I have noticed that I haven’t updated my experiences or progress with my Best Body Bootcamp adventure. How appalling of me!
I have been doing really well on the program. Of course I always have to make adjustments to the planned workouts, but I am very happy to say that I have been able to keep myself going pretty easily. The idea is to get at the minimum five days of some type of exercise/activity in a week. As well as two weekly goals.
Here are some of the goals that I have chosen week to week to work towards.
- Take multi-vitamins
- Stretch more before/after exercising
- Drink at least 4 bottles of water
- Start sitting to eat meals as opposed to multi-tasking while eating
So far I have been doing well with all goals listed. The only one that gets me from time to time is the stretching. I do stretch before and after, although at times I really do not stretch enough. It depends on where I am working out at. Usually if I am at home I do not spend as much time because I have to do things around the house and for the boys. The water goal has been helping me make sure I get enough water daily. There were several days that I would go most of the day with only one to two bottles. So not enough! As for the last one, well that one I really needed to work towards. I too often clean, do laundry, etc while eating at home. As for at work I am often eating at my desk with my lunch. I finally decided that was enough. Not only do I need to sit and enjoy meals, but I just need a break from the desk as well 🙂
Now for weight and measurements. When I started this program I had slipped back into some old habits. It is so easy to get off track with health when life gets busy. I realized that I had to make time for myself to work out. Which is why BBB came along at the perfect time!
- lbs lost – 4
- inche(s) from natural waist – 1.5
- inche(s) from hips – 1
- inche(s) from thigh – 1
- inches in circumference from the derrière – 2
Yes I measured around the bootay, lol!! You have to understand that the bottom portion of my body is where I gain most of my weight so I tend to focus on that more. Overall I am very happy with the results. I have continued to sub the workouts as needed, and I still enjoy nights with friends. I am more conscious of what I am eating, making sure I get in workouts, and still enjoying life to it’s fullest. Trust me with my new hectic work schedule and caseload I totally need to decompress on weekends 🙂
