WIATW Challenge Edition, DVD Purchase & FCF

Ok, so I posted over Facebook that I was in the market for new workout DVDs, particularly strength/weight training ones.  I have an entire binder full of cardio based DVDs but not many weight training ones.  I find that I am better at creating delicious healthy meals than scheduling workouts!  Which brings me to this question: If you were given the chance to choose either a personal health chef or a personal trainer, which one would you choose?  I will hands down choose the trainer!

One thing I am getting better at though, is understanding what works for my body and what does not anymore.  If you missed the workout schedule I put together for last week click here.  I noticed that while I did get a pretty good workout I did not get that "workout kicked my butt" feeling the next day.  I need that in order to know that my muscles got a good workout, sounds "cray-cray" but I do!  

Thanks to some of your recommendations I bought 4 workout DVDs; 3 off of amazon and one off of Cathe's website.  The Cathe Total Body workout suggestion was recommended by Brad Casavan (a CPT.)  Michelle Moore the blogger behind Mind, Body, and Goal, recommended 2 workout series from Kelly Coffey-Meyer: Your Best Body & Split Sessions which I have purchased through amazon.  Also through amazon (based on buyers reviews) I purchased the Jari Love get ripped 1000 DVD!

A big thank you to everyone that had suggestions for me!  I now have a wish list with the other recommendations to keep in consideration for my next purchase.
Can't wait to give these DVDs the world!
In the meantime here's the workout schedule I put together for next week:
Just a variation of last week's workout schedule with a little more running involved!

Now, on to what I ate on days 7, 8 & 9th of the Whole Foods-No Crap Challenge.
Had one too many of my Pumpkin Muffins today...too full for lunch!
Oooh! Also...

LARABARs are the best!  WF-NC Challenge approved...

Also, my Full Circle Farm Order for  next week!
I hope everyone had a great weekend!  TTYS!
