Jane Fonda and me...

Tuesday, June 18, 2013

...yeah we go way back. Let me explain:

Years ago, when Jane Fonda came out with one of her first exercise tape...I bought it, new workout clothes, shoes, the whole package. I was going to exercise with Jane Fonda!

So okay, pop in the tape, and for about 3 minutes into it, I plopped down on the couch, panting and sweating like a hog...still watching Jane. 3 minutes later...she claps her hands and says..." that we're warmed up, let's exercise!"

That was it for me, I never played the tape or wore the workout clothes again. I was mortified, humiliated and crushed...I mean, I couldn't even get through the warm-up moves?? And to top it off, I weighed a mere 118 pounds at that time!!

I bring the above up because today I saw the video 10-Minute Cardio Kickboxing Workout with Coach Nicole. Okay...after reading the comments and sitting through the 10 minutes to see what the workout entailed...I jumped in to give it a shot.

I lasted all of 2 minutes into excuse, but I'm 70 pounds overweight, old and definitely wayyyy out of shape. It reminded me back when I wanted to work-out with Jane Fonda.

Difference here is, tomorrow I'm giong to do this workout again...go for 3 minutes and so on each day until I reach the 10 minutes (or die trying) and hope to continue doing it every day as a ritual. I WILL DO IT!

    Thank you all for kind comments and encouragement. Yes, I do have Leslie Sanone's videos...and I do walk anywhere from 30-60 minutes a day. I also ride stationary bike 30 minutes a day (all new in last 2-3 weeks). I also fool around with the exercise I'm getting the hang of it slow but sure. So happy I found (stumbled upon it looking for a recipe.) I have to literally push myself away from computer to exercise because I'm so enjoying reading, reading and reading more on the SparkPeople pages. Love finding new recipes too! Thank you again for the support.

    I bought the Jane Fonda book and exercised to that (before VHS). I have been doing Coach Nicole's DVD's and like them. Have you ever tried Leslie Sansone "Walk at Home" DVD's? They are doable for most anyone with just four different moves. I was 70 pounds overweight and I did those DVD's most days of the week. You can do this.
