So the past 3 days I have exercised....I have tried to get it done soon after I get up, no matter what time that is. I have found as I said in a previous entry that I can't do it on an empty stomach...so the soonest I workout is about 30 minutes to an hour after I wake up. Today I thought I would browse through my collection of Exercise tapes and DVD's. I sure do have quite a collection of them...from Sweating to the oldies to pilates, yoga, WATP, and I even have the Carmen Electra strip exercise DVD. YIKES!! I think I watched it once but never have tried it........(and no that isn't the one I chose today..LOL)
I found a Leslie Sansone (the WATP creator), Walking DVD that is a fast 4 miles. It includes some jogging in place and interval training. I wasn't sure how much I could do but I thought..."hey try it out and stop when you feel it is too hard, but do your best"
Guess what? I completed the whole video and I even did the jogging parts!! I was so happy to know I could complete this workout. Sure I didn't push too hard doing the movements I kept them a bit lighter but my goal was to get through the whole thing and I reached that goal.
In the intro to this DVD she states that to really bump up weight loss and calorie burn to do a 10 day challenge.....which means if you do this DVD 10 days in a row you will see results. So I am challenging myself to do this for 10 days straight. I am going to measure myself today and post those here and then in 10 days I will compare the figures to see if it worked.
So here goes...1 day down 9 to go!! I can do this, perhaps if I take this 10 days at a time I will start a streak that can last a lifetime.
