Eight Mighty Minutes

Tuesday, June 12, 2012

I tried Coach Nicole's 8-minute cardio interval work out video tonight. That woman means business! Who knew a person could work so hard in less than 10 minutes? My usual cardio is 20 minutes long, so I did this twice in a row...not necessary.

Without the suggested modifications, this work out is more like a medium impact. For that reason, I might only do it once a week.

Throw open a couple of windows, you're going to get heated up:

Coach Nicole is my hero! emoticon


Line Dancing

Friday, June 08, 2012

During the final week of school, the students wanted to line dance. Every 30 minutes began another class and more line dancing. Sweaty and exhaused describes how I felt at the end of each day. Man, those kids really like Cotton Eyed Joe!

How well did I follow my 2000 calorie per day limit this week? Check it out:

Sat., June 2 1,992
Sun., June 3 - 1,994
Mon., June 4 2,000
Tues., June 5 2,000 ?
Wed., June 6 2,500+ ?
Thurs., June 7 2,742
Fri., June 8 2,118

My total exhaustion took control by the end of the week and I was not eating the healthy things I normally do (I ate what was quick and nearby). AND I was not keeping track well.

Tomorrow is a new day. emoticon

Bollywood Dance video!

Thursday, June 07, 2012

I tried the Bollywood 14-minute dance video workout tonight. It was great fun! It is high impact and difficult to do in would work better. Perhaps I'll do the high impact portions on the mini trampoline.

The Bollywood Dance workout is a sassy, high energy video:

I plan to do it again soon. emoticon

That's progress. I'm feeling positive.

Saturday, June 02, 2012

My week, calorie-wise, was stellar until Thursday. Usually, when I exceed my calorie limit, it is due to a lack of meal planning. On Thursday and Friday I was within my limits and decided to go over. Grades are due on Monday and I was feeling the pressure.

Before SP, a 'binge' would have meant more than 300 calories. That is progress, so I'm still feeling positive.

Saturday, May 26 1,596
Sunday, May 27 1,917
Monday, May 28 1,721
Tuesday, May 29 1,865
Wednesday, May 30 1,953
Thursday, May 31 2,322
Friday, June 1 2,356

    You are doing great!

My goal for June is track every day and stay within my calorie limit...which I think I already blew for yesterday. I need to stop "visiting" and go back and finish entering. Time to self correct!

Have a great weekend...

Inflatable Jumpy

Saturday, May 26, 2012

Yesterday was Field Day and my entire workplace participated in fun activities outside. The highlight of the experience was the inflatable Jumpy. What fun to race someone through a maze of inflated obstacles and end by plunging down a tall slide!

Yesterday evening, my husband found a live band and we went dancing. An active end to a busy and active week. It's a good life.

Man, it was a busy week. I'm not sure if I can credit my will power with the success I had staying within my calorie limit (2000/day). Probably, I was simply too busy to eat too much. Time will reveal the strength of my willpower.

Here are my calories for the week

Sat., May 19, - 2142
Sun., May 20 - 1889
Mon., May 21 - 1999
Tues., May 22 - 1713
Wed., May 23 - 1998
Thurs., May 24 - 1565
Fri., May 25 - 1892 emoticon
