ShakeThis morning’s workout was particularly grueling, and I have not stopped sweating yet!!!   I’m almost done with my 90 days, which in and of itself is a minor miracle as far as I am concerned.  I’m definitely going forward with a second “bout”, but I want to have a major chin wag with The Captain re: routines, food, etc.  I’m thinking some tasty protein shakes would be a good addition to the routine and limit fat intake even more.

An idealized Huff doing death lunges.

I am starting Month 2 – “core”.

Today, a new trainer, “Mark”, had me balancing on these two little plastic half balls.  He hops on and says “ok balance on these balls and take this 8 lb medicine ball , hold it over your head and do deep squats, ok start!”.  I just look at him. It took all of three minutes just not to fall off the damn balls.  It was pretty hilarious.  Needless to say, my balance needs a bit of work.
 
Sleep is necessary for body repairand I don’t get enough sleep which I know is a problem.  The heat now is also a factor.  

I got on the scales at my house on Saturday and I have lost a grand total of 1 pound in 30 days, AND an even bigger bitch,  I am still in the same dress and pants size so I just have to keep telling myself to suck it up and keep going.  My body has to give it up sooner or later, right??????

HUFF:
Girl guns??? 

PUFF:  Yes, biceps are called “guns” and I have no idea why.  So girls with shapely biceps have girl guns.   

HUFF: Ah ha! well, i might have some guns but alas, they are still beneath layers of flab. 
     I totally get it about the mind game. Captain Fitness told me that the third month is the ‘know it all’ month, where the trainees decide they know more than the trainers. I took a break from the food diaries and so I see what he means. I’m doing okay with the program, it’s Read the rest of this entry »

Puff taking a few hits on the Fat Fairy.

Puff taking a few hits on the Fat Fairy.

My core is getting better, along with everything else, even though I am still in the Hefty Girl division.

I have increased cardio and whipped my husband’s butt on the bikes yesterday.  My balance is becoming very stable and I’m getting stronger all the time.  I’m eating like a lumberjack and drinking a lot of water, so I know that physics will soon take over even though no weight loss to date.  Read the rest of this entry »


Puff, in response to your post about what goes in versus the result on the scale, my experience is the same.

At the half way point I had gained one pound but according to Captain Fitness, I had lost 10 lbs of fat,  similar to your experience; therefore, making us not fatter but more muscle-y.

I could give a rat’s ass about muscles.  I want to be a size 12 again.  Whah whah whah!!!! Read the rest of this entry »

Who are these people?  Note that they all consistently eat like horses 5-6 times a day and drink 1-1.5 gal of water.

And they look amazing.  I am not sure that I completely understand the forces at work here.

That guy has a core of steel.  Wow.  I really hope Andrew hasn’t seen this.

Puff's Inner Child has a "moment."


Huff is gaining the lead and I am losing the training war.  I fought Andrew and Andrew won.
 
I think I am 8 or 9 weeks in and have lost NO POUNDS.  I have lost a bunch of inches and gobs of fatty-kins — honestly, I don’t know the numbers exactly but I lost like 27 inches off just one thigh or something like that, but gained a pound.  How is it even humanly possible?  I need to go back to university and study physics since this seems to violate all of the natural laws.  I have Read the rest of this entry »
