Routines are not for me.

Wednesday, July 28, 2010

Today I woke up feeling rejuvenated once again because I have been having some minor set backs. Last night was my first time trying out kickboxing since it was something I've been wanting to do for a while now. When I got home last night I contemplated on doing any type of working out because I was so tired, but sometimes I think feeling tired is all in my head. So I got home and turned to my favorite FITTV channel and found that a kickboxing program (i forgot the instructors name ) was about to come on. I pushed myself to go and get my workout clothes on and get to work. So while I was panting and sweating like a pig and my daughter laughing at me because I guess I was looking like I was about to pass out. It just made me work harder. I know every time I talk about my workouts it is always something new. I don't like the same routine of exercise. I mostly do cardio so anything I can find that will burn fat I do it.

I started with the WIIFit then went on to WIIFit plus. Got bored

Started walking 1-3 miles then it progressed to a walk/run after I got my Nike + which became my automatic friend for life. Completed a 10mile and would love to do it again. Now I walk/run a least 3 - 5 miles Sat and Sun.

Bought Leslie Sanone walk DVD - Still like it very much and do it from time to time. Her voice just makes me crazy after awhile. LOL

Watch FITTV channel and started doing Gilad body sculpting and other cardio workouts.

P90X - It's sad to say I tried it its a great program but not for me at this time.
but I will be back.

Bought the Biggest Loser DVD and loved it great cardio workout and lost 4 pounds within 3 weeks. So that's a keeper for sure.

So I have my favorites but I switch it up because I can't keep hearing the same voices over and over again saying the same thing and I get bored too fast. I will always stick to my walk/runs not matter what because I love to be outdoors and it give me the feeling of such greater strength and wellness and that's what I need. I plan out my workouts during the week but if I feel like doing something else I will do it.

Have a great day my sparky friends : )

    Don't you love your kids laughing at you as you work out? Mine does that to me. Not funny! You sound a lot like me. You and I are a lot a like. I feel the same about routines. I couldn't do step aerobics at my gym..I couldn't learn the steps. You seem like you just get bored with doing the same thing over and over again. You'd be a trainers dream..a good trainer that is.

    Sounds like you are getting the game plan together. I too do FitTv workouts & switch up between my DVDs & what I record on my sons DirectTv DVR. He hates when I take over his tv. lol

    We must develop our plans & execute them. There will be set backs but we already know what to do. . .Get back up again . .

    God bless!

    WooHoo!!! I think boredom makes us backslide. One of my team members sent me a mixer because she said I keep mixing things up. I'm all for variety because it's the spice of life. Keep it up; you're doing a great job.

    I feel the same way. After watching a video once or twice, I'm so done with it. I hate knowing what comes next. I'm more of a spontaneous kinda gal. I love swimming laps 3 days a week during the summer months, even if it is the same thing over and over, I always see some improvements in my form, breathing or distance. I run a couple of times a week, less distance now, but I'm teaching the puppy to run and he's doing great. Dixie got a new bike for her birthday so it looks like Saturday maybe a scorcher, but we'll be on the trail!

    I also am trying the P90X, but I don't have all the videos. It's ok, I hated the Yoga with a passion and probably will never do it again - it was just beyond boring and not challenging at all to me. Tried Plyometrics yesterday and I think I'd like to be able to get through the entire thing like the people in the video - I don't know if it's just to prove a point or what. Did it with friends for the first time yesterday and that was very motivating - trying to keep going more than the person next to me. No, really I'm not competetive at all....LOL

    It's highly suggested that you should always switch up your workout anyway because your body adapts to repetitive activities so what your doing is a great thing for your body.

    Great blog. I might at the biggest loser to my collection. I do the P90X, it's hard but worth it. I really like cardioX. If you haven't tried that one, give that one a try, it's not as hard as the other P90X workouts. I know plyo is pretty challenging and core synergy is ridiculous. I did it once (half of it anyway) and haven't looked back .. lol.

    Good luck and keep striving for that goal.
