My first week of T25 – done! Here are my first set of stats as well as before and after photos:
One week in and even though I have lost no weight and apparently gained an inch in my waist (huh?) I was happy to see a small decrease in my hip measurement. Maybe it is my imagination, a bit of wishful thinking, but I also feel like my abs are already starting to show more definition. This is great because my abs are an area where I really want to focus. Especially my lower abs which haven’t bounced back completely after my (emergency) c-section.
This week went really well. I didn’t have any issues fitting in my workouts even though work is super crazy right now. Hopefully this will continue since skipping days is the easiest way to get derailed from a new fitness routine. I have noticed that my left knee is bothering me. Maybe it is all of the jumping, the shoes I am wearing or more likely a combination of the two. Currently I am wearing Nike Lunarglide 3’s which do not seem to be providing me with the lateral stability I need for these workouts. After some research I found that Shaun T says that he does this workout (and Insanity) in socks. Well there is no way my knees will be able to handle these workouts without shoes, especially since I am doing them in the basement on a concrete floor, but maybe a pair of minimal shoes would work well. I’ll be sure to report back what shoes I end up getting in case anyone else is having this same issue.
