I workout!

Ilove being able to say that! 5 outta 7 days a week is what we are doing right now! I no longer feel like a lazy bum. We have been getting up at 5:30 am and getting our exersice in before the kids get up and Ive got babysitting kids showing up. If you know me personaly you know what a big deal it is for me to get up that early. I am NOT a morning person! But, it is great to get up and get it outta the way because by the end of the day which would be my next timeframe i can workout I am wiped out! Its worth it to see and feel these changes in my body.
Pictured is what we have been doing everyday. I start with the cardio and then move on to the weights. You should see how much I sweat on the elliptical! Its crazy! I actually dispise the elliptical and hate sweating and getting so out of breath but its what I have to do to make this happen. I have tried loaing weight again since I gained without working out and it just didnt work. I dont know if its cuz Im older or what but Ive got to exersize. Plus I want my body to be toned and tight. Not jiggely. :) This is only the 2nd week of this workout plan. Before that I was just doing random things. And let me tell you, when we first got the elliptical I could barley do 5 minutes. Now I can go as long as I need to and at a much faster pace. But it definatly is hard! And seems like time goes so slow when Im on there!
Amyways that is what we are doing and I feel great about it!


  1. It looks like your doing the right stuff! I'm sorry that you don't enjoy the elliptical. Do you listen to music or watch tv? I like to listen to music and plan my day in my head. I use that time to think about all of the things that I don't have time to think about throughout the day and just focus on me. If you don't love it, it will be harder to stick to it. I'm really glad that you and Ben are doing this together! I'm sure that makes it easier and more fun. It sounds like you whole family is getting healthier! I think its great!

    1. Yes I do listen to music and usually have the tv on also. I recently started putting a towel over the timer on the elliptical so Im not looking ay it every 15 seconds and that has helped a little.

      Also I just read through my post again and found so many spelling errors. I posted from my phone so when I do that I guess everyone will just have to bear with me and ignore the mistakes. Lol

  2. I tried to comment the other day and it would'nt let me. You guys are doing great. Keep it up. I don't love the cardio machines either maybe it's hereditary.
