Intense and Incredible


Monday, July 01, 2013

I am proud of myself today...today I decided to stop making excuses and workout. I found a kickboxing workout here and thought I'd give it a try.

I have a pretty sedentary lifestyle so I knew it would be a challenge. I started it and got into it thinking that it was easier than I thought it would be....and then....it kicked up a lot. Mind you, I am not the most coordinated person...gravity just has this love for me that way...always wanting to pull me in closer. BUT! I did not let that stop me from pushing myself to finish the workout. I started mixing up the steps and thought well at least I'm trying---but NO! That wasn't good enough for me. I stopped the video and went back and watched the steps I was missing, paused the video and walked out all the steps until I could do it at a quicker pace so I could keep up with the video.

It. Was. IN-tense. I was motivated to see myself succeed and see the end of the whole workout and I can gladly say I did! Yes, it took a while to catch my breath. Yes, sweat poured down my face like an ice cream cone dripping in 111 degree heat, but YES, I DID finish!

The sweat was gross like I knew it would be, but it's easy to wash off. My breathing was heavy, but eventually I caught my breath. I was a little tired, but deep inside skinny me was applauding my accomplishment and encouraging me to get up and start again tomorrow. I didn't feel like I wasted time. I didn't slip to floor and think I was going to die for working out....I felt amazing and free. I don't know why I never started sooner! SHAME!

    Congrats on your workout! It is an amazing feeling once you realize that it can be fun. I used to be very sedentary too, but have changed that a lot since being on Sparkpeople. If you like kickboxing, you might like Turbo Jam. Give it a try, I love it!
