I am having real problems getting to the gym, not because I don’t want to go- I actually do want to go exercise. The problem lies is the WHEN to go. Between the baby’s naps and mealtimes for all 3 kids, let alone the taxiing of said children to various places, there just seems NOT to be enough time in the day. Wah wah, huh?
Anyhoo, I have always been a fan of the hit show “The Biggest Loser”. I love watching everyone work hard and turn their bodies into well-oiled machines. Of course, I usually watched the show while eating chips and salsa or ice cream, or both. And the trainers, man oh man, their bodies are awesome.
Since I’m not getting into the gym like I want to and since I would like to at least attempt exercising again, I checked out Amazon for reviews on various exercise DVD’s. I ran across this one, read the reviews, saw that it was on sale, and I bought it.
I have “done” the DVD the last three mornings (I am a morning exerciser- if it doesn’t get done before noon, then it most likely won’t be done at all). I very much like the DVD and right now, my legs are feeling sore, sore, sore. The DVD has 4 workouts- you are supposed to do Workouts #1 and #3 for six days in a row, alternating between the two, for three weeks. Then you switch to workouts #2 and #4 for weeks 4-6, again exercising 6 days a week, alternating between the two.
Bob Harper is the trainer on this one and he definitely is easy on the eyes. Contestants from Seasons 1 & 2 make up the class. The music isn’t that great, though. And a lot of times, what Bob is telling you to do and the counting he does just doesn’t match the music. Or, maybe I should say that the music doesn’t match what Bob is saying. It can be a little confusing. I just ignore the music and do the exercises at my own pace, which right now, is as slow as a turtle! I hope to speed it up in the next few weeks.
I expect the exercises to become easier as I exercise longer and longer.
One baby step at a time.
