I am still on my quest to drop the pounds. I have hit a plateau and it is really hard not to be pissed that my husband J is dropping it in 5-10 pound increments. I know I can't compare to him, but man it just seems so easy for him and he's still eating a lot. I have been for the most part really keeping track of calories thinking maybe I was eating too many, but I am around 1600 for a day and burning 600 of those at least 4 times a week plus 2 days of video workouts. Hopefully something happens soon.I do know I am back to fitting in all of my lowest weight clothes, except for a pair of work pants.
Anyway, I am now really liking Jackie Warner, I caught a few episodes of Workout, they were airing on Bravo to gear up for her new show Thintervention, which is pretty good. I found a dvd of hers pretty cheap called Power Circuit Training. I really like this one. It gives four, fifteen minute targeted(abs, lower body, upper body, and full body), or a full forty minute workout. I did the 15 min full body one the day I got it in the evening of one of my off days since I was feeling guilty about not having exercised, it was easy to get through and I though well we'll see. I actually was sore the next day and thought hmmm, I've been doing a few of these moves on The Shred and haven't felt like this. I did the 40 min workout and pretty much breezed through upper and lower body, but had a hard time with the upper abs. Yeah, I could barely walk the next day, my glutes were so sore it hurt to sit down. This DVD is a keeper. It is easy to get through, the moves are not that hard, but when I can feel it 2-3 days after yet, it must be working. Jackie is a nice change of pace from Jillian since she is much more hmmm how do I put it, nice? encouraging? I love Jillian, but sometimes she irritates me. Knowing they both started a gym together, I see the similarities in their work outs and they both must have used the same sets for their videos and just moved equipment around.
I have been struggling with the running. I am making myself run at least 3 miles, but I have been running them at a slower pace than I when I was alternating running and walking. I don't know, but it took me for-evah to get to 3 miles and J is just cruising along after a month, I hate him. I am hitting 4 miles now and then and should really be happy with that and keep on keeping on and not get upset about J. A friend of mine posted this on facebook and I'm just going to think about that when I'm running.
