I have to admit. I'm not too torn up about my before pics. When I page back to my before pics in early April of last year I was in a lot worse shape. I think I look more today like I did in my "after 2 weeks of Zwow's" pictures. Click here to see the previous pics: Last Year!. This makes me pretty darn happy considering I'm starting earlier than last year and I've got a head start on my fitness as it is. BUT!!! There is still a lot of work. As you can see, my cellulite came back. Pesky cellulite. :( My lower body has always been my problem area and I know from past experience that muscle toning helps but does not get rid of cellulite. I need to watch my diet as well. And cardio is amazing for it as well. I've noticed in these DVD's there is a lot more cardio than on her youtube channel. Which is probably the reason its called Power Cardio. ha!

Anyway, that is it for today. I will post my results for day 3 after I do my workout tonight. :) Until then, take care and good luck!!

ZCut Cardio Series Day 2!

These are friggin' hard!!!

I love it though. I am sweating buckets by the end. 

In this workout the reps increase for each exercise. There was one where you had to do 10 high knees to a plank and right back up again for 60 reps!! Yes, six-friggin-ty!!! At about 6 reps I thought, "maybe she meant 6, cause I'm good." But nope. 60. I did it though. There is nothing like that feeling of accomplishment you get when you finish something you thought for sure you couldn't do. So thank you, Zuzka, once again for proving me wrong. I am kind of a superwoman. :) 

So I was able to do this workout in 21 minutes and 36 seconds!! I also took my measurements today. I, unfortunately, don't have my before picture up yet but hopefully by tomorrow I'll upload it. It ain't pretty. lol. 

My current measurements are:
Waist-30 inches
Arm-11 inches
Leg-23 1/2 inches

I'm curious to see how that changes week to week because I've always just taken pictures. I've never actually measured how many inches I lost. Anyway, its late and I need to get to bed!! Take care and good luck!

ZCut Cardio Series: Day 1!!!

Yes!! I started it! Finally! I'm starting a month later than I planned, but I started it nonetheless! :) 

About a month ago I fell hard on my tailbone ice skating and it took a long time to heal. I was so bummed that I couldn't start my workout but I stayed as active as possible. I cleaned the day after I hurt my tailbone and I was in tears because it hurt so bad! I work for a cleaning company and twice a week I clean a law office for 3 hours. I just took on two more jobs recently. The last 2 Sunday's I cleaned for 7 hours straight. Its good money and I get to pick my hours so I don't lose time with my kids! AND I get exercise while I do it! :)

Jim and I have finally booked our trip to Florida with the girls. We are going to Orlando the beginning of May! I'm so excited! BUT, that also means I will be wearing my bikini about a month before I planned on it. So I started to panic a little and decided to get my butt in gear. I also just got my belly button pierced so I need to get buff so I feel confident about showing it off! :)

Anyway, with that said, I started the ZCut Series today. I'm starting it with another girl at school so I'm excited to see how she did! I'm excited to see how you all are doing too! I'm going to start commenting on Zuzka's site as well. My account name is PBmommyPL. The more support the better! :) 

My time for Day One was 13 Minutes and 48 seconds. I'll post before pictures soon as well as my measurements! I'm just too tired right now! LOL! I worked my 3 jobs today. Did the warm up, workout and cool down and I still have homework to do for tomorrow! I tried to do the Bonus ab workout but realized quickly, my tailbone is not quite ready for that yet. :(  Take care, everyone and thanks for sticking with me!
