Day 3 is a rest day on the DVD... but I'm feeling like I'm on a roll... so I've ridden my exercise bike for 10 minutes and did a cardio dance DVD for 20 minutes. I might do either one a little more later this evening.... we'll see. :)
Today I did Day 2 of the DVD. It was a little harder for me because of the floor work... but when I can finally do it and do it well... I will know just how far I've come. :)
The exercise where you lay on your belly and lift your head/chest made the back of my head and neck hurt... any tips for me on that? ... (not to mention that laying on my belly was very uncomfortable because of the boob situation! Don't know how I'll get around that one! or should I say those. LOL!)
Today's workout was 22 minutes total... then my daughter did it, and while she followed the dvd... I rode my exercise bike! for 22 minutes! I ride it slow and steady, but still. I rode it without stopping!
My daughter and I made an observation... why do we feel like we look stupid while doing these workouts... when Coach Nicole looks so cute?!?! :)
on a dieting note:
I started the Body by Vi diet plan today. I had breakfast, then a shake for lunch between 12 & 12:30... and I wasn't hungry again until after 6PM! I was surprised. I had my "supper" shake a couple hours ago... and a cup of grapes, and I still feel full! I was worried about wanting to eat, but today I did well and didn't want to. :) I also drank 12 cups of water! YUM! :)
I did Day 1 already... and it's fun! I love the way it's laid out. You can choose the workout you want to do, or you can follow her 28 day plan... which is what I'll be doing. When you choose the 28 day plan on the DVD it takes you to a calendar/menu. Workouts, workout days and rest days are already planned in... all I have to do it just click the day I'm on and DO IT.
So... let's see how long I keep this up, and let's see what I accomplish with it. Tomorrow I will also be starting a meal replacement plan diet called Body by Vi... along with eating more fruits and veggies and no so much breads and meats and sweets.
I'll post my current weight and measurements tomorrow, cause I forgot to weigh this morning... and I need to buy a tape measure. :)
Anyhow... Day 1 is done! and I feel good! (insert James Brown here!)
btw... I'm still planning on getting Turbo Jam and/or Zumba sometime, not sure when... waiting for better prices on Amazon, I reckon... or my sis to come through. :)
Just looking for opinions on which you like best. I'm going to see if my library has them, also.
I have a couple of terrific friends... one does Turbo Jam and the other Zumba... they both love 'em... what do you think?
Today's assignment is to list all the reasons you want to lose weight.
