This weekend I am committing myself to start and eventually complete the low impact 30 day challenge using the Wii Active program. I am slightly nervous about my ability to pull this off as I’ve watched Mike for the past week and it does seem like it might be quite difficult for me. Motherhood keeps my pretty busy but aside from that and the occasional walk to the park and down the street I confess that I am not really doing much exercise to keep myself young and healthy…so I am about to try this one thing and hope that it resonates for me. If I’m able to make it work for me, then I’m going to try to continue it and work up to the eventual goal of doing the high intensity work out.
I think the most important thing for me as I embark on this new effort is to go at my own pace and try to push through activities or exercises that seem too hard for me to do (like squats, I hate squats, I LOATHE sqauats) and just keep trying. If I can maintain an any exercise is good exercise attitude and just simply try to do my best then I think I can be successful at it. So, wish me luck as I give this a good shot – using all the effort I have, a good pair of running shoes and a teeny bit of caffeine….kidding…ok not truly kidding.
I’ll keep you posted.
