I didn’t want to run last night, and the idea of just strength training from a book made me bored, so I looked through my stack of Workout DVDs. Not wanting to be yelled at (Ahem, Jillian), I opted for the Biggest Loser Boot Camp DVD with Bob Harper. I really enjoy these DVDs because they have people who haven’t completed their weight loss journeys, and also have people who are maintaining. It’s more realistic and less intimidating.
There are 3 workouts (20, 15, and 10 minutes in length) plus a 5 minute warm up and cool down. I opted for the 20 minute and 15 minute workout with the warm up and cool down to give myself a 45 minute workout. I had never actually used this DVD (weird) so I wasn’t sure what to expect.
You do everything in this workout and you are screaming at the end.
I had to stop a lot during the second workout, my arms were screaming and I was only using 8 pound weights. This DVD made me feel WEAK. Which is good. It has some cardio intervals, but the emphasis is on body weight and strength strength training. I really enjoyed it, and am looking forward to doing it again. I plan on this being my workout twice a week along with running 3 times a week.
- Breakfast – 2 eggs, bacon, coffee, and half and half (6p+)
- Snack – Orange (0p+)

- Snack – Before Class Banana and apple (0p+), during class Coffee (3P+) and Quest Bar (5P+)
- Dinner – Black Bean Avocado Salad (Black beans, avocado, cherry tomatoes, onion, bell pepper, lime juice, cilantro, corn, romaine lettuce) (7p+)
No activity today because I have class this evening. I can’t believe after this week, I’ll have 5 weeks left in the semester. Lordy lou. It went by quick!
I’m also looking forward to not taking classes this summer. I am, however, trying to figure out how I can go about getting some certificates with regards to my Masters. I know Jason is reading this watching his money fly away thinking of it… Especially since I am looking at PhD programs too….. Sorry hunny!
I hope you all have a blessed day! I’m gearing up for races in April, and scared to death about running another half marathon so close to the one I just did. I guess that’s good for marathon training right?
