W.O.W. Week 4

This week has been a roller coaster, I was up a pound then I was down 3-4 but I settled on Monday morning at 210 which puts me down 2 more pounds and brings me to a total of 14 pounds that i have lost in exactly one month....I now completely understand why the name of the class is WOW.  

My biggest fear is the lack of hours in a day right now.  I know that if I didn't get up and work out it isn't like I would get up and work on homework, but I am so stressed out in every area of my life that it is so awesome that I have an outlet at the gym because I think I would go insane because this is the one thing that I am doing right and seeing the results.

I signed up for Kickboxing Bootcamp that starts November 30 and goes through the last week in December, then I signed up for the W.O.W. that starts January 9th.  Crazy I know, but my fear is that I would have too much time to talk myself out of it if I didn't and obviously this is working.  

Every week I feel myself getting strong, and looking in the mirror in the morning seeing my shoulders getting defined, and putting on pants and not having them cut me in half.  This change in my life should have happened so long ago, but the past is the past and the future is what I am going to make of it.  Our kickboxing is getting harder and harder, which it feels so damn good to just sweat my ass off.  The strength training is awesome and the girl that teaches us (lyndie) is buff as hell and well I'll be honest I want her shoulders...hahah. I have been constantly pushing myself to use more weight for curls, and red bands for resistance.  Every day I am getting closer to the me I want to be on the outside that I am already on the inside. 

Never in a million years did I think I would say this, but it takes 21 days to develop a habit and well I have....I like getting up at 4:00am to work out.  I can't think of any other way I would want to start my day and as I sit here at my desk at school knowing I have another hour before anyone will be here to bother me I know that I was always meant to be a morning exerciser and that this is the beginning of the rest of my life.  I am going to beat the cycle in my family, I am going to be healthy and fit when john and I decide to try to have a baby, and I am going to be proud of the fact that I signed myself up for this damn class for the rest of my life that started me on this journey.
