Changing It Up

Wednesday, September 28, 2011

I read Coach Nicole's article on changing up her routines, and why people do or don't change it up. Some people change it up every few weeks, some people's stay in their comfort zone, and some people vary after lengths of time, by season, or just for the sake of variety.

I realized that for me, what works is not necessarily changing it up all the way - I will never be a runner! - but to make my workout my own. Now, that seems a little stubborn, or if I'm feeling generous, it's independent.

i like Walk Away the Pounds - I like the movements, the low impactness of it. It doesn't leave me sore like being on the elliptical and I despise the treadmill. I did TaeBo for awhile too. I liked that one as well. The pace and how strong and confident I felt was awesome. As for recreational exercise, I love dance. I would love to learn ballroom dancing! In the meantime, it's bellydance.

So now, I can get my own music, with my own tempos, lyrics, and rhythms, and put together my own ITunes workout program. Need variation? Set it random and you never know where you're starting. It is enough sameness for comfort, but enough difference for challenge.

Confident, comfortable, independent. Oh yeah. :)
