Week two of my six week trial of the Nike Training Club app starts today. I'd love to report that I've lost pounds or inches or that I have been forced into a smaller size of pants, but alas, I cannot. However, it's not because the app isn't working for me. I am just working against me.

I spent 4 days of the last 7 in beautiful San Diego attending the BlogHer '11 conference. It was an amazing experience but I didn't eat well at all. I mean...at all! I missed meals, "snacked" on Dove bars and Twizzlers, and helped myself to more then a few deliciously frozen calorie-laden drinks at the many open bars. Though I did two zumba classes, ran the BlogHer 5K and walked a lot (my hotel was 1 mile away from the conference center) the eating I did left me feeling sluggish and bloated.

I was able to use the app 4 times this week for the quick 15 minute "Get Focused" workouts for abs and butt however that wasn't enough. I realize I need to up my Nike Training Club quotient for next week if I really want to get any results. The thing I love about this app is that I can use it anywhere. I tapped into it in my hotel room and in very little space was able to get a good workout. I also use it in my living room among the toys and "kid clutter". I don't have all the fancy equipment but it doesn't matter. You don't need any of that to use this program.

This week I am upping the cardio part of my workouts in addition to the NTC activities. I am challenging myself to do four sweat-inducing cardio sessions as well as six NTC workouts (15 minutes). I am a little worried about finding time to do it all but I just have to make a goal and try as hard as I can to achieve it. Nothing good for you is ever easy, right? Next week maybe I can report some good news on the skinny jeans front. Wish me luck!
