Fitness after 50 Week 4

Posted Monday, September 20, 2010, at 9:57 AM

Heading into my fourth week of getting fit and I am more excited than ever!

I had initially thought that I would wait until the end of the session to get results on whether this hard work is paying off. But to my amazement and I guess do to curiosity I took out my tape meansurer and got a few numbers...OH MY, I have lost two inches around my waist, an inch around each thigh and my hips. My question at the time was, "can I quit since I have already reached my goal?"

I'm not ready to quit now, not with those kinds of results, I need higher numbers. Am I hooked? Probably, hooked on the idea that perhaps I can fit into some of my favorite jeans again.

It blows my mind that I would be so excited to go to another painful and exhausting class, but bring on the torment...I'm ready to go!
