Ugh so I feel like such a loser. And not in a “biggest loser” kind of way. Here it is an extra week of the first round of 30 Day Shred. And I’m gonna keep it real–I’m not a happy camper. I’ve realized what my issue is: it’s not fun!! What attracted me to the 30 Day Shred was the efficiency of the workout–I mean who can beat stregth, cardio and abs in 20 minutes??? And it’s not a rinky dink workout either–my hair is drenched w sweat when I’m finished (thank goodness for wigs right?) But I don’t look forward to it. I don’t enjoy it. And honestly, I’ve quit several times on the workout. That’s something I wouldn’t do with Turbo Jam. Turbo Jam is fun for me and that’s what kept me doing it versus everything else. I like The Firm and the results i get, but I don’t enjoy doing it. And when it comes down to it, that’s what matters for me. So it’s time to re-evaluate the situation.
Here’s what my plan is…ok so I’m going to do my official end of phase 1 weigh in/measure/update this weekend. The good news is that I have seen results but not enough–and that’s mostly my fault for not sticking to my plan 100%. So we’re supposed to get our tax refund tomorrow (fingers crossed) and among the other things that I’ll be purchasing with my portion of the money will be some Turbo Kick Fan dvds. If you don’t know…those are the ones that come out every so often from Chalene Johnson. Turbo Kick is the original and then they came out with the infomercial for Turbo Jam. Turbo Kick workouts are about an hour long and you get 2 workouts per dvd. And they’re like $40 each. For more info go to www.turbokick.com Now I would definitely love it if they were on sale right now…but evenso I will be ordering 1 or 2 dvds this weekend to add to my regimen. And I will still do 30 Day Shred but will add it as more as a compliment to my cardio vs being my primary workout. Because for me, it has to be fun, I have to look forward to doing it and I have to enjoy doing it…not just enjoy that it’s over! So that’s the plan. I’m making out my workout schedule now. And I’m sure I’ll be seeing some great results because I’ll actually be doing it!!! Ha!
Honestly, right now I know that cardio is what I need more of. I am really wanting more clothes and the prospect of Spring being right around the corner is pushing me to get back on top of my game! (yeah it’s shallow things that motivate me the most sometimes!) Ross is having their dress week or dress days event, whatever it’s called, I’m gonna be copping a few spring dresses in probably a size 10 or 12. Or both…we’ll see. So let’s do the damn thing!!! Maybe I need to remind myself of my motto aka BeachBody’s motto: DECIDE.COMMIT.SUCCEED. damn straight!
