- Have Patients. It takes time to see results. Your dream body won’t happen overnight. Continue reading
So I decided that it would be a great idea to start the Insanity Workout. Day one was the fit test and even that wore me out pretty fast. I’ll be keeping track of my Insanity fit test results as I do them and hopefully see improvement and learn to do push ups. Ha. That’s always been the one thing I can’t do no matter up. Not even one. So I just did something else so I was still moving.

After my quick glimpse into what the future held for me with the Insanity workout day 2 rolled around and it was time to do Plyometric Cardio Circuit. It started out with a good warm up and stretches and than got to business and had me dripping sweat by the end. Since cooling down from the workout and I have more energy and waiting to start day 3. No weights are required with this exercise program.
I came across a Squat challenge on pinterest and decided to give it a go. If you want feel free to join in.

Weight Loss Update: Week 4
Date Stated: January 3rd, 2013
Current Weight Lost For Week #4: 7lbs
Exercise: Zumba Core – Xbox Kinect & Daily walks of at least 60 minutes
Diet: Just tying to eat better and make healthy food choices. I’m currently counting calories and stick around 1200 a day.
Thoughts: This is the longest that I’ve actually kept up with my weight loss and stayed on track. It gets easier everyday I’ve noticed. I have been doing great and cutting back on junk food snacking and been exercising 5 days a week. Sometimes 6 days since I’m starting to really like having a good work out daily. I’ve been thinking of throwing in an exercise DVD to the mix also. In the past I’ve used the 30 day shred and liked it, but I want to try something else. I have had my eye on Brazil Butt Lift Workout. So, if anyone has done that one let me know how it is and if you had any success with it
p.s. Posted this late for week #4, but I’m down another pound! Total of 8 lbs that I won’t miss. Yay February is off to a good start.
My New Year’s Resolution for 2013 is Weight Loss. Like many others this is the top of my list and hopefully I can stick with it. So far I’m doing pretty well and I am noticing a slight difference after only 2 weeks. I stated working out 5 days a week doing Zumba Fitness Core for Xbox Kinect. Which I love since it’s such a fun exercise and it really burns the calories. Also, I can do it in the privacy of my own home since well let me be honest I’m not the best dancer. I’ll probably look into some more fitness games for the Kinect, but for now this is working and gets me active. I also do a 50 minute walk daily sometimes more on nice days.
Some things I’ve been doing
- Counting my calories on MyFitnessPal.com & using the MyFitnessPal App when out
- Drinking more water
- Cut down on snacking 24/7 (this was one of my biggest problems)
- Daily Exercise
- Portion control
- I traded in coffee for tea with no sugar or milk added
In the two weeks doing this I’m down 5 lbs. Slow and steady will win this race. It’s going to take some time, but it’s January I have some time before summer comes. If your also on a weight loss journey of your own feel free to friend me on MyFitnessPal. It’s a good site for keeping track of your calories, daily exercise, get tips and meet others that have similar goals.
