This week at the Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans we were asked to think outside the fitness box and try something we had never done before. Now, I really struggled with this because I've been at this exercise and weightloss thing for a long time and have tried pretty much everything available to me. I've done every class our gym has to offer, worked out to DVDs and the Wii. I've run, I've walked, I've done Zumba (not my cup of tea, btw). I've done Jenny Craig, Weight Watchers, gone it on my own. I've run several 5K's. Needless to say, my options were looking pretty bleak.
Then I realized, pretty much everything I've done with exercise this week HAS incorportated something new. I'm using technology to train.
- I'm using the Nike+ sensor for the first time (love it!)
- I downloaded a Couch to 10K program onto my phone
- I'm training for a 10K
Since I wasn't sure if these would count since I have tried running in the past, I decided to do something completely crazy and outside my comfort zone. I did a vlog. I actually allowed myself to be videotaped while jumping around like an idiot during our Biggest Loser Last Chance Tworkout on Tuesday night. This is from a girl who rarely allows herself to be photographed, much less videotaped. About as far outside my comfort zone as I could go. I hit the 10 pound loss mark this week. Maybe this will be an every-10-pounds event.
Enjoy the laugh at my expense. I can take it.
