My Weight Loss

Friday Fitness

Today was a good day. I went to run my errands earlier in the day before traffic got to crazy. I went to Barnes & Noble and bought the book Eating For Life. There are some great recipes in it that even my family will eat and not miss the things that aren't good for them.
I did a 45 minute Fat Burning Walk workout with a DVD by Leslie Sansone. I also did what I could of the last segment that was for the lower body and abs. I have discovered I am unable to do squats at this time, this will have to be something I work into as the weight comes off.
I have a question for anyone that carries extra weight especially in the belly. How in the world do you work on the core? Every DVD I have tried the ladies have no to very little belly fat if any at all. I refuse to work out with Richard Simmons. (Sorry for those who like him. )
I am planning on incorporating Yoga into my exercise program next week. I miss doing it and love the flexibility that comes from continuous practice. I use to take classes two years ago and just loved it. Rodney Yee is my favorite instructor to follow on DVD.
I have been trying to up my water intake since I am now NOT drinking hot chocolate (we are talking, as I figured it out today. 1 gallon of homemade cocoa. This consisted of 1 cup cocoa powder, 3 cups of sugar, 1 can evaporated milk and the rest water). Holy Shmoly! That is a lot of sugar. I was also drinking many cans or Thurstbusters of Diet Coke a day. So why is the water harder to get down. I am not sure I think it is all in my mind set but I am working on the change and I have done good drinking the water today.
I am getting together with my Mentor Janel tomorrow to do a meal plan for this next week. Everyone have a great night. Hugs, Bobbi Jo

  1. Even if you have extra fat around your middle, you still have a core in there! And its important to work so you don't hurt your back. Don't worry about doing all the fancy stuff, just do crunches :D And if you keep your midsection "engaged" throughout all the ohter exercises, it will be getting worked sufficiently.


I am so thankful you stopped by. Please leave a comment or question and I will get back with you.
