My Thoughts-
Welcome to my new fit challenge. I’m going to be trying out 10 Minute Trainer for the next 3 months. One excuse people give when it comes to not working out and being a mom time is even shorter. But I hope to show you that with a program like 10 Minute trainer there is no excuse. Some days I will only have time for a 10 minute workout but on days I have more time I will be adding 1-2 more workouts. The nice thing about this program is they give you a calendar with the 10 minute workout you should do that for that day, but if you want to add 1-2 more workouts they give you the ones you can do for that day too.
10 years ago I tried Tony Horton’s Power 90 and it was kick butt, so I look forward to the 10 Minute Trainer(TMT). My goals are to loose inches, some weight and be able to show off some muscles.
After the first two workouts I can tell you this is no joke. 10 Minutes isn’t easy. You do ten moves in ten minutes without taking a break to reset. I know a lot of times when working out we take 30-40 seconds to reset for the next move. Well, not here, you just keep moving. It’s hard at first since I don’t know the workouts but I’m sure in a week or two I’ll be use to them and be able to switch over quickly.

Before I give you my weight, I need those of you who have been here awhile to know that I’m using a new scale and it weighs me heavier then my old scale, I have gained a few pounds since my last official weigh-in back in Sept with RevAbs but only a few. My goal is to loose 20-25lbs on this new program and I hope that will help with the small weight gain and help get me where I want to finally be at(165-160). I also want to point out that I did gain some inches back. Breaks my heart knowing how hard I worked for a tinier body to just let it go over the past couple of months. But I know I can get back to my fitter body quickly and I will be tinier then I was in September, with hopefully some muscle to show off too.
