Shapely Girl Week 1

By the time you read this post I will have completed the first week of the shapelygirl fitness challenge. 
What a week it has been!
10-2-12 (workout #1)  The video I choose to review was Lets Get Moving 2-Cardio Toning with Weights. It focuses on upper body weight training as well as cardio. I chose this video because my upper body strength is not what it should be. Not to mention toning can't hurt. :)  First of all I cried because I couldn't make it all the way through the video.  I was frustrated at myself for not being in shape like I should be.  Then I cried because Debra and the other two shapely women in the video just resonated with me. They were so positive and encouraging! She talks about embracing your curves and that shapely girls come in all different shapes and sizes   That I have curves and that I need to embrace my curves! I also cried when I watched the circle time. I love the idea of circle time. I wish every work out had it! In circle time Debra and the ladies discuss fitness, nutrition, motivation, and any topic that might be on the ladies mind that night. I love the camaraderie and support that the women buld with each other.  
I was very very sore after the workout but I felt refreshed. 

10-4-12 (workout #2) 
The second workout I chose to do only the weight segment of the video.  I was able to do more and I felt good. I wish Debra would stop and remind you to drink water or the video would show someone drinking water during the workout. I get so involved in the workout that I forget to drink until it's over. I also after workout I felt less stressed about other areas of my life. Yay for serotonin! 

 10-6-12 (workout #3)
For the third workout I choose to do only the cardio segment of the video. I like how Debra lets you choose which workout you do. Some days you simply have more free time than others. I felt fantastic. I had much more energy. I felt more aware of my body and how it feels. I also started noticing that I was able to lift things easier  that my posture was better and I was able to open jars without the help of my husband!  

Now here are my measurements. I didn't go down on the scale as much as I'd like but I did lose some inches. I put my information in google documents so I could compare the data easier. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AsGZP8sdLMmtdGxUaS1odUI4cl91QXpuaWtaWVZ4MGc

  I'm having a really hard time giving up sodas. Especially during my night class. Any ideas, suggestions, support on how to give them up?

Your right she doesn't talk much about drinking water. I'll start keeping a water bottle on top of the TV or on my computer stand.

Good point! Can't wait to read your Wk 2 post!

She does mention drinking water on the Walking Fit And Fabulous dvd. I now remember to grab water before starting.
