Week 6 of REV32 got off to a rough start. A very dear friend's father, whom I thought of as a second dad, unfortunately, passed away. That was really tough to deal with. Despite not having a REV32 workout session scheduled for that night, I decided to go to Renaissance ClubSport to work out on my own. I was still in a sort of daze and didn't work out as hard as I could, but I felt much better afterward.
The second fit test — and my second shot at the wall sit — was slated for Monday morning, the very first day of Week 5 of REV32. I was determined to improve on the numbers from the initial fit test and accomplished that, even beating my previous time on the wall sit by 47 seconds. Instead of feeling great about my progress, I was actually somewhat disappointed, though I can't really explain why or even what I was expecting.
They say that the best way to tell a story is to start at the beginning, so here we go. As I walked into Renaissance ClubSport for Day One of the first week of REV32, I couldn't help but feel excited. I was definitely ready to begin the program. That first session started with a weigh-in, which, for me, was pretty uneventful, since I already had an idea of what my number would be.
Hi, there! I'm Stephanie and this is the beginning of my REV32 journey. I'm a nurse in a pediatric ICU department and the busy mother of four in a household that both my husband and I work to sustain. Because countless other things take priority, taking care of myself tends to sink to the bottom of the list. Like many women, it's the gained and unlost baby weight that brought me to REV32. Let's stop here for a second and rewind it back to give you the full story.
