I went back to my first post this month to see what I was hoping to get out of this month because as the month moves forward it’s easy to lose track of my ultimate goals.
I am going to try a different exercise video every day this month either through You Tube or DVDs from the library. I’m hoping to make it a habit AND by trying different things find a few that I almost might enjoy 🙂
I’m proud to say that I accomplished this. I think once Gage starts school again and I can do this in the morning at the same time five days a week that the habit part will be easier, but I totally rocked finding different workouts I enjoyed. I think I had envisioned doing a hard core workout everyday without taking into account the fact that I am completely out of shape and overweight. So, I did modify, because I had to, and choose shorter and lower impact workouts. The good thing is that I found quite a few videos that were right at my activity level and fun.
I did decide after the first few workouts to only do YouTube videos since they were so easy to access on the TV. I love that Gage often joined me or watched me exercise. We talked about how I was trying to be healthier and it led to good lessons – for both of us! I found out that I really need to invest in a good sports bra. At the risk of sharing too much information, I want to be honest if you were going to try this yourself 😉 It was a good month and I have every intention of adding these workouts into my daily schedule. I found some short ones that make it impossible to use excuses.
I didn’t get to try the Pilates one that Carol recommended, but I promise I will!
So, here are my five favorites for the month. These are ones that are at my level right now and I plan on doing again. I’ve even subscribed to the channels for more of the same.
I’ve actually done this one a few times this month 🙂
Loved Lucy and will be trying more of her walking workouts.
Difficult but super fun!
I could do all of the moves and it got my heart rate up.
I’m surprised that there are two dance ones on the list, but this was fun.
