Re-Discovering An Old Favorite

Tuesday, June 04, 2013

Many years ago, about four I think, I bought a couple of Biggest Loser workout videos. One is a Cardio and the other is Yoga. They are both great but I had not used them in several years. I pulled out my yoga video since today is a strength training day and I am so glad I did. I had forgotten how tough those workouts could be! My arms and legs were shaking and I am sweating! I did two workouts for a total of 35 minutes and I can already feel that I am going to be sore this afternoon. This video is definitely staying out to be added a few times a week, maybe as an evening workout. I also have a Jillian Michaels Yoga Meltdown video that is pretty tough.

While I was going through my video cabinet to find the video I wanted, I also found a couple of Dancing with the Stars workout videos. I think I only used them once or twice but since I did not know the moves I wasn't getting much of a workout. These may be great afternoon or weekend workouts with my girls. I think they would love them and I can always jump on the treadmill afterward if I am not getting enough of a workout. I may be able to piece together enough between what I have and what I can get on SparkPeople and other places online that I may not have to buy anything. I just need to push myself to work hard and give every workout my all.

Yesterday, I was asked what my plan was when the blues come after me. This is something that I really struggle with. It is so easy to just lay in bed and not exercise which often leads to a downward spiral of eating junk and not taking care of myself. My blues plan is to exercise. When I exercise I feel better, even if it is just going for a walk. So when I want to lay in bed and sleep, I will make myself get up and do my planned workout. Once I get started I will feel better. My blues plan for eating is to log everything before I eat it. It will motivate me to eat healthier because I will see the calories and fat before I put it in my mouth. Although I have a weekly plan, I am going to really focus on one day at a time. Each day focusing only on what I am doing that day. Follow the exercise plan and menu that I have for that day and not worry about what will happen tomorrow.

    Great Plan!! I tried a couple Just Dance videos and loved them. Not sure I would do good with Dancing with the Stars. Way different dances. Glad you found some videos and know where SP has them online and others online. Keep up the good work!

    I am so glad you have made a plan for the Blues.. and a plan to dance with your girls..

    I too feel better even If it is a short walk.. I feel so much more focused when I exercise. it kind of clears the fog..

    living today is the best it is all we really have.. tomorrow is never promised and yesterday is gone. Today is right now.. and that is the best place to be .
