Holiday Overindulgence

have you upped your workout regime in prep for holiday overindulgence? or are you just thinking you'll be strong and NOT overindulge??? i know i'll have seconds when i don't need them. at least thanksgiving is really just one day (or two) of overdoing it. and really the foods aren't necessarily even bad for you... unless you eat gravy the way i eat gravy. :) it's just hard not to keep going back for more. december is the real killer for me, with all the holiday parties and whatnot that lasts for weeks. it's hard to be good for so long, day after day.

Burn Up to 1000 Calories

the effectiveness of the 3-day melt program is really something. when sequenced together in the order they recommend, the exercises create a workout that burns up to 1000 calories. whoa!! that's half the days calories. or more, or lots of us ladies. i can see how folks can lose so much so fast. that's the smart way to exercise, if you ask me.

Define Your Purpose

have you used the journal that came with mitch's 3 Day Melt program? i don't know what i was expecting, exactly, but i have found it to be quite meaningful in its approach. you know? the book asks us to define our purpose for beginning the program. i would have to say that for myself, it was to start doing something healthy for myself that would improve my cardiovascular health in addition to building and toning muscle. i'm not out for a gymnast's body, but i want more tone and definition on my arms and legs and a tighter tummy. oh, and the buns, too, let's not forget those. and mitch delivers.

Small Changes

let's focus on this one of mitch's aphorisms today. it's one of my favorites: "even small changes in my life are big achievements." exercise, diet, interpersonal relationships. whatever. it works and it feels good. thanks, mitch!
