Do I Dare

The journey began on Monday morning, and as of today, I am hooked. I’m sore but none the less hooked. I woke up on Monday morning in search of a new workout. They desperately need to be switched up, or boredom will set in.  Then I’ll lose sight of what my goals are.

I understand what you’re thinking 

Now, I know that I’m a trainer, and I’m supposed to stay pumped up and ready to workout no matter what. However, that couldn’t further from the truth. We get tired and need a motivator too. I feed off of positive energy just like everyone else, especially during the fall and winter. My body doesn’t like to move when the temperatures take a dive. I drag out of bed, kicking and screaming and just want to bury my head under the warm covers.

Definitely would if I could, but I can’t so up I go!

So, I pushed my kids out the door for school, took Larry for a walk, made all the beds.

I stared at the wall for a second in a profound daze. Then, I stumbled over to my Keurig to make a strong cup of coffee.

After I checked my emails, I began my search for a new Beachbody on Demand workout. I scrolled looking for a sweet face because maybe he/she would be a little less intense then what I’m used to. After a 30 minute search, I found a pretty little redhead named Jericho, and I thought okay she looks pleasant. Plus, the name of the program seemed catchy, “Core De Force.”

Cute name, right? Plus mixed martial arts… okay, let’s do this!

Spider Monkey Lady

20 minutes later, I’m dripping in sweat, and I began to question my whole life. She tricked me with her sweet and innocent face. Yes, the program cover looks intense, but if you have ever heard her talk or saw her smile, you would totally think that she was nurturing and super chill during her workouts. Turns out she’s a spider monkey!

At the end of the workout, I collapsed on the floor and thought I kinda like this.

I think I’m a little cray cray!

You could have chosen any blog to read, but you chose mine, and I’m honored.
