Completed Week One!

Merry Christmas to me! I'm giving myself a wonderful Christmas Gift! Want to know what it is? Ok Ok...I'll tell you. It's a healther body. Yup that's what I want for Christmas. A Firmer smaller waist, firmer smaller hips, and an increased energy level.
Week one and still going. No I didn't measure or weigh this morning. I did work out on the elliptical 7 times, red exerciser 7 times, oxycise 3 times. Last week my elliptical goal was a half mile a day. which works out to right around .8 Kilometer. My elliptical's distance is in KMS.

I decided to just bounce it up to 1 KMS and go from there. So I will be adding 1 Kms per week through 1/2 marathon weekend. This week it's 2 Kms per day. I added another minute to The red exerciser too. Last week was 1 minute. This week it's 2 minutes.

I am still using the Oxycise commuter routine. I am staying with it this week, at 1 full routine per day. I may do a Level 1 routine in there but haven't decided as of yet. I can feel the difference in my back and abs already. happy dance happy dance...

I've been using the Forte Diet Shake for breakfast. I like the way it tastes and it get rid of my early morning hunger and gives me an energy boost.

I'm thankful for the elliptcal, it's snowing outside here today. I'll be working out in the snow taking care of the kennels. Frankly, I appreciate not having to train in it as well. The days are so short now I run out of daylight before I'm done as it is.

I really like the red exerciser. It's working really well for me. However if you are over 250 pounds. Upgrade go for the heavier duty one. You will be glad you did. I have the mid range one that goes up to 300 pounds. They have one that is even heavier duty- it goes to 375 lbs. Mine is a good solid piece of equipment. When I'm not using to work out I use it as a stool.

Oxycise is a phenominal fitness/health/weightloss tool. It is low to no impact and extremely effective. Frankly if you are going to pick just one thing to do, do Oxycise!

Gotta run... have a great weekend!

Life is a journey...enjoy the trip...
