Last night, we (Lyle and I) had our 8th workout with Benny. It felt great. And like always, she continued to change it up so we were not bored. I wish I could post a video of how much she gets us to do in an hour.
I wanted to post some pictures of what I look like now - with a bathing suit on (thanks to my 6 year old daughter, Kiera, for taking the pic). I know... it is daring, but it will also hold me accountable. So, all those who are brave, look below. I did not take a picture of me wearing a bathing suit back in April - I wish I had; but I hope that in June, I look even better than this:
As you can see from this picture, I still have a long way to go. It is actually scary to think what I would look like wearing these clothes when I was 197.5 lbs. This morning, I weighed in at 154.2 lbs. My goal weight is 135. This would put me in the BMI category of "Normal Weight". This picture is actually motivating for me because I can start to see my ab definition. Benny is really working on my triceps, abs and butt. After last night's workout, I can barely sit down.
Another goal is to get rid of my knee fat... and believe me, it was really bad, back in April.
Okay, I have picked at my image long enough (I could have written 12 more things that I do not like about my body). What I hope to include in the future is actually moves from our workouts.
We finish with Benny on February 2nd. I hope to post another picture then. I would love to hear from you... with your advice, goals, or even questions.
