But I did the kickboxing workout anyway. Or at least my version of it.
Ms. Smarmy (one of my alter egos) smugly told me that I couldn't do it.
Since I put her in the same category of kickboxing, I knew I had to at least make a showing of it.
So click on the video and get started.
Sure enough, there's my Torture Coach..........Nicole. I might have known she would be doing the kickboxing thing.
So at the beginning, I am doing exceedingly well with my marching in place and then doing that little dip thing and the upper cut at the same time. I'm cool. I'm really into this one.
Then it all changes. She wants me to do some side thing and punch and move my feet and bend the knees.................I begin to lose it.
But I don't quit!
We move on to a different thing that I seem to remember her doing jumping jacks and kicking or something like that. I try to do a jumping jack, and manage two of them. Admittedly, not quite as co-ordinated as Ms. Torture seems to do, but I did get in TWO of them. I switch to the jump rope thing just to keep my body in movement.
HA! I KNEW she could see me through the screen!!! She starts doing her version of jump rope, being a copy cat. Sure sure. Hers look a bit more professional, but if she is COPYING ME, for Pete's sake, shouldn't she at least be doing it MY way???
Then she comes up with this idea of round house kicking. Right. I backed up the video three times and still couldn't figure that one out.
By now, dear reader, I am looking like a frantic frog in a blender. My cat hisses and leaves the room.
Nicole is doing something with her legs, so I do something with my legs too.
My workout is a bit like a scarecrow hooked up to electric shock therapy.
But I keep moving. Give me credit for that, at least!!
I do one really good kick to Ms. Smarmy's face. SHE leaves the room too, all in a huff. Good riddance.
Ah, here it comes. The stretch time. I LIKE stretch time!! I joyfully do my stretches, count for my ten minute workout from hell, and am off to the rest of my day.
