It’s Monday and time for my weekly weight loss update. Yes, I’m continuing to lose weight. I weighed in at 146.5 pounds. I had to transfer half of a marble to my “pounds lost” container. So, I wrote 1/2 on a round color coding label and stuck it on a marble. HA! Not very creative, I know. To date, I have lost a total of 6.5 pounds.

The Jackie Warner DVDs I ordered arrived late last week. I watched all three this weekend to see which one I would use first. I was sweating just watching her workouts. Tough! Her workouts are definitely going to kick my booty.  I decided to start with Personal Training with Jackie: Power Circuit Training. There are five workout options: two Total Body Circuits (15-minute & 40-minute), Abs Only Circuit (15-minute), Upper Body Circuit (15-minute), and a Lower Body Circuit (15-minute). This morning I chose the 15-Minute Total Body Circuit, which I did after my 30 minute walk. You move the entire time. Very fast-paced. Love the energy.

Running/Walking Schedule

This week I plan to run/walk on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday. Walk 7 minutes, run 3 minutes. Repeat three times. The other days of the week I will be walking for cardio. I will be doing Power Circuits three days a week on the days I am not running/walking.  

Last week, my run/walk schedule was on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday. Walk 8 minutes. Run 2 minutes. Walk 1 minute (repeat 3-minute session 5 times). Walk 8 minutes. I’m basically alternating days to allow for recovery.

I did take a rest day on Saturday. When my alarm went off, I got up to go walk; however, I crawled right back into bed when I saw lightning. I decided to sleep late. Mistake! Sleeping late = foggy, groggy brain for Kat. I felt off all day long. So, note to self:  if I take a rest day, do not sleep late.


Honestly, since I started my weight loss program keeping up with my workouts and my food journal haven’t been too hard; however, I know this will change on Wednesday. School is starting and life will get a bit more complicated. It will require planning and getting up earlier than 5:30AM if I want to get my cardio workout in before school starts in the morning. Eventually, I will be adding a job to the mix. Thus, more of a time crunch. It is basically going to boil down to priorities and choices.
