Everyone's Motivated On Mondays

I left work early today to get to Curves early to beat the Monday rush. Mondays at around 5:30 tend to be their busiest time. I like to have an empty space between me on each side so I'm not waiting for someone to move and someone's not waiting for me to move.

Well today, I got there around 4:30. Did my two rounds, did my stretches, did my crunches, and then went in the tanning booth.

15 minutes later, I come out of the booth, and the place is PACKED! I mean it is loaded with women jumping, running place, working on machines, dancing. I have never seen each station taken! There are like 24 stations, plus a stretching area.

I guess everyone was trying to get their start for the week.

On another note, I have good news and bad news. The good news is I am continuing to see great results! I've lost weight, my clothes are fitting looser, and I'm able to stretch further than I ever have! I even tried on one size smaller when shopping this weekend, and they were fitting! Yeah!!

Now for the bad news. I was trying on swimsuits today for my trip to Phoenix. Here's the problem with swimsuits. The makers assume that if you need a larger size, your boobs will fit in that larger size! Um, not so much!

I think most of the freaking weight I have lost is in my boobs! That's so not fair! It's not like I was that gifted in that area in the first place! It's just not fair! :-(

Maybe I can get my stepmom to sew in some "support" in that area!

Great to see a health club full! And congrats on the continued progress.

As for your chest, are you doing the pec flys machine? If you concentrate on building up your weight stack, instead of on reps, you should build muscle, which will accentuate your bust. When you get in 12-15 good reps, move the weight up. If you concentrate on reps instead of weight, you'll tone, but not build up the muscle.

Good luck!

Congrats on the overall body toning! I must say that I wish my boobs would shrink. I watched Oprah last Friday- the bra show. I am terrified that I am actually in need of something larger than my current "F". Shoot me, shoot me now. :)

You know Sissy, without photographs it's hard to tell about this boob thing. I would think with Harvey being your bloggrandsomething you would know better than to mention your boobs and not have pictures.

Yea, I know Joe....but Munu won't upload pictures that small! :-(

My wife has a similar complaint about swimsuits. Except hers is that she has a hard time finding one that fits her breasts that isn't too large in other places.

That is why they make seperate's now! You can buy tops and bottoms seperately to get the fit you need.

The problem is with the tops out there now the makers are assuming nobody has big boobs. There are no tops out today with underwire support. Pisses me off cause my boobs keep falling out the bottom of the top.

Looks like another year with the same top.

That's exactly my problem Machelle! It's like wearing a damn sports bra! It sucks!

Oh, I do hate that. That is precisely why I do the separates thing. I wear different sizes up top and on bottom. (Pear-shaped figure all the way.)
