Fitness Friday #shapelygirl Week 3 Recap

I can't believe I am wrapping up week three of the ShapelyGirl fitness challenge already!(If you missed my beginning  posts you can start here.) I'm still using Debra Mazda's "Let's Get Stepping!" DVD and I'm really loving it. (Full review to follow at the end of the month-so check back!) The month is flying right by and this has been an incredibly long and busy week! I started out the week on Sunday determined to make this week even better than last week. I worked out on Sunday and then turned right around and worked out on Monday! I was so excited I was taking time for me and fitting my workouts in...then the rest of my week went horribly and I haven't had one more chance to work out since Monday. Unless I want to squeeze my workout in after 9 p.m. but I'm way too tired and my teenagers aren't available to babysit if the baby wakes up crying (which he often does) at that hour.
With that said, I still have seen progress. When I am climbing stairs, I feel like I have extra energy. Last night walking across the soccer field leaving my sons' game I felt stronger in my legs, more energetic, like I could just burst out and run the rest of the way to my car!
I told my husband, "I can feel it in the back of my thighs." My pants are fitting loser, my thighs are looking slimmer. Here are this week's achievements, which by the way I was shocked because even though I did work out twice, I feel like I've been a slug all week, but apparently the two days I managed to work out were very effective because in addition to losing a pound, I also lost:

3/4" around my waist
1/2" around my hips
1/4 " around my thigh
no change around my arms or calves though
So there you have it!
On to week Four!
