I’m ready to Bodyrock!
Before this Bodyrock workout
After the workout….
A few conclusions:
1. I am totally turned onto Bodyrock.tv. All the instructors bodies are amazing and I like the challenge that the HIIT style workout gives me. I haven’t worked out in that capacity in a while. Yes to under 20 minute sweat-fests.
2. My abs are pretty bangin’ for all the worry I’ve lent them. Not much holiday damage there contrary to the amount of chocolate and jelly beans I remember consuming…
3. I need a tan. I am a pasty monster. I am not a fan of tanning because I like my skin and I know I look younger then my actual age – I contribute this to low sun exposure, pretty good diet, and genetics. I’m afraid if I tan I’ll shrink up and wrinkle like a raisin. However I know I’d look better with a healthy glow… sunless lotions? What are your thoughts
4. I like the way my body has shaped up EXCEPT wtf with my legs? I know they’re muscular and that’s why they’re big but they don’t look toned, they just look…there. I want to shrink them up and tone them a bit. Thoughts? Ideas?
I loved the workout and it’s challenging to me right now especially since I haven’t been doing things like burpees, mountain climbers and pushing my fitness in that way. I like how I feel afterwards, like I utilized my time well and when I’m feeling my energy flagging I just remind myself how short the workout actually is. However I feel like I should workout again or, more specifically, do that 12 minute workout again. I probably would have except I’m really saving up my energy for classes tonight. I want to stay on the conservative side, energy wise. I know it’s been a while since I’ve had dance classes and I know myself well enough to realize that the classes probably won’t be my best work since I’m just jumping back in. I’m hard on myself, naturally, so I’m trying to give me all the benefit of energy and enthusiasm as I can. It’s an important skill I’ve picked up in this difficult career path filled with constant change, rejection and requiring resiliency – I give myself the benefit of the doubt, every opportunity to succeed and feel good. I think this is a really invaluable practice that benefits everyone, not just in my own career path. You have to be your own best friend, no matter how many best friends you have outside of yourself, or lovers, or family – you have to be the biggest fan of you. Remember you always sleep with yourself, no matter where you are.
Okay, enough of that for now. Wish me luck! and fill me in on your workouts and New Years resolutions and stuff!
