Last week I decided to try a new workout program called BodyRock.TV. I’ll be honest, when my friend Sili first approached me about doing it, I clicked over to BodyRock.TV, looked around a bit, and said okay. I didn’t look hard enough obviously because they workouts are WAY beyond my level of (non) expertise.
The instructors are in A-MAZ-ING shape, and the workouts are geared for people in much better shape than I. Now there are some positives: the workouts are only 12 minutes (or pure hell) long, and they work because it’s been 7 days and I’m still sore in certain places.
The majority of the moves I can’t even do…I have to modify them. There are tons of push-ups, and I have to do them on my knees. There are tons of burpees, and I’m not in good enough shape to keep up with the amount the instructor does. I don’t have all the equipment required.
And all of that being said, I’m not using the excuse that I can’t keep up to get out of doing the workouts. I’m doing what I can. I’m trying to keep up. And I’m proud of myself for it.
After I did a few of the workouts, I decided I was going to add the Brazil Butt Lift workouts in too. I want to target my butt and mid-section, and I know it works. I also know that I like the workouts. So I’m doing both.
So I guess it’s time to share my Week 1 results. I have been watching what I eat, but I’m not “dieting”. I did BodyRock workouts on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. I took Thursday off and did BodyRock again on Friday. I also did the Brazil Butt Lift workouts (one called High and Tight and the other called Tummy Tuck) on Friday and Saturday. I took Sunday off. I hit my goal of working out 5 days!
Well now that sucks! I actually gained 2 pounds! And the inch I lost in my waist I’m sure is water weight. I will admit that I was hoping to see more, but that’s just being unrealistic. What this tells me is that I can’t “watch” what I’m eating, I need to be very aware of everything I’m putting in my mouth. And that nightly glass of wine? That has to go too.
So I’ll keep trucking along and keep you posted. I didn’t realize how much I missed the feeling of working out until I started doing it again. And there’s still time if you’d like to join our support/motivation group on Facebook – if you are interested, let me know and I can add you.
Now I’m asking you: what’s the best workout or diet tip that you can pass on to me? I need all the help I can get!
