Week 5: My Health and Weight Loss Journey to Get Fit and Lose Weight!

This is week 5 of my lose weight and get fit journey. Here is the link to the original post.

If you saw last weeks post (linked here), you know that my Jillian Michael's Ripped in 30 DVD broke. So, this week I decided to use my One-On-One Training with Jackie DVD.

The One-On-One Training with Jackie DVD is also an HIIT (high-intensity interval training) style workout- alternating weights with cardio.

The DVD has 3 workouts on it: 
  • upper body (20 min)
  • lower body (20 min)
  • core (20 min) 

20 minutes seems like a lot for just a core workout but I just do a portion of it, at least for now.

Jackie spends one minute on each exercise so you really get to workout each muscle group.

This week I used 5 lbs weights for all upper and lower body workouts.

I love that each workout is only 20 minutes, so it's really hard to find an excuse to NOT do it! And, I can feel that I'm really working my muscles which I love!

This DVD is much more simple in its exercises than the Jillian Michael's one and I find I'm enjoying it a lot more.

I wasn't great with my diet, though. I even had ice cream a few nights this week, just cause I'm a rebel like that! haha

I'm never going to be one to deprive myself when it comes to food. I wont starve myself. I do my best to eat healthy foods but I'm still going to enjoy small amounts of ice cream and such.

This week I feel changes happening to my body. I don't see them yet, but I can feel them. I feel muscles forming and that is enough to keep me going.

Here are the workouts I did this week:
(Note: I used the One-On-One with Jackie DVD for all 7 days this week)

Day 1- Upper Body - 20 min
Day 2- Lower Body- 20 min + Core- 7 min
Day 3- Upper Body - 20 min
Day 4- Lower Body - 20 min
Day 5- Upper Body - 20 min + 50 crunches + 50 reverse crunches
Day 6- Lower Body - 20 min + Core - 10 min
Day 7- Upper Body - 20 min

I weighed in on Friday morning as usual. Here are my results:

Weight: no change
Body fat: no change


I was really hoping/expecting to see some results on the scale since I really can feel my body changing now and I worked out every single day. But, I can feel those muscles building. So, I don't care what the scale says at this point. When you feel your body changing, that's motivation enough!

Do you know of any great at home workout DVD's that are short in length but work? Please leave a comment below!
