I am coming to an end with my 10 minute trainer program.  I have 2 workouts left and then it's onto another program.  Based on how much activities I did today, I would say that I am more active now then I have ever been.  I would also verge to say that the 10 minute trainer saved my life !  No not really, but it's true that prior to me starting this workout, I was on a one-way street to the back alleys of health.  Ooooo ver weight and oooover eating.

DAY 81 - 10 MINUTE TRAINER by Tony Horton "CARDIO" + "CARDIO CORE" + "UPPER BODY"... Almost at the finish line.

Saturday April 4, 2009 I'm almost there.  3 more workouts remaining and BAM!  Emeril Laggasse style.  Todays workout was great of course.  Today, I didn't bother wearing my polar Hr monitor.  I tried, but I think my chest strap is dead. The last three workouts are killer.  Total Body workout being the toughest of the bunch. The last week I have been awful in sticking with my eating plan.  I pack my lunches, but I don't eat them.  I eat out at BP, RR, WS...  Not good. Tomorrow, my...

APRIL FOOLS DAY 78 - 10 MINUTE TRAINER by Tony Horton "TOTAL BODY 2" + "CORE CARDIO" + "UPPER BODY"... What's the deal with HR training. (Read this)

Today, I wanted to see how my workout results would be if I could keep my HR in my target zone for the duration of the workout.   I did so stay in the ZONE for 23minutes.  To be honest, the workout felt easy.  However, if by staying in the target zone rather than all over the place is better for me, then why not.
