Well, today I decided to do something new that focused solely on me. I tried a new workout. I am fortunate to have co-workers who share healthy lifestyle tips and workout videos. I was able to borrow the first disc of the T25 workout series. The first video about speed had me feeling pretty uncoordinated. But I did it a few times and felt a bit better about myself, but still uncoordinated! I got to the point that I could at least finish the workout without pausing. The positive element of this video was that it went quickly. So after realizing just how out of shape I am, there was a sense of nervousness to move on to the second video – the total body circuit. Since I needed something new to do and needed to get some exercise. I decided my ’30 Days of New’ challenge was the perfect time to take this on. Three words: cardio, push-ups and planks! My side actually had a cramp at the end of the workout! While I felt more coordinated during this video, I also felt like a weakling. Push-ups aren’t my strong suit and there are quite a few of them – hard ones! I was not able to get through this without pausing for a few moments here and there. I do feel like this is an extremely good workout for only being 25 minutes. I will give it a try again to see if I can master it a bit better, but I’m not sure I’ll get to the point that I can do all those push-ups!
Since health is important to me I plan to do and try a few more health related things during my ’30 Days of New.’ (I see some juices coming up.) Do you have any recommendations for me?
