Total Gym Total Mom Challange – Week One (and discount code)

It’s been a week now for the Total Mom Total Gym Challenge and what a week it has been. I have had such a crazy busy week this past week that I am so glad this is a review. This is how I get easily side tracked and then it just becomes a shift in priorities. I am hoping that it being a shift in the positive direction after forcing it into my schedule. After all eight weeks is quite a bit of time.
Thankfully the Total Gym comes with a lot more then just the gym. I have been using the poster it came with for quick reference and the cards are complete life savers. Honestly if I didn’t have the cards I wouldn’t know what I was doing. I use the Women’s 6-8 minute Workout they give. It definitely takes me a LOT longer then the 6-8 minutes as stated. Maybe after doing it for a long time and you memorize all the steps you could possibly do it in that time frame but I’ve been averaging 30-45 minutes.
I about died when I found out that I had to share a photo of me with the gym. I don’t know what I’m more embarrassed about. My chubby self or the fact that I’m sick of picking up the books that keep falling behind me and decided I was just leaving them there. I apologize about my messy bedroom but it’s where I have the gym. I leave it unfolded since there is room. It makes it a lot easier for me to make it convenient. It is right in front of my face.
I also found out I had to share my measurements. Ugh! So for week one I am definitely left feeling depressed. So here they are chest: 37, waist: 36, and hips 39. Not horribly bad but not the size 2 measurements I had before kids. My main target area is my stomach. If at the end of this I see an improvement in that area I will definitely eat my embarrassment and know it was worth it!
When going through the cards and putting together my schedule we stumbled upon a Kids Workout and Johnny was absolutely thrilled he could “play”. I had it have a serious talk with him reminding him that this was not a toy and that he was not allowed to you the Total Gym without supervision. When I had to have my photo taken he said “Hey Mom, what about me?” So here’s my partner in crime: age 9 (he wants me to add- but almost 10).
