This week I tried a new exercise regimen. I ordered Rockin' Body about 2 weeks ago and started it this past Monday. I don't think I have sweat this much since high school basketball! The nice thing about it is I was also enjoying myself. Dancing while working out....AWESOME! Shaun T is so fun to work out with. I have heard some people don't enjoy him, but he makes me giggle! He says a lot of things that I am usually thinking too.
The workout package comes with a weekly calendar of sorts that tells you want to do and when. I like that. I like that it is telling me what workouts to do to burn the most fat. I was able to complete Monday and Tuesdays workout. Wednesday I started the workout and had to stop 5 minutes in. My back was killing me. I ended up having to take a break that day and just go for a walk. It seems I am not as in shape as I was in high school either, which is funny to even be saying/writing! Thursday and Friday I did the workouts and Saturday I did my 5k route, which ended up being 5 miles because I programed my stupid Nike Active+ wrong. Oops!
I am thinking I am going to try as best I can to do the workouts, but also continue wogging. I did not see as big of a weight loss as I had hoped for this week. I thought I was working harder than my previous week. I know I was sweating a lot more. I felt a lot more muscles that I had not been working too.
However, my weight loss was (only) 1.5 pounds this week. I know. I know. I should smile and take it. Weight Watchers recommends losing 1-2 pounds per week in order to keep the weight off. It is great. Truly. But like I mentioned in the previous paragraph, I was exercising a lot harder than just wogging for 3 point some miles everyday.
Well, anyway, I am going to add both into my week and see how that goes. I really do like the DVDs and I can totally feel a difference in my midsection, which is where I need most of all my work to happen! The most important thing is that I am still losing, still on plan, and still enjoying my new life!
Down 1.5 this week. I have now lost 17.5 pounds on Weight Watchers. Only 7.5 pounds until 25. Closer every week!
Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh......I have a secret little goal in my head of getting there before my Mom gets into town....March 17th. It is just under a month at 4 weeks away. Eekkkkkkk There I go again, doing math! I shouldn't have done that because now I realize that is going to be 2 pounds a week to get there! Well, it is a goal.
