So, let's get right down to it. This is my 3rd week of bootcamp. I'm at the halfway mark, and can only hope my results get better in the next 3 weeks. Before I post my weight, I will say that this week is a "hopeful thinking" kind of week. Aunt Flo is here to visit this week, and that always means a weight gain for me. My usual weight gain when she's here is 2lbs. So...
This week's weight: 223lbs (-2lbs since last week). That means if I'm carrying the usual 2lbs of bloat weight, that number could be quite a bit smaller next week...keep your fingers crossed.
This week's measurements:
Waist: 39 1/2" (-1")
Chest: 43" (I'm an idiot and haven't been measuring my chest correctly. I think I started out at 44" at bootcamp)
Hips: 47" (no change)
Bicep: 15" (no change)
Thigh: 23" (no change)
Calf: 17" (no change)
So, this week's results aren't the greatest in the world - but I'm happy about another inch being gone from my waist. The speculation I have from no change to my biceps, calfs, and thighs is the fact that I'm starting to tone muscle in those areas which is "replacing" the fat.
Yesterday was a good day for me. I managed to score a couple of extra additions for my home gym from Craigslist. One of the items was a stair stepper. The other is a full set of dumbells, a couple of rubber weights, and a set of push-up bars. I'll post a pic of the stair stepper tomorrow (as it's not in my gym as of yet) but this is a pic of the weights:
I feel like I got a great bargain - cause I snagged all of this for $20!! The guy also had a treadmill that I feel in love with. It was top of the line with all the bells and whistles. It retails for about $2000 and he was wanting $400. I thought it was a great bargain, but just one that was a little out of my range - so I had to skip that great offer. I already have a treadmill, so I should be greatful for the stuff I have.
I managed to pull myself out of bed this morning for another great yoga session. It was much more difficult today, because I'm still "recouping" from Monday...but I got through it with not too many moderations.
Today, I'm going to reorganize my office/ gym so that I am able to use all of my new equipment - and the old stuff. Tonight guarentees to be another hot and grueling night at bootcamp. Before leaving the gym this morning, I saw the morning bootcamp doing circuits....I left feeling a little nervous. Hopefully, I can suck it up and get through them.
Till next time. ;)
