Tough workout, but I did it

Saturday, February 04, 2012

I had a great week on the nutrition front and a good week on the exercise front. The results, a 1 lb. gain. I'll be 53 in a couple days and the weight goes up and down instead of just down. I've never had this problem before. Frustrating, but I know it will move if I keep up with the workouts. I wear a Go Wear Fit so I know I had a deficit everyday.
I bought a new workout a couple months ago and hadn't tried it yet. I felt like I needed to ease into it. Today, I decided I'd give it a go and just do what I could. My arms and legs are like jello. It was really hard but I got through it. The title sounds kind of cheesy, but boy was it tough. Valerie Waters trains some celebs for movies and it's called Action Hero Babe. It has 3 DVDs and you do each one once a week. Today was build, then burn, then sculpt. You do cardio and/ or yoga on the other 3 days with one day of rest. The ball exercises have always been my nemesis. I don't have great balance and am not very strong yet so I wasn't able to complete everything on the third circuit. I'm ok with that. After 2 other circuits of lifting heavy I was worn out.
We got a little snow this morning. Hopefully that's the end of it. My daughter is making dinner for us tonight. She's keeping it healthy for me!

    Your daughter is sweet to fix you a meal tailor-made for your benefit. THe workout sounds great. Just think, because you struggle with balance, how much you will notice the results after you do this workout for awhile. Struggling to maintain balance, while on the ball, builds strenghth of course, so...the more the struggle, the better the strength gain. Enjoy your healthy dinner!
