This was a great week. I kept to my diet and stuck to my exercise routine. Except for a couple of beers Friday night, I did really well. I think I could have lost a pound or two more, but you have to enjoy life a little. I’m on a journey to get my life back. It’s not a race so I’m in no super hurry.
This week I started the Power 90 workout series and I’ll tell you it was tough. The Circuit works out 5 different muscle areas, 3 sets, 15 reps. You start with your chest, then your back, your triceps, then biceps and finish with your quads and legs. The first time I tried the workout I picked up too much weight for some of the exercises and ended up really sore the next day with some pain in my shoulder. I took it rather easy the next time and now I’m moving along fine.
The Aerobic work was pretty tough to start out with as well with 5 minutes of power yoga followed by intense cardio and ending with 100 sit-ups, and not easy ones. The first time I tried this I made it through the whole routine but I took a lot of breaks and just watched some of the exercises. The second time through I finished every exercise and tried to do the whole workout at the same intensity they did in the video. I’d say I made it through about 75% at full intensity and I finished all 100 sit-ups.
This week’s weight loss – 3.4 lbs for a current weight of 335 lbs.
