So, I've had to switch up my rest days on the 28-Day Bootcamp DVD. I pretty much have no TV access on the weekends since all the family is home. So I went ahead and did days 4 & 5 between today and yesterday. I can already tell a difference in my stamina and ability. I found it a lot easier to do moves that previously I would be having a lot of trouble doing. However, I can also tell what the lack of a rest day has done to my body. During a lot of the lunges, and especially the squats, my knees have just not wanted to work! They are so sore! I've always had bad knees anyway... kinda runs in the family (thanks, Grandpa...) so anything involving the use of my knees takes me a while to get used to.
On another positive note, I have noticed that much of my muscle tone in my arms, and especially in my legs is returning. I have also noticed my "glutes" even gaining a bit of toneage! That's ALWAYS been a problem area for me, so needless to say, I was a bit happy.
I wish I had the patience though to wait on my stomach fat to melt away. I gained a LOT around my midsection during exams, and now I look in the mirror and feel like it's just STUCK there! I'm trying to be patient and wait for it to come off gradually as it should, but I'll be honest, it's NOT easy when swimsuit season starts next month, and you have a wedding dress to fit into in two months (*mini heart attack*)! I know I'll get there, but I really really hope it hurries up!
