Operation Hot Bod continues!

Operation Hot Bod continues, as I know it will for many months. Hubs and I joined the YMCA, which has helped the cause.

In the past 12 days I have worked out 8 times. Although I think that statistic can improve, I did not start this plan on the slowest of weeks. Actually, the past 2 weeks have been extremely hectic in many areas of life, so I am very happy that I have worked out as much as possible.

I am adding new workouts to the mix, not just heading to the cardio equipment for 30 minutes. Most of the time, I am at the Y for at least 45 minutes, more like 75 minutes. I have tried out 2 different classes and even swam laps this week for an amazing workout. I have always loved being in the water, so it makes the workout fun. Plus, it is some hard work. I have some technique issues to work on, but I will definitely be getting in the pool more often.

As far as the results go...

The belly pooch is still noticeable. Boo. I am not happy with this, but I also realize that it can take more than 2 weeks to see results. But, I have felt so much better these past two weeks. More energy, mainly. I am excited about continuing on with the operation!

Have you been taking strides to be active these past weeks?

We joined 24 hour fitness this summer and I've become addicted to spinning. I think you'd like it:)

since I'm old now andl ove reading my mom's leftover Prevention magazines.. anyway I read that you are more likely to stick with exercising if you're doing for health reasons vs just being skinny. I know that's what keeps me at it the strength and energy!!

audrey is right. if skinny is what you are going for, anorexia or bulimia are much longer lasting alternatives...once the addiction sets in.
