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

02-28-2005, 04:58 PM
In order to get off the plateau iím stuck on, a few changes for this week :

Tonight: 45 min. walk fast pace

Tuesday: 40 min laps at the pool + 3 x 15 sit-ups + 2 x 10 pushups

Wednesday: 45 min walk fast pace

Thursday: 40 minutes laps at the pool + 3 x 15 situps + 2 x 10 pushups

Firday: 45 min walk fast pace + 3 x15 situps + 2 x 10 pushups

Saturday or sunday: 3 hours downhill skiing

OK... Last night I bought the WATP dvds...they are OK. I wasnt challenged as much as I thought I should be, though.
Last night: 1 mile +2 mile (about 45 mins)
This morning 2 mile + 3 mile (about 65 mins)

Im also on my way to the gym, so I'll do the elliptical there...Ill post later.

02-28-2005, 06:03 PM
I just couldn't motivate myself this morning. I did almost 2 miles of the 4 mile super challenge this morning. Planning on tae bo before fear factor.

02-28-2005, 11:04 PM
Dana, 2 miles is better than 0 miles!

Just adding that I DID do pilates tonight. Now if I could get my eating back on track...

02-28-2005, 11:17 PM
Wanted to get a taste of what's for tomowrrow. Just tried sit-ups and push-ups. OMG that's hard!!!:faint:

If this does not shake up my metabolism, i don't know what will!!!

[COLOR=DeepSkyBlue]OK... Last night I bought the WATP dvds...they are OK. I wasnt challenged as much as I thought I should be, though.

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.

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!!


03-03-2005, 08:06 AM
I was feeling froggy so I did the 2 mile WATP...twice

03-03-2005, 09:49 AM
Tuesday: off
Wednesday: Step aerobics, pilates and yoga
Thursday: Did 1/3 of step aerobics tape, when interrupted by son and mother-in-law. I'm hoping to do the rest tonight.

Yesterday was my and my husbands 3rd anniversery, so we went out...I did squeeze in the WATP 2 mile dvd though.
Tonight I go to the gym.

03-03-2005, 10:36 AM
Monday: one hour gym - cardio and toning + 10 000 steps
Tuesday: one hour gym cardio and toning + 8 000 steps
Wednesday: one hour swimming - half an hour in gym + 10 000 steps
Thursday: one hour swimming + 10 000 steps + half hour in gym at lunch time
I am really enjoying my exercise, I was doing nearly nothing before January, it's been the biggest change I have made.

03-03-2005, 11:48 AM
3 mile WATP tape this morning

03-03-2005, 01:20 PM
Mon: ab/back/leg workout (9 exercises), 3 miles at ~3.1 mph
Tues: arm/chest workout (8 exercises), 4 miles
Wed: ab/back/leg workout (9 exercises), 3.6 miles

I've gotten in the arm/chest workout this morning and another 1.6 miles (plan to do 2 miles for lunch). Can't seem to get past ~3.1-2 mph rate on walking. Any ideas?

03-04-2005, 10:27 AM
Didn't get back to my workout yesterday to finish it, but I think I can still get 5 step aerobic workouts in this week. This morning I did step aerobics, and tonight I plan to do pilates.

03-04-2005, 11:04 AM
No structured exercise for me yesterday, although I was walking around for 6 hours... fast walking because no matter what happened yesterday, we were always late! I'm hoping to get a tae-bo workout in later, I will walk 1.5 km's this morning.

Barbara - I know it might sound silly, but get some REALLLY upbeat fast music, that always helped me get my pace up.


03-04-2005, 11:15 AM
Thanks for the idea, Aimee -- I listen to Celtic folk music mostly -- I'll have to make a tape of the faster reels and see if I can keep up! But that would be a good thread -- what songs inspire you most?

03-04-2005, 12:46 PM
thurs. Took a 2 hr walk through the park... it was a beautiful day!

03-04-2005, 01:49 PM
did 4 mile WATP tape yesterday. Cramping too bad to get in my exercise this morning. I will probably use mom's exercise ball tonight and do some of those exercises.

03-05-2005, 01:25 AM
Barbara - I really enjoy techno type music.. some of my fav songs to listen to are "Equador - by Sash!", or anything by Brooklyn Bounce, there is a song by them which is upbeat, and then does this little interlude where the person says "don't stop", I can't tell you how many times thats helped me out :)
