I can’t believe it almost 4 weeks since I started this workout plan, hasn’t time flown. I officially started exercising using the Results with Lucy plan around 4 week ago after being hit with the most dreadful flu for 2 weeks prior to that. I haven’t been doing this plan alone, and have dragged my lovely Mum into doing the videos with me every week.
Our plan is as follows:
Tuesday – 20-25 minutes of videos
Thursday – 20-25 minutes of videos.
Healthy eating and cutting out the junk food as much as possible apart from the friday treat of a takeaway.
It doesn’t sound as though we have done much I bet, but the results speak for themselves and you can see my current measurements below. Over the next 4 weeks, we intend to up the ante with the videos, building up the average time each week by 5 minutes. Hopefully by the end we will be fit enough to do around 60 minutes of exercising without huffing and puffing on the sofa for a rest.
I love the Results with Lucy videos as each one is extremely different to the last and you can really mix up your workouts this way. We have recently been enjoying a killer ab workout, a HIIT cardio workout and then a dance workout to finish off and wind down. The site makes it easy to save these onto your favourites so they are easy to find and get straight into your workouts each day.
My original stats are as follows:
Weight – 8st 6lb or 118lb (remember I don’t want to lose weight)
Measurements of the areas that bother me most:
Waist – 25 inches but not very toned
Hips – 35.5 inches and again not very toned
Thighs – 19-20 inches each leg ” “
My 4 week stats are like this:
Weight – 8st 3lb or 115lb (I am not trying to lose weight so this surprised me but I have been working on this number increasing again going forward)
Measurements or the areas that bother me most:
Waist – 24.5 inches (0.5 inch lost)
Hips – 34.5 inches and improving loads
Thighs – 19 inches but looking more toned
As you can see, I’ve lost some pounds and some inches which in 4 weeks, I’m thrilled with. The main result that has shocked me the most is the weight loss. My intention is not to lose weight but to tone up and gain more muscle. I started noticing my size getting a little smaller and decided to start monitoring my calories for a couple of weeks. The first thing I noticed was that I’m burning more than I’m actually eating which is completely unhealthy. In order to counteract this loss, I’ve decided to have a protein shake from My protein twice a week before working out. I’m also going to increase my meal size but stay on with the healthy eating plan as I have bags more energy.
I will be posting another update in 4 weeks time so keep your eyes peeled and follow my progress with the great Solo plan from Results with Lucy.
*as with my original post 4 weeks ago, I am reviewing this plan in exchange for my honest feedback, all opinions and blog posts are my own.*
