Starting Over and Power Sculpt DVD

May 27th, 2008 | No Comments | Posted in Exercise

Its the day after Memorial Day weekend and I’ve eaten way too much yummy food for the holiday. So now I’m completely ready to start over. I forgot to weigh in on Friday, so today I weighed in at 241 lbs. I’m back to where I started plus one pound from the Memorial Day pig out!

Power Sculpt DVDI started using the Biggest Loser Power Sculpt DVD in addition to the Cardio Max workout. I have to say I like the Cardio Max better than Power Sculpt, butI suppose it has its place too. The Power Sculpt DVD, like the Cardio Max workout, has a Maximum Results Workout schedule where there are three levels that you do for two weeks each level.

Now maybe its because I’m partial to Bob Harper, but I didn’t like the Level one Power Sculpt workout. Jillian is the trainer for it, and while I like her more and more with each season, she’s just not as much fun as Bob’s workouts. Bob really makes you laugh while you’re sweating, whereas Jillian seems to be more serious with more attention to each muscle you are working. …Continue Reading Starting Over and Power Sculpt DVD

Here they are when they were evicted from campus: …Continue Reading Ali & Bette-Sue Before and After Photos

Slow Boat to Skinny Town! – Week 4 Results

May 19th, 2008 | No Comments | Posted in Weight Loss In Progress

A whole week of weight loss effort and I lost one lb! Not exactly Biggest Loser results. I’ve decided to weigh-in on Friday instead of Mondays from now on because our big family dinner is on Sunday, which makes it difficult to come in with any decent weight loss on Monday.

I’ve been doing my Biggest Loser Cardio Max workout at level one the last week. I got about 4 workouts in (30 minutes each), which isn’t great, but better than nothing. When I started out last week I couldn’t keep my heart rate in the zone (was way over!), but now after only a week, I can complete the Cardio Max workout while still staying under 160 beats per minute (which about my limit base don my age and weight). …Continue Reading Slow Boat to Skinny Town! – Week 4 Results
