Random thoughts of an upbeat mind

PGH – 2/3/16

I bite the bullet and weighted myself on Monday. 4 lbs gone!! 🙂 AND more than 1 inch lost around my waist and hips. 😀

I’m not going to lie I was hoping for more. But given my pig out fest on Saturday, I’m not completely surprised …

Last month I tried a few new to me workout DVDs. Some I liked. Others not so much. At one point I had borrowed 15 workout DVDs from the library. O_o

First up an oldie, but goodie Buns of Steel.

Buns of Steel

This is not my mother’s Buns of Steel. I borrowed it only to see if anything had changed. It was an “okay” workout. Nothing to write home about. There were six 10 minute workouts and 3 workouts.

Sculpt & Burn

I was hot and sweaty at the end of Sculpt & Burn. This workout makes me realize I need to up my cardio game. There are four 10 minute workouts and a 5 minute warm up and cool down. You can mix and match to your heart’s content.

Personal training with Jackie

Jackie, where to start with her. The personal training video consists of two 25 minute workouts, an upper and lower/core. Both are pyramid style where you start with doing 1 rep of 2 exercises moving up to doing 10 reps. This is one circuit. There are 6 circuits. Jakie showed me how weak my upper body is. Both workouts were very challenging to me.

One on one training

This DVD was more my speed, three 20 minute workouts, upper, lower and core. 🙂 Each workout consisted of strength training and cardio. The cardio broke up the intensity which I appreciated.

Tone Every Zone Walk

I loved this DVD. As in I put in a request for it the day I returned it and am patiently waiting for it to come back to me. Three 20 minute workouts, upper with weights, lower body with weights and a fast walk. The music is very upbeat which I really enjoyed.

Slim + Sculpt Cardio  Cardio dance

I have nothing nice to say about either of these DVDs. Both were hard to follow along as the instructions were either missing or unclear. I was surprised as I liked her other videos and will stick to them.

 

I have a few more on hold at the library and will let you know if I find anything worthwhile.

  1. Tone Every Zone! Buns of Steel! I just love the titles so much. That’s great with the weight loss. I’m losing some too at long last!!! Slow and steady but I am heading downwards. I have done a lot of outside exercise – the trick is to keep it up now I am back at work 😦

    • Congrats on your weight loss. Finding the time to fit in the exercise seems to be a challenge. I keep seeing FB posts from Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson of him getting up and working out at 4 am and I think well if he can do it why not me? Not 4 am though, that’s insane.
