March 30th the Sister of Shrinking Jeans challenged me to work out on my Wii Fit and do the Hula. The challenge was for 1 week and we were supposed to log our "spins" to see who could do the most in 10 minutes! My thoughts when I heard the challenge, "You've got to be kidding me 10 minutes on that thing is just NUTS!" That night I started off with the 70 second session and I tried over and over again. I finally managed to get up to 21 spins! I felt like I was gonna die after doing that thing, but I kept at it....
And I have kept at it over the past 10 weeks and have continually improved. After the first week I finally managed to finish the whole 70 seconds. After that I progressed to the 3 minutes and kept at it. I have been doing the 6 minute session now for a while and have continually set record after record. I have accomplished more than I ever thought I could with it....but tonight....I decided I wanted to "kick it up a notch" in the words of Jillian Michaels on her 30 Day Shred DVD (oh and btw, I have continued working out with Jillian every night). Tonight after my 70 second warmup on the Hula, I decided, "what the heck, let's see how I can do on the 10 minute session!!" The worst that could happen is that I don't finish it, right?!
Guess what?? come on guess!! I did it -- all 10 minutes!! I could hardly believe it myself!! I even had the breath and energy left to call dh in to witness my score!!
What was my score, you ask?? Thanks for asking! My score for 10 minutes was 3204!! Thankyouverymuch!!
Man it felt good to accomplish something so good for myself. That bumped my workout time to nearly 50 minutes tonight....yeah for me!!
That Kid, being a teenage boy discovered something this past week that he told me about last night. If you have a I-Pod touch, or an I-phone you can download this cool application called "Lose-It". It helps track your calories, and exercises. It also helps you set goals for losing weight. I have been been thinking about getting a new cell phone and thought maybe this would be a good excuse to buy a I-Phone, but then dh said "hey, you can use my IPod touch, since I don't use it anymore...." He got an I-phone for Christmas and has barely touched his "touch" since then. So he erased it and then I loaded it and immediately put the "Lose-It" application on there. It's going to be fun to use and will be a big help in my weight-loss journey. I'm excited about this new application. It told me that it would take till January 6 to lose the weight I am trying to lose....Let's see if I can beat the I-Pod's goal!
