A New Month

Thursday, August 02, 2012

So I stopped the January Jump Start Challenge. I have been going to the gym here in the apartments and feel like I am pushing myself more there then I do with the videos. I still do them some days when i need a change. Just because I stopped this challenge doesn't mean I am not working out. I have made fitness minute goals and I tend to beat them!

I am still doing the stress busting challenge. I didn't fully complete week 1, so I am doing it again before moving on to week 2. It's funny, I am only worried about my stress when it gets to the point that I am suffering. I need to get my stress out before it gets bottled up and pressurized. That is the whole point so I need to start doing it.

I met with my aunt and she helped me create a budget. It is going to take some discipline, but
we will soon be on the track to a life of less debt and more saving and goal making!

I tried out the resistance bands at the gym. I liked them, but didn't feel that I got as good as a work out if I use the machines or weights. I would like to have one though for travel (not that I do much right now). Thank you everyone for letting me know about how cheap they were and where you got them. :)

My weight loss has slowed down, but I am seeing the changes in my body. I feel stronger and a little bit tighter.

Well enough about me...

    I agree with you on the resistance bands. Definitely not as effective as the equipment at the gym. However, they are good for at home when you can't make it to the gym, and like you mentioned, they would be good for travel.

    Sounds to me like you are doing a kick a$$ job in all aspects of your life and getting things together. Keep it up my friend!!

    Great blog! You do have to change up your exercises to stay interested and motivated.

    Belive it or not money worries are a real stressor. Your aunt gave you a great start to getting money under control.
