What's Going On With Me - The Latest and The Greatest

My daughter, Rachael, and I did Tae Bo Basic Monday night and found out we needed more of a workout.

So Tuesday night we worked out with Tae Bo Advanced. It was alright, but we both agreed that Slim in 6 is a much harder workout. This really surprised me, because I remember Tae Bo Advanced used to severely kick my butt.

So Wednesday night, we decided to do Slim in 6 'Burn it Up'. We turned the music off for the first time and found we liked the workout a whole lot better.

The shocking thing is last night's one-hour session was the best Slim in 6 workout yet. I thought we would struggle because it had been five days since we'd done the 'Burn it Up' workout. Rachael thinks it's because our bodies needed that recovery time.

After hearing my daughter and I talk about Slim in 6 and seeing the results we achieved, my sister-in-law, Robin, decided to do it too. She's only been doing it two weeks and she said she can already see a difference in how her arms and legs look. She's real excited. I talked to her on the phone last night and she said, "Oh my gosh. It's so hard!" She's lovin' it though.

Rachael and I have decided to do Tae Bo Advanced on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, and do Slim in 6 'Burn it Up' on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. We plan on doing this for the next six weeks but we need ideas on what workout to do after the six weeks is up.

If you like doing workout videos at home, I would love to hear your favorites.

Until next time...

I had never heard of the slim in 6 but should probably look into it. I always liked the Winsor Pilates but who knows. Sounds like you are building up your strength! Great for you!

Those look like pretty good workouts. Great job!

Some others that I find intriguing are "body combat" and some of the kettlebell workouts. I guess the key is just to keep moving.

I truly enjoy your posts- keep it up!

Heidi - I've done Pilates and liked it okay but not enough to stick with it. Slim in 6 is really good even though it's tough doing the same DVD for 4-1/2 weeks (you do the Ramp it Up DVD for 1-1/2 weeks and then the Burn it Up DVD for 4-1/2 weeks) but I really like what it's done for me.

Steve - Thanks for the congrats. Have you heard of Matt Furey? My husband bought his DVDs several years ago. They're just not in the format I like. It's more instructional and you do your own thing at your own pace. What's the name of the body combat DVDs? I'm thinking about the kettlebell workout but I wonder if I'm coordinated enough for it. I'm kind of clumsy and wonder if I'll drop it on my foot! :)

I have a huge collection of yoga videos. I love my yoga videos. I love yoga.

I hate sweat.

You go on with your Burn It Up self! I'm rooting for you.

Thanks, Carol! I'm definitely not coordinated enough for yoga. You would laugh if you saw me 'trying' to do it.
