Piloxing and new stuff to come...

The blogosphere is filled with post holiday confessions and pre-New Year resolutions. I'm pretty much in the same boat. I ate poorly & didn't exercise for most of the month of December. Monday morning though, I got up and worked out, forty minutes worth of workouts I found OnDemand and 2 miles of walking on the treadmill. Tuesday morning I did some pilates and another 2 miles. Nothing spectacular but I gotta start somewhere. I've been eating clean for 3 days. Starting off the day on the right foot with exercise isn't easy but it helps get me in the right mental place. I've already planned what workout is on the docket for tomorrow...piloxing. Seriously, that's what it's called. According to the description, it's a fusion of kickboxing and pilates. I'll let you know how that works. It's kinda fun looking through the 100+ options of free workout routines offered OnDemand (plus it gives me something to do in the wee hours of the morning when I'm up nursing the lil pumpkin).
Hubby goes back to work next week and then I can get my "real" routine started, which I can easily say I'm looking forward to. While I love the fact that he's been home to help me for the last 6 weeks, we're starting to get on each others nerves lol.
One other thing, I finally got around to ordering my new scale and it's supposed to be delivered tomorrow. On one hand I'm happy, on the other I'm scared. There is no cheating with a digital scale. I can't "accidently" adjust the dial like I could with my old one. At least it will keep honest.
Stay tuned, coming up I've got some new yummy snacks to share and and I'll review the scale too, just for fun...

How did the new exercise program go? Did you like it? I know that I really like kickboxing. Little A was telling C he was punching along with me. It was kinda funny. I hope you like it. I know that I can find some workouts on Netflix. Then you can have a change when you want. I hope that you like your scale. I know when we got our new scale from Costco, it is one that you can't cheat with either, and I think it is kind of a relief because that is just what it is and it is either good or bad and you can't make things show just what you like it to show. If that makes any sense.

I bought one of those "Biggest Loser" scales and it's not working right...not with my husband. It works fine with me but it won't register my husbands's weight. The limit is 300 or 350 and he's around 260. Anyhoo-let me know how you like you're new scale, I think I may be taking this one back.

My hat is off to you-I cannot, for the life of me, get myself to exercise!!!! I have weights, I have the treadmill, I have the TIME!!! I even get motivation...I just don't want to!

Anyhoo-Happy New Year to you and your family!!
