WFMW - Workouts

I've been trying to decide if I should include my weight loss journey this time on my blog. Last time I did, I was not successful, so I thought I didn't want to "fail" again in a public way.

But, for whatever reason, I feel compelled to share it with you AGAIN! You just have that sort of pull on me! :o) So I'm going to link up with Kristen over at We Are THAT Family and share with you each week during her "Works For Me Wednesdays" the things that are working for me.

Thank you, Tina, for introducing me to her blog.

As you may recall, I joined a "team" in the Owensville area, and we call ourselves the Motivated Mamas! We signed up with a bank who is doing a local Biggest Loser contest, and I'm really excited to be a part of it. My first weigh-in proved to be very inspiring to me...I lost six pounds!

This week I wanted to share my workout routine. Yes, for the first time since college I actually have a daily, committed, workout routine! I absolutely COULD NOT be successful without my sweet friend and neighbor, Kim, who is getting up with me EVERY MORNING at 6:00 am to walk/jog/run with me. We are using her hubby's iPod, and he has an 8-week program on it designed to help us train for a 5K. Each morning I get up and meet her outside my door, and we just start walking until the little voice in her ear tells us to start running! Even when it's 20 degrees outside, even on Saturdays, WE DO THIS! And can I just say, I love you, Kim! :o)

In the evenings I also workout with a Biggest Loser DVD. My BFF and team member, Kassie, suggested the Boot Camp one, and I'm really enjoying it. I just really like Bob, I prefer him if I had to pick (instead of Jillian). But I think I might switch it up and try the 30 Day Shred after my weeks are technically done with Bob. I just hope she doesn't yell the F word at me!

I plan to do WFMW for 10 more weeks and share with you what's working and how I'm doing!

Six pounds in AWESOME! Congrats! I have heard so many good things about the shred, not just for weight loss but for weight maintenance once you reach your goal. I might have to go find a copy for myself!

You're lucky to have a workout partner-- especially in the mornings :)

Stopping by from another blog we both read!

Chrissy-I couldn't/wouldn't get out that early if it wasn't for you. I am really starting to enjoy my workouts in the morning. I wish I would workout at night, but I am not right now. Thank you for getting up with me as well and keep up the great work!

I look forward to hearing all about it! Keep up the good work!

I look forward to hearing about your progress! As part of a health initiative at my husband's office, he is also participating in a "Biggest Loser"-type contest. It makes the whole weight-loss process a bit more interesting!

I love reading about weight loss journeys!! Two friends and I recently started a blog together to encourage one another and others. It's

Hi there:

I found you through WFMW. I have lost 25 pounds and have 17 to go. I seem to have slowed down for now, but hope to get going again.

The six pounds is great! Hang in there.

I work out at Curves three days a week and am trying to start walking on the other days. My husband actually walked with me yesterday. (Yes, I'm shocked and thrilled.) My mom said she would walk with me, too.

Hope we can both do well.
