The point of this post, though, is that I haven't been able to stay on track with my activity. I have an activity challenge prepared. (It's part of my October goals).
I bought Jillian Michael's Ripped in 30 recently. I took a look at it, and it's tough. The DVD has 4 workouts at 4 levels. Each level gets increasingly difficult. My sister, Jesse, and I have agreed to do it. (If you're like me, if you have to be at home, and can't get to the gym as often as you'd like, I highly recommend getting a few workout videos to do at home. This DVD was about $10. Even if I only use it for the month, that's still less than a monthly, gym membership).
I had hoped to start the challenge last week, but I wasn't able to because I've been sick. I am recovering this week, but I am still not feeling up to working out. Hopefully, I will be starting next week. Last week, I was comforting myself with food and eating junk, which I am sure will help speed up my recovery. ;) This week I realized that just because I can't workout doesn't mean I can't stay on plan. I read this article on the Weight Watchers website, and it helped me as far as when I should and shouldn't workout and how to stay on plan. I hope it's helpful to you, too.
