DVD player not working, too humid to run?????

Wednesday, June 18, 2014

well, i was really about at my wits end emoticon .

i had planned on working out to a dvd work out, and darn, if the dvd player wasn't working! emoticon what am i gonna do? i looked outside and it looked nice emoticon , but it was WAY to humid, i knew that i couldn't run. i couldn't ask my hubby to look at the dvd player, he was sleeping emoticon, and we DO have a treadmill emoticon, but it is in my bedroom where the "bear" emoticon , was sleeping! lol!

what am i to do??? emoticon i was so set on being angry that i couldn't work out. emoticon , and saying, "well, it isn't MY fault, i TRIED to work out"

well, i just got done reading a quote from Zig Ziglar..."Most people who fail in their dream, fail not from lack of ability but from lack of commitment."

oops! don't i feel sheepish!



i have been doing these dvd work outs FOREVER, and i sometimes instruct fitness classes, can't "I" do my OWN work out? then, came more excuses... "i am sure i won't work out as hard", "can i come up with enough to keep the cardio going?" "will, i hae enough exerises to do with weights?" "will it really be as good as bob or jillian, or dovett? or any other dvd trainer?"

then, "am i really COMMITTED?"

so, i turned on my timer, put my earbuds in my ears, and cranked out my training motivational music, and went to work! i worked out for 35 minutes, and at the end i was dripping with "liquid awesomeness" (aka. sweat!), and i was huffing and puffing! now, was it as good as my dvds? or better than a run? well, perhaps not, but i DID work out, when before, i know i would have just threw in the towel, and not worked out, and then would have continued the downward spiral of sabotage, and have eaten WAY over my calorie count! emoticon i did go over... by 7 calories, but i didn't eat ALL of the milk duds like i wanted to!

it makes me feel good that i improvised and did SOME work out, made up or whatever. i was... i AM commited! emoticon
