Fit Friday...

Hi you guys. I think your positive energy worked. I met my deadline. Thanks! Before I left work yesterday I had put the remaining of my paperwork in inter-office mail. Woohoo...

So, Fit Friday. Workout routine specifics, as requested. I'm going to be giving you three workout routines. One for when I was losing weight, one for post weight loss and one for now (with Lester).


Weight Loss Workout:

Monday, Wednesday, Friday: Strength training, with at least 20 minutes of cardio.

Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday: Cardio.

*I did the strength training routines from the Biggest Loser site. I don't remember the specifics but they involved free weights, lunges, squats, abdominal work...

*My cardio would alternate between running on the treadmill (I can run forever as long as I have music) and exercise videos. I did Billy Blanks Boot Camp. Running, Biggest Loser strength training routines and the boot camp took me through my weight loss.


After Weight Loss Workout:


It's pretty much the same as my weight loss routine as far as the schedule goes but I would do lots of different things for cardio...treadmill, elliptical, different exercise videos, biking, swimming...

With Lester:

Monday, Wednesday, Friday: Strength training...I have to take it a little easy and walking on the treadmill.

Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday: Walking on the treadmill.

It's sooooooooooooooooo boring with Lester. Last night John and I took a chance and went for a bike ride. Take that Lester.

What are your favorite ways to burn some calories? Keep it clean please (you know who I'm talking to =)).

I am so glad you met your deadline! Now you can enjoy the weekend. My favorite work out right now is the 10 Minute Trainer DVD's by Tony Horton. He kicks my butt every morning!

my roommate freshman year of college would would get together with her sister and they would Brazilian wax each other! I couldn't believe it!

These days my routine consists of mainly chasing after Eliza - but I have already signed up for a summer yoga class - that hopefully will NOT involve chasing after toddlers!
