    OK. I haven't had much time to be here since I've been at the gym 4 out of the last 5 nights. I'm loving it so far. The kick boxing classes are absolutely brutal! I like the weight training. Everyone there is really nice and the owners are very helpful and will work on a nutrition plan with me. stats

    I am 54 years old
    160.6 lbs
    32.4% body fat

    I would like to get down to 140 with 26% body fat.

      Well, I was going really strong for most of the week. Thursday I was ticked because I couldn't get to a 7:30pm class because of a golden doodle that took me ages to groom. Friday night I went and did weights (40min) and a class (1 hour) and then a weight instruction lesson (45 min). I was exhausted. I'll also add that I groomed 24 dogs this week, which is a really busy week for me.

      Sat morning I went to do another weight session (legs/back) and had to rush through it to finish in time to get to a cardio class at 12:00. I ran up stairs to the class already tired and out of breath. She started the class and I just couldn't keep up AT ALL. I got really discouraged and thought that I should just leave the class right then. Tears were welling up and I felt like I just couldn't do this. I'm too old, too weak, too out of shape, too tired.

      Maybe the instructor noticed I wasn't doing very well, I don't know, but she seemed to take it down a level or two and did some stretching, etc for about 5 minutes. It helped me catch my breath and recover a bit. So I continued on, but still felt bad. I left quietly and came home to cry.

      So, I am taking a day off - we do get Sundays "off" - and trying to regroup.

        I just bought a treadmill

        It arrives at my door around the 25th. I know it will take time to gain stamina, but I already can walk from the rig to the clients house and back. LOL So since I can walk (no problem from my chair to the fridge) I guess I can start off slowly for the treadmill. I just Have to do this! Everytime I loose I gain back more and it scares me to try again. I think you are doing great. Don't give up, it takes time; you know that Rome wasn't built in a day.

            After two weeks...

            I had a weigh-in and measurement

            Weight 154.0 (from 160.6)
            Waist measurement went down 1/2"

            I got over the "hump" and am enjoying the classes again!

              Final evaluation was today....

              After 8 weeks. What a fun bunch of people I met. I had my ups and downs. In week 4 I fell down the stair at home. Got THE most humongous bruise on my butt and wrenched my shoulder badly. I also had to put down my Teddy that week. I couldn't do any of the weight training that week, but went to 7 classes in 6 days.
              So the results were
              weight from 160.6 to 148.8 (-11.8lbs)
              body fat from 32.4 to 25.9 (-6.5%)
              waist from 37.25 to 32.5 (-4.75")

              I feel soooooo much better, so healthier and so much happier. I have joined for another 3 months of unlimited classes.
