Hard work pays off…


February 7, 2013 by ukdesperatehousewifeusa


I am little bit proud of myself, with all the weights I’ve been lifting and the cardio I’ve been doing, and it’s beginning to pay off…

Look! A little show of muscle in the abdominal region!

Can you see? Not quite complete, of course, but a little faint outline of abs, me thinks!

Note to self: do not take pics of stomach in studio when builders are outside….

Shall we see the before and after pics to remind ourselves of six weeks of hard work?

How exciting! And, yes, that is a smug smile on my face!

Even after an abominable eating day on Super Bowl Sunday, things are beginning to shift and move and take shape.


I shall not reward myself with chocolate, however, but with a protein drink.

Interestingly, my weight is not shifting, but this is not what I’m after. It’s all about training and toning, and that, my friends, is where it’s at 🙂

    You are not losing weight b/c you are gaining muscle mass and burning fat. Muscle weighs more than fat. You look great. Keep it up!

  2. Nice work…hard work does payoff! Keep doing it up right…and watch out for the builders lol
