I am really enjoying the program and have been feeling stronger and less lethargic...and less guilty when I overindulge in my eating habits (those gift cards for restaurants have to be used!) One of my goals was to be able to enjoy exercise and not look at it as 'punishing' myself. The small group format is really helping me reach that goal!
The group keeps me accountable to be there and I actually look forward to going as normally I would most likely stay at my desk and work a little longer or go home and snack while watching TV.
I have self diagnosed myself with 'EADD'- Exercise Attention Deficit Disorder. The change up in the routine as really helped with that. I now work harder to get through the cardio so I can get to the weight machines, which I really enjoy.
The muscle soreness is just enough to make me feel better about the workouts and myself. I have not lost any weight...yet. It is because I am building muscle right? No, I have to work on my eating habits. I know and can practice all the good habits for about 2-3 hours, however on the bright side, the workouts are actually curbing my junk food snacking when I think about how much it takes to work off that raw chocolate chip cookie dough that has become one of my recent cravings.
