I’m a bit late updating my journey, what can I say, I’m a busy mom, even busier now that I’ve been working out more consistently. In fact, I’ve been using the Total Gym every single day and have gotten down a pretty good routine.

When I first started using the Total Gym I struggled with remembering where each part went, how to change the wing attachment, which is fabulous for pull-ups by the way, something I could never do completely vertical. I’m also adding in the Leg Pull Accessory which allows me to do more intense leg muscle exercises in addition to the squats. But like I said, I’ve gotten into a routine and can quickly flow from one exercise to the next without much break time in between.

At this point I’m not seeing much of a weight loss yet but I have noticed some of my tighter fitting jeans are feeling ore comfortable. That’s a very good sign that I’m heading in the right direction.

    Keep up the good work Cat. Dedication is a big part of the process, and for that I commend you!

    Cheers to comfortable jeans. LOL!

    I was wondering how you were doing with this! I’m proud of you that you’re doing it…I wish I could but can’t b/c of my back. You may not be seeing the scale drop numbers but that may be because you are increasing your muscle weight but actually losing bad weight at the same time. Keep up the good work! :)

    I wish the hubster would let us sell the treadmill and get this instead. We only have room in this house for one piece of equipment. I wish it was this.

    I should definitely get myself a Total Gym. I’m in dire need of getting back into shape. I no longer have the excuse of being pregnant!

    Wow, look at you!!
    Keep up the great work-I know how hard it is to maintain a daily schedule; I can’t IMAGINE doing that AND being a mother and wife!

    That’s great! It sounds like a wonderful workout. It’s great you’re keeping up with it and have found a routine to fit it in your day. Sometimes that’s the biggest challenge. Good luck and I hope you continue to enjoy using it. I look forward to your updates.
