The gym FINALLY replaced a bunch of the treadmills! There were a couple that if I could have lifted them, I would have dragged them to the curb myself. I took one for a whirl last night. It has these automatic inclines that are gnarly. My arms were killing me from having to hang on! I also felt like I was walking on the roof (I'm 5'11). But despite the freak out over height and the hanging on for dear life, I do like them. It will just take some getting used to being able to walk at such an incline. Somewhere, the old treadmills are hanging their belts in shame.
In other great news, the scale has finally moved in the right direction. I weighed and measured today with my trainer. I weighed in at 206.6 pounds. YAY! Of course we did this at 7am instead of our usual 6pm so it was probably a timing issue. But I will still take it! I also lost inches or fractions of inches all over! I love forward progression! Plateaus stink. They just cause undue stress. It is nice to know that when you refocus and start with a fresh slate that your body jumps back into the game too!
I am taking part in a 12 week challenge at Gold's Gym. The first official weigh-in, measurements and pictures are on Friday. I could do without the pictures. The belly area is not a pretty site. However, it is way better than it used to be! This gives me something new to focus on and 3 months to make an even greater impact on my health and my goddess like physique (sarcasm folks, sarcasm).
