So, I though that with the consistent exercise I have been doing over the past 6 months that I was getting more physically fit. Wow was I wrong! Last wed (6/16) I started a "Boot Camp" style exercise class with 3-8 people per day, 3 days a week for 1 hour. Basically we do alternating circuits of cardio and strength. I have completed 4 classes so far. Now, I know that basically for the last 6 months I have been doing mostly cardio with the only strength training coming from Yoga. The class is kicking my a**.
On the positive side - I can do the runs and all the exercises in the right form to mostly completion. Even though I am the heaviest, I keep up with all the skinny girls. I sweat (rare for me) and really feel I am getting a workout. I use fairly heavy weights, except on shoulder work. If I go to heavy there I pay the next day with a headache from the tightness in my upper back. I don't get too sore, except in my butt the last few days. So yes there is progress to my fitness level.
On the negative - I am dead dog tired. I feel like I am in a fog most days. I get enough sleep minus the multiple interruptions (cat, Mr, baby). I am more tired that first trimester pregnancy tired. I hate going up the stairs and look like an old lady doing so.
