Recovery week so far has been awesome. I’m seriously in love with recovery week. I love the workout and really strengthening the core. You really feel like you are doing something positive to your body. I also like that you are not supposed to over do it. It lets me relax a little.
I totally cheat during the shoulder burner things at the end. By the end of the “flapping” of the arms I’m ready to collapse, so I sit (still in plie) at the very edge of my short couch, so I’m basically in the same position, but I’ve got something holding me up. I know, I know, but I still feel my core working while doing the exercises to the end and my goal is to get rid of the couch.
As far as weight loss goes, nothing more. Some people would probably be like, “what? how is that humanly possible to be at the end of week 4 and not have lost more than 5 lbs?” Unfortunately, this is my life. It’s nearly impossible for me to lose weight AT ALL. I’m the gal who went on the HCG diet and gained weight…seriously! I know I’m losing inches, though, and that is very important. My favorite jeans I shrunk in the wash a month ago finally fit again! I can totally see a difference in my torso and according to the measuring tape, I’ve lost about 1.75″ in the thighs- which is HUGE!
Anyways, I’m still happy, still going and already starting to plan which Beachbody program I want to do next.
