730... That’s how many calories my HR monitor said I burned in 60 minutes yesterday during Step… and my goodness you should have seen my face afterwards, talk about beetroot-face! I really gave it everything I had, I mean I was absolutely spent afterwards, and I was even a bit naughty and left before the abdominal and cool-down tracks. I then came home and took my measurements and was pleasantly surprised to have lost 2cm off my hips in the last two weeks! Yay! I do think I overdid it though, my eyes felt like they were bulging out of my head for about an hour afterwards, it felt very weird, and I contemplated calling the eye surgeon, but it went away. I was so tired for the rest of the day too – could not stop yawning!

I took a photo of my arm last night – I’m loving getting a little bit leaner because I start to see arm dents appear again. I took this photo in a bathroom mirror, with the heat lamps on… the heat lamps just put the right amount of shadow on and I laugh at myself because I stand there brushing my teeth every night posing my left arm until I can see some definition LOL! I just LOVE shapely female arms with some muscle, so its nice to get a bit of visual proof that all the hard work is slowly paying off. Still a ways to go yet before I reach my goals, lower body is where I need to see more improvements.

Tomorrow is hairdresser day… I may just chicken out yet, not sure! OH says he thinks my face is the wrong shape for wavy hair… we’ll see I guess!!

Hope you’re all having a fantastic weekend!

Great job on the workout Hils! I envy your arm LOL, it's very nice!

Hope you like the new hair do! Would love to see a pic!

Just letting you know also that I'm very excited! I'm now coming to Brissie, the Gold and Sunshine Coast in July this year for a holiday! My younger sis and her boyfriend are moving to the Gold Coast from NZ in May so will be neat to see them! I intend to do either the Gold Coast half marathon or 10km on 6 July.

I know it's ages away but it would be cool to meet somewhere if possible!

Hey Hiliary, I wanted to catch up with you at the gym this morning. I wanted to talk to you about the HR monitor you bought.
