|After I had my son I worked out every day for at least an hour|
to get back in shape. Years later, the weight crept back on.
Yep, it's my lifelong struggle to be healthy!
|This is me at my heaviest weight of my life...|
I can pull it off, but it's very uncomfortable on my back
and joints to be overweight. I've lost 20 lbs since this pic.
|There he is! Gilad. He's the man.|
|Gilad's workouts take place on a beautiful Hawaiian beach.|
They consist of a warm-up, commercial, aerobics, commercial,
floor work, commercial, cool down, over.
Perfect for beginners! Already in shape?
Jog in place through the commercial breaks!
|That's me in the middle, Kira on the left and Laura on the right.|
I die when I see that amazing stomach of mine here, hehe!
No stretch marks!
(Well, after having Gabe and gaining a Gazillion pounds, I started working out to Gilad and Bodies in Motion again. I was able to lose 50 pounds and get my figure back. Granted, I was much younger than I am now, and didn't really need to watch my diet. However, when I think back I realize Chris and I hardly ever went out to eat or grab fast food. Just goes to show you, if you can make yourself eat at home, you are taking the first step.)
Over the past 15-16 years, Mom and I have also worked out frequently to Denise Austin, who has the best figure even after all these years and having two kids of her own. She is so perky and positive, I would recommend her videos and shows to anyone who is a beginner, or starting back into fitness after taking a break.
|Denise is so beautiful. Amazing figure, amazing hair,|
and most importantly amazing attitude!
|This DVD is a must have. I know for a fact|
they have it available for rent at the
Riverside Mid-continent Library.
No excuses! Give it a try!
|I rented the Basics Step by Step DVD from|
the library and have been doing it for
almost a week. I would love to buy
I'm posting my workout routines. Hopefully it will motivate you and help you realize you have enough time to be fit. I never do the same thing on Monday, Tuesday, etc. I always change things up so my body never "plateaus" (a nasty word meaning you don't see any more results!)
Some of my workouts include:
*Gilad 30 minute work-out, *Windsor Pilates
*Gilad 30 minute work-out, *Denise Austin's Daily Dozen (one or two of the workouts)
* Denise Austin's Daily Dozen, *Windsor Pilates
*A brisk 30 minute outside walk, *Gilad
*Jump Rope video on Spark People's Youtube channel, *Gilad
You see how I'm always changing things?!
|I would like to lose more, but here's to not gaining any back!|
I've also made myself a Pilates vision board, which I'm going to add 5 exercises to every week. I will do these after I finish the Pilates video.
|I'm pretty proud of my sketches, lol!|
