working my butt off
Not really - my butt is still very much present and accounted for (haha). However, I have been working out a LOT lately. From Monday - Friday, I had worked out 7 hours. I haven't gotten anything done because we were gone until supper time (and I think that's partially why I am SO tired).
I've been using the Biggest Loser DVDs I got for Christmas (Boot Camp & Yoga) and a friend let me borrow her Cardio Max (BL, too). I tried that the other day & it whomped (is that a word?) my butt, but I liked it. And then my aerobics class meets twice a day and I try to do at least a half an hour a day on the Wii Fit Plus. I like to use that to jog or free step.
For as much as my body feels I've been working out (I am SORE); that scale has not significantly moved (and we had a Valentine's Day dinner last night at church so I'm fairly sure if I had lost anything, it was gained back haha). I do feel my body gaining muscle (which is cool). I feel stronger and more flexible, too. So I'm not as frustrated as I have been, but I would like to see the scale move (you know?). To be a smaller size (out of the pluses would be lovely). Although my friend Mandy says I'm too hard on myself (which I probably am), I've explained it to Big A this way: I'm not comfortable this way. I'm not comfortable at this size, this weight. I want to feel comfy with my body.
I said all this to tell you how excited I am that I won a giveaway for the Melt It Off workout system! My friend over at Flying Giggles and Lollipops, Michelle, used one of those random number generator things (is that anywhere close to what it's called?) and it picked me! She's seemed to have some success with this, so I'm really excited to try it. Also scared because it sounds hard haha!
But thank you, Michelle! I am ready to start; can't wait for it to get here (plus, I love mail). What a great Valentine's Day gift. And, Bob Harper, don't you worry; I won't leave you forever!
