So, it’s now the end of the Total Gym Total Mom Challenge, and I’m sad to say that I failed! I got a visitor from the past this summer, FAT! Yup, she came back and stuck to me like she was my shadow, but I vow to loose the extra baggage that showed up this summer.
I’m anxious to see who the winner is, although I know without a doubt it’s NOT me! I slacked, I took off for vacation, I didn’t exercise or eat right over the entire summer. I wasn’t myself, I didn’t uphold my end of the bargin.
Although every once in a while, I’d wander down to the basement and see that gym staring at me, yelling at me to get on it, and work out, and I did a few times, I failed. I didn’t do the exercises each day like I wanted.
So, I have no measurement or weight changes to share with you, unless you’d like the see the numbers that went UP rather than down. That’s not due to the gym though, that’s totally due to myself.
Since summer has ended, and school is back in sesssion, we’re back on our regular routine, I’m now back on my regular workout routine. At least 3 days at the gym, 3 days on the Total Gym in my basement, so I’m hoping to keep up with things here on my blog with both my diet and workout. Working out was easy to ease back into, the eating portion however, not so easy.
I really wish there was a diet plan that came with the Total Gym, it might help out a bit, and I also wished that the Pilates DVD that came with it worked as well I was never able to try that out because I’d insert it into my DVD player and just get an error (the other DVD’s that came with it worked fine) so I’m a bit sad about that.
Right now, I’ve stopped with the video’s though and gone to doing the workouts on the cards that come with the gym. Yesterday was my workout day out of the house, today will be my workout day in the house on the Total Gym XLS.
Although the Total Gym Total Mom challenge is over, I’m starting my own challenge this week. I’ll be posting a photo and measurements next week and we’ll go from there, let’s see how far I can get with this doing it RIGHT this time! I’m not going to let that beautiful, working Total Gym XLS end up being a giant clothes hanger in my home!
