Well I'm back in the game. I've replaced my WATP DVD's and I picked up a new one
George Foreman Walk And Box. My dad was a boxer and I loved to workout with him when I was a kid.

Here's my review: (Today is the 1st day of working out with this.)

On a scale from 1-10. I give it a 4.5.
The directions weren't very good and there was pretty much next to nothing in a warmup or a cool down. (she said do your own thing!!!) I did sweat by pushing myself hard. They don't say how many miles you have walked. I thought George would have a bigger part in the DVD but it was basically him making comments (some funny) and showing how to punch here and there. The workout was choregraphed by Petra Kolber and I think that should rename it Petra Kolber Walk and Box. I was hoping for a Tae Bo-xingish and walking workout and George to be the trainer. I'll continue to workout with this only because I paid for it and I hate to waste that hard earned cash. I would recommend that you save your money for a better workout video. Like WATP

OK, this is the week I get back into my exercise routine. No excuses! The past 3 weeks, I've only been exercising 2-3 times/week, and my weight loss has slowed way down (I didn't even weigh myself this week--I didn't want to see it!).

So far:
Sunday: Step aerobics and pilates
Monday: Step aerobics and tonight I plan to do pilates

I found that using 10lbs ankle weights and 5 lbs hand weights added that extra challenge. You might want to go with one or the other the 1st time. I believe I did 10lbs ankle weights and 3lbs hand. Another thing I did is put high energy dance/pop music on and I worked harder. I took more steps because I was going to the music. I got tired of hearing them talk. Which pertty much goes for all my workouts after awhile I like turn off their voice and put on music. I know WATP might not be for everyone one but I found that I could step it up. (add more weights) or bring it way down. (no weights when I'm sick) I hope this helps.

Yesterday I walked almost the 4 mile super challenge (sick child and couldn't get in the full 4)

This morning I did 2 miles of the 4 mile superchallenge. I wanted some extra sleep. Then I did the whole 4 mile superchallenge this afternoon. Still planning on getting in some tae bo this evening.

So I'm totally annoyed with my scale and my stupid plateau, which leads me back to exercise! I did an hour of Tae-Bo, I own the tapes and did the advanced one. It was good, I'm soaked, heh. I'm hoping after a couple days of this I will finally seem some results in my clothes or on my darn scale!!
