I know, how can I miss sweating, but I guess I did. First of all I don't sweat much when I work out no matter how hard I push. I'm not one of those people you see dripping sweat everywhere and running down their face, neck etc. I get damp but don't pour sweat. For awhile I was doing my cardio with the Leslie Sansone Walk Away The Pounds videos. Some were easy and some were a challenge. I stuck with the challenge video for 2 weeks then when I got burnt out I went back to using another of her videos that was slower. Eventually I went back to her beginning video, the original 2 mile walk that I would restart when it ended. Then I decided no more, I had to push. So for the last 2 days I went back to her 5 mile Challenge walk and I really feel better because I worked up a rolling sweat! Then after reading the article yesterday that I posted on my blog about the Lift Heavier Weights with Fewer Reps for Toning and Fat Loss, I picked up the 8.8 pound weights and used those. That was a workout and it felt good. Today I did another 51 minute challenge walk with Leslie, 2 bootcamp videos and 30 minutes of exercises and I was sweating good again and it felt better! I think if I sweat good enough, I feel like I did something.
42 more days until I am back home in New Hampshire and I can join the gym again since last year when I got home, it rained for 6 straight weeks. I'll have my gym buddy again (who is also my Spark Team leader)and she really helps the workout go so much faster. 42 more days until I get to hug and kiss my son, grandson, daughter and other grandson, I can't wait!
Then we'll have our New Hampshire Spark Teams Meet & Greet (ALL NEW HAMPSHIRE SPARK TEAMS and ALL NEW HAMPSHIRE SPARK PEOPLE are invited to join) so we can put faces to names and share secrets and tips and good healthy food.
HAVE A GREAT WEDNESDAY! It's our Friday here, our weekend!
