Good weigh-in (3 weeks in a row!)

Thursday, December 06, 2012

Weigh in this morning 176.2, oh wow! so close to my goal of 175. And down a pound from last week. That makes 3 weeks in a row of weight loss. Two things that really helped me stay within my calorie range is to 1. scrupulously record everything I eat, and 2. write all my foods in my meal planner (tracker) in the morning, ahead of time.

I went to circuit training on Tues, & the instructor was new to me, but she said she recognized me because I was in turbokick and other classes. That was nice that she noticed me & thought I was in good shape. See, I'm 52, and most of the classes are at the rec center of the university, and so everyone else is mostly 18-22. I don't care, I get out there.

Yesterday, Wednesday, I went to turbokick, and it was a new choreography, so it was quite challenging. The instructor was my friend & house sitter.

I finished one class, Whew! glad that's over, and I'm finishing the other this weekend.

I've got to get started doing weight lifting on my own, now that my time with a personal trainer is done (til next semester). I plan to do upper body strength training after work today, and lower body after work tomorrow.

    Congratulations on the weight loss!! You are setting the standards high at 52 for those young men and women in the class. Hopefully they will have your commitment when they reach your age.

    Awesome job!

I'm almost a decade behind you and I'm not sure I could handle turbo kick. ;)
