WORKING ON MY FITNESS
I started up at Washington Gym in November and signed a 3 month contract for 3 days a week. I wanted to start somewhere that wasn't just a regular gym, I needed a place that was encouraging and a place where I could just go and and be instructed on what to do and do it in correct form all while having fun! I still can't run because of my ankle so these workouts are also providing my cardio which is KEY!
On day 1 they took my measurements so that at the end of three months I can see my progress.
Lets just say I was bummed on that first day. My Body Fat content was a lot higher than I thought it would be. 29.76% !!!!! Way too high!!! When my three months is up I will post all my measurements for accountability. I was 126 lbs on 11/8/12 and today I am 121.
My problem areas are my tummy, love handles, and thighs! This is all going to take more than just working out for me. I have to eat right to demolish these areas. Most of the time eating healthy is not a problem, it's the road trips, vacations, working long hours, birthday parties, and social events that throw me off. French Fries, Chips and Queso, Ice Cream, Carbs and Alcohol are all things I enjoy very much.
Who am I kidding, they will never be completely out of my life so I just have to learn portion control and maybe allow it only 1-2 days a week.
Always a challenge for me....DRINKING WATER!
