It is cold outside! Seriously, freezing…So I decided to exercise by the fire this evening. I exercise regularly, and I think it’s fun to change things up from time to time. After having bronchitis for a few weeks this month, I am finally feeling better. I’ve been on my recumbent bike and hit the treadmill, but I’d like to add some variety to the rotation so I’m trying a couple exercise videos.
I’ve heard a lot about Jillian Michaels’ 30-Day Shred, and when my friend mentioned that she received it for Christmas, I went out and bought it too. We started it together yesterday, and while I wasn’t sure I could do it, I’m glad I did.
(Note to Jillian: I do not weigh 400 pounds, but I was unsuccessful in my attempt to do jumping jacks so I did Richard Simmons’ adaptation of a jumping jack..just saying. You said to look elsewhere, and I did. hehe)
It was not easy, but it was not impossible. I did everything that Jillian said to do, and I’ll do it again tonight. I’m going to do it for a total of 30 days then do an assessment. I’m sure the results will be great because I can feel it today.
Another friend came over today after work, and we ‘partied off the pounds’ with Richard Simmons. What can I say? I love that man, and I believe that he truly wants me to succeed. And while his video was on, I forgot that I was exercising. Yay!
So…in addition to my regular trips the the gym and cardio at home, I’m going to add some new and exciting videos to my exercise routine. I hope to see positive results.
Do you use exercise videos? If so, do you have a favorite video? What do you do when you want to change your workout routine?
