I got up at 4:30AM this morning to try a Boot Camp class at the fitness center, run by the personal trainer who lost 200 lbs. It is M W F. I can do a 5-6AM or 5-6PM class. The downside, besides the time, is it's an additional $100 a month. But it's still MUCH cheaper than working with the personal trainer 1 on 1. There were about 4 other people this morning.
On Fridays the Boot Camp is in the pool. We did swimming, water walking, balancing, used the bands for bicep curls, did wall push ups, dips, crunches, squats. I think my muscles are going to be tired later. I was much slower than others which made me a little sad, but they all aren't lugging around as much weight either. I didn't want to participate in the obstacle course that used the water slide. (I don't much like them to begin with, but I was forever terrified of how I looked when Eddie Murphy did that horrible movie being a FAT person and the trailer had the joke of him/her going down a waterslide in all her fat glory) I liked going early, but not sure if it is sustainable. I think I'll try another class next week to see what the non pool class is like.
I do know that when I exercise early it sets up my mind to eat better. Kind of like I'm not going to ruin what I've started on doing. Whatever works, right?
My weigh in today was 266.9 which means I've regained 4-5 lbs. I'd say at least 2 or so is water retention because I'm expecting TOM and I ate a half of canister of Pringles yesterday. But the other 2, I could legitimately say those are real. We shall see. So I'm resetting my goals. I'm going to do 1 lb a week for December (with all the food we are around during the holidays I think this is safer. If I do more - GREAT!) and then go back up to 2 lbs a week in January
