4 Mile DVD

Saturday, March 27, 2010

I really enjoy doing the Leslie Sansone walk videos, I have the set, and I am doing the 4 mile now. She says because of the different steps in the video it will help your body to not be stuck in plateau mode and you will lose weight cont. I am testing her knowledge. I make sure to do her about twice a week, along with the treadmill, walking outside and the 60 min swimming laps.

But I will have to do something else when I get home, so I started a week I now do 2 different aerobic machines at the gym to see how it will work. I am surprised how I do the bike it is going well. So when I get home I am getting my bike on the road, I will have to get a helmet and knee pads, but it will be something new to do. I also do the elliptic but I am just learning this, I et a little afraid of it, My legs seem to turn to mush and get rubbery when I try it,m so I get up to 15 min. and have to get off. It works more calories and I have learned these small work outs are just as affective. Until I can work up to perhaps 30 min to 45 doing it. I have no idea if the small town I live in has this machine. So I will have to wait and see what can do.

Just letting you know my thinking and plan. I do not want any surprises in this change so I am trying to allow for any differences that will be happening. My biggest loss will be the swimming. wish I could do it in the river but just not an option.

See I have tried to lose weight before and when changes occur in my life the exercise seems to be the one element I stop first. I do not want this to even enter my mind this time. I can make excuses for myself, this I know. I am getting closer to my goal so I am worrying about something to sabotage my efforts.

Saying this sounds stupid but I know from past experience that things do happen and so if I say it out loud now I will perhaps nip the problem in the bud. Does this sound familiar to anyone??

Thanks for letting me share my fears and thoughts how strange they may be.

    In my life, exercise is also the first to go. I have been incorporating a program that I do each day at home. Stretches and strength that don't need any equipment and don't take a lot of time. And something that I can do for the rest of my life. So far I've got about one exercise ingrained as habit. But I'll get them all if I just keep at it. Thanks for the blog. Have a great Sunday.

    I love Leslie, and yes change does make it harder to stick to a new habit.

    To fix this and prevent relapse I challenge you to come up with Plan A, Plan B, and Plan C. When things don't go how you think they will at home, so you miss exercise, how will you fix that? That answer is Plan A.

    But usually when you get to that place in life, Plan A won't work either, for unforeseen reasons that are not preventable. So that's why you need B. And C.

    I am glad to hear you like the walk dvd's. I just ordered the 3 mile walk your belly flat and the three mile weight loss walk. I have never tried them so I am glad to hear from someone who has. I am new at exerciseing. I have dieted for years like a yoyo. I think the exercise makes the biggest difference.
