Yesterday, as I went into the locker room work. I was talking to a few colleagues, and at the same time walking to get a pair of scrubs. I noticed that the size that I also wear was gone. I gasp in shock and nervously went for the next size. I shook the pants open and start putting my leg in. Then the other leg, lord and behold they loosely fit my body. What a total surprise. I haven't seen much progress, but putting those scrubs on was my proof.
Keep it moving! Keep on losing!

Today Boot Camp started at 7 this morning. When Danny said we only had to do 3 laps, instead of 6 I knew something was up. Yeah, after running 3 laps we had to go back in the gym and pick the weight size of our choice and head back outside. He then proceed to give us directions. For starts we had to do 30 fast high knees, followed by weighted walking lunges, and after that we had to do 3 sprints. Well after that, we headed back in the gym and he had all the stations up and ready. Here are some of the exercises, slam a 40 pound medicine ball 20 times, 15 Bosu ball lift over our heads drop down and burpee out, 30 squats under a cable with a 30 pound medicine ball overhead lift, rear cross cable delts, 1 set each of low, medium and full range squats on the assist squat machine. After that, we did barbell chest press, straight leg lifts with a pelvic tilt, followed by steps offs for 1 minute. Then dumbbell rows, 20 box jumps, suspended reverse leg lifts. Well, I must say that I passed on this one, because I absolutely have no upper body strength. To end our session we had to do one last sprint. I must add that while doing the 3 different assistant squats while watching my form; I notice that my body is taking shape. I also, notice that some areas are not jiggling as much as before. This is a new experience for me, and as challenging as it may be, I actually like it and look forward to my next session. I go 3 days a week, along with my other workouts. Eight more weeks to go. Keep It Moving! Keep On Losing!

I didn't get much time in during week 2 because of the holiday. I was only able to go once. Monday evening is the beginning of week 3. I will be going again Wednesday and Friday this week. I was able to get one on one training, because nobody else showed up for the class. A couple of the exercises where extremely challenging. I did my best for a starter. The mountain climber with the gliders, and modified push up with a medicine ball. I was still on the tired side, because I went to the gym in the morning. I started off with the stationery bike followed by Zumba after work. I'm not going to get weighed again, until my doctor's visit next week. I can say is that my body is certainly confused about my workouts. Keep it moving! Keep on losing!

Last night I was still struggling with the shoulder pain. I end up taking some Motrin. When I woke up this morning I felt like a whole new person. However, before I went to bed last night I was thinking about not attending Boot Camp Class in the morning. I was up early and went to class and he want me to start off with 2 -3 minutes of walking on the treadmill. I told him I just want to jump right in with the jogging. So, for starters 6 laps and inside we did circuits on the machines, weighed ropes, bent presses, squats, back extensions, just to name a few of our rotations. The hardest ones was pushing a 25lb weight down one end and back and one minute step off from a bench. Overall, I still feel like Wednesday session was the toughest thus far. I thought about going to Zumba this morning, but I will had to pass until next week. I need to allow my body to adjust to new workout. I like to keep it injury free. Keep it moving! Keep on losing!

This morning I went to the 6 o'clock session. Let me tell you it was much harder than day one. It was six of us this morning, and he started us off by running 6 laps around the building. After we got back inside we were instructed to get a mat, kettlebell, free weights, medicine ball, and a step platform. OMG! I hate being on the floor doing exercises. One of the exercises was walking push ups on the step platform. So many different challenging exercises this morning. At the end he didn't give us a break in between, but went right into the next exercise. Followed by one last run around the building. So, we did a total of 8 laps in all this morning. I am pooped! Next session is Friday same time. Still happy with the decision in signing up for the class. I can't wait to see how my body have changed when it's all over. Looking forward to side by side snap shots to share. Keep it moving! Keep on losing!
