What's Gotten Into Me

So I just finished the carb-deplete cycle of my diet again. I am excited to be allowed carb and sugar again! yay! I have to say I really love this diet plan. The weight keeps coming off (down 39 lbs now!), and with the exception of that first week, I don't feel really denied.

But what is getting to me know is my current attitude towards exercise. Over the weekend DH bought me "My Fitness Coach" for the Wii. And it is great! It doesn't require the Wii Fit (which I still hope to get for my birthday - hint hint), but is a personalized exercise program. You have to fill in all your pertinent information (including taking measurements!!) and complete a fitness test (how many situps/pushups in x time, resting pulse, pulse after 2 min of cardio, etc). Then it personalizes an exercise program based upon your goals. It is really cool.

I also love the Thirty Day Shred by Jillian Michaels. Quite a workout and only 20 minutes.

But the scary thing is that since Sunday - I have not only worked out every day - but 3 days I have worked out 2x (morning and evening). I have NEVER done that in my life. Seriously. I don't know what has gotten into me, but I like it!

Oooo, thanks for the tip about the fitness coach. I have the Wii Fit, but still would like to shake things up a bit with the coach program. You know, because I have to have ALL new gadgety things, not that I get them all.

Thanks for visiting my blog earlier in the week!
