Forget me Not

I have not forgotten you, I promise.  And I have not forgotten to keep up my daily exercise – nay, it is what keeps me sane.  The ADHD demons kick in hard when I’m going to school for 8 hours (usually I get antsy in the first 10 minutes of sitting down).  Even though I’ve scaled back on how long I work out (I never thought a 20-30 minute workout even counted before), getting that morning sweat sheen is now imperative.  I’ve also never been a morning gym person, but alas, getting up early to take care of the puppy, then workout then school is the only thing that works.  If I wait until I get home I have to wait two hours more so I can entertain dear doggie and by that time I’m beat and my workout probably won’t happen. This won’t last forever, but until I finish school I’m left to 6:30am workouts and 10pm crash times.

With the limited time allowances what have I been doing? I got a subscription to Gaia.com and I’ve been doing either the 20-30 min The FIRM workouts (with light weights) or a Mari Windsor Pilates mat workout or any 30 minute “sculpt and tone” workout.  Doesn’t sound like me at all huh? I’ve never liked classes or aerobics or other people.  But I have time constraints and I find I’m more motivated to push myself if I’m watching the effort that the leader is putting in.  So far so good.  I would have laughed at those FIRM workouts before but guys, some days I’m really sore, or I’m puffing 10 minutes in. On Saturdays and Sundays I also get an hour on the elliptical in if I can.  But for now this is what I can do and I’m doing it.  its not at all as athletic or hard core as I feel like i should be working out, but other things have taken priority and I have to do the best i can.  I’m not a sponsored athlete (YET, wouldn’t it be great if I became amazing at something at 40?! maybe that should be my goal.  I have 5 1/2 years) so I have to focus on finishing school, getting a job that supports my family, taking care of my loved ones.  And working out IS a priority, its just not at the top anymore like it was when I was in between dance contracts.  Evolution is hard some times, to change from one season of my life to the next has never been seamless so I shouldn’t expect it.

Anyone have quick and dirty workout suggestions?! I’ll take em’ all!
