It’s making me a little crazy to not be checking the scale. I’m not really feeling any difference in how my clothes fit yet.
Day 8: It is gorgeous outside, and only the oldest kid was home, so we took a walk around the neighborhood. Some days you just need fresh air!
Day 9: I finished off today with a round of Hip Hop Abs with the kids. I probably burned as many calories from laughing as I did from dancing (or whatever you would call it that I was doing).
Day 10: It felt so good the first time (or something) that we did Billy’s Bootcamp Elite Abs again today. My whole body is shaking, but at least I know it’s working!
Day 11: We kicked up the cardio with Tony Horton today and did the Power90 Cardio and Ab Ripper. Jumping jacks just may be the death of me.
Day 12: Rest day, because some days your muscles just need a break.
Day 13: Man…my legs are burning from the YBB All over shaping video. If I don’t come out of this with some killer legs, I’m going to cry.
Day 14: Today we did a quick upper body workout with some of our favorite Biggest Losers. It was fast and pretty easy, so next time we do it, we will have to amp up the weights some. The ones we used today weren’t heavy enough.
I’m really happy with our progress so far. We aren’t ripped yet, but the exercises are getting easier, I feel more flexible (though I’ve always been very flexible), and I don’t feel completely dead by the time we are done. The challenge is almost half over, and I’m still going strong!
*** Have you been doing the challenge with Jess and I? How’s it going? What do you have planned for week 3?
