I did the Ripped in Thirty video again last night. 25 whole minutes including warm up and cool down and it just simply kicks my butt. This was my second attempt and I still found myself dripping with sweat within the first five minutes and begging for it to all end.
Which isn't to suggest I don't enjoy it. Because I do. I love it.
Unfortunately, I do not feel I've made any noticeable gains when it comes to my ability to keep up with the fitness models, yet. But I have only done it twice. If it were that easy, I wouldn't find it such a challenge.
I made it my goal to complete another series of The Firm. I have not done that, nor have I effectively worked toward it. I also have not even tried to complete and of the other video series I've got.
I think I skipped workout out three days in a row, but I have a hard time keeping track of these things on days that I work, unless I do the workouts in the morning. And I think I only managed one morning workout last week. But shoot, I don't actually even remember.
That's what Sparkpeople is for. But I haven't been using it as a very effective tool lately. My eating has fallen somewhere between good and "wtf was I thinking?" Which I think is about where my fitness is.
My weight is hovering, again. Okay, it's steadily going down, between the 5th and the 19th I've lost about 4 pounds, which I understand is a fairly healthy way to do things. But I want huge losses that stay gone. In fact, looking back, I'm pretty much doing what I've done this entire time. Steadily, but slowly lost weight. It's a bit much to expect to go all Biggest Loser, but I, like so many, love my instant gratification.
No, I'll be satisfied with what I'm accomplishing and not whine about it. I'm doing great.
On a related note, I pulled out some of the pants I stopped wearing a while back due to the seasons or because they stopped fitting. At least two of them don't fit, now, because they're too big. That's both exciting (wow, I've lost that many inches?!?) and annoying (Great, I'm going to have to buy new clothes).
