As if I had jinxed myself, when I weighed in, I found that I’d actually gained weight, bouncing up to 158, which was disappointing since I’d managed to find time to exercise 3 times during the week.
This is the week of the Red Army invasion though, so I guess I can attribute it to bloating and water retention.
For exercise, I biked to work three days of the week, did basic Tae Bo twice, and gave Zumba another try. As bad of a dancer that I am, I found that the second time wasn’t nearly as ridiculous.
I also tried running with our dog, Max, but once the kids found out what I was doing, they wanted to go too. So between being dragged along by a dog and having to stop so the kids could catch up, I don’t think I got a very well rounded bout of exercise. On the bright side, I did get a really good arm workout, since keeping Max in check is like working with power bands.
I ordered Jillian Michaels’ 30 Day Shred because it was dirt cheap and had an insanely good rating and over 2,700 reviews. We’ll see how that goes!
