3rd work out....And we lived to tell about it...

There is something quite nice about doing these Kettle worx videos with my handsome hubby...Tonight we did the "resistance" video, and boy were our hearts pounding!  I hope I'm not as sore tomorrow as I was the first one....I really was squatting "deep"  This time I really stretched afterward.  I feel awesome!  To quote Todd, he feels, "tired, yet energized."

2nd work out!

Well, Today Todd and I did our second Kettle worx video.  Mondays will be the only day we don't work out together.  It was intense!  I really like the "core" video, because that's the part of my body that needs the most work.  My only complaint today is that the video doesn't give me enough time to move up and down off the floor.  But I did it! And I did the whole thing.  YAY me....

Todd said he enjoyed it also.  We are going to ROCK this program.

Well, I feel the BURN!

I realized today, the reason I am fat...I love to eat, and I hate to exercise.  I typically work out at Curves, but it's low impact, and I'm never feeling like I've been hit by a truck.  Well yesterday when Todd and I did our first Kettle Bell work out, I thought, "Sure, I can do this"  But today, yup...I feel like I've been hit by a semi-truck.  I get to this stage, (first work out stage) and then I may be brave enough to do a second time, but after two trucks hit me, I leave the DVD on the counter to start it's career as a dust magnet.  I will not do this, THIS time.  I just have to push through the burn, stretch better, and go through this burn.  I'm entering the weight loss phase, where toning is mandatory, if I don't want to end up like a saggy skinned monster. 

I will push through the burn.  It will get easier right?  Well, I"m not sure, but I will get used to the pain.  (But how do I know really, I've never made it through a video twice.

Mission Statement! 12/25/10

Todd and I have been working hard on our weight loss effort, and we have decided to kick things into full gear by giving ourselves an awesome new Christmas gift: The Kettle Worx work out system.  This along with my Ideal Protein diet, and Todd's faithful Apple athletic club work outs, will kick our New Year resolutions off right! 

Tonight we had our first work out, and it is a killer!  I have a 5 lb kettle bell, and Todd went for the 15 lber....This blog will be updated weekly with pictures, to capture our 6 week body make over challenge! :)

Sarah...Start weight: 199 lbs
