Well… here it is, Friday and I’m ready to weigh in officially for the first time! I just started all of this on Monday so my days are a little short! I joined this meme on this blog Bye Bye Fat Mom to help me with this, I am sooo glad I found her last week.
Luckily here where I work, they spent some money to purchase a good scale so I will be using that same one every week! (I’ll put my weight up later on when I go next door and weigh myself.)
Here is what my week looked like.
I am doing all of my workouts with Comcast on Demand. They have a great exercise channel there where I can choose my workouts and change things up.
Monday: Jillian Michaels 30 day Shred Workout.
Opinion: This is a great workout! It’s hardcore, and by the end of it I’m panting and pouring sweat, but I’m totally energetic! She is one of the greatest motivational coaches when you are working out, it’s like she knows when you want to give up, and gives you the encouragement right then. I love this workout!
Tuesday: Carmen Electra StripTease Workout
Opinion: Wow, this workout is NOT for the faint of heart. By the end of it you are hoping no one watched you because they might get the wrong idea. Carmen Electra is not the best coach or very good at leading a workout, but she looks good, and that is enough. You feel amazing afterwards though.
Wednesday: Jillian Michaels 30 day Shred Workout
Thursday: Ballet Butt / Slow and Sensual
Ballet Opinion: It was good, cute. Very short, only two minutes long.
Slow and Sensual Opinion: It was a basic belly dancing work out. Really nice! My daughter and I started doing it together and I was surprised how good this worked. Lots of hip movements!
I realized that I consume TOO much cholesterol. I have been using this internet food site and it has helped me figure out my food consumption and calorie count.
The site is: http://www.thedailyplate.com
My calories for each day of the week:
Monday: Net calories: 1,481
Tuesday: Net calories: 1,941
Wednesday: Net calories: 1,481
Motivational blog: This is a great article for those who have been doing this for a while, and a good one for me to come back to when I’m having issues with this weight loss!
"Losing it" with Andrea McMann
Personal Motivation: Bye Bye Fat Mom blog owner Natalie has started something for herself that I think is great. Here is her motivational concept.
~I've really been struggling to stay motivated lately. So I came up with something and I ran it by my husband last night. Starting today I'll earn 50 cents every day I work out. BUT...everyday I don't exercise I lose a dollar, I get one rest day a week. Once my total is $50 I can take the money and do whatever I want with it. Sure, it will take a long time to earn $50, but we're poor so once I earn it I'll definitely enjoy it.~
I hope this helps everyone keep going!
