Fitness goals this fall and winter...
Wednesday, October 31, 2012
Since I couldn't get out to the gym during Hurricane Sandy's visit to the east coast, I decided to do one of my workout DVDs that I haven't done in a while. I am a fan of Cathe Friedrich, a no nonsense step aerobics and strength training dvd instructor! She is better known as just "Cathe". I bought her Athletic Training low impact circuit training dvd and only used it a few times, so I pulled that one out and did it yesterday afternoon...my legs were sore this morning! She is a power house and I find her workouts to be challenging and I always get a great workout when I do them.
She is coming out with a 90 day program (also has a 30 day option) called Xtrain that I pre-ordered and can't wait for it to come out!! Its due in late fall/early winter and I can't wait to get started. This program will carry me on into almost spring!! I will still incorporate my outside running with the program because believe me, I do not want to have to start all over with my running progress!!
I'll share more about the program when I get it in my hands!!
I won't be making my goal of entering into maintenence mode by the end of the year. I have been in maintenence mode in the high 190s/low 200s since the spring. I have continued to exercise, but my eating has been all over the place...when I eat correctly my weight goes down. When I eat what I want here and there and (sometimes) everywhere it goes up slightly or stays the same...which would ok if I was at my goal, but I am not. I have to buckle down, get back serious and get this done. Fall/winter is the best time of year for me to do just that and I hope with this Xtrain program coming, that will give me the boost that I need to finally get to my goal.
