I received an email from a woman named Sharon a few day ago- in the email she wanted to know what areas I was trying to work on and if I could post a picture of my problem area/areas.
I've been meaning to post a photo showing exactly what I hope to change- but I've found myself being a bit bashful about it. I gave myself a bit of a pep-talk, said 'What the hell' and took the shot that's down there.
I will take a closer photo in a few weeks when I feel more comfortable, but so far- this is what I've got. I circled some of the stretch marks, love handles and- what I like to call my other "butt". If you look at the picture you'll see exactly what I'm talking about.
|Still got a tan! (Kind of!) Oh yeah!|
(This is also a PSA to never pierce your belly button. See that awkward slit above my button? Yep. Stupid, stupid, stupid piercing.)
|Seriously. What Kind of SCAR IS THAT? No!!|
So, now you have it- those are the areas I am focusing on. (It would be nice to see my face slim down a bit too! )
I received another email from a lady named Johanna wondering how I will keep track of my goals. The answer to that is pretty simple- I have a weekly planner that I write in. I keep track of each family member's daily info (appointments, school, work, etc.), when bills are due, my blog posting schedule AND then I write down activities I did for that day. So far, I have done 11 "real" push-ups--plenty of the wussy ones though! My form is AWFUL! I have also stayed away from McDonalds Iced Coffee, done Erica's Ab workout twice, done baby yoga and gone on a few walks!
But, I'm having a HELL of a time with stretch mark remedies. If you know of any- shoot me an email! I've started pinning a few home remedies- but I'm skeptical.
I'm really hoping to accomplish each goal I set for September!
Have you guys set any goals this month?
*I also want to say thank you for your emails! Keep them coming!*
Happy Friday and I'll see you guys on Monday! We'll see if I've lost any weight, what goals I've accomplished *PLUS* I'm going to talk to you about my addiction to Spark and host a giveaway that will give you a shot to win some of your own!
Edit: The second photo was added after the initial post because my sister sent me a text message saying my stomach didn't look bad. (Isn't she so sweet!) So, I wanted to add another that showed a little more of what bothers me.
