I don't like being tied into a specific workout
Tuesday, October 27, 2009
While I am huge Turbo Jam/Turbo Kick fan, and that is my workout of choice, I have to keep some flexibility on a daily basis and can't lock myself into any one program. Having fibromyalgia means that some days, I can barely function - especially when the weather changes.
Yep, that's right! I have become a human barometer. This was NOT by choice - I live in a wild climate (central Alaska) where the weather can easily change 50 - 60 degrees in a 24 hr time frame. I have been very successful lately in managing my fibro, but it takes something as small as snow to throw a wrench into my plans.
We finally got snow here yesterday, and boy, do I feel it! I am achy from head-to-toe and so exhausted I stumbled through my workday yesterday. Today isn't shaping up to be much better, but this is the hand I've been dealt and sometimes I just need to "cowgirl up".
I wasn't up to a strenuous workout last night, so I skipped my much-beloved Turbo and pulled out my old T-Tapp workout and did their Basic. It's a nice, short workout that really helps burn the fat (www.t-tapp.com) and I had been thinking that I needed to start Tapping again anyway. When I first discovered T-Tapp, I lost a lot of inches very quickly; but the fibro reared it's ugly head and it took me awhile to rebuild my fitness level enough to T-Tapp without it sending me into a full fibro flare.
My workout goals right now are quite simple - I want to do a minimum of T-Tapp's Basic workout every day, no matter what, and I'll do Turbo on the days I can. (Okay, whining here, so feel free to ignore this part - it is SO frustrating to have the mental desire to workout, only to have your body tell you NO. Whine over - sorry)
I know I'm ending the post abruptly, but I just don't have anything else to say right now.
