work it out

I feel like I've been the laziest slug lately. I used to be so good about exercising everyday. Although in my defense, this is my first time working full-time, but regardless, busy Anne = lazy exercise Anne.

The fact that it's now darker when it's time to get up isn't helping, want to stay in bed!

Anyway, the past couple days I've been forcing myself out of bed and doing one of my old videos. I'm liking it better this time around so far.

I'm still not crazy about her personality. And as someone who has a minor in exercise science, I was taught to give your muscles a day of rest - where this video has you do the same workout every day all week - that I don't agree with. So I do her video and alternate days 1, 2, and 3. So everyday a muscle is being worked, but just not the same exact muscle for 5 days straight.

Anyway, it is a pretty good workout. My shoulders are in pain right now. But it's good. A friend says she has another one by Ms. Micheals and I'm excited to do a video trade. I like the variety and the fact that I can try another video without spending $15 :)


  1. I did the Shred this morning too! It's nice to trade exercise videos, my old co-worker and I used to do this and it was so much fun!

  2. UGH! It is so hard to stay motivated to exercise when super busy. My goal is 4-5 days a week, and that feels tough! I actually really liked the 30 Day Shred. It is the only exercise challenge I have actually completed! The second level, 3rd circuit killed my arms. I still cringe thinking about it!

  3. great job! keep up the good work! :)
