My fitness class is divided into 10 week sessions. At the beginning and end of each session you take a picture. And apparently pictures are worth a lot of words, so….
I started in November of 2012, although I didn’t take my first picture until my first official 10 week session, from Jan-Apr 2013:
My second 10 week session, from Apr-Jun 2013:
My third 10 week session, from Jun-Aug 2013:
My fourth 10 week session from Sept-Nov 2013:
My fifth 10 week session, from Jan-Apr 2014
And then…I lost motivation..and although I attended classes sporadically, I never took an after picture for the April-June 2014 challenge….
So anywho….next up, is Session # 6, June-Aug 2014, with a brand new before picture!
And finally (phew) Session # 7…which just finished last week. Last week was also my 2 year anniversary, as it were…as I started the program on November 12th. Yup. I looked it up. Crazy? Yup.
Anywho…I also believe that there are some things that can’t be seen in a picture..how I feel when I can walk up stairs without being winded…or when I can pick my 4 year old niece up over my head to give her a ride on my shoulders…or when we do planks in karate class and everyone groans and I’m like, yay, I got this!…or the first time I did pushups not on my knees…or the confidence I have gained regarding my body…none of those things show up in the pictures…but they are true just the same. 😀
