I am celebrating today!
At the end of December, Jeremy took the kids on a trip out of state and I was working from home. I knew I wanted to have a more dedicated focus to fitness in 2012 so I decided to dust off the old "TransFIRMation" DVD's from The FIRM. There are 4 DVD's and adjustable weights that come with the set (1lb to 8lb each). (note: these were purchased between kids as I tried to "get my body back"...I think I did one workout and shelved the whole thing :), needless to say, there was much dust...) Anyway, they also came with a booklet that described each of the DVD's in the set and also a handy calendar (you must know that I LOVE CALENDARS to tell me what to do every day). The calendar was a 30 day that gave the appropriate workouts to do 5 days a week and called for 2 days of rest.
I was bored after finishing my work for the day and so I gave the first DVD a shot. I loved it. It was a 25 min sculpting DVD (the workouts range from 25-55 min). I looked back at the calendar and told myself I would do the whole month. It helped to know that as soon as Jeremy was back, he would be starting Insanity. That gave me some motivation knowing that I wouldn't be the only one to get up at 5am to do a workout. :)
So today - a month later - I am celebrating! I finished the last workout on the calendar and realized that I finished something. I did have two days during the month that I got off track simply because I wasn't home, but instead of just skipping them, I found myself repeating the whole week to stay on track. This is really major for me.
So major in fact that I have printed off the Leslie Sansone Walk At Home calendar for February and I am ready for the challenge....29 Days...sure I CAN do it. I plan to reward myself by purchasing a DVD pack of WATP from Walmart that I saw the other day. And maybe I will get a pedicure :)
