Weight update #8

I haven't done a weight update in a while, since after Thanksgiving to be exact, so it's about time. 

So it' seems that I've gained about 1 pound during the Christmas holidays, which honestly I'm not worried about, it's a nothing in my radar! 

It's almost time to take my measurement, since I haven't checked those since October, so here they are: 
Chest: 38" (1 inch up) 
Waist: 32" (the same) 
Hips: 41" (the same) 
Thigh: 23" (the same) 
Arm: 12" (1 inch up.....could it be muscles from weight lifting????) 

As for right now I'm alternating between 4 lb and 10 lb dumb bells to build muscles and resistance. 

I haven't been really good at my walking honestly, I didn't want to be one of those New Year resolutions when I start off super good the first week and then forget about it. I'd rather slowly work it again in my routine once we're settle down from the holiday break. 

I did reward myself with a couple of new things tho. The first one, is a nice slimmer belt to use during exercising. 

It says that it help burn 65 calories in 15 minutes....I'm thinking to start using it while at work, while I walk for 3 hours straight...I think it can really help and see some inches off my waist! 
The only complaint tho is a strong smell of plastic one I opened the box, it's been sitting outside for few days and it still smells....any ideas?? 

And My friend Jodi just gifted me a nice pair of capri athletic pants.....can't wait to try them on to exercise!!

The holidays are always hard to get through, especially if you're watching what you eat and trying to lose weight.

In my opinion, 1+ lb is an accomplishment!! It could definitely be a lot worse so good for you :)

You'll have to let me know how that belt works for you. My suggestion is maybe try to let it air outside for awhile?
