Yesterday, Chris and I lifted at the gym and followed it up with a new class, Guns and Guts. Unfortunately, we were the only ones that showed up. It always boggles my mind that the 4:30 am classes are so full, but it’s difficult to get people into the gym in the evening. I get it, there’s a lot on people’s plates (mine too- I share in the struggle), but I never would have imagined that so many would get up for a workout before the sun comes up. Because of the popularity of morning classes, Danita added in a Balls and Bands class this morning. It was nice to do something different and to have my workout and miles in before 7 am.
Chris has been doing my measurements since October. We haven’t been very consistent, taking them only when one of us remembers. I actually remembered tonight and had him jot down the numbers. Since I started at the gym in August, we have taken measurements only 5 times. I’ve lost a total of 16.5 inches since October. I never really feel like I’m losing that much until I see the difference in the numbers.
He accompanies the measurements with pictures. These are the ones that blow my mind. There are many days when I look at parts of my body and I’m disappointed in the way I look, but these pictures show me how far I’ve come. This collage is October, May, and today. I highly recommend doing pictures and measurements… sometimes the scale doesn’t move as quickly as you’d like, but it doesn’t mean you aren’t making progress.
