Today was my 14th day on the Richard Simmons Stomach Formula. I have to admit, I was disappointed when I took my tum pics today, I couldn't really see a difference from last week, and in my front shot I even looked bigger than last week. Obviously that isn't true since I have measurements to prove that I am smaller than on Day 7, but it just kind of sucks! I'm not expecting 6 pack abs in 2 weeks, but I mean....really? I have THE worst stomach, and it always takes forever for any kind of improvement to show there. I know I should be proud that I've stuck with this every day for 14 days, I'm doing something to change my health, yada yada, but I'm honestly just pissed that I will apparently look like the Kool-Aid guy for the rest of my life. Anyway. I am just going to let it go and move on from this, and hope that by freaking day 21 that I would see a difference in my pictures!
I gave that Zumba video I found on YouTube a try today (link below). I like Zumba, but it's hard to find classes close to my house, and it's yet another dancey thing that I'm more comfortable doing in my home since I can wear whatever and modify steps however I need to. Again, I am not a dancer in the slightest, I have a hard time picking up routines, so being able to do it at home is just a better option. This video was pretty decent, maybe a little advanced for me because the routines seem impossible! It's funny, it's from a college in the UK, so everyone has British accents. I might keep poking around for a slightly easier one, because half the time I was standing there going "wait, what?" trying to figure out the routine. I need something that I can keep up with so that I can consistently sweat instead of having to stop. This is why I thank God for YouTube sometimes, so I can try out something like this and determine if I want to use it long term or not!
I also did a walk today, but we have this insane cold front that's about to come in, and the wind is blowing at almost hurricane level gusts. I took Molly for a walk and didn't dress warm enough, so I was pretty miserable the entire time. She wasn't exactly thrilled either, especially because the trees were making so much noise, and the wind was howling around the corners. I wanted to stop after 15 minutes, but toughed it out for 35!
