I Have A Weird Question



Recommended Posts

So we're riding the hurricane out at the in-laws' house and it looks like I'm not going to be able to go to the gym tomorrow or Tuesday. I brought some workout DVDs with me, but I forgot the in-laws don't have a DVD player.

Anyway, sometimes when I'm channel surfing early in the morning I see programming for things like zumba and other workouts. Are these actually workouts on TV or just infomercials for exercise tapes?

Also, any good ideas on how to work out at home? I have no fitness equipment with me at all.

Do a circuit plan. You can do this plan with no equipment.

I've done this in the past....

20 body weight squats

10 push-ups

20 crunches

20 mountain climbers

10 burpees

Run 200 yards

Do this whole circuit without rest. After the run, rest 1 minute then repeat. Do it as many times as you can, or just keep going for 30 minutes. It's tougher than it sounds if you don't rest between exercises. You can tweak this any way you want. Add or eliminate any exercises you like.

I'm not going to lie to you, attempting this more than once might kill me. But I will give it a try. I'm way out of shape, so I'm trying to build up my endurance and strength right now.

Good news though, my fiance said he can put my DVDs on the Apple TV so I can still use them. I brought Slim in 6 and a bellydance DVD. So I'll have something to do during the day, lol.

So this is what's known as circuit training.

Now here's my weird question... What are the mountain climbers and the burpee's

Beach body products work if you use them. I have Hip Hop Abs and I get a really good workout. The Beach Body shakes, Shakelogy are the best in the world. Taste great, full of Protein but a little costly.

They are no fun, I can tell you that. The best thing to do would be google them. There are 1000's of online videos of each.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
