I have the DVD and I SO want to do this. I have yet to do the whole thing for a couple reasons. One, I started running and I didn't want the extra bits of cardio. And two, once I got to my goal weight, I was trying to adjust my calories to maintain and the thought of running and doing something designed to help you lose weight scared me.
Currently I do the exercises from the first segment when I strength train, but I don't formally do the DVD.
My concerns now with doing the challenge are similar. I have my calories figured out and honestly sometimes struggle with eating enough calories every day. So the thought of burning a lot more concerns me. It's not so much that I can't get the calories it's that I'm worried I'll turn to unhealthy foods to get them when I run out of ideas.
My other concern is completely frivolous. My anniversary is in February and I'm not sure yet what we're doing. I was considereing a couple nights away and that might interfere with having time. And if I'm going to do it I'm in 100% so I'll kill myself with guilt if I have to miss a couple days. Silly? I don't know.
I'm still leaning towards doing it. Strongly leaning towards it. I NEED the toning. I know I'm not going to get rid off my saggy skin, but I do see some improvement with ST.
My partner of course says to do whatever I want and she also says you know you don't have to at all, no one is making you. And she's right. In all honestly she doesn't completely buy into all the fitness stuff I do, but she knows it makes me happy. She's done great losing on her own without really working out. She has 20 lbs to go and I know she'll get there. I just can't talk her into the fact that if she'd just get on the treadmill it would be easier. She's a stubborn one.
I know when it warms up there will be hiking and kayaking with her so that will help too.
Wow I kind of went off there, sorry.
So, my tentative answer is yes.
