Today was the my last day of the first four weeks of Brazilian Butt Lift. I have to say that I am very proud of myself for having only postponed 2 non consecutive days in the entire four weeks; one from being sick with a chest cold and the other from having a couple of very good friends in town for a weekend visit. Even still I stayed almost completely on the 6 days on, 1 day off routine up until this last week where is was two days on one-off all week. As penance for the shifted schedule I even threw in an extra workout today.
My grand total of weight lost was 8 lbs. I went from 130 to 122 lbs. in 28 days. No, it is not a huge amount of weight lost, but it is a substantial amount when I know that I have also been adding muscle and not just loosing fat. The total amount of inches lost was 3.5 with 2 of those inches being just from my waist line. Unfortunately my thighs have only made a reduction of about a 1/4” each, but I will take the curves as long as they don’t look like they are filled with pudding.
All in all, I would highly recommend this workout to anyone who wants to tone and sculpt their butt and who gets bored doing the stair-stepper in the gym. The workouts range from 20-50 minutes each and are mostly doubled up on days so that you are doing anywhere from 55-90 minutes each day.
I especially loved the cardio routine because it was a dance routine and not just a bunch of leg lifts or squats and so the time just flew by and became more fun each time. Plus, I love the way that Leandro says the word tornado, it makes me smile each time. Gotta love that Brazilian accent!
Last time I posted my two-week results pictures and today I am going to show you week 4. I really noticed the difference, not just in the look of my body, but also in the way I walk and move. I definitely feel much more balanced than before I started. I also have a feeling that my joints are in much better form than they were four weeks ago. My leg and hip flexibility has gone through a complete transformation and seems to just keep getting better with each day.
Here are my transformation pictures from day 1 to the end of week 4. First the back side and then the front. I apologize for the lack of makeup in these shots, but I’ll be damned if I am gonna get glammed up just to sweat it all off onto my yoga mat.
It doesn’t take a special person to make big changes; all it takes is the want and the the will to do it!
Good luck and happy sweating.
