Can I look like her please?

Monday, August 02, 2010

So, I'm starting my day trying to figure out what workout I want to do. I came across a video on YouTube from a poster named Zuzanna. Yes, she is a hottie but I followed the link to her blog I was skeptical about her videos but as I watched them I realized she's just a regular person working out at home like me. She talks to you like she's just a friend working out with you and you see her struggle and sweat. It's not like watching a workout video where everyone is smiley and sweat free. She looks like me when I exercise (ok, not EXACTLY. Just the red faced, sweaty "dear lord, what am I doing" kind of look). The video's aren't full videos. They're clips so you get an idea of the intervals she's doing.

She also does videos on recipes, travel and fashion. I really enjoyed it. From reading comments some people like to point out that she shows a lot of cleavage. But lets face it and own up to it. She works hard for her body and if we had her body too we would be putting it out there. I know I would!

I'm glad I found this blog! I'm going to incorporate some of workouts and see if I can get Italy ready!!!! emoticon

UPDATE: Did the Sexy Pain Train. Can I just say OUCH!!! I am dripping with sweat!! The intervals lasted 40 seconds per round. 30 seconds high intensity, 10 seconds rest doing 18 rounds, 6 exercises 3 times each. It sucked but was fun! My heart rate was in the 80's and in the 90's at one point so I slowed it up. I did do a couple modifications to help me out since I'm still a beginner. Try it out! I also used the free interval timer at You can do custom settings. Worked like a charm ;)


Just getting up....

Today seems really hard to even get out of bed. My house hasn't sold, my car hasn't sold and I can't move to Italy until they are. I'm really missing my husband today and feeling the stress of it all. Not to mention going outside is not appealing because it's sooooo hot.

Now that I've said it, it's out of my head and I can get on with my day. Coffee is being consumed as I type. Hopefully it will kick in fast. I have my workout planned for the day. Now it's just getting off my bahookey and doing it :) I'm picturing myself in my bridesmaid dress and even better it's at least 2 sizes smaller than what I squeezed myself in to try it on. I KNOW I CAN... I KNOW I CAN...!

    It is easy to feel overwhelmed with the things of life, but don't be discouraged. Take a deep breath and try to tackle one thing at a time. I am so sorry that you are separated (by distance) from your hubby and have so many things that have to be done before you can move. I will be praying for you and your family. That you will have strength during this time, that your house will sell, that your car will sell and that you will be encouraged.

So thing at a time, one step at a time. You CAN do this!! And I....and a bunch of other nice SP folks....will be right here cheering you on. You really CAN do this!!

Best wishes always....Bill

I did it!!!

Ok, so this is a day that I actually did my cardio workout & showered before my kids woke up and my sister's arrived!!! Not only that but I did log EVERYTHING I ate! Even the bad stuff :( But it's a start and the fact that I included them and feel ashamed for having to write them in will make me think twice about eating them again tomorrow ;)

I do not journal and the thought of writing EVERYTHING I eat down is a challenge. But I did it and I'm glad I did and proud of myself for sticking to it. This is just the beginning! Now on to keeping up with it AND exercising! Keeping up with the exercising is another one I need to start being consistent on!!
