The finale of my 4 week challenge was actually a let down. Granted it was the holidays and all that but, I had still hoped for better. Besides that my poor brother in law was aching all over from doing a very intense workout a few days ago and then he went moshing at a concert and got a little beat up. So he was down and out of it. To make matters worse, I injured my foot about 5 minutes into the exercise after driving an hour and a half to get there. But here are my results: Keep in mind the weight was taken in the evening instead of the morning. The morning this was taken I was 150, and my start weight was 156

I don't quite understand how my thighs increased in size by two inches each. Even if I was building leg muscle I should be losing fat in that area. Since I have injured my foot though, I am going to start doing Pilates and hopefully that will help take some inches off of my butt and thighs. I have always hated my butt and thighs, they are a problem area for me, even when I was in high school and was in my healthy weight range.
So Monday I am going to try to do 30 minutes of Pilates every day and hopefully that will help to strengthen my core and help me to continue to lose weight even though I can't move around too much at the moment.
