Total Gym Total Mom Challenge: Week 8…Final Measurements!

FacebookTwitterPinterestAmazon Wish ListShare

WOW!  Eight weeks sure have flown by and along the way I’ve dropped pounds and inches, as well as gained insight into myself!  Just a few weeks ago, after a few weeks working with the Total Gym, I had a sudden realization that I put entirely too much into my mouth, and I found that with a little sweat, hard work and determination, I could accomplish anything!

When I started the Total Gym Total Mom Challenge, my goal was to lose 15 lbs.  Although I have not reached my goal of 15 lbs, I have:

– Built Muscle

– Lost weight

– Learned to know myself better

– Learned how my body responds to hard work

– Learned to push myself

– Learned that the wrong foods = an unhealthy body

There is some peace, knowing that my Total Gym is just in the other room and it’s at my disposal for daily workouts.  Pushing myself to get started has been the hardest part of this journey, but once on the machine, I love the burn!  I do have to remind myself that working out is good feeling and not a bad one, however seeing the results is what gives me the motivation to keep on.

Would I Purchase the Total Gym After this Journey?
In a second!  The Total Gym offers a convenient, in-home option, that allows you to work out the way YOU want and when YOU want!  I like that freedom!  I would gladly pay double for the Total Gym after this journey!

Final Weigh-in: *****Drumroll Please*****

That’s nearly 7 pounds lost and 7 inches! I’m overjoyed with those results and now we just have to wait to see who of the 10 Total Gym Total Mom Challenge participants will reign as the the Ultimate “Total Mom”! Stay tuned for the results! Oh and did I mention that if I WIN…I’ll be giving away a Total Gym away to one of YOU! Hmmm, must have slipped my mind! So cheer me on!

Oh and do you remember those pants? Well, check this out….

Yep, that’s my after photo on the right in those pants (ignore the fact that my husband is camera challenged)! Their not perfect, but I’m in them and I’m not spilling over…that’s awesome! *Insert super-duper-cala-fraga-listic-happy-dance-here*

    would love to be able to afford one, my heart doctor wants me to excercise more but these are so pricey. I know that when I had my treadmill before it took a dump I felt better when I used it everyday. It are seemed to help my arthritis when I got up and got moving in the mornings on it. You should be really proud of yourself girl.
