You may remember this post I did some time ago. Although I haven't posted anything else about it I have been thinking about and working on my list. I will be updating the list and crossing things off as I complete them in this new year.
One of the first things I have done and am so proud of is: exercising. I do not like to exercise. I would love to say that I like it and it's one of my favorites but the truth is I just don't like it. Finding an exercise routine and sticking to it is almost impossible for me. I have tried many things but have not stuck with any.
Well, recently that changed. I found a Jillian Michaels exercise routine on demand and tried it out. It really kicked my butt. I realized that I needed this. I am so very out of shape. I do not have issues with weight but I definitely need some toning in all the right places. My dear hubby found the dvd for me and bought it. He also got me an exercise mat, new sneakers, pants, and weights.
The dvd I am usingI am proud to say that I have stuck to for the last five weeks. I work out four days a week. This dvd is about 55 minutes long including warm up and cool down. When I first started it, I am ashamed to say that I was out of breath by the end of the warm up. I couldn't believe how bad I was~ok I could but didn't want to admit it. I have kept building up and for the last two weeks have completed the entire dvd. I was so thrilled the first time I completed it.
I do feel like I have more energy. I can see some changes in my arms already. Now I would like some abs like hers and a few other areas to become tone. So I plug on even when I don't feel like it. I am working toward a goal: better health.
