It’s been a couple of weeks since I restarted my workouts.
Here’s what I’ve learned:
1 — The biggest key to doing anything in life and being good at it is consistency.
2 — Never give up because life causes a detour (work schedules, illness and the like).
3 — Excuses are the first step to failure.
4 — And, Nike was dead on in its “Just Do It” campaign. It really is as simple as that.
I have amazing muscles forming underneath my fat thanks to my slight obsession with David Gandy. I downloaded his fitness app on my iPad and do muscle conditioning with him in the basement. Now I just need to get rid of the fat so I can admire my two-pack abs in the mirror!
The David Gandy Fitness app was definitely worth the download. Here’s the link for more information: http://davidgandyfitness.com/
The only suggestion I would make to the site is that a pop-up box appear on the timer showing the exercise when it’s time to switch — that or I make flashcards. I have to do the exercises repeatedly in order to remember them. (Perhaps that was the creators’ plan?)
Zumba still rocks, but the occasional peep of sunshine through the gray clouds of northern Indiana is beckoning me outside.
I want to slog on the trail behind my house and breathe in the fresh air — just not the below-freezing air that makes my nosehairs freeze. I’m sticking to indoor workouts until it warms up another 20 degrees.
Today I am headed downstairs to fix my elliptical machine. I’ve been working out on it with the arms backwards. I’m bright that way.
Now to work out. No excuses. And Happy Valentine’s Day!
