Rain

The weather here in my neck of the woods Virginia it has been raining cats and dogs.

It has been dreary and miserable the last two days and will continue through tomorrow. 

Well let’s just say the rainy weather is not very good for my motivation. As in my house is a mess, my laundry is overflowing, and I’m making a dent in my couch. 

I will say that I’ve put a serious dent in my book I’ve been reading. I also managed to get some studying for my class done. 4 chapters worth of terms and notes all typed up and ready to be printed out. 

I’ve been eating like crap the last couple of days and not exercising at all and being a complete couch potato. All really bad things. I need to get myself out of this funk and get myself moving. 

I really need to go back to my fitness classes however with my night classes and kickball league it makes it nearly impossible to attend them. 

Monday night we do have a double header so I’ll get some activity in then, and I’m thinking Wednesday I’ll hit up my zumba and yoga class. I’ll drag the hubby along with me, he’ll hit the gym doing some lifting and cardio while I attend classes. 

I definitely need to do something. 

I have plenty of workout programs I can do at home between BeachBody, The Pound, KettleWorx, Moov, Couch25K, Walk at Home, so really I have no excuse to not work out. I need to schedule it in my day again and just make it a part of my day again. 

It’s that whole getting started thing that’s the problem once I start I have no problem keeping at it its just that getting started thing. 

Ah motivation you are lacking again. Where are you my old friend?

You Know You’re Excited When…

  • You wake up in the middle of the night and promptly jump on the internet to purchase said item
  • Until you realize that it is not Monday yet
  • You were willing and ready to skip the weekend and jump to Monday so that you could purchase said item
  • You have literally had a dream about it
  • You are hoping its offered on Amazon so that you can get 2 day Prime shipping, and are even contemplating paying for overnight shipping
  • You’re posting your blog at 7:30 am because you’re up and wired thinking about it and need to tell someone about it

What is it that I’m so excited about you ask. I will tell you. Now, I’m not a BeachBody coach nor am I encouraging you to join them or anything like that. I’m not a Shakeology person, never tried the stuff and don’t care too I don’t check out their challenges or anything like that. 

But, I am a Shaun T fan. Hip Hop Abs, yup I love it. Insanity, holy mother of pearl does that nonsense work. T25 love love love it. I’ve done all 3 of these workout programs designed by Shaun T and love them. Okay, I love it when I finished the days workout during the workout I’m cursing Shaun T up a storm, asking why he hates me, but I love it. I really enjoy his “training” style and the workout I get from his programs. Everyone of his programs that I’ve done I’ve seen results. They work! Insanity and T25 even with not eating the best I saw inches come off and I definitely got stronger, which was what I was looking for. 

Well now Mr Shaun T has a new program coming out called Cize, and it’s all about dance. I’m totally stoked for this. I love going to Zumba class and well this is Shaun T so I can just imagine how serious this is going to get. I’ve seen some previews of the program and it looks like lots of fun. It’s called Cize the end of exercise since they say you won’t even realize you’re exercising. I’m down for that. 

So, as you can imagine Monday I’ll be ordering my copy of Cize and trying it out. I’m basically like a kid at Christmas waiting for the opportunity to get my hands on it. Of course even after I order it I’ll still be waiting for it to arrive on my doorstep. And, man if it’s not available on Amazon I’ll be waiting even longer for it as the shipping from BeachBody is nowhere near as quick as Amazon Prime. Yeah, I’m getting excited and worked up about it all at once. 

How about you are there any at home workouts that you absolutely love and have to have?
