Last week was the end of the first session with weight maintenance program/ Biggest Loser and I lost 8.5 pounds and gained one pound of muscle… The trainer says that means I actually lost a whole other pound of fat to replace it with muscle! I’m excited because I feel a lot stronger. Last Thursday did the test to compare where I was the first week and 8 weeks later.
- pushups 18 to 25
- sit ups 24 to 34
- leg lifts 59 to 75
- push the bar (flexibility) 23 to 23.5
I lost 8.5 pounds and gained one pound of muscle over 8 weeks. Best of all, my BMI numbers takes me from overweight to normal. Weight 151.5 to 143.
I even “ran” the track for 12 minutes. (Okay… my arms were running, but my feet still looked like a fast walk)
Guess I’m doing more than maintaining. “Maintaining” somehow sounds like flat lining to me.
Second session started yesterday. We really just worked arms and abs. New goal: to do cardio every day for 500 calories.
This is my fifth High Intensity Interval Training session in a row! June-July , August/September, October/November into Dec. Jan/Feb, starting March/April into May. No wonder I’m getting stronger!!!
