New month

Hard to believe it's MARCH already!

I did well for February. Met my 5lb loss goal for the month. I wish I would have done better, but since I was sick and entire week, I guess it isn't bad.

I got an awesome heart rate monitor {finally} this weekend. Works great, still learning some of the functions. I hope it's more accurate than the cardio machines at the gym. It shows my calories burned much higher.

This months new goal is to complete the Jillian Michael's 30day shred DVD program. Last night was the first workout. I now know why everyone who has done it - CURSED it!!! It was tougher than I expected, but I completed it (with little modification) It was hard on my damaged knees in some spots and I can't to the jumping to the degree she shows, but we really enjoyed it and my HRM showed I burned 577 calories (not sure if I believe that, but my heart rate was certainly up during all the cardio and most of the strength training).


  1. I am a fan of the Shred( actually I think I have become addicted to how it makes me feel when I am done) but I have to go back to level one today as level 2 and 3 are sooo hard on the knees. I injured my left one doing it.

    Great job on completeing your weight loss goal for Feb.!

  2. Way to go Angie! Good luck with the Shred! It sounds hard but sooo effective.

  3. Congrats on meeting your goal! And all the luck w/the Shred :)
