Just Do It!!

To steal a slogan from Nike, Just do it!! By 'it' I mean exercise!! Get off that couch and EXERCISE!! Tonight I didn't really want to do either of my exercises, but I told myself I would feel better if I did the 30 Day Shred DVD, and besides my sisters are counting on me, right?! So I put That Other Kid to bed, put the dvd in, changed clothes and DID IT!! Not only did I manage to do the exercises I even managed to do better tonight! Immediately after doing the DVD I usually take a few minutes to rest before I move on the WiiFit Hula exercises, but I could tell my desire to exercise was waning....I have a pile of laundry to do, my back hurts, blah, blah, blah!

So instead of sitting down I moved right into it...I just refilled my water and got moving with it. I always (or almost always) start with the body test, to check my balance and weight...according to WiiFit. Tonight it told me my balance was off and my weight was up, which didn't really surprise me much, since I splurged and had a double dip ice cream cone and 4 chocolate chip cookies...on top of a not so great dinner....This made me decide to go ahead and push myself and do the 70 second Hula. Once I was done with that I figured what the heck, if I can't make for the 6 minute duration, then at least I tried, right??

Well not only did I make the entire 6 minutes but I set a new record!! 1797 spins!! So as I said before, JUST DO IT!! You might even feel better when you are done!!

WAY TO GO, Ann!! I didn't want to Shred tonight either, because I was gone ALL day long. I got home at 8:30, put the kids to bed, changed clothes and did it. I'm so glad I did. SO GLAD!

I'm proud of you for doing even though you didn't feel like it! And I'm so proud of you for continuing to hit the Wii Hula! Congrats on hitting a new record!!

Keep up the good work, girl! It's gonna pay off big time for you!
