Oh honey, I’m no longer young. At least I didn’t feel young after working out with Cindy Crawford for 45 minutes.
I could do most of the workout (had to modify a couple of things because of my back) but I noticed a few things.
I can’t kick as high as I did at 20.
I’m not as flexible as I was at 20.
I’m not able to get out of the floor as easily as I could at 20.
My first thought was WHY did I buy a workout DVD that reminds me that I’m no longer 20 years old and far from 140 pounds?????
My second thought was this:
Keep doing this workout. Get better at it. Do it better than when you were 20.
I’m already FAR stronger than I was at 20. I will lose more weight and my flexibility will come back with more exercise.
I’m on it.
I may never look like Cindy Crawford but I won’t rest until I can high-kick as well as she could….20 years ago.
In other news, I did use my new Omron HR-500u strapless heart rate monitor. It did a great job tracking the changes in my heart rate. Unfortunately, the calorie counter seems way off. There is NO WAY I only burned 5 calories during that workout. I emailed their customer service department to see if I set something up wrong. Given my history with electronics, I’m pretty sure it’s user error.
P.S. Working out like a supermodel doesn’t mean I will ever look like one and that is fine. I’m cranky enough without living on lettuce leaves and cigarettes.
Have you done a workout lately that has you feeling your age?
