I worked out 13 days in January, burning at least 5,555 calories (I forgot to wear my Heart Rate Monitor a few times). This is a good start, but seriously, I have to kick my butt into high gear. My main issue is that when I get home from work on these cold winter days, all I want to do is put on warm pajamas and cuddle up under a blanket. The whole idea of coming home and putting on shorts and a t-shirt to do a workout DVD is just cruel. Granted, I’m sweating within five minutes, but still, it’s tough to do. I plan to workout at least 20 days during February.
I tried doing Yoga for Weight Loss a few times this month. I just can’t get into it. I don’t feel like I get a good workout at all. I know there are some really buff yoga exercisers out there, so maybe I’m just doing something wrong. But I figured my workout time was better spent on high-calorie burning exercises. This month, I’ll start Jillian Michaels’ Yoga Meltdown to see if it’s any better of a workout.
As of today (I weigh myself on Wednesday mornings, I’m down 6.2 pounds since January 5. Not bad, but not a great pace.
So, here’s a recap of this month’s workouts:
