Down 7 pounds!

Another week of boot camp classes, and I’m ever so slowly starting to see some objective and measurable results from all this effort.  That is truly the only thing that helps me stick with it through all the agony!

Monday I posted on Facebook about my weight loss thus far, and had a nice vote of confidence from a good friend of mine!

Wednesday was same old thing … and burpees still suck!

And Friday, yeah, Friday was the running day that I will never forget for my entire life.  I don’t know how my brother runs marathons, I just don’t get it.  The WOD today included 5 laps around the block, which each lap is about 1/3 of a mile.  I seriously thought I was going to die!

But Jeff is right, how long did it take before I started, and how far ahead am I now after a month of this? I am still struggling to do the workouts, and I still feel frumpy, fat, out of shape, and disgusting – but I’m here and I am doing it anyway.  It totally kicks my butt and I wish it would take chunks of my butt off with each “kick” – a visual representation that adequately reflects this extreme effort would be appreciated at some point!

I didn’t puke, or faint, or die after this week – so I will keep going! Thank you Jillian!

Boot camp and knee problems

060111

I don’t know what I am doing wrong, or why karma is turning on me, but my knees are killing me.  My right knee is particularly bad, and is now snapping when I move it.  It starts to really hurt when I have it bent when sitting or driving, and when I straighten it out it clicks/snaps.  Box jumps, squats, lunges – could be any one of these or all of them.

It was a nice rest to have Monday off, it gave me a little time to heal/recover.  We saw Hangover II and that was pretty funny, not as funny as the first one but it was still better than most sequels are. The rest was not long enough to eliminate all my aches and pains – maybe that is the reality I face from now on trying to get into shape …

Sometimes I feel like I am going to die when I am doing the workouts, but I’m not dead yet …
