Kettlebell Progress Update #1

I started using the kettlebell on Monday, January 17th.  I also took down my measurements and weight at that time.  Today, I stepped on the scale and also hauled out the old measuring tape.  The results are as follows:

Weight: lost 1 pound

Inches lost:
Total inches lost since last week: 4.5 inches
– lost 1.5  inches on my bust
– lost  1 inch on my chest
– lost 2 inches on my waist
– lost half an inch on my neck
BUT, I gained half an inch on my arm

I am pretty happy with the results so far. I’m keeping track of my calories, doing kettlebells three times a week and a little over two miles in thirty minutes on the treadmill two to three times a week on alternate days. I’m not running again yet as I want to get down 10 pounds or so first. Technically, I’ve lost three pounds since Christmas, so I know I’m headed in the right direction and quite invigorated.

Happy Sunday! Go Packers!

  1. Holy moly. Congratulations! Now I’m even more tempted to track some of those kettlebells down.

    And I join you in your Go Packers!

    …’Cause I think my Steelers will have an easier time against them in the Super Bowl than they would against Chicago 😉

  2. LOL! Hey, I’m a Steelers fan too and I’m pulling for the Steelers to kick major Jets butt tonight! Yeah, I was happy with the results – of course it goes with counting calories but I’m happy. You know what’s really cool is that I am always looking forward to my next kettlebell workout because it IS fun. I also love that my favorite Patagonia cords that were too tight last weekend are now slightly loose. LOVE that. Have a terrific day!!!! Let me know if you do start kettlebells. We can encourage each other.
