I will get to the title in a minute.
I realized lately that I needed a change. I have gotten bored with my strength training and when I get bored I have a tendency to just stop doing something. I think that is why I like running because I never get bored. There is always a new trail, park or route to explore. This keeps me feeling as if I am seeing something new every so often. My previous trainer had given me a really good strength training program that I have been doing for a while, and that is just it I have been doing it for a while. So time for a change. I am currently doing some research on different exercises and focusing on increase the weight I am using to challenge myself.
My daughter has been taking TaeKwonDo at a local martial arts studio since August and we love it there. The owner is amazing with the kids and he is great with my often difficult and distracted daughter. Well they offer a lot of adult classes. My husband at times does Krav Maga and I do yoga there when I can. Recently he started working with another parent doing what he called FitCom (hence the title). So when he said he was looking for a guinea pig I said heck yeah.
So the concept of FitCom is that most people are willing to sit and watch a 30 min Sitcom but people come up with excuses for why they can’t take 30 min a day to work out. So FitCom is 30 min of your day 22 min of active work and 8 min of active rest (the length of a sitcom). So we will be doing 6x a week for 4 weeks which is 24 sessions and we will see how the progress is. This week is week on.
I started yesterday 3/28 and my starting weight is 170 (I know I am putting that out there for the world). I have maintained the same weight for 6 months which is amazing as a doctor told me yesterday because the majority of people who lose as much weight as I have tend to go back up. My goal those is to get closer to 150. Realistic? Who knows but I will try. I know that won’t happen in 4 weeks but if I can lay some different ground work then I can at least get a head start.
So over the next 4 weeks I will do weekly updates on the class and my weight as well. I am also working on continued focus on my eating and trying to increase my water intake so there are a lot of factors in the mix.
