I’m the latest recruit to fitness goals, I mean sure at the beginning of the year I had the intention to do something. Fat lotta good that intention did me. When I bought the Wii Fit I had good intentions too but I found that to be too choppy to feel truly effective – and too slowly paced. I want to be taken into a workout quickly after warm up, reminded about posture etc. while working out and I want it to be fun, and over before I know it. Wii Fit gives me too much control and makes it almost too fun. Great for some, not so much for me. I need a little authority in my workouts.
This week I started working out at home to Crunch – Super SlimDown: Pilates Yoga Blend with Ellen Barrett through my Xbox, it’s free for instant download on my Netflix account, which I only use through the Xbox anymore so I wish they’d add more titles to instant availability, but that’s beside the point.
The point is that she isn’t joking! At this rate, I dare not imagine how quickly I’ll be seeing results, but I’ll say this if the soreness is any indication, I’m gonna dig it! I thought living in a third floor apartment would make a difference, you know that maybe I’m sorta fit. Um, no.
She has kicked my butt and made me realize in 40 minutes that I have gotten lazy. I worked out on Tuesday and again on Wednesday to Pick Your Level: Weight Loss Pilates also with Ellen Barrett, because I needed to give the muscles I worked on Tuesday a break.
But today I went back to the Crunch Super Slim Down for the hardcore workout I got on Tuesday. This morning I got out early and bought a yoga mat so that I could save my knees from the carpet burn and worked out after I got home and had some breakfast. It makes me feel great to workout…you know once the sweat is gone.
Last summer my dad had a stroke and that scared the hell out of me and since then he’s been telling me to lose weight, at first I was offended, then I realized it’s only because he loves me and wants better for me than himself. Not that we’re even close in size but I can appreciate his concern. It’ll be far easier to get in shape and stay in shape now than when I’m his age, 50! Now I need to reform my eating habits and I should be really making progress in my health!
Maybe I’ll start posting progress notes. How are you taking care of your body?
Don’t forget to re-sign up for my feed, I’ve had to make changes and start a new feed distribution and will be shutting off the other one in just a few weeks, the one you see in red over in the left sidebar. Stay with me! 😀
Have a great weekend everyone!
