I am a machine – The Shrinking Jeans of Lisa


November 20, 2009 By lisa

either that, or a glutton for punishment.

I knew that today was THE day for the Sisterhood to began the new More Workouts 6 week challenge by EA Sports Active.  I also knew that i wanted to squeeze in some running mileage because you know, we have that Globetrotting challenge going on as well, plus I’m running that 5 Miler on Thanksgiving Day.

Rather than choosing one over the other, I decided to do BOTH.  I am about to die.

I ran first, and I ran fast.  Changing it up a bit, I decided to alternate sprinting with walking.  OMFG, I have never sweated so much in my life.  It was literally pouring off of my face and my heart was beating so fast.  It was a great workout!  I only did 2.5 miles in 29 minutes but I figure with all the walking I did in between sprints, that was pretty good.

I then drove home, powered up the Wii, popped in the More Workouts game, and went to town on that.

I have to say, I very much enjoyed it.  I liked the scenary, I liked the music, I liked the addition of a warm-up and cool-down, I liked the new exercises, and I liked the ab work.  My favorites were the obstacle course and the cardio boxing.  Jumping rope- not so much, probably because my legs were already so tired from the running.

I have to be honest that I have not done much resistance training in the last month or more and I knew I needed to add it back in in order to get the most of my workouts.   I haven’t quite figured out my new exercise schedule (cardio+More Workouts) and how to fit it in to my already jammed-packed schedule, but I will figure it out.


For now, I am patting myself on the back for doing both and for burning upwards of 600 calories- woot, woot!
