Still SO out of shape!

Ugh. Has anyone ever done the original 'The Firm' cardio workout? I bought this years ago (Like six, I think) and every once in a while I get ambitious and think I can tackle it. Today was one of those days.

It is a 55 minute workout. I did twenty minutes and collapsed in disgrace.

I am sweating and huffing and puffing like I just ran a marathon! I mean, really. How wimpy! I honestly thought since I'd been walking/running on a regular basis, this workout would be a bit of a challenge but I could surely do it!

I was SO wrong.

I am obviously still in pretty sad shape so my new workout goal is to do 20 minutes of this tape three days a week (on top of my treadmill workout) until I can build up to doing the whole workout twice a week. I desperately need toning anyway, so the weights and cardio combo is a good thing for me to be doing right now.

Hard work, but good. :)

Ugh, indeed...

  1. Ugh, The Firm was Killer! I think I bought it the same time you did. No way I could do it now. Though there was a time when I was doing that 55 min. workout several times per week... then I stopped because I had it all memorized and was bored with it. I should have just ordered a couple more tapes!
