Beach Bound...

So we're heading to the beach for vacation. We weren't able to go last year due to the Hurricane's hitting the coast. I'm psyched to be going. I love the beach, more so laying out than getting in water that I can't see what's swimming underneath me. I'm scared to death of getting stung by a jellyfish! So far that hasn't happened...(knock on wood). The laying out in the sun is catching up with me though as I just turned 30 last month and I am finding wrinkles. I'm working on reversing that also, but everyone looks way better with a tan!! I have a goal to lose 20-25 lbs before we go...I started counting calories and working out Monday. So far, so good. I'm trying to keep my calories around 1200 a day. I bought a Biggest Loser CardioMax DVD that is awesome! I highly recommend that to anyone! Bob, Jillian, and Kim are all on there. There's a 5 min warm-up and then Bob has a 10 min session and then there's a 5 min cool down. You do this for the first week or two (depending on your level) and then you add Jillian's part in addition to Bob's for the next couple of weeks and then the last 2 weeks you had Kim's workout. I'm sweating in the warm-up lol Bob loves to do squats and lunges. After I did the DVD yesterday, I walked with "B" in the stroller for 45 min and then last night played Wii fit for an hour. Today, my butt and hamstrings are so sore that I can't squat or bend over lol So needless to say, I didn't do the DVD today. I'm getting ready to workout with Bob and hoping that the soreness will be gone very soon!! Wish me luck...I'm very determined to drop the pounds!!!

  1. Good luck...I'm working on losing about 50 pounds this year. I joined Weight Watchers at the end of January and so far have lost 16 pounds. It can be done, but it's oh, so hard sometimes.
