Default Move it, to Lose it!

Well finally got my act together and realized I'm supposed to have a journal AND a gym log.

So here are my goals: Besides loosing weight and body fat I want to be able to do 10 straight leg pushups and 3 pullups (hands facing both ways). Although it would be nice to be able to do 1-handed pushups like Demi Moore in GI Jane.

Anyold hoo. I try to work out at least 40 minutes every day. And right now I'm doing a rotation of DVD's:

Kick Butt 1
Winsor Advanced Pilates
Kick Butt 2
Donna Richardson 3 Day Rotation

I actually haven't quite figured out how I'm going to use the three day rotation video, as I used to do 20 minutes of it everyday. Now my goal is to do 40 minutes a day, but then I will have to go through 2 workouts including warmup and cooldown. And that doesn't sound to be very effective. I think I'll have to get a circuit training workout and a dance workout that are 40 minutes each.

If anyone has any advice please let me know.

[Edit: It turns out I spent so much time screwing around on this message board I lost my workout time this morning and only got to do one of the 20 minute workouts. So I guess I'm not dropping that DVD anytime soon. It comes in handy.]

Did the hour long advanced pilates tape. Oh gosh that is hard. And my derriere is sore from doing lunges and squats yesterday with 10 lb. weights. Here's to hoping I don't get the dreaded soccer legs.

Ugh... Kick Butt 2. Had to rest through the butt section. Argh! Harder than Kick Butt 1.

After 2 weeks of not working out (what happened to me?), I started back on the excercise program this morning. Unfortunately I pulled/strained a muscle in my back and decided to call it quits after 15 minutes. Hopefully tomorrow I'll be able to hang in there for longer. I just have to try to remember to go slowly now.

Back pain has been gone since Monday. Hurrah!!! And so I started in (slowly) on my routine. And this morning I only did 20 minutes instead of 40. It's just that now I know the importance of being careful.

Yay! I was able to do the hourlong kickboxing workout without hurting myself. This time I was very careful not to injure anything. No snapping punches like before. And I kept my sweatshirt on the whole time, trying to keep my muscles loose and warm. I'm not as spry as I was when I was younger, but maybe I can learn and be smarter.

Feeling very good.

See how long it's been since I've been officially commited to a workout routine? SINCE OCTOBER!!! It's sad. But hey, I've started up again.

Worked out this morning to the advanced weight video. It was really hard for only being 20 minutes. But there is a lot of stomach control work and difficult moves, so I know this will get me into doing straight-leg pushups sooner. I know I should be doing more than 20 minutes, so maybe I'll double up excercises. One in the morning and one in the evening? Gotta take it slow though, cause I did feel sore in my ankle from doubling up my workout last weekend.

Current plan: Try the 20 minute advanced workouts. One each morning in the typical rotation of weight, kickboxing, aerobic dance.

OK Listen up peeps. New agenda:

Day 1: Advanced weight training and dance (40 minutes)

Day 2: Kick Butt 1 (45 minutes)

Day 3: Advanced Pilates (50 minutes)

Day 4: Kick Butt 2 (45 minutes)

Repeat before butt gets saggy again.
