Going back in time …
My Aunt bought this tape ( yes as in VHS tape) brand new. I am not sure how it came into my possession but I remember doing this back in high school. I remember another Aunt doing the exercise program back then as well. Sadly I remember chuckling to myself as she could not stretch as far as I could at the time. Little did I know that 3 years ago at a family reunion, this now 70-year-old Aunt would put on a bikini and put ALL of her nieces to shame.
How full of my self I was back then … Oh to be young. 😉
Anyhoo, I pulled this oldie but goody off of the bookshelf and vowed to do it every 4 days. So far I have done it 4 times. This video promises visible change to your body after doing it 10 times. I usually see a change after 5 or 6 and then stop doing it. 😦 I like that there is no impact and lots of stretching. Something I don’t get from Jillian or Leslie.
The library has become an even bigger asset to me as I am now using it to borrow all kinds of workout videos. Test driving them before I think about buying them. Much better for my wallet and I get a variety of workouts. My only complaint is that I only get the videos for a week at a time so I have to hustle to try them.
Last week I went back to Jillian. There is something to be said for that wiped feeling after a workout. You know when you are huffing and puffing and high on endorphins. 😉 And you think, “man that was one tough workout.”
What I like about Banish Fat Boost Metabolism is that it was a good lot of cardio. While weights were not used I still felt like I got a great workout. I only did it once cause it’s almost an hour!!! I am the queen of the 20 minute workout. Although now that I am lighter I am learning that I will have to workout longer in order to get the same calorie burn as when I started. 😦
Today I did No More Trouble Zones. OMG …
Miss Jillian was not kidding around with this workout. Again almost an hour with weights. My arms are like jelly right now. I haven’t felt like this in a long while.
I am debating purchasing both of these workouts. Right now I can order them from Walmart.ca for under $16 total with taxes and free shipping.
As of Monday’s weigh in I am down 18 lbs. I have 12 more to go to hit my goal. I think however I might try to lose a bit more than that but I will assess and make that decision when I get to my goal weight.
The first set of measurements I took were back in September. Last time was mid-February. At that point I was down a total of 11.25 inches. I shall measure again this week-end to see if anything has changed.
Right now I am feeling much better than I have in a long while. It’s crazy to me that I let it get so out of control.
I am really glad that I bought a scale. If I didn’t have one I would have stop working out as my clothes are loose and I feel fantastic. But I am still heavier than the top weight in the range for my height.
So back to the exercise video for me.
