Weight Loss Journey Week 1

Weight Loss Journey Week 1

When I was a stay at home mom, I had plenty of time to exercise. I would do cardio workouts that were just under an hour. When I started working full time, I found myself with less time over all. By the time I got home, I was too exhausted to exercise. When I got home, I just wanted unwind and get ready for the evening. Now that I am stay at home wife and mom again, I am really trying to get back into exercise.

I have dealt with health issues, such as vertigo, weakness, not enough energy, or dizziness. About two months ago, I tried getting back into cardio by doing a “mixed martial arts” workout program that I used to do a few years ago. Unfortunately, a few days in, I injured myself pretty badly. It put me out of commission for a good week and then a few more weeks for the pain to finally go away.

When the pain finally went away, I started with pilates and then walking and jogging on the treadmill.

I am now on a journey to lose weight. I want to lose 20 or more pounds. My journey isn’t just about weight loss. It is about feeling better about myself and my body. I want to slim down and tone up. This is a new start to find my body from a few years ago! A few years ago, I was able to keep up with PiYo, Turbo Fire and 21 Day Fix. I use to rotate my workouts to change it up and challenge myself.

This week, I started doing Turbo Jam. I am starting super slow this time. I don’t want to injure myself. In addition, I also started eating black beans at least twice a day. I like adding black beans to scrambled eggs for breakfast and I can add it to rice and veggies for dinner. As a vegetarian, I was lacking the protein that my body needed.

I first started doing Turbo Jam in 2009 or so. I bought Turbo Jam on Amazon with gift cards I had earned by doing various online programs. I eventually worked my way up to Turbo Fire. I am trying my best to stay motivated with my workouts this time around.

What keeps you motivated? Do you exercise? Do you have any weight loss tips?

  1. Good luck with your new workout routine! I’m sorry you have vertigo. I have it too and I know how hard it is to do things and having to make sure you don’t get dizzy. I like to walk every day for my exercise.
