Loose Jeans

Jeans are always tight as soon as I put it on after shower. I always have to suck it all in. But not yesterday. My 1-week workout and less food diet is working. Here’s what I did for this week.

Monday: Insanity Plyometric Cardio Circuit, Marie Forleo’s Crunch Dance Blast

Tuesday: Insanity Cardio Power & Resistance, Marie Forleo’s Crunch Dance Blast

Wednesday: : Insanity Cardio Recovery & Max Recovery

Thursday: Pure Cardio & Abs

Friday: Cardio Abs, 30minutes dancing

Saturday: 55minutes Taebo Boot Camp

Crunch Dance Blast with Marie Forleo

March 22nd: Crunch Dance Blast, 38 minutes.

March 23rd: Crunch Dance Blast, 38 minutes. 40minutes, Insanity Cardio Power & Resistance

I am loving the Crunch Dance Blast with Marie Forleo. The combo moves of hip-hop and Latin are great. And if you’re a good dancer, you can put your style and flair into the moves. I could actually take the 6 combo-steps and create a kick-ass 3-4 minute dance number with any of the latest top 40 hits right now.

I don’t like the music playing along with the dance so I mute it off then just turn my own dance playlist which consist of Britney Spears, Far East Movement, Enrique Iglesias, Pitbull, JLO, Usher, and Keri Hilson. It is awesome. I got Marie’s moves pretty much memorized even though I only started this past Monday. I can do the moves with her, along with the other dancers just by watching her and not having to listen to her instructions. That’s not to say the moves are easy. Not in the least bit. The transitions from each move are actually difficult if you’re not a natural dancer. The moves are not your typical aerobics moves. And you won’t do each steps repetitively before moving into the other one because 1 routine actually consist of 4 individual moves. Which is why I love this workout dance video.

Depending on your health, you can make this workout low-impact or go full blast and really dance your ass off. I do the latter.

The Cheesecake Looks Soooo Good

But I only had 1 thin slice. YAY Me, I think, :(

No I’m Ok, don’t worry. I can have another slice tomorrow, then another slice the next day, I’m sure.

And that’s what I’ve learned through the years. That you don’t have to eat the whole thing in one seating. Especially desserts. You can eat a little bit so you’re not depriving yourself of anything. Eat moderately, coz the next day, you can have the same thing if you want. Moderately as well.
