Disclaimer: I was offered a three-month trial to participate in Weight Watchers. I was given the choice to join online or in person. I chose IN PERSON, however the Weight Watchers E-Tools were not included in this trial, so I purchased the E-Tools with my own money. I have participated in Weight Watchers before and would only recommend brands and products I personally believe in.
It has been a few years since I did Weight Watchers. After having my daughter, I lost about 40 pounds, ran a marathon six months post-partum and I felt amazing. Somewhere along the line, I let some negativity creep in and I lost my motivation. I am not even sure how it all happened now. All I know is that I stopped giving myself the attention I know I deserve.
Years later, I am working my way back to getting fit. I have been running on the treadmill and doing about 20 miles a week. I’ve been doing interval training, which consists of a quarter mile of running all out and alternating with a quarter mile of walking at a 6.0 incline. I’ve noticed that my endurance has improved tremendously and so has my confidence. I keep my 5 and 8 pound dumbbells near the treadmill. I do several sets of dumbbell work during the walking part of my workout, including shoulder presses, bicep curls, triceps extension, hammer curls and lateral raises. I have been really sore, but I am noticing tiny little changes in my arms. It makes me feel strong!
This is my treadmill and Surf Shelf. I’ve made this my own little corner. I’ve been consistent with my exercise and I’m completely addicted to Drop Dead Diva. I’ve been watching it when I’m on the treadmill. You can see my smaller hand weights on the right and my large water on the left. Heart rate monitor is up at the top, with my Yurbuds headphones, pedometer and Garmin.
I have completed two weeks with Weight Watchers now. [Read more…]
