This week was not a good week for me and boot camp. I was able to make it this morning and that is it. On Wednesday I did wog for 2 miles. I came home drenched with sweat, the summer weather is here! Sweating is good though, right?! Yuck!
Today we completed the Spring boot camp with a physical assesment. We did this at the beginning of boot camp, back in week one. Back then I did a mile run/walk in 12 min and 58 sec and today I did it in 11 min and 20 sec! I have gone from being able to do 15 pushups in 1 minute to 28, from 5 situps in a minute to 14. I held a plank for 30 seconds in the beginning and today I held it for 1 min 20 sec! So Ihave improved!
At the beginning I wrote that I expected or hoped to lose 15 to 20 pounds over this period of time...that has not happened. I do feel leaner and stronger. The weight is still not great. I am not going to measure myself again until the beginning of June. I will update those numbers at that time. I know my real struggle is with what I put in my mouth. I think I need to make time to put together a plan for my eating. Sometimes I feel like I am the only one who struggles with this. I know it's not true...I just feel that way. I suspect that I am an emotional eater...when I am sad. I have not been trying not to be outwardly sad lately but I think that I have been trying to fight it and maybe I need to just let it go and allow myself to feel it. I think holding it in is really not helping me to not be sad. Does anyone else have trouble with giving themselves permission to FEEL anything but good?
