At D1 they say it takes 8 weeks to see a change in your body. When I started that seemed like an eternity. I also didn’t know what they meant by a change. I was hoping it would be a miraculous change as in wearing size 4 jeans again. I admit that was an ambitious hope, but hey a girl can wish.
This is a photo of me at the end of my 8th week at D1. I think I now know what they mean by change. I have a long way to go to the size 4 but man I’m really happy with the results so far! Let me tell you a few things I have learned in the last 8 weeks. I should also clarify that life happens, I have not attended 8 weeks consecutively, I missed a few weeks due to travel and illness, but I jumped right back in when I could. I now average at least 4 classes per week.
- If you modify your diet along with the workout you will see better results. This seems like a no-brainer, but when you are working out hard you are hungrier. I mention the food piece of this because this is my improvement without modifying my diet. Now that I can actually see that this is working, I am making diet modifications to hopefully see even better results in the next eight weeks.
- You don’t have to lose weight to see results. I weigh more in my after picture than in my before picture. This was so frustrating to me, but now I realize muscle weighs more and my clothes fit better. As you can see, my major issue is my gut!
- You can and must make working out a priority to see and maintain results. What I like about D1 is that they have multiple class times and you can bring your kids with you. They offer classes for kids too. Check out their schedule here.
- You will feel like a loser at times. In my case, I kept thinking this workout was something I would master. You don’t master it. It is challenging every single time. That is a good thing. It is the pushing every session that continues to shape your body.
We have a group of moms from My719Moms that tried out our first boot camp and we would love to see more. D1 is offering two weeks of free unlimited classes to anyone who mentions My719Moms and hasn’t been to D1 before. Give it a try, I think you will love the results!
