Being a former college athlete, I know I can do it. I just need to find my "athlete" again. I know that she will re-surface over time, but for now I just need to focus on moving. I loathe the gym lately, as I get sick every single time. So, I printed off my 66 day calendar and busted out some old "Firm" videos to do at home. They are effective and I can do them without having to interact with anyone, which I like. For an hour each day, it's MY time.
Saturday, I did "Complete Aerobics and Weight Training". Man, I'd forgotten how tough this one is, but boy does it work. The time flies by, which is a good thing. I'm not counting the minutes. I don't have the old school "fanny lifter" (gotta love 90's terminology), so I just use my old step.
Yesterday, I went on a walk downtown with my husband. Anytime I can get him moving, it's a good thing. We went right at sunset and then stopped for some pizza, which was counter-productive, but that's ok. We went together and I was able to get pics of the gorgeous sunset. Sometimes, life is about little moments. It was better than sitting on the couch, watching football.
Today, I went back to the Firm. I did all three sections of Time Crunch Cardio. The first two were excellent. They combined cardio with weights. The last section was strictly a cardio workout. It was dance, which aggravated my knee since I'm on carpet. Plus, it was so repetitive and boring. I'm normally a fan of Allie's, but man...this one was like pulling teeth. I cut off the last few minutes simply because I was so bored. Moving forward, I'll just do the first two and then walk or something. Zzzzzz....
Have you ever tried the Firm? What's your favorite workout from them?
