well i went to do my workout today--very sore from doing lunges and squats yesterday. so i went to do it, though, and found out that stupid exercise tv took most of ms. leslie's videos off of their ondemand service. jerkfaces.
i just cant do squats and lunges. i mean, i can.. but i dont like them and i sure as heck dont like the pain that goes along with it. and i stretched out great yesterday. today, its like a nine minute process to lower myself to the toilet.
i looked at their website, and they maintain that they have not only all of the workouts ive been doing on their site but also two different ms. leslie videos.
so i think i am going to contact them, see whats up.

meanwhile, i didnt give up when i wanted to today. the workouts that are left on there arent my favorite (family walk and the walk and tone, oh and the kids walk)
so i did those repeatedly today and got in 170 minutes of low impact aerobics.
i also dvr-ed some workouts from fit tv--gilad, shimmy, some sort of yoga. it will keep me going until i can get some videos from netflix.

oh. i also weighed in at 219 today. except, when i hopped back on after getting the camera, it said 220. either way, i am pleased. i am beginning to like my body for the most part. until i get a real glimpse of myself in the mirror that is. but i am more comfortable in my skin now and i *think* i am getting back to the real me.
at least, i am meeting people's eyes more and am not embarrassed constantly to be me.
well the physical me.

tomorrow: goal is to get to 200 minutes again.
strength training. (had to switch from today because i am yoga sore)

    Ha! It's funny how the more you work out those muscles, the lower that toilet seems to get, Awesome job as usual on the workouts. And CONGRATULATIONS on seeing 219!!! Let's hope those 20's are behind both of us.

    Hope you find some workout videos that you enjoy. I dug out my beachbody strength training tapes the other day and I'm going to start using them. I do lots of aerobic type things, but not enough strength training. My husband finished painting my workout room. I have no more excuses.

    That stinks about the walking vids being gone. Wonder why they don't show up? You're doing great, and the fact that you're getting comfortable in your own skin now. I look forward to that day! Great job girl. Hope you have a good day ;)

    That's awesome! I love having Exercise TV on demand. I did Ms. Leslie's family walk this morning for the first time and it was pretty good. I am so excited for you!

    Aw man, that is a bummer about the on demand vids. My television service doesn't offer anything like that so I have just always stuck with Leslie's DVDs. I hope things work out the best for you and that you are able to keep your workouts right on track. You are kickin butt girl! emoticon

    Ignore the mirror, you are awesome!! I hope those dvr'd programs turn out good for you. Be careful with the at home yoga, I've heard of people throwing their back out or hurting themselves in other ways doing moves incorrectly. (I love to do yoga in a class, because then the nice lady comes up and says, "ok, that's great that you can do that, but if you move another inch you may feel a bit of pain. More like a lot of pain. Don't do that again." I kind of like to be warned about that rather than finding out after a bad version of down-dog. Stupid down-dog.)
    Anyway. WOO HOO!! GO DEE !! I bet the scale just got so excited that you are at 219 that it didn't know what to do and in it's excitement for you hopped back up. It's totally the scale's fault. It was jumping for joy, I'm telling you.
    Again...I'm totally amazed at the pure time you put into exercising. I'm trying to do more, but I don't think I could do that much! 45 minutes in the gym, then a 40 minute walk with my dog were enough for me to call it a day!
    Hope you have a lovely evening, and good luck on your 200 minute goal tomorrow!!
