Finding a routine

So, I’m 9 days in and I lost 7 pounds so far. I am very happy with that! I have 37.5 pounds to go before I hit Onederland, I can’t wait to get there. I have been in the 200’s since 2009, and I am ready to leave, people!

I have to tell you, when I went for my lunchtime walk yesterday I felt a huge difference, power wise. I was able to walk much faster, and for longer without feeling pain. It is only a little over a week and I am seeing a difference with my stamina. I want to buy some cardio dance DVD’s to workout at home with so I can get an even better burn at night. I probably have to wait for my next check in two weeks because this is my “rent check”, but I am going to start browsing to see which ones look fun. I would love to get Zumba! I have a pair of 3 pound free weights at home that I need to find, they’ve gone missing since we moved to my apartment but they’re around somewhere!

This weekend I will start a strength training routine for myself to do at night, and I am going to start doing abdominal crunches and squats & lunges as well. I know it will help me to firm up some more—and I could use that! :)

  1. Sounds like a plan!! Wish I could recommend some dance dvds, but I don't have any! However, I do recommend cardio pilates with ana caban, Walk, Scuplt, and Tone with Debbie Rocker and if you want to get into some yoga, anything with Rodney Yee is good! All of these are gaiam dvds.

    Hope you have a great week!
