Change it UP Crunch IN - 20

Crunching an hour a day these last couple of days to see if I can get my body off this plateau that it has been on since before Thanksgiving, and trying to keep up with Tami and Ketty, called for some change up in my routine.

A half hour swim and walking, yesterday and this fun new video today that I found on exercise tv.com. At first I thought it a little goofy but, it was a fun way to get my cardio in.

I needed a break from Jillian. I have been doing her dvds since August. This video has some similar exercises so I just did the harder Jillian version of the exercise. Yes, I would have to say that Jillian´s Metabolism boost dvd is harder, but for some good cardio this Bootcamp calorie burn was so fun!

Check it out!

I ended up doing the last squat thrust circuit twice because I had to rewind. I had to help Michael (my youngest) with his Science notebook. I didn´t stop moving though. I kept my marching while I helped him then came back to the high intensity again.

Tonight, I did 35 min. with this video. Then 5 more stretching and then 5 minutes of burn out ab work. I combined my favorites of Jillians ab exercises and did them till I couldn´t do anymore. Then I did 2 sets of 10 push ups! But that wasn´t an hour of working out yet. I had to take the dog out and hoofed it around our neighborhood for 15 minutes!

You all are inspiring me to increase my level of workouts! I want to reach my new goals by Christmas!
How are you all doing on your goals? Feeling more fit? Isn´t that what it´s all about ladies?

Well, I haven´t shown this picture to anyone... jeje....only my hubby has seen me in these pants. They are a size 42. Which here in Spain is pretty small. I would say an 8-10.  (Not sure) I haven´t worn pants like this since before College. Maybe not ever, seens how I have always been self-conscious about my backside.  (took this picture back for wk4)

Maybe next weeks measurements will show more change in the hips and thighs. That´s another goal! (and no more loss on top)

Three cheers for Ketty and Tami for hitting 200 points and for Sarah F. on her fabulous Form! You all are so motivating!

Crunchin´it to Christmas,
