So if you know me at all, you would know that recently I lost 45 pounds... Sometime after Christmas and before New Years, I got sick of complaining, and decided it was the time for action... I had a little money left over from Holiday photo shoots, and thought that I should reward myself. I went to Kmart (yea, its kind of ghetto, but EXTREMELY close) and bought the Wii Fit Plus. Best.Best.Best $100.00 I have ever (well maybe not ever, ever, but close) spent.
I started working out with the Wii Fit everyday. My goal was to burn 500 extra calories a day. I did really good.... Skateboarding arena is my favorite. Bet I could totally beat you, too!! In addition to the Wii Fit exercises, I was also coaching and managing my two son's baseball teams, and eating right. Its amazing what you give your body, you get from your body...
45 pounds is a lot of weight to lose- and to be honest when I started I didn't realize I had that much to lose. I thought 20 pounds would totally makeover my body... For the first time since my driver's license was issued, my weight is a lie... but for the UNDER reason. I had always had a little extra weight after my first daughter, and I always lied on my DL weight. Don't you? LOL! Well, currently, my weight is listed at 150- and I know I was about 170-175 when it was issued. At that time, I still thought 150 was a good weight... ha! Pull me over now... (no, really, don't).
Wii Fit is a good starting point for anyone wanting to do something about their body. The key is really what they say... staying active and eating right. I don't know if I eat right, so to speak, but I do try to be aware of what I am eating, and when. Its working for me... I still eat sweets, I still drink soda, and eat carbs. I don't deny myself, I just try to balance it...
After the Wii Fit lost its shine, I went and got the Wii Active... Highly reccommend it too! Its a WHOLE new set of activities, and 30 day challenges... It can really get your heart rate up, and help to burn more calories.... Over the summer, I stopped working out as much, but I still maintained my weight.... While I am happy with my current weight- I am not super happy with my current body.... Think Nat Geo cover... think me... Yea, lots of extra.... fluffytypesaggyskinandstuff. What's next in the transformation?
KETTLEBELLS! I tried the P90x- and let me tell you... THAT ISN'T FOR WIMPS (...or me). Wooo... super hard work outs on that program. I haven't given up on completing a cycle- but instead, decided to try KettleBells. Have you heard of these? Wow, the workouts are only 20 minutes, but super challenging and I can definitely FEEL the burn. Today was the second of the workouts. Glad I did it...:) I might be inspired to take a before/after pic...Oh, but that is scary! No one should have to view that... If I did- I will def. equip the picture with a warning.
Have a great day, all two of you! :P
