I'm still coming back from my two frustrating weeks of head and chest crud. I'm never a fast runner but with chest crud I was all but jogging in place. So I was hoping to pick up the pace slightly now that I'm crud free.
As I've mentioned previously, Wii step aerobics was one of the first workouts I did back when I first started my health kick. As I got better at it and I stopped feeling like I wanted to die while doing it, I realized I needed to find ways to make it more challenging. First, I ordered a lift for my step. Mine is an Everlast. I seriously love it.
EA Sports Active: More Workouts. I like that it counts my steps and holds me accountable if I don't stay on pace.
wrist weights. Those were a whole new world of challenge because my arms are like wet noodles. So far I'm only up to 2 pounds on each wrist.

So then we channeled Tim Gunn and made it work with some packing tape holding that crap together. I look like a broke down mess while I workout. I look like a full blown crazy broke down mess while I workout in that vest. But I don't care because I know for a fact it gives me a run for my money.
