Circuit Training.


Sorry for the 10 day absence.  I've been dealing with a lot of stressful things at home, work, personal.  And they've finally culminated in a really bad cold that has me so exhausted.  However, I just received and put together my spin bike that I bought from Amazon.  It was recommended by another weightloss/fitness blogger.  I really loved my spinning class, but realize that I don't have the time and money to do "drop in" visits once or twice a week.  Investing in a bike and a couple of DVDs or just winging it works with my lifestyle.  I tried to find free videos online similar to Yoga Download, but I haven't succeeded.  If any of you know of something, please let me know.

The plan is to do a circuit training program 5 days a week: 20 minute run on the treadmill, 20 (25 actualy) minutes of 30 day shred, and 20 minutes on cycling.  On the other two days, I think I will walk or do a full 60 minute cycling routine.  Even hubby was happy to try to cycling bike.  He thinks it will be a great addition to the treadmill, however he is no longer exercising consistently.  And I mustn't forget Yoga.  I did the Shiva Rea Yoga flow for 20 minutes on Thursday, and the next day I felt like I swam the English Channel.  I will never again put off doing Yoga for more than 3 days.  Seriously.  However says that Yoga isn't enough for a training routine, never did a Shiva Rea Vinyasa flow.

Eating has been bad.  Really bad.  So bad, I am ashamed of recounting all of has happened.  I won't allow myself to go back to that bad place.  I won't allow myself to not take pictures of me in action.  I won't allow myself to not post about it all.  I was miserable not sharing things.  I felt like holding it all in was expressed in chocolate binges, latte overloads, and dismissal of vegetables.  Lots of fruit, of course.  I wanted the sugar. 

The Crazy Legs Classic isn't in the forseeable future.  I haven't trained properly.  If I do decide to do it, I will do it without training and just to do it.  I will keep you posted. 

Question:  If you've ever taken time off, what steps or plans did you make to get back?


  1. I swear by Yoga too. Am yet to start it regularly though. About plans to get back, I am figuring that out too! :-) The spin bike looks totally cool.

  2. Sorry you haven't been well. :(

    The spin bike looks awesome!!! Have fun with it.

    My husband swears by Yoga. I've only done it a few times ... didn't love it or hate it. Maybe I'll try it one day soon again.

  3. Hi Nona:
    Yes! Try it again. Trust me, if I can get this big body to do Yoga and love it, so can you. I have yet to do a routine on the bike, but hope to get to it soon. I still have residual coughing, but nothing that should stop me.
