My New Workout, and My Spring Goal

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Tuesday, February 12, 2013




Today is day 46 of my current streak of being on track with eating and exercise!

On Saturday, I blogged about my Valentines Day gift from hubby, which was a new workout! Its a kettle bell workout for beginners and it came with a DVD which has 4 workouts on it, plus two kettle bells...3 lbs and 5 lbs. This is the workout I got;

tion/dp/B002Y2SUYK


So far, I am really loving this workout! Since Saturday (when I first started working out with it) I have done all the workouts at least once. The 4 workouts are; Upper Body, Buns & Thighs, Core, and Fat Burning. My favorite workouts are the Upper Body and Fat Burning. They really get my heart rate up and make me sweat!

I really think this is a good workout to get me introduced to kettle bell workouts. I can tell already that I will want to stick with this. Its actually a fun way to exercise. I do two workouts at a time, and even though that is almost 40 minutes, the time sure does fly!



By the way...there are 35 days until Spring! Why not set a goal for yourself to reach by then? Its always fun to have something to aim for! My own goal for Spring is to be able to fit into my "Curves Chick" t shirt. I don't go to Curves anymore so I guess I'm not a Curves Chick...but its a cute t shirt and I want to be able to wear it! I've had it ever since I won it in a drawing back in 2007, when I was a Curves member. Its been hanging in the closet all that time, because it was always too small for me and I was too stubborn to give it away! (Its my favorite color, after all!)

So now that shirt is hanging on the front of the closet door instead of hiding inside. I see it every day and it keeps me motivated. I'm really hoping to be able to wear it by the first day of Spring. Wish me luck! I'm working hard for that!




My personal theme for the month is to be my own Valentine. That means that I will love myself enough to appreciate my body, to be as healthy as I possibly can be, and to never forget that I am worth my best effort every day! As my Sparkfriend Annasgoals says..."Be fierce!" And I am going to be fierce about loving myself...not just in February, but all year long.

  Awesome! I did a kettle workout & it was good -I had ordered a too heavy of bell though & ending up hurting myself-live & learn on that one-but it is fun to do. Glad you are enjoying it. Goals are great! Thanks for sharing them. I have my Feb. goal set -well I have each month goal set up until first week of June -by then it will be amusement park time to kick in-so the main goal is to make sure I fit in those rides without too many problems. I'm focused on toning a lot more-I started jog/run again & doing a lot more dance & aerobics this month. Trying to tone my arms a bit too. I agree we all need to LOVE OURSELVES~Wishing you a wonderful Valentine's Day~ (((HUGS)) emoticon

    way to go and good luck I love it when you find a new work out DVD to love I'm thinking about the Les Mills body pump by Beach Body mega bucks put I do P90X2 and P90x now and I love them I'm getting a little bored and would like something to switch in up . Well I just check the price to see if I could maybe saving a few $'s a day to get it by spring not going to happen but I will start saving and maybe by summer. Wish I had a habit ,smoking, getting coffee out, eating out(more than once a month) drinking ect something I could give up to save money If I just wasn't do cheap to start with emoticon lol
