NIKE TRAINING CLUB REVIEW UPATE: I will not turn this into a pity party post, however, the NIKE Training Club app is way more than I expected. Don’t get me wrong it’s an awesome workout. But I think I’m going to need to ask the fairy exercise god mother to send me a free personal trainer to get me up off the couch (or from in front of my laptop) and get on the floor and “Just Do It”. This week I lost ZERO pounds BUT I gained NONE. So I guess I will give myself half a fist pump for maintaining my diet. Resisting a good piece of fried chicken is hard!
I haven’t participated in our Friend Friday questions in what seems like forever. To be honest, I just wasn’t inspired to write anything. But when I saw other posts from bloggers about their dreams I instantly said to myself .. self, you have to do this one.
Dreams are what great folks live by. They get our imagination going and can make your current boring life seem like a distant far away tale. This week we ask ourselves what do we really want to do with our lives and what are we doing about it.
Drum roll please…I am down 4 POUNDS thanks to a steady healthy diet and exercise. Thank you for your applause because boy it’s not an easy task. Between my full time job, updating this blog, contributing to others, designing flyers and such, and fitting in an occasional nap I can barely fit time in to exercise. But luckily I’ve got my NTC training app.
I’ve found that the best workouts for me are the GET FOCUSED exercises. Not only can I focus on my bad areas and keep my curves it takes just 15 minutes for each area. Fits well with my busy schedule. I was so excited yesterday when I went into the fitting room to try a dress on and noticed that I didn’t have to hold my love muffin in quite as much. I know it’s just 4 lbs but it’s a start. Check me out…4lbs less!!!
Initially I wasn’t enthused to see “The Help”. A movie set in the 60’s about a group of Mississippi maids with over-exaggerated slave like dialect, sporting those hideous blue-ish gray uniforms, chatting only about their days spent cooking, cleaning, and caring for little brats that they didn’t birth. Well that was my synopsis of the flick. But in reality, the movie told a cute southern story of unlikely sisterly alliances and the struggle between courage and cowardice. It even offered a few adorable frocks for me to drool over. Continue reading →
Today I did what I should have did last week. WRITE DOWN MY GET HEALTHY GOALS.
We’re in week #2 of the NIKE Women’s Training Challengeand I will openly admit that I’m not using this app to it’s fullest. Despite the fact that every single thing is laid out for me. I am able to record exactly what workouts I did and for how long. I even get rewarded with bonus workouts from the celebrity trainers Jeanette Jenkins & Ary Nunez, healthy recipes, and bragging rights that post directly to your Facebook page. But it’s so easy say you’ll start on Wednesday and look up and another Wednesday is at our feet. So I am smacking my hand now and lugging myself to the gym tonight (follow me on Twitter and keep me in check, please!)
After my getting my eating habits in check I began working out on the regular. I realized that just doing my Zumba workouts and a little Cardio 3x’s a week isn’t enough. Plus, my gym is filled with extra buff health nuts which kinda leaves fat ole me a little intimidated. But almost like clockwork, I found another healthy program to participate in.
