Believe it or not, it is possible to lose weight without a pricey gym membership. I did have a gym membership the first time I lost weight (you can find that story HERE), mainly just to use a treadmill. (Running in Wyoming year round is nearly impossible. Unless you're crazy and enjoy running in -30 degree weather on ice a good 6 months a year). But I still preferred my at home workouts.
So, here it is in all its glory... Dun Dun Dun... my "gym".
Yup, that's my bedroom. Being a single mama, going to the gym is not an option this time around - at all. So I make do with what I have. As
My resistance bands came with my JM - Body Revolution order. Everything else I've picked up at my all time favorite store (enter sarcasm here), Walmart.
A. I'm cheap
B. That's all we got
And yup, I shop at Walmart in my sweats. Sue me. Moving on...
Currently I am doing strictly Jillian Michaels Body Revolution with some added cardio from time to time. I highly recommend it if you have the money to spend. I am on week 6 and have lost 15 pounds (although I did peek at the scale
every morning, afternoon and evening this morning and it showed a 2 lb loss so far this week. 15+2=17 in case anyone hates math as much as me... fingers crossed it looks that good on Sunday) and 7 inches in just my waist and hips.
I've also used all of these for variety in the past, and will again after JMBR. None of them cost more than $10 a piece and all can be done without special equipment. Win!
That "it's too expensive" excuse? Yeah... doesn't work. You can do it!
