2nd Progress Pictures and Boot Camp Workout

Oy vey! It's that embarrassing time again where I temporarily lose sight of any sanity I possess and voluntarily post pictures of myself in my underwear to show you lovely readers my weight loss and toning progress.

It has been a slow and steady journey so far, but it is definitely working. I mentioned the other day that I've lost 4 lbs since starting boot camp and (more importantly) my food and nutrition journal. I received positive feedback last night from the staff at the gym about my eating habits thus far, so cheers to that! Even better, today is pay day so I can afford to go grocery shopping and get more fruits and veggies!

So let's get on with it, shall we? Here are a few progress pictures for you:

No it isn't anything dramatic, but it is progress and that is all I really care about at this point! I have a long way to go in my hips and lower belly area (don't we all?)
I also want to point out that I am getting a little muscle definition in my thighs (which are one of my biggest problem areas). I've been doing a lot of running for my 5k!

I will always have big thighs, but now they are beginning to look muscular rather than just straight fat and dimples! Ha! I don't mind them being big as long as they are solid.

Phew! Now that that's over with, I'd like to share Boot Camp #2 workout with everyone. It took about 35-40 minutes for me to complete this list, but I was also tied for the first person done. Today my arms are so exhausted from all of those burpees and push ups! In order to pick up my tumbler of water on my desk, I have to use both hands! I am also very sore in my calves, though thankfully my thighs are doing good!

1 lap around building
5 burpees
90 high knees
5 burpees
80 lateral jacks
5 burpees
70 speed skates
5 burpees
50 butt kicks
5 burpees
40 squat jumps
5 burpees
30 mountain climbers
5 burpees
20 jump lunges
5 burpees
10 super planks

In case you have never heard of a burpee, here is a video I did a while back, however last night she made us hit our chest all the way to the floor which is a little different from how I normally do them.

Are you going to try this at home?! Push yourself! Y'all can do ANYTHING!!!

I also wanted to mention that I MIGHT be instructing group fitness classes at my gym soon! I was asked if I'd be interested, so further discussion will happen next week! Super exciting!! I'll channel my inner Richard Simmons! COME ON LADIES!

Until next time...STAY MOTIVATED!Pin It
