So far this week I am on top of my fitness game.
On Monday I did the Callanetics workout I should have done on Sunday.
Yesterday I did Level 1 of Jillian Michaels Killer Buns and Thighs.
It follows the same format at 30 Day Shred and Ripped in 30. 3 workouts, 3 levels, 30+ minutes of fat burning
torture fun. I found it to be challenging. The previews of levels 2 and 3 scared me as they both involve a chair!?! O_O I am not sure I will get to discover that joy as I only have this video until Saturday and I have another Jillian video to try out.
Tonight’s fun and good times will be Level 1 of Shred It with Weights.
Doesn’t that look like a world of fun?
Tomorrow I will do another Callanetics workout, my 6th so far.
While cleaning up my room last month, I found a workout tracking book that I got from joining a boot camp back in Sept 2010. My measurements were recorded in this book. I did the boot camp for 8 weeks and managed to lose a lot of inches. The trainer did not have a scale so I have no idea what I weighed or lost.
When I started on this voyage back in Sept 2012 I gave myself 3 months to lose weight/inches by myself. If I wasn’t able to motivate myself I would go back to boot camp at $300 for 8 weeks. Needless to say I kept my money. 🙂
What made me sad about finding the book was when I look at my start measurements from Sept 2010 and Sept 2012 there is a difference of 3 inches in most of the areas that were measured. In 2 years I gained 3 inches all around. How did I not notice that?
In 2010 I went to boot camp because I noticed I was putting on weight. I lost some size, I can’t tell you how much right this minute as I don’t have the book in front of me. At some point over the past 2 years I would have returned to the size that prompted me to start working out. I am thinking now that time might have been April 2011 when I did 30 Day Shred for 90 days straight. I think at that time I built muscle under my fat. But since I didn’t have a scale and rewarded myself constantly for working out, I did not get the full benefit from all that exercise.
Until I joined myfitnesspal.com I don’t think I realized how much more important watching your calories is than working out.
