Note to self: Remember to mix it up

Tuesday, July 22, 2008

You know, there's lots of articles on SP about plateaus, boredom, and the need to mix up your exercise, for all sorts of reasons. I've read many of them, they're really good articles! And I kept thinking "oh, but I am!" Some days I walk (faster, slower, longer, shorter), and some days I do dance DVD's, and because those are different routines, I figure that automatically mixes things up. And I'm sure it does.

My best friend just sent me a new workout DVD; she's a long-time fitness instructor, and I really miss her classes. Holy cow! Not only did I sweat a whole lot more than I have in a long time, I had so much FUN! FUN FUN FUN!!! I can't wait to do a different combination of routines tomorrow! For weeks now, I've been dragging myself to the TV, picking one of the half-dozen or so DVD choices, and pushing myself through it. I worked harder today, and had way more fun doing it.

Yeah, ok, so when the article says to keep making exercise work, you need to find something you really love to do... maybe I should have paid closer attention.
