Today I decided to take the next step towards the new Thinner me. Yes, Cardio and eating better has gotten me so far but today I decided to start adding some routines into my exercise lifestyle.
So I was browsing and looking to see if they have any free games for launch to entice people and the only two I discovered were Killer Instinct which is not a full version and it starts off by telling you that in order to earn achievements and rank on the leader-boards you have to purchase some version of the game. I think it ranges from $29.99 to $14 billion dollars or so if you want to make sure that you get all of the upgrades and characters and levels as they are released. I played one fight and decided that I still hate fighter games and deleted it.
However the other thing I found is a gem, a not advertised and well hidden gem and it's Xbox Fitness.
It works in conjunction with the Kinect and I have a feeling that it won't remain free for long (but I sure hope it does or at least has a reasonable price). There are a lot of free exercise videos including BeachBody, P90x and Insanity. I, however, opt for things that can be done in about 10 minutes or so because I really don't want to die in front of a TV and Video Game System.
After one workout I am happy with it so far. I've got about 5 months to get myself in better shape for the wedding and the Honeymoon in Hawaii and today begins my toning journey.
Today I started at 218 pounds (I've been in this range for 2 months now) and I'm down to a 38 pant size (because I put my pants under my fat instead of around my belly). My belly is sitting around a 46 or 48 and this is the main area that I'm going to be focusing on.
I'll be 100% happy if I stay near my current weight but shrink the gut so I look better in dress shirts and eventually my Tux.
I've come a long way but there is still much left of my journey.
As for my fitbit - last week I did nearly 81,000 steps and went for over 35 miles.
and because no one comes here for the words.... Todays pics I stole from The Chive.
