For the last 2 weeks I have been putting my weight loss on the front burner with few crafty projects on the horizon. The Squid has agreed to be my trainer and is a fantastic motivator for me. I have been working my ass off.
Hopefully, I am being literal. We'll see.
This morning, I sat in what can only be described as a spaceship escape pod, in nothing but a sports bra, and a pair of biker shorts. Sounds awesome right?!? The reason is, here at our current base we have the amazing opportunity to get a body fat reading free at the gym. So, I was told without any hesitation that my previous feelings were correct. I am about 1/2 muscle and 1/2 blobs of gelatinous goo. That's right, I am/have 46% body fat.
I am not surprised or bitter, I knew that would be the case. The reason I subjected myself to this was to be able to have more than just a visible account of all my hard work. I have some lofty goals for the rest of the time we are here, and being healthy is priority one. I have lost almost 6 pounds since we've started and I hope to keep going strong.
Have you looked into all your base gym has to offer??
Our gym had the BRILLIANT idea to convert one of the racquet ball courts into a family gym. When you walk in there are machines on each side and a space in the back blocked off by baby gates and padding, (daycare gates looks like) with a TV on the wall, and toys. My kids love it in there and play well the whole time I'm working out. I love that they are in the same room with me and any one that comes in has to pass by me to get to the gate. Awesome!
