Putting the Spud through the machine

Alex and I were talking the other day and we decided that a once a week update of the blog should be the minimum since we're working out apart.. unless of course something noteworthy happens.  So don't feel like I'm slacking off, or hiding from everyone... I'm still kicking ass and taking names... just really slowly hahaha

So, this week... working on level 4... and it is KICKING MY A$$!!  lol but in a good way.... i think.

Here is what level 4 looks like
5 mins warm-up walk
3 mins run
1:30 min walk
5 mins run
2:30 walk
3 mins run
2:30 walk
5 mins run
5 mins cool down walk

PHEW!  So it was hard and on top of that I also did one session at home on my eliptical machine and that had well... torrents of sweat pouring down LOL  Poor John came home from the store and wondered what all the heavy breathing was about :P

I'm definitely going to repeat this level again next week.. and maybe the week after :P  Xmas is coming and I'm not sure how I'll manage with keeping up the workout, but I've been watching the Biggest Loser for the first time and that show really inspires me a lot.  I don't think I could loose 100 pounds in 6 months or whateer crazy thing they do because I've got to work for a living and sleep at some point in my day hahaha  But I think 3 good sessions of running, plus the swimming and then a few days of working on the treadmill or my eliptical at home should really help with stamina, strength and maybe even some more inches/pounds gone.

I'll say one thing... if I had the cash, I would buy that Bodybugg (tm) that they use on the contestants... it tells you how many calories consumed and how many calories burned... that would be some awesome information to have .. expecially to see how much your exercise is making a difference.... but the damn thing is about 200+ dollars plus there is a membership to a website to manage the data from the arm band and the wrist watch.... siigh... a girl can dream right? LOL

  1. A girl should dream... out loud to John... especially in the weeks before Christmas ;)

    If not for the Bodybugg, the Running Room jackets would be a nice gift!
