I just got the new Xbox Kinect and let me tell you seeing my 4 year old son running around like a loon and jumping all over the room gets me motivated to get up and act like a fool too. I got the dance game too and those harder dances are quite the workout. You can even set it to workout mode and it'll tell you how many calories your burning and how long your workout has been. I def recommend this system for anyone who loves games and has trouble getting of the couch. Motivation here I come!
I'm wondering if I'm overdoing it... The holidays always take up so much of your already sparse free time and I'm trying to workout every day this week which I've so far managed but the night before Thanksgiving is busy for me. I'm at work; I get off at 10; I need to debone two turkeys at Martha Stewart speed but as I only do this once a year I doubt that I'll get them done in a half hour and I still need to get rest so that I can be up by 8am for my 9am turbo kick. Should I just forget about my workout tonight or get a red bull and work all night?? Hmmm???
I make sure I clear all of my excuses out of the way long before I can start making them. For instance, I pack my gym clothes and put them in my car on Saturday morning for Monday after work. I also schedule time on my calendar for exercise. I am starting to get to the point where I look forward to getting out of work to go work out.
Unfortunately, I am one of those people who needs a goal to be motivated....right now, I am going to New York in 21 days.......after that I will have to use another goal to keep up the good work I've been doing....maybe Christmas an a new outfit. ha,ha,ha!
