Decisions, Decisions

If ya'll remember...on August 17th I told you that I was getting back into the swing of things with working out. That means it has already been 18 days and I want to give you an update on how it's going. Overall, I did well up until the past week. Here's how my schedule went:

Jillian Michaels

Week 1
Day 1: Level I- 30DS
Day 2: Level I- 30DS
Day 3: Level I- 30DS 
Day 4: Level I- 30DS
Day 5: Womp.
Day 6: Womp.
Day 7: Zumba! 60 minutes of straight interval cardio

Week 2
Day 8: Wade Hustle! 90 minutes of cardio
Day 9: Womp.
Day 10: Level II- 30DS
Day 11: Zumba! 60 minutes of straight interval cardio
Day 12: Womp.
Day 13: Hot Yoga- 90 minutes of pure sweat
Day 14-18: Womp.  

The "womps" are the days that I didn't do a darn thing. I started out strong! Unfortunately, Labor Day weekend did me in. Too much extra time to fit in some shopping and lunch dates with friends and family! :) That's always a necessity!  I'll have to fill you in on what I bought while we were out! 

Oh yeah! Remember how I was going to strictly do just the 30 Day Shred? Well, I can never pass up a good Zumba or Hot Yoga session! Plus, you can't expect to lose weight or build muscle without cardio. Strength training + Cardio = The Real Deal! I'm not quite sure how I feel about doing two-a-days either. Say I go to Zumba in the morning, it would be good if I did the Shred in the evening as well. However, that's super ambitious and I'm at a slow and steady pace right now. I should try to achieve my first goal and simply focus on working out once daily. The battle begins...again. I wish I could do nothing and have a stomach like Jillians. 

30 Day Shred

On a side note, my actual gym membership is ending this month. I joined last year and have gone quite a bit but mainly during the Winter months. Technically, just my contract is ending, so I can still go on a month-to-month basis but now I can cancel whenever I'd like. (Yay, not trapped anymore!) The only thing that's swaying my decision to leave the gym is the money. I'm not sure if I'm getting my money's worth. I feel like I am but I would have to track my time spent there to actually see if I was. I feel like I would need to go more often. Also, we have the Total Gym so I would like to give that a legitimate try too. If the Total Gym is really a "total gym" then I should cancel my gym membership, right? Sigh. Decisions. Decisions. 

Any help is welcomed! Have any of you tried the Total Gym out? Are you have a rough time like me when it comes to daily workouts?
