Thanks to the fabulous Jillian Michaels, I’ve learned some new ways to punish my body. There are muscles on parts of the sides of my body that I don’t think should ever feel the way they have felt. I understand there is a difference between cardio and weight training. Some people super dig the weight training. I’ve been trying to give that a try. After 6 weeks, I can safely say that I am not yet convinced that a Jillian Michaels (heavy on the weight training) program is right for me. Zumba seemed to treat my body better. I think my body is more inclined to respond to zumba than jillian.
Luckily for me, not for my budget, I looked at the zumba xbox program with kinect and am definitely excited to try it out! I gave up my old xbox to Vince last christmas. He traded that in for a playstation. He also now has another xbox that he doesn’t use that much and is semi-comfortable giving it up for kinect purposes. I would like to have my own xbox because I’m kind of a control freak like that. I miss my netflix on my downstairs tv when I’m crafting, just another reason to get my own xbox. Too bad I hadn’t discovered this need before black friday when some of them were on sale for super cheap. So, I’m going to be phasing zumba back into my life and jillian a little out. I think I’m still going to do some of the videos so that I can focus on some strength training as well.
My goal, to be back at the weight I was summer 2011 by the wedding. That means losing 9.4 pounds in 6 months, 3 weeks and 2 days.
