An Admission of Sorts

Yes, I fell off the wagon.  BUT, I climbed back on.  Consistency is clearly the key.  I missed roughly four days.  Why? Life intruded. Family obligations here, deadline there. It was baaddd.  Dust bunnies dusted me off instead of the other way around.  A lack of sleep kept my eyes closing so much coffee did nothing to keep me awake.  I guess when your body decides it needs rest there’s not much you can do to prevent it.

I like the Metamorphosis tapes and I do see a difference.  I’m on the next set of workouts for Days 11-20.   I will say this though, I’m not a huge fan of cardio.  I feel like I’m an authority on workout tapes considering I have a “library” of them (at least that what I’m told).  I can do only so many jumping jacks, mountain climbers, etc. before my rebellious nature kicks in and I reach for the remote to turn the TV off.  What's someone like me to do? I get my cardio by dancing.  I know, I know.  I’m not following the Metamorphosis program to a “T.”  However, I work much harder if a great beat backs my moves (sort of like how I could leave Usain Bolt in the dust if a bear ran behind me).

My musical tastes are eclectic for sure (After sending off my taxes last night, I felt the need to hear Tupac. Don't judge me). Yep, nothing like shaking a little somethin’ somethin’ to a favorite song.  After my “cardio,”  I was fired up and ready to lift and tone.   

Try it, it might work for you too.  And if not, at least you’ll be in a good mood.
