Checking in

It’s been two months since I last wrote, and I have to say that aside from the past two weeks, I’ve been pretty active on the exercise front.

So much in fact that when I last attended boot camp, way back on June 11, I worked up the courage to get my measurements done for the first time since I joined the class.

At first, I was really disappointed to learn that I didn’t lose any weight – but I didn’t gain either, so go me!

Then my trainer told me that I went down considerably in inches – all around, so go me part deux!

Then she told me that I was down 7 percent body fat, which fueled me through the rest of the class so much that I missed the rest periods and just kept on holding planks and doing abs. Ahh, how far I’ve come from the post where I wrote that I was the only one in the class who couldn’t do even one plank.

Then I shamefully missed two weeks of classes, and like a dog with a tail between its legs, I dragged myself back tonight, and though I felt terribly out of shape and out of breath, I made it through, so glad that I did make myself go tonight – and looking forward to going back at least two more times this week.
