ShapelyGirl Fitness - Week 1 #shapelygirl



Well, week 1 of my ShapelyGirl Fitness journey is done.

Starting out I made sure to watch all of the Walking Fit and Fabulous DVD before jumping right in. I wanted to know just what I was getting myself into. :) There was an intro from Debra Mazda that made me think I CAN do this.

Oh wow. Let me tell you I was really out of shape! Shew! Man, could I feel the burn! Hot and out of breath I was wondering just what I had gotten myself into. However, the next two times were not as bad. The workouts themselves are designed to be low impact but for someone who hasn't done anything like this for awhile ... I was feeling it pretty good. My muscles were aching but in a way it felt good. I know that's strange sounding but if you do exercise programs you'll know what I mean.

My goal was to workout at least 3 days during the week. Our house is a little small and I knew I didn't want to be do it on weekends. My husband would get a good chuckle out of watching me. *blushes* And even after 12 years of being together and having so truly embarrassing moments, that's not something I want him to see. Anyways, I was able to do it! 3 days completed!

A few other changes I have been trying to make is not eating as many sweets and not drinking as much pop. Last week I had to consciously make the choice to not drink the pop and choose water. After a few days it wasn't a problem at all. As for the snacks...that was easier because I hadn't gone to the grocery store and was running low on everything. I went yesterday and I admit it's going to be an adjustment to not just picking up something sweet to eat. I have some fruit and pretzels and hopefully I can have some self control.

I didn't measure. I think I'm going to base this on how I feel and how my clothes fit. I'll also weigh myself on the scales. I weighed myself yesterday and I was down 4 lbs. I was so excited!

Now let's start on week 2....
