Just had to share this with the world…today I did something I never thought I could do! This is day eighteen of the Food Lover’s Fat Loss System, and it was time to do the 36 minutes kick boxing video.
I watched it for a few minutes and thought, no way. I can’t do that. Kicks, punches, squats, arghhhh. Nope. Still. Maybe give it a try, I can quit anytime, who’s watching???
It turned out to be so much fun I forgot to watch the clock. At first, I kept one eagle eye on the clock at the bottom of the screen…36 became 33.16, then 30.03 and then I forgot all about it.
Whew! Kickin, screamin’ fun! I felt like my old self again! Who said I can’t turn back the years?? 1-2-3-kick! 1-2-3-kick-uppercut uppercut! 1-2-3…etc. I MOVED. I tapped, I kicked, I boxed!
And then came the squats…aggggg…I hate squats…oh it hurts, it hurts, pant pant pant and finally Robert says, two more, one more, stay with me and I think IT’S OVER, NO MORE SQUATS and then he says, now stay with me, one more squat and hold it hold it hold it and finally I can stand up, gasping and panting, I DID IT!!!
We move into the cool down so smoothly I don’t even notice it’s all over bar the shouting. AND, my heartrate is finally up there pounding!
As the video moved along, I noticed how April, she with the fabulous, show-off abs, keeps a big smile on her face and I thought, I betcha if I really tried, well, heck, I betcha I could smile.
I stretched my mouth into a grimace, which was easy at that point, and then molded it into a big smile, making my face feel funny…what was there to smile about?? Then I realized I was having a ton of fun and didn’t want the video to ever end…already I started wondering what I could do after it finished. Get out my Nordic walking poles? Try that straight-up right angle hill on Neil Street?
Only I stopped to do this post and let everybody know…
LOOK OUT WORLD…I’M BACK!!
