Catching Up With Reality

Monday, April 21, 2014

I'm quick to adjust the weight tracker down, but not so good when it goes up, telling myself, "it's just a blip, I'll wait until next week." It's a slippery slope. My weight started creeping up again a couple of months ago - not by much but by maybe ~2 pounds - but then with boot camp and a renewed focus on food it stayed the same for awhile. This week, it finally moved down a pound. I just updated it in Spark. It's actually a pound higher than it was in the tracker, but my last weigh-in was back in February. I'm going to try to be more consistent with tracking. Weighing in once a week (and ONLY once a week!) and recording it once a week. I need to get a tape measure and start taking measurements too, as I suspect that's the bigger difference. My pants feel a little looser - like I don't have to do 50 squats in my jeans when they come out of the dryer to loosen them up. (OH come on you know what I'm talking about!)

Today's boot camp class was another go-at-your-own-pace doozy. Seven exercises, to be completed in order, for as many rounds as possible in 55 minutes. His minimum was three rounds. I completed my third round with one minute to spare. ha! But I did it! And I actually ran the entire half-mile in each round - not a single walking step. (Though I'm sure rounds 2 and 3 were at a damn slow pace!) I told him I may be an overachiever in other aspects of life, but when it comes to boot camp I'm just impressed I managed the minimum. :)


1/2 mile run
30 bicep curls w/band
20 military presses w/band
20 leap frogs (front/back)
10 barrel roll push ups
20 burpees
50 leg raises
