Working Out

Like a lot of Americans I have felt that I could stand to lose a few pounds lately. I've had this complaint for a couple years, but my upcoming cruise has finally been motivation enough for me to start doing something about it.

A while ago I bought a workout DVD that I really like. It is indoor walking that also adds little bursts of intensity to help burn more fat, and one segment includes weights. I love this video because it is do-able. I don't enjoy setting myself up to fail. I feel that a diet wouldn't work because I don't have the self control to stop eating yummy foods that aren't so good for you. So since I don't want to set myself up to fail, my plan is to work out everyday with a video I feel I can succeed with. I have now been doing this workout plan for 7 weeks and it is going good.

A few weeks ago I read about the Biggest Loser workout video and I purchased one of those. This DVD will totally kick your trash. It is a lot more intense than my previous movie and I find myself battling with myself about whether or not I am going to work out. I don't want to fight, I just want to do it. So I think I need to try a different movie. Any suggestions?

I have enjoyed bettering myself. I think I have probably lost 2-3 pounds. I am shooting for 10 pounds. I don't own a scale because I don't think I would be able to control how many times a day or week I would get on it, so I'm going by how my clothes fit me. I'm trying to get down one pant size and my reward will be getting a new dress for my upcoming cruise!! Go me!
