Love Your Exercise

I lost a pound this week! I know its not much but its better than nothing. I was very good last week, I exercised everyday except Sunday and Friday. Most of the time I took dance classes. Dance is really my favorite form of exercise! I made sure also to give my all when I dance so by the end of it I was sweating like anything and my face was so red, I looked like a tomato. I think I did level 1 of the 30 day shred once. I'm not doing it everyday anymore but it's one of my exercise options. I even tried swimming once! That was tiring but the thing about swimming is I don't know if i'm doing it right and if I'm really burning calories. Last night, I downloaded 2 videos of Winsor Pilates - the 20-minute workout and the fat burning exercise. In the first video, the people make the exercise look so simple but I already know that the routine will be INTENSE. I'm trying that one out later! The second one is like a dance aero routine with some pilates mat work at the end which looks pretty good too.

Back when I just graduated from college, I was a bit of a gym rat. I was always taking classes there and doing weights. There was a time in my life that I really enjoyed exercising and I want to get that back. The key for me to lose weight is really exercise because as it is, I'm already eating better and less than before. I just really need to be more active. I think that I am slowly getting to the point that I enjoy exercising. I guess I just really had to find that form of exercise I enjoy. It took me awhile to find it! I tried doing these weights exercise routines that I collected from Women's Health but I could never stick to it. I found it boring and I didn't know if I was doing it right and I felt that I didn't sweat enough. I realized I need to be following someone while exercising so in comes the 30-day shred.

I'm 5lbs away from the 120s... 5 lbs!! That sounds easy enough right? I can do this!!!
