Extreme Makeover: Me Edition

(To join in on the fun just click on to picture)
Boy this week has gone by fast and to be honest with you I am kind of happy. I am done with the Arizona summer heat ready for cooler weather. I know this won't happen till October but I am so ready. I am also ready for school to be back in full swing and back to routine.
I didn't do so good on the exercise this week while on vacation I did a little bit of walking but not a full blown cardio workout. Eating wasn't at the top of great either. Ate out but tried to make the best choices I could.
My results are no weight loss or gain so that is okay. I have how ever lost 2 inches in my hips, 1/2 inch on each thigh, 1/2 inch on each arm and 1 inch on each calf. The scale is not making me crazy anymore I am seeing the results of cardio and weight lifting and I am very happy with this. I am feeling good despite fighting a sore throat that seems to be traveling through our family along with a feeling of fighting sickness off . I am chugging along on my quest for a fit, firm and lean body.
For this week I will be eating more clean non processed food and not eating out, water intake will be upped, cardio will continue along with the weights but I am going to push myself more with the weights this week.
My main focus right now is to drop the body fat so I can find the muscle that I know is hiding under there. I want definition of my muscles not flab.
Hope everyone else is doing great I will be around to check out blogs a little later. I have a few errands to take care of earlier in the day before it gets too hot outside. Hugs, Bobbi Jo
P.S. I forgot to add this
I did a 14 minute mile on the treadmill!! Not bad for a grandma of 45. LOL!!!

WOW... awesome results on your inches lost! I'm really impressed. I put a lot more stock in the measurements than the weight numbers... 145 lbs of lean muscle is a lot better than 145 lbs of fat, know what I mean!?

You go, girl. :)
