September Inches

I completely forgot to post my end-of-September measurements, but ending Body Revolution and 1 week into a combo of Killer Abs and Yoga Inferno, here are my inches:

August 2013                                     September 2013              
Right bicep: 10.5 inches                             Right bicep: 10.5 inches
Left bicep:10.5 inches                                 Left bicep: 10.5 inches
Right thigh: 23.5 inches                              Right thigh: 23 inches
Left thigh: 22.5 inches                                 Left thigh: 22 inches
At my bellybutton: 32 inches                      At my bellybutton: 30.5
Hips: 35 inches                                            Hips: 34.5
Waist: 27 inches                                          Waist: 26.5 inches

So I've only lost 3 pounds, but I lost a totally of 4.5 inches in 4 weeks!  I'm happy with my results.  Size 2 jeans, here I come!

So everyone online is talking about Jillian's new butt-kicking workout, Yoga Inferno, and of course, I had to give it a try.  I went to Target and got the last copy and WOW, Inferno is right! (Jillian filmed this DVD in the desert and they had to wear sunglasses throughout the work out because it was so bright they couldn't see anything.)

You know I'm a big fan of Jillian so I've tried all the DVDs and this one may not necessarily be the most difficult for me, but it definitely makes me sweat the most.  I've only gotten through Level 1 so far, which consists of using body weight for strength training while moving through stretches and throwing in a few 30 second cardio intervals here and there.

Your heart rate goes up and down, up and down, every muscle in your body is working through every move, and you've got sweat dripping down your body.  It's certainly a challenge to find the strength to not cheat the moves, and afterwards, every muscle in my body is weak and screaming, but thanks to the stretches throughout the workout, I didn't wake up sore the next morning.

If you're looking to step up your yoga game, if you liked Yoga Meltdown, of if you're looking for a new workout that will keep you on your toes and constantly working to improve and never let you be bored...then check out Jillian Michaels NEW Yoga Inferno!
