Day 3 - Hip Hop Abs - Ab Sculpt 1

I am a lump.

Such a lump.

I'm not that big of a lump, I just have higher expectations than my potato body does...

Ab Sculpt 1 mixes cardio with pilates...which sounds somewhat easy (a comfy yoga mat is involved in the last half). It lies.

I was going strong til the 3rd straight minute of leg lifts when Shaun T went into double time with 8 lifts on each leg! I am realistic so I can admit to you that I did not do it all...I took breaks so I would be able to move for the rest of the DVD. Leg lifts have always sucked major ass for me.

But I did make it, albeit wobbly and modified with breaks...but for day 3 I made it!

Drinking my Shakeology now (I cost 130 dollars for a bag!) and then my ritual of body brushing and actually showering as I is naaaaasty....

Day 2 Hip Hop Abs - Fat Burning Cardio 1

This sucks.

Once again I am trying to get back on my exercise/health kick after a dismal failure when I discovered I can't see results after 1 week. Luckily Shaun T did not judge me - he was just as funny and encouraging as ever. I am wobbly with the moves, but getting better. Doing the modified moves for now.

This time I made myself more accountable...I took measurements and my weight and basically pace in my room til I turn on my blu-ray player.

I've also decided that my 24 plus ounces of sweet tea is not helping my belly fat nor is my sweet tooth (I've been known to eat a tablespoon of confectioner's sugar out of the bag just for the hell of it -- put your judging eyes away).

I'm drinking green tea in the morning instead of coffee with ID Pumpkin Spice (maybe on my rest day I will cheat) and I'm trying to substitute my sugar drinks for fake sugar crystal lite and propel powdered drinks.

I also am drinking my 10 ounces of lactose free milk with chocolate Shakeology after my workout for a protein/vitamin boost on my metabolism.

If it counts since yesterday I lost 0.6lbs! lol

Now the real test of my devotion...posting my "totally relaxed" before photo as of 11/25/13!
