Captain America is my trainer. My friend Cupcake and I started working out with Captain America in June. Cupcake and I would get up at the crack of dawn to get our butts kicked. Two training days and 2 cardio days each week for 4 months. I can't believe we stuck to it that long honestly. We both got weighed and measured when we started and then again about 6 weeks later. No results. Are you kidding me?! All this work and lack of sleep for no results? I know, I know, muscule weighs more than fat...you may gain weight before you loose weight...it also has a lot to do with what you eat, you have to do both...WTF. But we stuck to it for another 8 weeks or so. Good for us but still no results! I say no results but that is not right. I should say not the results we had hoped for. I have had no weight loss and no inches lost that I can tell. I'm not dropping a size in my jeans by all means. But, I will say I have had results. I am strong, a lot firmer, and it is now my habit to work out rather than my goal to someday do so. Our time with Captain America is up for now but I am still getting in a good workout 4 times a week. You bet I make sure Captain America sees me when I'm in the gym so that he knows I'm there, it's validation. Plus I do want to train with him again one day so I want him to know that I am committed and doing what it takes. Maybe he'll use his super powers and take off a few inches for me for all my hard work. It could happen right? He is Captain America you know.
