How has my fitness Journey been so far?

Monday, November 12, 2012

In SparkCoach I was asked the question about my fitness journey so far. It has been interesting to say the least. I am easily bored, so I when a routine bored me I had to find one that didn't. I left out alot in the narrative below but for the most part that is the story. I have even thought of sharing this new found love of the workout with others and will eventually look into become a trainer.

My fitness journey has been a trip through the looking glass. I started this year, w/the do at least 10 min thing and then I went on to different exercise route. I had Slim in 6 and I did that for a month and got bored. I started jazzercise "Burlesque" and started first w/the short 20 min routine then got into the full 45 min and that is when the short routines stopped. I went to Hip Hop Abs and that kept me hopping for a while. I forgot how much I loved that and then added more to it so I could keep myself active. I was getting up at 4:30 but I knew if I wanted to do a 50min routine I would have to get up at 4AM. I did and when I don't oversleep I do. I walk my dogs then I work out. One of my dogs goes downstairs and the other just goes back into the bedroom. It is almost like "OMG she is at it again!! I am not going to stay in here she might kick me or something!"

I am now doing RevAbs and this is a seriously tough workout. I am doing some modified and some regular moves. The main thing is that I am not quitting. I was in the "Cobra" this morning and the last round I was struggling. I dropped my arms back to the modified and hung in there.

I am looking at trying some other workouts. I occasionally do a Tiffany Roth workout from YouTube, or just a series of movements from something that I have downloaded. I can do this now since I have worked out hard enough prior to NOW!! I want to try Tai Chi but the routine I want to try is not in my price range right now. I have to wait but I hope to get it next year. My husband may even join me for this one.

    maybe I just need to keep trying different things because so far the DVD and working out in my livingroom are just not my thing. the Burlesque sounds interesting though. :)

    Knowing you're easily bored with a routine is half the battle sometimes. Occasionally, I have to remember that I need to change up the routine, because I'm very much a creature of habit. I've been doing 30-Day Shred for almost 2 years now, a couple times a week, and I tend to delay going to Level 2, which makes the body more efficient at doing the workout (and not burning enough calories), and often leads me to the path of injuries. Thanks for the reminder to change it up every other month. :-D
