2014 is my favorite so far.

Tuesday, January 21, 2014

Hello, my lovelies. I have missed 2 days out of 9 working out these past weeks, and I think 2 in 9 can technically constitute "rest days." What has been fun about all this (besides the elevated mood and energy levels) has been making a dent in trying all these workout DVDs I've purchased and not tried. I've enjoyed all of the kickboxing (This is Tae Bo, Gaiam's Cardio Kickboxing, and yummy Guillermo Gomez's Martial Fusion.) Those are keepers. I've loved my Leslie Sansone, which is funny, as she is kind of dorky. But I break a sweat and get my heartrate up without feeling like I'm going to die, and she kind of makes me smile at her dorky. I did not enjoy Crunch's Dance Party, which is unfortunate, since I love to dance. The goofy smiles, and the fact that I had trouble finding alternate moves for moves I couldn't do on my carpet irritated me. I also walked on the treadmill and did some Sparkpeople videos. Coach Nicole likes to kick my butt.
Unfortunately, with all this extra activity (and the water...so much water,) I only lost a pound this week. Because, as we all know, weight loss is, like, 90% food. Stupid math. I've been tracking most of the week, which is a big step for me (you would think, since I've been on Sparkpeople for 5 years, I'd have been doing this by now.) I just have to knock down my portions. It's a sad thing when we love food so very much. It's that "I will never again be allowed to have this thing in front of me, and I very well may starve tomorrow if I don't eat all of it RIGHT NOW!" mindset. This is something I will be working on a lot over the next few weeks.

    I just got some new yoga gear and a DVD from Gaiam. Can't wait for them to get here! Have fun working out! (And do remember rest days, they're good for muscle recovery.)

    Good JOB!! Keep going...but do give yourself a break now and then. You don't want to burn out and your body does need a rest each week.

    Ooh, good idea. I'll keep that one in mind.

    I always tells myself 'if you bite it, you write it' (down in my food journal) .
    I also do Leslie's DVDs, sometimes when she'd get on my nerves too much I'd mute the tv and turn up some good, fast paced music.
    Good luck!
