Lori & Kerin - Dance enthusiasts maintaining their fitness with Jazzercise at The Studio
Weight goals: lose about 20 pounds of “winter weight”
Nutrition goals: continue to prepare food and meals in advance so she doesn’t have to eat bad foods in a hurry
Other goals: continue to go to The Studio at least 3x/wk
I maintained my weight in March, maybe lost a couple of pounds.
2) Did you meet your March goals?
Weight: to lose 5 pounds
I maybe lost a couple of pounds
Exercise: To add some outdoor activities to my routine.
I continued to go to Jazzercise as much as my knee would allow. I finally went to the orthopedic doctor and was told that IF I go to Jazzercise, I should only do low impact. So, I am totally bummed that my knee is not allowing me to do what I normally do without pain. I have made some adjustments and go to class two times a week and go on more walks than I did before.
Nutrition: To make better choices and watch my portions.
I am doing my food prep for the week on Sundays and watching my calories, which seems to help with the choices that I am making.
3) My goals for April
Weight: To lose 5+ pounds
Exercise: Continue going to class two times a week, if my knee is feeling good, and walking the loop trail in our beautiful valley.
Nutrition: To continue with food prep
4) Who is your favorite instructor and why? I can’t really single out one instructor, because they’re all awesome!!! I primarily attend with Amy and Christine, they are the 5:25 PM class instructors and that is the only time of day during the week that I can go.
Weight goals: Get to and remain at ideal weight of 125-130
Nutrition goals: Eat better, with a focus on consuming fewer refined carbs
Other goals: Fit into the pants that she has now,
Remain fit and active to reduce back pain from scoliosis as much as possible
Maintain core strength to counter issues associated with her V-back labor & delivery in 2012
1) Stats: 8 lb hand weights Weight: 141 lbs.
March was much better. I am feeling a lot less tired and have not been sick again. I am taking some medication that my doctor prescribed for the Fibromyalgia, and it is definitely helping with sleep, and some with pain. I plan to see my doc next month and explore the role hormones may play in all this....)
2) Did you meet your March goals:
Exercise: to increase hand weights by a pound.
Yes, I increased my hand weights by a pound!!! I did not attend class 4 times per week (that was a goal) but I did go at least 3 times each week!
Nutrition:To reduce carbs, I have decided that everything I eat either needs to be low calorie (200 or less) or no carbs (except veggies!). So when faced with a decision, it has to be low calorie or no carbs.
3) April Goals:
Weight: lose 3-4 pounds.
Exercise: Go to gym 4 times per week.
Nutrition: Follow my rule set above.
4) Who is your favorite instructor and why?
One of my favorite instructors is Christine. She pushes me very hard giving me tips on how to increase my intensity and form.
