Sweaty Betty In the House

I got my Sweaty Betty band that I won from a giveaway on Fitville. So here it is for all to see and oooooooooooooooooooo and awwwwwwwwwwwwwwww in it awesomeness.

I tested it and I LOVED IT. I did feel a few sweat bead roll down my face but nothing like it used to. When I removed the band it was soaked after a 45 minute workout. I also have declared that today is officially going to be my first day of my 10 week challenge since last week got screwed up by my ever stubborn bad tooth. Ok here is the break down............

  • July 16 - Sept 28 
  • Just say no to cardio
  • Only work on strength training 
Stats as of today....

  • Weight in: 135lbs
  • Waist in inches: 34 inches
  • Right Thigh: 23 1/2 inches
  • Left Thigh: 23 1/2 inches
My workouts will vary so I don't get bored but I will focus on full body workouts as opposed to breaking each muscle up on given days. I will add in 2 days of yoga along with 3 days of complete body weight training with light weights. I want to focus more on form and control then intense bursts of fast pace movement. I feel more controlled movements utilize our muscle more, but that is just my opinion. I hope and pray this works because I have realized that cardio is no longer working for me. Been doing it for 6 months with minimal results. I have to say I am enjoying just turning on the radio and going freely with it instead of having to keep up with an instructor although I do miss my workout DVD's but then again I have my yoga DVD's to cure my withdraws.

Did I mention it is HOT HOT HOT today. I thought I was going to melt away at work. I can not wait until Fall, my favorite time of the year. I also had to refrain from my lime drink after my workouts due to the acidity and I have a raw gum with stitches so I am substituting with green tea, and I can barley eat anything which really stinks. Guess I have to suck it up and deal with it. I was a bad girl yesterday and bought mint ice cream hehehehe. I did not get B-Day cake so ice cream was just as good to me. YES I ate some and it was YUMMY, did I mention YUMMY oh I am so so bad. Shhhh told tell nobody hehehehe.

How is everyone dealing with the heat? Ice cream ^ ^

  1. Sometimes there is nothing better than a really tough workout that makes you sweat! I have learned some great advices on how to get prepared to the hardest trainings from this blog: Beside other things, they provide awesome info about DOMS relief. Now I can easily go through 2 or even 3 consecutive training classes in the gym. Because of increased endurance I never more feel exhausted after my workouts. And the best part: my pounds go off easily and my shape is better than ever before!
