Day 42 of 60 – I’m Melting!

Its Weights & Measures day again; Week Five and the time is just flying by. On the scale this morning, I only lost one pound, but when I got out the tape measure I was thrilled to discover I dropped 3 inches. Here are the details on the Progress Chart.

fat-v-muscleWhen this happened last time I was juicing I looked into the fat vs muscle thing. There is a saying you may have heard that muscle weights more than fat… well that’s silly isn’t it – 5 pounds is 5 pounds. BUT look at this size comparison and its easy to see that as the muscle becomes developed and the fat burns off – you’re definitely taking up less space!

This morning I’m pretty sore after trudging 120#s of potting soil from my car back to my potting bench. My friend Sandy turned me on to Southern Ag in downtown Hendersonville after a relaxing delicious liquid lunch at her beautiful home. I got a third more potting soil for a third less cost and it is a professional blend for container plants.

Sandy is an avid gardener and with her wonderful hubby they’ve turned their entire acre property into a lovely shade garden. With numerous species of Japanese maples (including the rare Lion’s Mane), numerous hydrangea (she gifted me with a gorgeous “Lady in Red”) hostas, huechera, columbine, aguga, fern and much, much more; Sandy knows the scientific names for all of it. Every thing is so neat and mulched and lush with our weather this season, its like going to a magical secret garden – so glad to spend time there!

But getting back to sore – today starts my second week of my RevAbs Beachbody program. Brett, ya killing me, but with results like I’m getting, all I can say is “Rev it high, rev it low, I’m strong (!!) committed and ready to go!”
