6 weeks to 6 pack First Glance

 

Happy Hump day! I hope everyone is having a GREAT day today! It’s already ssooo hot here. High is 80. I just ran a quick 2 miles. I didn’t realize how hot it was and I had on yoga pants and a shirt with sleeves and I was DYING so I only made it 2 of my 3 miles. But then I came home and did my 6 week to 6 pack DVD.

This is my second week of the program and it’s no joke! The way it works is there are two levels (level one and level two obviously…) and you are supposed to do level one for three weeks, five times a week. She goes through one circuit two times during the workout. This is how it has broken down for me so far…

The first week I did level one 3 or 4 times I can’t remember, but I only went through the circuit once, to get used to it (incredibly sore abs after the first day forced my fate upon me). Then this week I have done it twice, going through the whole circuit. Doing this video five times a week is unrealistic for me for two reasons

1.) I like to run and do other workouts and not just the video

2.) I get bored easy.

That’s my honest answer! I realize I may not get the results promised, but a little toning before my cruise around the midsection is all I am after.

I have gotten a couple of questions regarding what I wear to do a workout like this. My running skirt? Haha! No, I haven’t done that…yet..I typically wear yoga type capri/knee pants and a tight fitting shirt. No, not because I want Jillian to think I am an awesome serious workout guru, but because I HATE when I am doing planks, etc. and my t-shirt flies up over my head and smothers me. Ok…so maybe I am being a little dramatic, but it’s annoying! So I typically wear something like this. Pleas ignore the messy bathroom, we just moved in, remember? I’m working on it!!!

My HOPE for this video is that there is enough difference in my mid section to justify posting before and after photos. Yes, I took the photos, no I am not showing you yet. Patience my friends. I need to see results!

Something else fun to tell you about, I got to have a blogger meet up yesterday! The lovely Cate from My Running Ambition was passing through my way on her way back to my old stomping grounds of NOLA where so recently moved. I was so excited she contacted me and quickly agreed to a Starbucks meet up!

It was so great to meet her, and we obviously have a lot in common! We talked about New Orleans, and I gave her a few pointers on the city and on having a significant other in law school! It felt like we were old friends and I hope I get to see her again soon! She was also nice enough to let me take her picture for the blog, of course! Say hi Cate! Isn’t she precious?

Ok I am going to do a little strength training, I have been neglecting it since we moved in. I wish they would hurry up and finish building the YMCA! I have a feeling it’s going to be a HOT summer!

QOTD: Do you like workout DVD’s? Which ones?
