In January I found myself not having exercised for at least 4 months. Even before that, it was few and far between. I knew part of living healthier would mean I that I needed to get my body moving.
It was winter, in Minnesota. A mild winter but still a little too chilly to go walking. I wasn’t going to join a gym because that just wasn’t in the budget. I had one exercise DVD and whatever Netflix had to offer. I decided to try out a 10 minute video on Netflix. I thought 10 minutes a day would be a good, slow start and it was.
The next couple of weeks I decided to go for 20 minutes and did my workout DVD with Denise Austin. I alternated cardio and weight lifting on the weekdays. I know she’s kind of old school, but she’s been with me through thick and thicker. I’ve been exercising to her videos since I got married 14 years ago. I don’t know why I always enjoyed exercising with her, maybe it was her big smile and encouraging words.
I knew I had to move past Denise this time. I knew that I couldn’t just stick with this DVD the whole time. My body would get used to it or I would get bored with it. I would need to switch it up.
See what I decided to switch to next week!
Weight last week: 167 lbs.
Weight this week: 166.5 lbs.
Total weight loss this year: 17.5 lbs.
Half a pound doesn’t seem like much but that’s 2 sticks of butter! I am excited that I am still losing. I’m also excited that it’s time to buy a new pair of jeans, because mine are just too big!
What is your favorite DVD to workout to?
