Updates

Hello fellow bloggers and blog readers. I have some updates since the end of  November and the beginning of December.  I started Les Mills Pump and it was going extremely well!! I was only 10 days in and I was seeing amazing results. But, I am still nursing and my supply dropped to nothing so I unfortunately had to stop for now. We have struggled quite a bit since our son was born with nursing so I don’t want to see my goals lost here so close to the end.

I returned to light workouts since I only have 35 days until I stop nursing. I really want to be in shape but I want to meet my goals of nursing our son even more. I am so close so until then I will post about other topics and I will return to Les Mills Pump at the end of January. It really is a great program for getting in shape and I think it will help me get to my first weight loss goals.

I hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

 WEEK 1

Greetings and I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving. It was enjoyable to seeing our son enjoy Turkey and vegetables for the first time. I tried not to overindulge on holiday treats but, I still feel the need to get back on a 30 to 60 day program and not let the holidays start old habits in unhealthy eating.

So, I was pretty excited to see my Les Mills Pump workout kit had arrived when I got home yesterday. I decided since it was Monday December 1st I would get my barbell put together and workout to the first program. I am going to commit to 60 Days for this program because it will be a new series and it will be fresh and new for me.

The kit I received includes 7 workouts, 2 each of 5 and 10 pound barbell weights, padded barbell, two clips, and the nutrition guide.

The barbell and weights were easy to assemble and are a good quality padded barbell.

The first workout is an introductory workout and is only 20 minutes long. But, it is not short on quality. I must say I had to take a break on two exercises and did not complete the full repetitions and that made me feel pretty good that this series will be challenging.  The workout goes through squats, chest, shoulders, and arm exercises. They teach you the correct way to row and pickup and put down the barbell.

Today was a rest day but I actually felt pretty good so I decided to complete a pilates workout today.

I have taken my before measurements and I will post those shortly. This Pump series should help provide strength that I need in my arms and back. I look forward to posting my full review as we go along.
