Weight loss challenge phase 2

Monday, May 27, 2013

Tonight was registration evening for the new weight loss challenge.
Im so SUPER excited to get going, but nothing happens till next week Monday evening which is when everyone receives their analysis and feed back on diet etc.

We were 11 strong tonight for this challenge and 3 couldn't make it due to their pool car not starting. So we will be 14 next week. What really slayed me about these women, is only 3 seemed to be overweight (myself included) the rest look more like trim, fashionably dressed young ladies???? There are two categories one is straight weight loss and then any muscle mass drop will count against your weight loss figure and the other is a muscle mass gain & visceral fat loss and again any muscle mass loss will count against them. So maybe we are in different categories?
Guess next week Monday we will all know more.

I'm champing at the bit wanting to go back to boot camp too. So what I've decided is tomorrow after my study has been done and company enjoyed, I plan on going to a nearby shopping center which has several stairs at the back of the building which takes you to the loo. Considering all the stairs, there are seldom people that use those loos, folks normally just pinch till they get home LOL
Tomorrow I plan to run/walk/crawl/hobble (probably in that order) up and down those stairs for 5-10 minutes and then see what my chest feels like. If I start coughing...I'll know boot camp is still off. I hardly cough now, so maybe the slight cough is in fact a post nasal drip which could be the remains of the cold and as such boot camp would be good for me then, kind of blow the cobwebs out. Tomorrow will tell me what I need to know.
I think I've gone from couch potato to boot camp junkie. Better...infinitely better.

I think these sentiments are so true....

.... therefore I will use them to grow and make such big changes that I go from caterpillar to butterfly.....regardless of how long it takes me.

    It's like you are getting younger not older. Which is what two friends and I were discussing. We discussed living in such a remote area and the fact that we just never get younger always older. Eventually we will be forced to move to a less remote area for health care and to get the help for seniors that is available in this country. Jokingly we moaned that it is not fair but you seem to be doing the opposite. Way to go!!!!

    Can't wait to find out what the new weight loss challenge is about. Interesting stuff!

    It's good that you are pacing yourself and not wanting to push yourself too hard since you have had a cold.

    I started my second month of "Insanity" which is basically a boot camp on DVD. I do it 6 days a week. It is seriously KICKING my butt! I have only lost 9 pounds to date, but I am so much stronger and I can last longer each workout.

    I know you will be top winner in the class again!
    YOU GO GIRL!!!

    As you know, stair climbing is excellent exercise. You are wise to pace yourself...and you may be sore in the legs if you do a lot of flights. My goal each day is 10 flights.preferably more. My top goal met was 75 flights in one day...and I paid for that one. The next goal from FitBit is 100 flights in one day. emoticon Maybe you can keep track of how many flights you climb..might be interesting to know. emoticon
