I'm 5'8", was always athletic, and enjoyed working out for many years after high school (graduated in 2003). Then, I lost interest but still was able to maintain my weight of 125. I had always gotten compliments on my body and my legs which was awesome. In high school, I had rock hard abs. It was AWESOME. Flash forward to this past year or so and it's all gone down the drain.
I always prided myself on not ever getting past 130, which is still considered on the lower end of normal according to BMI standards. I went to my OB this week and weighed in at 140. The most I've ever been in my entire life. Most of it is in my thighs and tummy and I think the tummy has A LOT to do with my PCOS. Most women who have it, have an "inner tube" around their waists. I fear I'm getting that now.
So, I started my workout routine this morning at 5am. I'm starting off slow because I haven't REALLY worked out consistently in about 1.5 years. SICK. I picked up Jillian Michael's "30 Day Shred" DVD at Target for $9. It came highly recommended from my fellow blogger friend Kelly. It has AMAZING reviews on Amazon to my surprise so I'm excited. I usually don't do dvd/videos but I'm willing to give this one a shot. After doing it this evening, I can barely stand. YOWCH! Here's my weekly plan:
Mondays - 1 mile on treadmill, followed by Boot Camp Class at gym. PM 30 Day Shred, Level 1
Tuesdays - 30 Day Shred, Level 1. PM Zumba.
Wednesdays - 2 miles on treadmill, PM Yoga & 30 Day Shred, Level 1
Thursdays - 2 miles on treadmill. PM 30 Day Shred, Level 1
Fridays - 1 mile on treadmill, followed by Boot Camp Class at gym. PM 30 Day Shred, Level 1
Saturdays - OFF
Sundays - 30 Day Shred, Level 1
Sounds pretty ambitious right? Let's hope I can stick with it for the next 5 weeks before DH & I take off to Vegas. I'm also doing a 7 day detox so I'll let you know how that goes too :)
Wish me luck!
