Dani Joy´s Springy Journal 7- starting Nix the Fix!



It´s my new watch! It counts calories, heart rate and programs my weekly exercise needs! It´s amazing. It just lacks one thing...it doesn´t track distance. Soooo... I am still looking for something that does all this and can be used for lap swimming. Mean while, love trying this watch out.

Here is how it monitors my heart rate.

Shocking picture, but seens how we are on private blog thought I would show you the chest band. It works great and is very comfortable.

So my first two workouts with the new watch I have burned 506 calories on each workout.

Monday, I started the 30 day shred again, with Nina! I am so excited to do it again. I am starting right at level 3. I did the shred and then took off for a jog keeping my monitor on the whole time. I did almost a full hour workout!

Always wondered what I was burning while doing the shred. Level 3 for me burns 270 calories. Then my 15 minute jog put me up over 500 calories burned.

Tuesday, I did the shred plus half of the Trouble Zones DVD! One Hour workout with Jillian!! I was so excited, because it was the first time I have done the jumping Rock Stars at speed with Jillian! They are ones I could only jump half way or only do some. But yesterday, I did every single one with Jillian! of course I wasn´t talking afterward. haha =) I just let out a whoop and went down to the ground to do the last minute of abs.

 I have a lot less time on Wednesday.  I didn´t think I would get in a full workout. So after my english class, I took off on a jog. I got 20 minutes in. Then after my other class, I got another 10 minute jog. I hurried home to do the shred. I didn´t have enough time to do all of it all the way through. I cut out the second set of the last two circuits. But still burned 586 calories in an hour workout.

My measurements are the same this morning but my weight was up. I already put that I had lost 2 more pounds on my ticker, and was hoping to announce it today. I won´t change my ticker, just wait till my weight gets back down there again. Which I am hoping will happen tomorrow. Several factors could have played into my gain. Salty food (soy sauce), one desert and a piece of candy, and then after my workout I was starving so I ate a big pita filled with eggs, veggies and cheese. Well, when I write it out like that it´s no wonder the scales went up.

Well, that´s going to change this week! I am increasing my cardio and going to Nix the Fix especially on my night time snacking!

Stay tuned tomorrow to my food choices. Remember you can post your food choices as a Springy Journal every day this week for a total of 7 points. Also you can still post one tip.

Have a good week putting a Nix on the Fix!
