Day 83 and a new set of pictures to share! I’m actually pretty proud of this round of pictures. I can officially see a difference and can honestly say that I never want to go back to Day 1. It is incredibly rewarding to be able to look back and compare where I started to how far I’ve come. As tough as it was to take those pictures on Day 1, it has completely paid off. Of course there is room for improvement, but my goals are starting to look more attainable.
Six months is creeping up pretty quickly, but I’m not counting down the days. I don’t really want this journey to end yet. Instead, I think I’ll continue blogging and tracking until can say that I am the most fit I have ever been. All that to say, it means that I have to take it up a notch. Anyone who knows me knows that I commit to doing too many thing, I always want to be a part of the fun and have a very hard time saying no. However, I have decided that I need to practice saying no a bit more. I have to choose wisely which parties I attend, and which events are worth cheating for otherwise those goals I want to hit will remain far away.
I’m one week into a new program and my body is just loving it. Kevin has decided to keep me in a muscle building phase for another 4 weeks as my body is responding very well to this type of training and contines to produce great results (yay me!). It is a seriously tough workout though. The trick according to Kev is that the workout it’s causing my body to produce the maximum amount of hormones that have a positive affect on body composition while limiting the hormones that have a negative affect on body composition. So in english – the specific rest times I have is forcing my body to produce certain hormones naturally, limiting the ones that typically make you store more fat (trying to understand health can be quite confusing sometimes). For example, I am lifting maximum weight for deadlifts, but only do 3 reps, but for 6 rounds. Between each set, I rest for 2 mins. In any case it’s working – I am exhausted and want to sleep within 4 hrs after it’s completed.
I’ll post the workouts separately as well as the last two bootcamp sessions for those that are following along! Everything is working out, it’s just all comes back to time and effort. The more time I put in the more I results I see.
Here is an update on my measurements – Enjoy the pics!
