My goal in January 2013 was to not be fat and forty. I had a specific weight I wanted to weigh by my 40th birthday. Unfortunately I didn't make that goal. I really wanted to, but not bad enough apparently. In 2013 I lost 45 lbs. In 2014 I have n... Read more

Today we did the Plyo HIIT 2 of Les Mills Combat. It was definitely a good workout. I like the squats with the running, the side plank or hover, and the energy involved in these workouts. I like the ones for cardio a bit more than the HIIT as my... Read more

Gordie and I started Les Mills Combat today and did Combat 30. I absolutely loved it. I like the intensity and the kickboxing/martial arts involved. I did notice that they don't stretch much before the workout so I will need to stretch before tu... Read more

This is not good. Too much junk food in the house. I need an extra large dose of will power and determination. We didn't go trick or treating, but we did go to a church Fun Fest, and the kids brought back lots of cookies, cupcakes, and candy. I ... Read more

I did day 4 Cardio Recovery. It wasn't what I expected. It was a lot of stretching and strange moves. Definitely my least favorite so far. Anyway, I still felt like I wanted more of a workout. I did the Turbo Jam Lower Body dvd also. Someone com... Read more
