Slim In 6 Update and Winner Announcement!!
Wow, am I excited! I have been on the Slim In 6 program from BeachBody and Debbie Siebers for 16 days now (this being the 16th). Due to a cracked disc, I haven't been able to start on the Ramp It Up portion of the program yet, but a new one is on it's way and in the meantime I am adding in some of the extra workouts along with the Start It Up dvd. I wasn't sure how much it had really affected anything; after all, I have been on the easiest portion for over 2 weeks now, and it is recommended to move up to the second disc on week 2. And, in addition to that, I haven't been following the meal guide. Eating healthier foods and controlling my portions? Yes, but I have still been enjoying ice cream and other treats, although not as frequently and not as big a helping. However, when I weighed and measured today, I was thrilled to see results! I have lost 4.5 pounds, and a total of 7.5 inches! Slim In 6 is really working!! I can't wait to see what the next few weeks will do; I am so excited to be moving on to the next step within the next couple days!
In addition to using the Start It Up workout 6 days a week, I have been adding in extra 15-25 minute workouts. I absolutely love the 2 bonus workouts included; Core Cardio Express, and Thin Thighs Guaranteed. The Thin Thighs workout is a simple 12-15 minute workout-but it's not easy! This is probably the BEST lower body workout I have ever tried. The first day I did it, my lower body was sore, but in a good way. And while I have been a little sore from other lower body workouts before, I could actually feel the muscles working while I did Thin Thighs. The Cardio Core Express is a 35 minute workout that, to be honest, I couldn't finish in the first time I tried it-I had to take a 5 minute break, come back, and jump in again. This is one of the most intense core workouts I've used, and Debbie really pushes you on this one! But it definitely gives you the results you want! I look forward to moving into Ramp It Up next week, and I'll keep you updated along the way!
