I have to say I have really surprised myself on sticking with it. I know it has only been 2 1/2 weeks but usually by week 2 I am fading. Boot camp has been challenging and rewarding so far for me. My body is freaking out. I pulled muscles in my thigh in week 1 and 2. This week, I have been having issues with my ankles BUT I realize it is just my body adjusting to the workload. I am not allowing myself to stop.
A little motivation for me to keep continuing is my clothes are fitting better. I also feel healthy. I did an unofficial measuring this morning and in 2 1/2 weeks I have lost 1 1/2 inches on my waist, 1 1/2 inches on my hips, 1 inch on my thighs, 1 inch on my arms, and 1 inch on my chest. Unbelievable!
My food intake is getting better. I am eating less junk and even starting to purchase more 'whole' foods as my trainer calls them. When I buy eggs and meat I now look for 'vegetarian fed' on the packaging.
This has been a true transition for me and I am making positive changes. When boot camp ends, I am trying to decide if I am going to sign up again or take what I have learned and just do classes for a month at the YMCA. I would like to see if I can put in to practice all that I have learned but I am also not sure I feel ready to make all of the decisions on my own. It's all about baby steps for me to ensure my success.
I think I am finally getting it right.
