Today's workout...

The FIRM Classic - Volume 1. I have this one on DVD - it is a bit cheesy, from the 80s, but a very effective areobic and weight training workout.
I didn't have time for the full 60 minutes today - homeschool teen group party on this a.m. - but I did about 45 minutes, maybe 50 minutes with the abs section.
Thanks Kristina for reminding me about this workout!
My eating has been okay to day, too - so far within calorie limits. :-)
How about you?

We went for a short walk!

Leonie said...

Maria - good for you re your walk!

Kristina, the workout was less challenging than I remember - but fun and I know I'll get DOMs tomorrow - esp from the floorwork!

HI Leonie-
I would love to do accountability with you all!

Do you have specific goals set up? Or just general lifestyle goals?

I have set up a goal to lose 10 pounds by Dec 31. I am down five so far.

I have also taken beginning measurements just to give myself some bearing. I don't want to get caught up in numbers, but the pounds do give me a sense of moving forward!

I have been working out a lot and doing strength training for some time an dlove it. I feel so much stronger. I wrote up some goals or 'why I am doing this'- to remind myself.

I am like you, I enjoy the workouts so don't have trouble getting them in. Plus my boys are older so I can leave to workout whenever I need-- so much easier then when they were little and I had to get very creative!

I am doing Weight Watchters online- no meetings- but a great tool to help me track what I eat. My ultimate goal is to learn this and have it come natrually again so I don't have to keep up. I got out of the habit... began eating for reasons other than hunger or sharing with others... so hope to get some self-discipline back.

Well, that is my tome! You all are welcome to join my blog and we can all be accountable together there.. or we can do it here!

Good luck! I will post my 'reasons why' if anyone is intersted. :)

I love having company on this 'journey'.. :)

Cindy - you have very specific goals, wtg!

Is your accountability blog separate to your usual blog? Am happy to join you here or there.

My goal is to continue my workouts for health and fitness, to manage all the holiday eating and to lose 4.5 kg to get to my original goal weight. I 'll probably want to go lower than that but I can't beleive I am so close to the original goal!
