One More Workout

Today is the last day of the 30-day challenge, and the day before my last workout before my drop week. When I started this program I didn't think I would do the drop weeks. I was like, "maybe I'll just keep going during that week. I won't need it." Well, I definitely need it. During the past couple weeks I've noticed that I've been taking longer to recover, I've been getting stiffer and just progressively run down. I can definitely now see the wisdom of taking a break to let your body reset, recharge and heal. My upper back between my shoulder blades and my shoulders were getting especially sore. Fortunately I was able to get some cupping done earlier this week, which helped a lot. Cupping uses glass or plastic cups and either a flame or a suction gun to create a vacuum and suck the cups to the skin. It's really, really great at relaxing tight muscles. Also, sometimes it leaves marks.

I lost a total of 0% of my starting weight.

Sophie is a rock star and lost 6 pounds for a total of 3.07% weight loss.


  1. Wonderful job Sophie!! So proud of you!
    Tyler- did you happen to do before and after measurements? Are the promised pictures of the marks cupping makes or physique changes?

  2. We didn't happen to do before and after measurements. Tyler's picture is the cupping marks.

  3. Pretty impressive marks! Glad it helped with the soreness though.
