Words are nothing but

Wednesday, January 02, 2013

Along with you, I have many things I'd like to see change before the end of 2013. My dreams and goals stay the same from year to year - I know them so well that the list that used to be taped to the bathroom mirror is ragged, curled, and water-stained; at least I think it is water.

Truly, I wish my more intransigent nature would emerge with the force of a charging lion. I know I have an obstinate side to me - just ask my husband who swears there is no one on the planet as stubborn as I am. How I want to channel that determination to propel me to a new place called maintenance. But until I give up what is fast becoming my favorite pasttime, it won't happen.

I have lots of home fitness dvd programs. Lots. At least over half of the BeachBody line.
P90X - of which I completed
Insanity Asylum
Turbo Fire
ChaLean Extreme
Turbo Jam
Hip Hop Abs
Les Mills Pump

Then I have some stragglers. . . .
TapouT XT
Metamorphosis by Tracy
The Firm Ultimate Fat Burning
Tae Bo Amped
Zumba Fitness
Jackie Warner

What started this crazy collection was a gift of 30 day shred by my daughter.
Jillian Michaels - 30 Day Shred
Jillian Michaels - Ripped in 30

I know I have others, but these come to mind. So,,,,,,,,,my favorite thing to do is to watch the infomercials for fitness dvd programs. I'm not into the equipment like Total Gym due to space limitations, but I can watch an Insanity promo hour after hour.

Making a deliberate choice, I will get away from the computer and tv and be a PARTICIPANT. I will work and gasp for air and be wringing wet but I will do it.

But until then......in the words of Norman Vincent Peale, "throw your heart over the bar and your body will follow."

I'll fake it til I make it.
I'll be enthusiastic because nothing great is ever achieved without enthusiasm.

    I have to honestly say that I don't have a single workout DVD. I know that I had VHS workout videos, but I threw them all away when I moved 5 years ago. I guess I've never had the need to use them. I have a health club membership and would rather to there to work out than do it at home.

    I love the NVP quote - "throw your heart over the bar and your body will follow." I think I'll use that for my check-in tomorrow!
