The more I workout, the more I LOVE IT!!!
Seriously, so often someone will start working out & then find themselves quitting after a little while. There are so many reasons I'm sure. -They don't carve the time out of their schedule to make it happen. -The program they chose isn't the right one for them. -They don't schedule their workouts ahead of time. This last one is different from the first one about carving out time for the workout. Making sure you have a scheduled plan of workouts for the week or even month is REALLY important!
I didn't realize this until I started the Beachbody workouts.
I got a schedule with each of the workouts I have & while I certainly don't need to stick with them, and I didn't at first with P90X, I realized maybe they knew what they were talking about!
I am working right now on my 3rd round of ChaLEAN Extreme. The workouts are really awesome. She knows what she is doing. She does the TurboFire workouts too & they are my FAVORITE cardio workouts to be sure.
Recently, if you have been keeping up with my blog, you know I have a new addition to my weights. I added 20lb weights & I am THRILLED to say I am using them during this program. Right now they are more for lower body exercises but I know eventually I will be able to get them into the upper body too.
I am so happy to say that after many years I have found the workouts that work for me. Including running & biking. Along with Beachbody workouts like TurboFire, ChaLEAN Extreme & P90X I have invested in Bob Harpers workouts. His InsideOut workout DVD's are INTENSE & I use them between the longer programs I do. Keeps me shaking things up with my workouts & keeps my body guessing what's coming next.
I am seeing some great results. Great definition in my arms & legs. I still have areas I want to work on but I know I will get there. It hasn't been over night & I have been working really hard at it for over 7 years!
I feel great. That's the idea right? I want to be able to keep up. I want my kids to grow up & know exercise should be an every day thing & not a chore. There are other options than going to the gym. So many people I have talked to get memberships & don't end up seeing the year through. It can be discouraging. The right mind-set & being determined to make a difference really does help!!
Have you found an exercise that works for you? How do you challenge yourself?
Be Blessed & Live Healthy!!
