Waist Watcher Wednesday: Week 5!

This is a weekly link party for everyone wanting to get back in shape, where we can post/comment our stats and offer each other helpful advice, workout ideas, what works for you, what doesn't and just generally support each other so that when we think about giving up we will have bloggy friends to lift us up again!

So, I will post one inspirational thing, a workout that I want to try, or something workout related every week, and I encourage you to do the same! Let's inspire each other into getting healthy this year and making our waists disappear!


My inspirations this week come from Pinterest. I have a goal, a project/daily reminder, and a new exercise to try:

I've always been jealous of the girls that are skinny enough that they done have a belly even when they sit down, and are skinny enough that their inner thighs don't touch. That's where I'd ultimately like to end up, but I know it may not be entirely realistic. I just love food too much.

I want/need a daily reminder of what I have to lose. So, I'm thinking of making something like this to put on my nightstand (or the wall behind it) to remind me every morning when I look at the alarm clock, what I have to lose (and gain!)

This article looks great, and this particular exercise looks effective but DIFFICULT! I'm up for a challenge! Anything that works my abs without having to do crunches or situps!!

How did you do this past week?

Me? I'd like to say I got back out there, but in all fairness and honesty, I didn't. I'm still trying to make excuses. The truth is, my heart just hasn't been in it the past few weeks, but don't worry! I will get back out there. If my Hubby hadn't have decided to take a nap Tuesday, I would've gone for a run. I really wanted to, but my baby comes first. Oh well.

    I love that idea for the visual from Pinterest. I might have to look into that too.

    Love the idea of the glass stones in the cups, what a great visual. Don't be too discouraged by the no change, I'm in the same boat right now, even though I've eaten so well this week!
