Who Am I?


Thursday, March 10, 2011

Thank you for all of the sweet words after my last post. At the end of my personal training session yesterday, my trainer suggested I weigh myself using the gym scale. Keep in mind, I had my sweaty gym clothes on, had a hard 30 minute work out plus 30 minutes on the treadmill, and had eaten breakfast. Anyway, he told me to close my eyes, and a couple seconds later told me I had lost 4 lbs.

WHAT?!

This was quite an eye opener, and a reminder that the number on the scale fluctuates and cannot be trusted by itself. I told my personal trainer that I wanted to do another print out of my information (BMI, etc.) and take my measurements with the tape measure again, because I'm going to rely on that. I can only imagine though - if the scale says I lost 4 lb. under those circumstances, can you imagine the loss first thing in the morning, after bathroom, before breakfast, with no clothes?! That's exciting.

I have one more class in a couple of hours before my spring break starts. I am going to continue my schedule with the gym and my internship, and filling the gaps with studying and catching up on school work. Basically, I am taking an entire day for each class to outline, quiz myself, and otherwise prepare for finals. This weekend I'm taking a break, and will hopefully get to use next weekend for the same thing. If not, I can use those extra two days for catch up.

Why did I title this entry "Who Am I?" As my personal trainer and I were discussing good classes for me to try out, I found a flyer for a 6 week, hour long boot camp starting next week. For $99, I can get my butt kicked twice a week. So now, here's my new gym schedule:

- Monday - Abs class, 30 minutes cardio
- Tuesday - Boot Camp
- Wednesday - Class or Strength Training, 30 minutes cardio
- Thursday - Boot Camp
- Friday - 30 minutes cardio, 30 minutes with personal trainer

It combines several things I'm working on - training for my 5k, strength training, getting in more personal training (this makes it cheaper, so I can do it more times per week with the boot camp). And I can still take classes.

I hardly recognize myself. I think I can officially say that I am addicted to getting fit, building my endurance, and rocking my body!

    This is great!! You are changing your focus and it has more direction, more purpose and the qualifiers of success are more real! emoticon
Thanks for your support too. I have needed it more than I realized.

    emoticon We have a boot camp less than a mile from the house, but I am considering a gym membership instead. Hubby thinks it's funny that I made it all the way to goal without joining a gym. Now that I am maintaining, I find that I want the variety and time away by myself to focus on me. I hope you enjoy your boot camp. It sure looks like crazy fun!

    You can do it!!!! I hope you write a blog about your upcoming boot camp experience. I'm curious to know what it's like.
