solid 16 months after him, and with Rachel only 7 months.  In both instances, I picked an exercise goal and literally ran with it.  In 2009, it was a mini-gym-triathalon, and this time my first 5K.

Somehow though, the summer has gotten away from me.  Exercise was few and far between.  I didn't really gain any weight or inches back, but I just didn't feel great.  With the 30 Day Shred, the only goal is completion.  There is no test at the end.  The test will be those final measurements and pictures.

I am really not a shy person about my body.  I think I look pretty good for a nearly 40 year old with 2 kids under 5.  But I am a logical person, and I personally want to see the numbers and the change before I share it with you.  I will give you a teaser.  I took measurements and pictures on day 1, then measurements again on day 8 (first day of new Advocare Challenge), and pictures again on day 10 (last day of level 1).  At the second measurement, after only 7 days of The Shred, I had lost 5 inches overall.  And the pictures a few days later definitely show improvement.  Here's to the next set of pictures and measurements!!
