I think I can, I think I can....

Wooo hooooooo! Guess what I found!!!!

So in celebration I ran to Wal-Mart and got these new DVD's to up my workout intensity...
Holy cow! I did the "No more Trouble Zones" b/c that is the one Alisa said was awesome. It is soooo great! I was a bit sad that there is a lot of plank work since I can't do that but even just with the stuff I am able to do - this is a very intense workout!!! I can tell you that this is going to be one I do often!!! I can see how it will really help!
Also - You are supposed to use weights for quite a bit of it. On my right side I held 5 lb and didn't even feel it. As a one handed girl the one arm I have is very strong. I need to get a heavier weight I think. The left side is another story. I had a (I think) good idea. I used an ankle weight around my wrist and held a 2 lb weight. It was REALLY hard. I have a hard time moving it anyway but I think that doing this will be really great therapy at the same time! Sweet!

What do you think? I may have to only use the ankle weight next time as is was REALLY hard to focus on trying to move my arm anyway without trying to lift and hold on to the weight.
I am really glad that I got this DVD (Thank You A) and I am excited to try the other one too - I think this afternoon. And there is still another one I can get!
Variety is the spice of life right!

Let me know how the 30 day shred one is. I think I might get the metabolism buster one sometime soon. That is so great! Good work out huh? Sorry, I did not even think about the planks... I am just so amazed what you ahve done with your arm and hand, great therapy this will be!

I bought the Jillian's metabolism buster. I needed another cardio workout dvd, because I did not like the dancing with the stars one. I will let you know how it goes. By the way, thanks for being awesome! Its nice to have someone so supportive (even though you are miles away!). You make this a lot easier for me. Oh, I am glad for the internet because I get to connect again with awesome cousins! I think someday we need to do a girls vacation sometime. Maybe that should be our treat for losing the weight! ;)
