VHS still alive

Tuesday, February 12, 2013

Tonight I put in an old VHS(yes some of us still kept out VCR's) tape. It is full of workout shows recorded off the television called, the Fitness Zone. I completed one of the high intensity cardio episodes and let me tell you, it was tough. Very fast paced-lunges, squats, power squats. I loved it.

    We use our VHS as much as our DVD player. We have hundreds of movies and other programs we've taped over the years, and love to watch them again.

    Good for you. I actually had all of my VHS tapes and VCR until I had a yard sale last year and decided to declutter.

Snow Day = No work day = Great workout opportunity

Friday, February 08, 2013

I woke to a massive snowfall in Ontario this morning-cleaned about 3/4 foot of snow off my car, but there was no way I was going to make the usual 30 minute commute into work today. I was able to enjoy my workout in the morning instead of evening. I went outside a few hours later, cleaned about the same amount of snow off my car again as well as the sidewalks. Great workout opportunities today. Some may think it crazy to clear away snow when it is still snowing, but in my mind it is accomplishing two things - an extra workout, and I will have less heavier snow to clear off once this storm comes to an end. My legs are certainly feeling energized. It is a day like this I wish I had some snowshoes-now what a workout that would be.


My Energy

Friday, January 25, 2013

I was telling a friend, about the workout I had done last night. She told me she wished she had my energy to move forward to good health. I told her, it wasn't so much about the energy I had (I was tired after standing on my feet all day moving around already at work), but I knew I had the workout DVD's and have been avoiding the gym currently. I know 43 is just around the corner. I know what I want-to be fit and healthy, and sitting in my comfy chair in front of the tv for the last 20 of those 43 years got me where I am and isn't going to make it happen, but getting up and moving is another step closer to it. It is happening. It isn't in the distance. Every night I do a cool down routine, and one of the stretches takes balance, which mine wasn't good. Since I have started, I have seen a difference in my co-ordination. After I complete the workouts my energy level is up. I like that. And so, I will keep moving forward and hope my friend will also stop wishing about what she wants, and also moves forward to get what she wants.

    I have made so many improvements health wise with working out. I have MS, so it's been a tough journey.

    As we know there is no magic pill to give us energy. But good for you at putting your health as a priority and turning 43 will feel so good!!

The workout is done

Friday, January 25, 2013

Tonight consisted of the Biggest Loser walk 1 and 3. I began walk 1 but kept getting interrupted. I stopped having completed 1/4 of it, and came back to it later in the evening, beginning from the beginning. I was tired by then, but just knew I had to do it, or tomorrow I might not do it. Walk 3 is more of jogging and jumping jacks and sprints in place. I didnt want to make a lot of noise, so I actually completed it with my shoes off. I still worked up a good sweat. I think I will sleep quite well this evening.

Feeling proud

Thursday, January 24, 2013

I am feeling pretty darn good-tired but good. I have been consistent with my workout program for almost two weeks. I would feel myself sinking down on the comfy chair in front of the tv after work, and know I had a short work out waiting for me, got up to get it done. Tonight I did walk #4 of the Biggest Loser power walk Dvd, then I added 10 minutes of high burn cardio from the Biggest loser 2 workout.Short workouts, but the last one had me really sweating. Thanks trainer Kim. I am actually looking forward to even tomorrow nights schedule which involves running and sprints. woooooooohooooooooo. I haven't stepped on a scale yet, but I can feel a difference. Maybe it is in my mind at the moment,but that is enough to keep me motivated and moving forward.
