A Woman Obsessed...

Wednesday, November 14, 2012

Ok, so I have a very strange problem. When I discover something, I become obsessed with reading all I can find about it, to see how effective it is. Case in point- I found a Kettlebell set on clearance at Target for $18.00 (normally $60.00). I almost did not buy it, but my hubby said that it was a good deal and to get it. I purchased it. Since buying it, it has sat in my kitchen. In the meantime, I have been researching to find out how effective Kettlebell workouts are. This is not the first time I have done this- Zumba, elliptical, and belly dance have all suffered the same level of research obsession.

I don't know why I do this! I am obsessed with something enough to research it, but when it comes time to act, I fizzle out. Frustrating!

    I understand the desire to investigate and know about it. Wanting to thoroughly investigate it can lead to inaction, as you are seeing.

    Try Coach Nicole's intro to kettle bell workout I think she has a short video on Spark.

    Don't over-think it. Just do it. With kettle bells, it is a good idea to do it properly but with other things--Just go for it! Even a small workout adds up. 10 min

    I do this ALL the time! Trying to learn to take that next step to put it into action. The research is a good thing though, at least you'll have all the knowledge to use one day.

    Sounds like most of us - good intentions but don't follow through. I have things still in the package - never used as well.

    Off the top of my head here are things I have purchased (many impulsively, a few were researched):

    Round Yoga Mat (used mostly in the summer outdoors)
    Weighted Hula Hoop (occasionally used while watching TV)
    Weighted 20 lb vest (used occasionally while walking)
    Elliptical Machine (never used - kids use it mostly. I go to the gym)
    Various hand weights (never used anymore - i go to the gym)
    Punching/kicking stand (rarely used)
    Several size of exercise balls (rarely used)
    Floor lever balancing beam and gymnastics mat (used by my daughter when she did gymnastics - no more)
    Zumba DVDs (rarely used anymore)
    Husband's inline skates (I used to use occasionally, but have not used them in years (decades maybe!)

    I'm sure there is more. This is just off the top of my head.

    Sigh...Maybe I need to have a garage sale...
