BBG Weeks 1-4

2.12.2016

One month of the Bikini Body Guide is finally done! I modified some of the moves because I didn't have a medicine ball or well, strength to a regular push up. I'm actually feeling stronger in my arms but a push up is something I still can't do with proper form haha.


I'm not a fan of doing burpees. I swear this guide is just a combination of all the moves you do not want to do. I probably did 50 or so reps each routine that required it. It actually got easier to do by the second week, if you could believe that!

Only the first week left me with TOO sore legs to walk. My stomach felt like it was constantly engaged for 2 days straight after abs day. Tracked all of my food with myfitnesspal @tinymooon and I'm aiming to drink 1.5-2 liters of water every day.

My current goals: ab definition, arm strength and improved endurance.

Here are the before and afters:






First weigh-in was at 115lbs.  I managed to drop 2 lbs after a week so that was interesting.

Measurements before: 35-26-36  and now: 34-25.5-35

I can see a difference from the side and the lower belly pouch was a 2 inch loss! I struggled with bloating this month so I may need to really stick with my water goal.

Today's weigh-in is at 118.5 lbs. I'm curious to see if this will continue to gain and eventually drop a little like last time. Give me muscles!

I'm going to try to figure out how to squeeze blogging into my schedule more. I recently added another side job thing that I'm hoping will turn into something more and rack up some savings. I've got to move and live with a million dogs on my puppy farm.

New Wig & Delicate Tangles Flower Hair Extension

2.05.2016
I'm trying to not be a vampire while it's cold and rainy outside. I got this new wig from eBay since most of mine are either dark purple or dark brown. This one is still purpley but at least it's brighter? I have no idea what other colors would work on me.



The roses are a flower braid hair extension from Delicate Tangles. It has a clip (like hair extensions) and there's 3 clear strands that hang from it with several flowers per strand.

I didn't even know this was a thing until I somehow stumbled on it somewhere, maybe Instagram. I like it more than just using individual flowers on hair clips because I only need to worry about one clip! I got the 10" length and I was sure it was going to work with my real hair but my hair is still not long enough. I'm pretty sure my hair stopped growing a year ago, probably because of all my health issues.

Do you like flower braid hair extensions or do you prefer hair clips or headbands?



Blythe Reroot

2.03.2016
I'm not really into dolls but I do like trying new things so I thought I'd try customizing a blythe fakie for fun. I started off with a reroot because I like pretty fibers!!


I bought a rubber scalp from Cool Cat and used about 1oz of pink lilac ombre teeswater locks from LiaRiabaRussa and 1.2oz of purple wensleydate locks from PinkLambUK!


I really like the texture and the width of the locks as they are so I didn't want to brush them out or make the plugs much smaller.


Thatching the partline.



I wanted to keep the length so I did the knot method and used a rooting tool to make all the holes and then I pulled the strands through with a 1.30mm crochet hook.


Now I need to change the eye chips and paint the eyelids. I might try carving the face and changing the eyelashes some other time.
