Today I completed my third week of Boot Camp. Last week I complained about my lack of patience and desire to see immediate results, and I resolved to just keep going and surely the results would reveal themselves.
Well guess what, I was right! Today was measuring day and with today's measurements I am down 6 inches from last week...with a total of 9.5 in. lost. So my exercise and nutritional choices are paying off. Under advisement from our instructor, I am not focusing on the weight lost because lbs lost doesn't necessarily mean a change in how things look in the mirror (and I'm only looking to lose about 5 lbs total).
I'm also stealing Neely's idea to start a fitness blog; although her's will be more informative to her readers, while mine is more of just a diary for me to track my progress. I think it will be helpful to be able to look back if I hit a plateau and see what I did the week when I saw change so I can use some of those exercises again. Boot Camp is only 8 weeks and I'd like to continue after May, but I will need some direction. Hopefully this will help keep me accountable.
