Day 107 - The Gym

Now that school is out, the gym is my only kid-free break during my days. The gym has a great area for kids there, and thankfully, mine love to go there.

In my quest to get rid of these last *cough* 20 pregnancy pounds, I've doubled my workout routine. And if that is not enough, I'm willing to triple it.

While I was pregnant with Elise last summer, I worked out twice a week in a class called "Boot Camp". I revelled in the fact that I could still run faster then the other ladies while being 8 months pregnant. I guess I'm a little competitive. I also walked a couple of miles 3-4 times a week.

I thought the pounds would come flying off since I had worked out so hard all that time. My 37 year old body had other plans.

So, I started with a personal trainer once a week and continued doing Boot Camp once a week and then running whenever I had the chance. The weight still held fast.

I stopped next excuse why it wasn't coming off. Yeah, that didn't help much either.

So in a one last ditch attempt to avoid dieting I doubled my weekly workouts.

Tuesdays - Personal Trainer
Wednesdays - Cardio Tennis
Thursdays - Boot Camp
Fridays - Kickboxing
Saturday - Running or Group Power

Today is Friday and the body held up fine this week during all of that exercising. I had sore calves, and heard a pop in my arm during kickboxing, but otherwise felt pretty good. I'm really hoping that this will help...I really, really want to have my cake and eat it too.
