When you haven’t done something in quite some time, it’s stupid to throw yourself overboard.
And that’s where i make a boating pun when this has nothing to do with boating of any kind. Dr. J and I are trying to keep each other in check. We’re trying to make sure we keep our goals in our hearts and get our bodies and minds working. I promised to start exercising again in earnest, which means actually exercising. I cancelled my gym membership. Yep, you heard me, I cancelled it. I hadn’t gone in over six months, so I found it to be worthless to me and beneficial to them.
I have Zumba Core Fitness and some exercise thing I downloaded for the xBox 360. I originally planned to do a Zumba warm-up, medium intensity, and cool down and go about my way. I also planned to do this right when I got home, however, it was such a beautiful day, I decided to sit out on the front steps and write. Then I made something to eat and had dinner.
However, I did get 1800 words written today!
Instead, I ended up doing a Zumba warm-up, then I did the yoga routine on the other program. I felt pretty good, so I continued with some so-called boxing, which turned into doing the box smashing thing, and then for some stupid idea I decided to do the fitness routine I’d put together when I first used the program.
I hate lunges. I can do side lunges all day long, but I hate normal lunges. They hurt, they do nothing for me (personal opinion – I’m sure they do, I just hate them that much). My personal routine turns out to be 48 lunges and 48 squats.
Yeah, that hurt.
But, I did it. I didn’t do them perfectly, I didn’t do anything perfectly, but it’s been months since I worked out, so I gave myself plenty of leeway. However, i plan to workout again tomorrow, and the next day. I certainly won’t be doing any lunges for a couple of days, but sure, I can do other things that will get me back into shape pretty quick.
