Workout Results for 04/17/07 - Day 1, Week 4, SI6Day 1, Week 4, Slim in Six Workout:
Program Followed: Ramp It Up
Program Duration: 47 Minutes
Difficulty: Felt great today!
OK, even though I had to stop my workout for a couple of phone calls this morning (I'm trying to get two transactions to close simultaneously this week) I made it all the way through the Ramp It Up workout this morning. I even did most all the reps of everything. It felt really good. I can see the benefit of working out 6 days a week in terms of weight loss, but I think (and have been told) that giving your body a day to rest between gives your muscles a chance to repair themselves too. I'm going to try for 4 days of Ramp It Up this week.
A bonus . . . after our ride on Saturday and after taking a shower, I stepped on the scale again . . . mind you this was after breakfast, and drinking a bunch of water on the ride, my weight showed 329.5 . . . So I was stoked to see that TWO! Waking up this morning, I was at 332.0 after not working out Sunday or Monday. But after working out and having breakfast, I was at 331.5. I'd be willing to bet that by tomorrow morning, I can or will be at 329-ish . . . The overall trend is down people, that's all I care about right now. Just looking at this thing in 10 pound chunks. Maintaining the 320's this week will be the goal with the next up . . . 319 . . . I'd be totally stoked if I hit that by May 3rd, the day we leave for Vegas and the wedding, but I'm not holding my breath. If I can be in the low 320's by the 3rd, I'll be nearly as happy. I told Teri I was taking the Slim in Six DVD and resistance bands with us to Vegas . . . she wasn't really thrilled about it. :-) I just don't want to lose momentum. So if I can workout 2 days while I'm down there, I'll feel really good about it.
