I did Tracy Anderson's Metamorphosis DVD for the first time- see yesterday's post. And here's what I thought:
I was supposed to start with the dance cardio session, but did the sculpting session first. Which I LOVED. 30 minutes of that? 6 days a week? NO PROBLEM! It was awesome. And with her DVDs you change the sculpting session every 10 days so it doesn't get old. I love that!
Then I put in the cardio disk. Have I told you how much I don't like cardio?! Cause I don't and this was no exception. I gotta admit and felt super silly "dancing" in my living room. I don't know if it's really dancing as much as jumping up and down and kicking your feet. Maybe that is dancing? After 5 minutes I didn't know how I was going to last for another 25. Not because it was so hard, but because it was boring. The arches on my feet hurt the whole time- I may need to wear more supportive shoes and not my running shoes. But I did sweat and I could definitely feel it working muscles I don't normally move; which was the point.
When she said, "Your in the home stretch" I basically stood there and watched her finish the last 5 minutes. I was over it. 6 days a week of this? Ummmm......
All this to say... I'm going to give it a go! I'll definitely invest 30 days and commit to it. I don't know that I'll be keeping up with the cardio DVD 6 days a week, but may do it 3 days a week and mix it up with running. Did I tell you I signed up for a Spartan race in December?! Beyond exciting! My results may take longer, but hey, we're also supposed to enjoy exercising and how we spend our time each day. I think if there is a type of exercise you prefer over another, then do it. As long as your moving and keep that heart rate up!
So, I'm in. 30 days. I wrote down my starting measurements. Write down yours too! Even if you're not doing the videos, just so you know your progress in 30 days. Bust, biceps, waist (at belly button), hips and thighs and your weight. Remember to measure around the fullest part of those areas.
Tracy tells you to remeasure every 10 days, so I'll let you know if there's any difference then. My guess is I won't see any results before 2 weeks.
Happy working out!
