Last Friday I introduced you to ShapelyGirl Fitness, and shared my plans for getting in shape this month.
Originally I was going to share weight and measurements each week. However, since I’ve been working pretty hard at this, I am kinda scared to get on the scales. You know, when you work so hard for something, and see no results, it’s easy to get discouraged.
So, at this point, I will not be getting on the scales or making measurements until the end of the month. Can anyone else relate to my crazy fear of the scales?
I used the Let’s Get Moving DVD for the first time on Saturday. I took it up to the home I work at and invited the other ladies to do it with me. This is a group home for adults with different forms of Developmental Disabilities. In terms of easy steps and routines, this is a simple work out. The only lady who chose to do it with me was able to keep up and do it along with me. In terms of intensity, she did quit after only 10 minutes, so I finished alone. 🙂
So it’s a simple workout, but it does get your blood pumping and you will feel the buuuurrrn!
I have since used the DVD twice. I’ve also started walking even more. Yesterday I put the little girl I watch in her stroller and walked 20 minutes to McDonalds. I’ve done that before, but on the way back I pushed myself to run three different times for about a minute each time. Harper loved it, she leans forwards and spreads her arms wide, screaming wheeee! My legs were screaming too. But that’s ok 🙂
The above quote is pretty true. Even though my legs hurt from yesterday, I went out for a quick walk this morning before work.
So while I’m not sure if I am losing weight, I am enjoying my attempts to lose!
