Just an update to the goal of getting in better physical shape in 2006. After 3 weeks of regular workouts I was somewhat disappointed to find that I had only lost 4 pounds. I was hoping the wieght loss would be a little more than that, but then I remembered what the goal was, it was to just be better. So I’m 4 pounds lighter than I was before. That’s a good thing!
Also, upon further reflection and a couple more weeks of workouts, while I might not be melting the pounds away I am definitely feeling like I have more stamina, and more energy. I’m able to work out harder without getting tired or sore, and I definitely notice my stress level going down on days after we’ve been to workout the night before compared to days we have other plans. So I’m building muscle and stamina, which is going to limit the weight loss, but I’m feeling better and I am losing some weight, so it’s all good!
