All I’ve been talking about is my training, which has been going great. Three days at the Sandusky Y with my personal trainer Joyce Niedzwiecki this past week.
Another day, I went to the Norwalk Rec to swim, which only has two lap lanes and they were full, so I took part in a water aerobics class until a lane opened up and then started swimming laps.
I made it back to Anytime Fitness for another TRX class, which kicked my butt yet again. Side planks are killing me. I don’t know what it is, but they are so hard for my body to figure out.
I have to say my favorite workout was a 7-mile bike ride with my friend Diane and my nephew Alec. This included one huge hill that even the kid had to walk his bike up.
Now for the weight loss … let’s just say there isn’t any. Bright side, I haven’t gained any either. I have to believe I am still losing inches as my clothes are looser and I can fit into a few more of those suits I had saved. At the last measure I could barely zip them up and sitting down was not an option. It’s got me a little frustrated. Even though weight loss is not my primary focus, it does help to keep me motivated when I see the numbers go down.
There were several people who stopped whatever they were doing this past week and made a point to tell me what a great job I was doing and that they can really see the transformation. Thank you for doing this; it keeps me focused on what’s truly important. I need to look at the pictures more often to see how far I’ve come and remind myself this is only the beginning.
My suggestion is that you take pictures every month as we do so that you can see the difference. I don’t know about you, but when I would see a picture of myself when we started that’s NOT the person I see today. I look MUCH skinnier and younger. It’s amazing what denial can do. When you see a picture there’s no denying how big you are OR how far you’ve come!
