WWD: Work. It. Out.

I have been so excited about working out every day since first hearing about the bodyrock site that in an UNPRECEDENTED move (in the merciblahblah household) I have actually worked out for the past 8 days in a row. Unfortch for me, it has resulted in a slight injury. I tweaked my shoulder Monday when working out, but went ahead and did the workout posted at the bottom on Tuesday, and now - DUH - it hurts worse.

First of all, I say unprecedented because in the past I could ALWAYS come up with an excuse not to work out, even when I have been more motivated to do so. Since finding bodyrock though, I realized that if I can't find 15 - 20 minutes to get my ass kicked, I've got bigger problems than not working out. I actually look forward to doing it everyday, possibly because every routine is different (and I am a person who gets bored with a workout quickly), but even more so because they are short (yet I'm still dripping sweat at the end).

I have still been forgoing the more twisty-turney moves, or anything really focused on the core until I go back to the doc on Monday to HOPEFULLY get his blessing to get back to turbokick and boot camp classes (though I feel like bodyrock is as intense as boot camp).

What has also kept me coming back is that I feel like I can already see differences in various body parts, even after just 2 weeks doing this.
Of course, YOU can't see them, what with those body parts being underneath a giant maxi skirt and slouchy tank, but they're there, and firmer. Trust. Sorry if I keep talking about the workouts, but I am really motivated at the moment, so until I get to the point where I am unmotivated, you'll keep hearing about them. And if anyone out there decides to bodyrock along wif me, let me know - we can motivate each other. See how that works?

So that's MY story - what's YOURS?

Tank, Sandals, Belt (that you can hardly see): Target
Skirt, Earrings: F21

BAM! I'll look into it, sista. Afterall, I am unemployed and still unable to find a reason to work out.

p.s. I can't stop thinking about slicing wasps midair. I think he read that over my shoulder, because i haven't seen him since.

I can see the deltoid muscle in your arm in that last picture, so those workouts must be working. I am starring all your workout posts so that I can start doing them after Baby B2 gets here so keep it goin'!

Carey - YES to pulling the old ninja mind trick on the wasp.

Foxy Moxie - Oooooh, DO IT. Let me know how it goes once you get started. And THANK YOU for the compliment from the bottom of my deltoids.
