Day Nine: Chest & Back
Day 9: Chest & Back (63 minutes) - I enjoy this workout. I still get annoyed by the instructor, but now just tune her out and focus on the work. Last week I felt a bit sore the next day, so I'm expecting that again. I guess the reason this w... Read more
Day Eight: Cardio
Day 8: Cardio (54 minutes) - Yay! The second week has begun!! I was thinking of adding something to this workout, but once I finished this morning, I was already late for work, so nothing additional but my usual walking. The workout was fine... Read more
Day Seven: XTF Arms
Day 7: XTF Arms (49 minutes) - This, as entitled, is all about the arms. The workout was OK. Simple, but effective. I don't know why this workout didn't grab me, though. There's just something lacking. Anyway, I do feel my arms got a good ... Read more
Day Six: Hard Core & Stretch
Day 6: Hard Core & Stretch (54 + 26 minutes) - Extremely nice easy day. The ab workout was good for sure, but not that taxing really, even if it was 54 minutes long. I'm sure I'll be sore tomorrow, but certainly didn't have a problem working ... Read more
Day Five: Cardio
Day 5: Cardio (54 minutes) - OK, back to the first workout again. I tried it with the music on, but didn't really get into the techno music. I did like the workout better this time, though. I was able to work harder than the first time and h... Read more
Day Four: XTF Legs
Day 4: XTF Legs (53 minutes) - Good leg strength training routine. It went fast (didn't even seem like it much time had gone by and then it was over). I enjoyed this very much. After that, I went to spin class. My legs are a bit sore, but n... Read more
Day Three: Circuit Burnout
Day 3: Circuit Burnout (80 minutes) - This was a great workout. I really like that there are so many options/levels to choose from during this workout. Also, going from higher heart rate to lower heart rate really makes you sweat. There are ... Read more
Day Two: Chest & Back
X-TrainFit: Chest & Back (63 minutes) - I finished Day 2 of this new program. I will be playing these workouts this week without any music so that I can hear all the instruction, with the plan that after seeing the video once, I can then play ... Read more
New Exercise Program - Day One: Cardio
Finally! Although two weeks ago I stated that I'd be back the next day with my plan, I wasn't. I was just coming back and decided not to overwhelm myself too much. I have been tracking my food every day. (I haven't always stayed within the c... Read more

New Way of Eating
I can't believe it's been since January that I wrote my last blog! Well, for those of you who don't know me, I had surgery at the end of January. I had been sick for a while and the doctors couldn't figure out what was wrong. I finally had to... Read more
How NOT to end the year!!!
