Three Things Thursday

1.  I was a total wimp yesterday.  It wasn't that cold out (37 degrees) but the crazy winds got me. I  did an elliptical workout instead of battling the wind and muddy roads.  Lame I know, but Season 2 of House of Cards did get released recently and did I mention the wind?  I could hardly open the door to let the dog out.

2.  I ordered some of Zuzka's new DVDs I was only really going to get her kettle bell set since it is geared for beginner kettle bells and I feel like I have so much I could learn from mine, but then I decided to try the yoga and threw in the ZCUT since it was on sale.  It should take me awhile to get through all of this!
I think my favorite DVD from her is the 6 pack abs one.  I never get tired of it and get a great workout every time.  My biggest gripe with Zuzka is that she seems to spend a lot of time doing leg work and not very much on arms, but her arms are very ripped so I feel like she is doing something besides her workouts to get them so buff. 

3. UGH I feel like I keep gaining just a little bit more and a little bit more weight.  Kind of frustrating but is retrospect my eating has not been very good lately.  I just want to eat comfort foods and am so tired of winter.  Not a great excuse I know but it's what I got.  I think a huge help would be to just cut out eating so much sugar.  But wow I love that stuff.  Why does it have to be so good?

What is your workout obsession right now?  Mine is yoga and kettlebells.
What's your food obsession?  Sugar

  1. Don't cut out sugar! Then where would the joy in life be? :) I think the winter months are ok for gaining a little bit of weight. If anything, it'll keep you warmer. I'm sure it'll come back off as soon as it's warm enough for regular outdoor exercise.

  2. Feeling the same way. Need to get this winter over. Want to enjoy running outside again and getting some fresh air in my lungs.

  3. I am feeling the itch to try kettlebells and I love Zuzka. I'll have to check it out!

    I'm feeling same way about winter/eating/weight though I won't get on the scale. I'm limiting sugar and trying to pound the water. We'll see how it works!

  4. I'm really enjoying the Fitness Blender videos (free on YouTube). There are literally HUNDREDS of them, all geared towards different body parts, HIIT, yoga, etc. TONS of choices, and I get to try out some new moves...

    We really have not had much of a winter this year. Not too cold and snowy (with the exception of a few weeks), but lately, it has been REALLY windy here too. Where 30's and 40's are usually really mild, with gusts of 40mph+, it gets COLD.

  5. I've started trail running - there's a really rocky/hilly trail near my house and I feel like I get a totally different workout than running on the streets - a lot more side to side movement.

    I love sugar, too! I cut out chocolate once and it lasted a few weeks. I decided moderation was the key.

    Thanks for the giveaway! Can't wait to spend my giftcard!

  6. I have a girlfriend that swears we try to "pad up" for winter to help keep us warm lol so we are naturally more hungry...I think I just like to eat. I use to love sugar but I swear now it just makes me feel bad. We had birthday cake at work the other day and I felt bad all night...just tired. I keep trying to make the association in my brain, because I still look at think yummmm. Have fun with all the work out DVD's. My work out obsession lately is bench pressing :) and my food obsession has been my protein shakes. I am too lazy to cook lol
