So back in January, I started working out with a personal trainer at the Pro Club. I loved it: I'd have one session with Carl a week, and work out twice on my own. I ran all the other days. I felt great, and I could see some muscle developing, but three months later my weight was stuck at 152, no matter how much I worked out.
I stopped seeing Carl at the beginning because, basically, it was bleeding me dry financially. And I started running more, and stopped going to the gym as much - I haven't been since April 11, as he told me when I came in.
Anyway, he took some measurements, and there's been progress!
Here are the stats (January / April)
Weight: 152.5 / 148
Body fat: 28.2% / 25%
Waist: 31 / 29.5
Hip: 40 / 39.5
It's not dramatic progress, but it's the first progress I've noted, and I'm delighted. Plus, it's happened since I started running properly, outside, and not on the treadmill.
I'm totally remotivated. I loved lifting weights again today, and I'll be back in the gym again on Monday, my next no-run day.
