1/10/09 Workout

I did 13 minutes of workout on the Denise Austin’s Pilates DVD. Not quite the workout I was looking for, but it is better than not doing anything. It’s very difficult for me to do most of the moves, but I try and I can feel it. I am looking for more of a stretching workout like the yoga moves. I have her program set to record starting Monday. I hope that’s more of what I have in mind until we get our Wii system fixed.


Fitness update

I have not been to Curves since mid October because we were getting our bathrooms remodeled.

Then, hubby got a change in his pay structure. He was put on salary. He had been working a lot of overtime. Promotion plus salary equals less income coming into the house.

I needed to look for ways to decrease spending and Curves was the first on the list. I think that had we not had a Wii Fit, I would have had a more difficult time with this.

So, today, after a little over 2 months since I’ve last worked out, I got out the Wii Fit and did my body test, 10 minutes of yoga and 10 minutes of aerobics.

Because it had been 87 days(!!!!!) since my last Body Test, I set a more realistic goal of 2 lbs in 2 weeks. Of course I would like to do more, but I know me. So, we shall see. I wanted to be able to accomplish more, however, the aerobics were killing my thighs. I kept hearing, don’t overdo it or you won’t get back on tomorrow.

So, as I say goodbye to Curves, I am so thankful for the time I had with them. I learned that I could lose weight and get into shape as long as I stick to it. I also learned that it feels good to exercise, well, at least the results of exercising are exhilirating even if the process hurts. 🙂

I logged 20 minutes of workout time on the Wii today. Feels good to finally be able to accomplish some fitness finally.


I exercised today. It was the first time since June 9. I could feel that I gained weight and last night I just knew I needed to start up again. Although it was difficult, I could tell that my body so desperately needed this. It was good to get back in it again. I was glad when the 25 minutes were over, but I was also happy that I did it.
