I’m So Out Of Shape

EngadgetVR-01+(1)

Since starting my doctorate in 2015, I’ve become quite sedentary. I’m no spring chicken either. Today, I started the 30-day free trial of BodyRock.TV. I attempted the beginner day 1 boot camp video. It said it’s for people who have never exercised, the elderly, after surgery, that type of thing. I’m both proud and disgusted to say I finished the first 100 seconds of the video. That’s like 1 minute 40 seconds.

I have visions dancing in my head of perky elderly people finishing the warm-up and the day 1 boot camp. Pft. It’s okay. I’m going to finish the whole video today…in 100 second sessions. I can do this. Oh yes I can! Just because the name of the video has day 1 boot camp in the title doesn’t mean I can’t just stay on day 1 until I ace it because I know I’m not going to work up to day 30 in 30 days.

To give myself a little credit, I’ve been trying to walk or cycle 10,000 steps per day and do a few body weight exercises on the Challenger Bars. It’s just that hopping around is a little out of my league right now.

Tonight, I’m making zero-point chili for dinner. It’s my own special concoction. I’ll post the recipe this evening or tomorrow. It’s a good dinner for these below-freezing temperatures we’re having.

  1. Hey, don’t be too hard on yourself. Body Rock is HARD. I have been doing their workouts for years. Even before they were big and cool with products. I mean YEARS as in 8-10 when I followed their janky YouTube channel with Freddy and is Ex partner. LOL She was a blonde.

    HIIT is hard. Burpees are hard. They are serious about working out. That being said, I have toned back and no longer work out the way I once did with them due to some injuries from two car accidents. But I still HIIT train using their method and what I learned. I still continue to have excellent core strength thanks to BR. You will be amazing as time goes on and you progress. 🙂
