Today we had a substitute instructor at aquafit who seemed intent on turning the class into boot camp. Eventually it transpired that she had confused us with the aquapower class afterwards and drilled us with tabata, a high intensity interval workout. Finally the most brazen lady yelled from the pool: „This is aquafit for chubbies!“ Not that it made the instructor change her programme.
It was still fun, but I’m afraid my arms and legs will be screaming tomorrow. I prefer our usual routine, which leaves me energized afterwards – today just made me feel powered out.
My weight went up and down a bit this week, but the general trend is down. I was 98.9 kg this morning, – 1.7 kg from last Friday. Low carb is quite effective for me. I think I burned more fat than the scale shows, though, because I lost 2.5 cm (one inch) of girth on my belly in just six weeks, but am a mere 3 pounds lighter than at the beginning of March. I must be building muscle from all those exercises where we work with the water resistance. It’s doing wonders for my back, in any case!
