Workin' It Out

Well, I kept my promise.  I worked out today.  In the motivating spirit of Biggest Loser I did my Jillian Michaels work-out DVD and ran up and down my stairs for 10 minutes.  This brings my total work-out time for the day to an earth shattering 35 minutes.  Does anyone else do work-out DVDs?  I know that the trainers are trying to motivate me, the slob, on the other side of the TV but does Jillian have to be so perky?  I mean, she was hi fiving, bouncing, and flirting with her co-exercisers (men and women both so no favoritism was shown ;).  In the meantime, I was sweating, panting, and stumbling around my living room while my husband, daughter, and dogs all looked on with a mixture of bemusement and pity.  This was not always this hard!

I suppose, even though short and somewhat pathetic, the end result was still achieved.  I worked out, I sweated, and I ended up shaky and wanting to vomit at the end.  And just to clarify, I am in no way promoting the Jillian Michaels work-out as the be all end all.  What I am saying is that I am, terribly and unquestionably, out of shape.

Also, I know the stupid comments thing still doesn't work.  I'm trying to fix it but I am so very un-tech savvy.

Yay! Your comments work now! :) I'm a huge Jillian Michaels fan too! I have "The Shred" dvd. Is that what you have? Although to be perfectly honest, I haven't worked out period in several weeks. I really need to get on that...

No, I haven't tried that one but it sounds like it would be a good one. I have "Maximize - Back in Action" And maybe you haven't worked out in a few weeks but by that picture of you and your sweet little girl you recently posted no one would ever know it! Working out with a little one is tough!

Go easy on yourself Mom! If you have a little one you will need a little padding to keep you going - especially if you are nursing. I don't know if this is a national program but, our community has a Stroller Strides program where you actually work out with your baby in the stroller. Wish they had it when my kids were litte! =) Just a thot...

Thank you all so much for stopping by and for the encouragement! Paula, I'll definitely have to try out the stroller exercise class they offer once a week at my gym . . . if I can get us there in time ;) Jen I'm sure chasing after your kids can be a workout. Minky so glad I inspired you! It makes working out easier when you know that someone else is out there paying attention or going through the same thing.
