2010 is the time to make changes in my life. I WILL start working out, eating healthier, and continue to be the best me I can be. I'm tired of making empty promises to myself - this year I will follow through, I will work hard, and I will make the change. It's time to put down the fork and knife and to pick up the walking shoes, more time with my family, and the confidence I know I have.

Ready or not, here I come 2010!

My Goals:
My goal is to get down to 145. I would also like to learn how to enjoy working out. I've struggled for years and know I need to find some form of physical activity that I enjoy. I'm also vowing to get more greens and good ol' H2O into my system!

My Program:
Mix of cardio 2/4x per week. More h2O please!!!

Trying not to deprive myself, but simply watching my portions and eating healthier overall!

    Hey! Thanks for the comment. Yes I really love Slim in 6. It has just been a really great program for me. There isn't a lot of jumping around and it tends to help me relax.

    There are 3 different workouts: Start It Up, Ramp It Up, and Burn It Up. It also comes with Slim and Six Pack and Slim and Limber. Oh and it comes with a great nutrition guide, the resistance band, a measuring tape, a great little book to record your progress, etc.

    Start It Up: This is a 20 minute workout and basically teaches you the moves. Once you have done it a couple times, they recommend you move on.

    Ramp It Up: This is my favorite one and the only one I do!! It is about 48 minutes and is a total body workout. You start with warming up, then cardio moves, standing ab work, lunges, squats, leg lifts, then move into the resistance band for the arms, back, and shoulders. Then leg lifts for your buns and thighs on the floor with some push ups in between. They hurt but I've seen amazing results with them. Then there is some floor ab work and then you finish out with yoga and stretching. So you definitely feel like you worked out your whole body when you are done. It is awesome!

    Burn It Up: I only did this once. It is a lot of the same moves in Ramp It Up only faster and harder. It hurt my back and was too crazy for me. So I have stuck with Ramp It Up. I'm sure if you did this one you would burn more calories though.

    So the program says to do Start It Up the first few days, then Ramp It Up the first 2 weeks, then Burn It Up the last 4 weeks. It is 6 days a week for 6 weeks and then you do the 10 minute Slim and Slimber stretching on the day off. (But I just do Ramp It Up instead of Burn It Up.)

    I think it is a great program. The moves are repetitive in that you do sets of them but that doesn't really bother me. Just when I am getting tired of the cardio and standing work, then it changes to the bands, and then the floor which is great. Everytime I definitely work up a good sweat and feel great after. If you have any questions let me know but yeah I definitely recommend it!
