With the complete Asylum DVD set giveaway going on right now on the blog, I started thinking long and hard about my next fitness challenge. I’ve been in a bit of a workout slump lately- holiday parties, cold weather and work demands have made it really hard for me to commit to a workout consistently. And my eating habits could be better…
Well, you guys inspired me! I’ve decided to do the complete Asylum DVD set! Care to join me?
So I know what you’re thinking. Um, Helen, didn’t you already do Asylum Part 1? Why would you do Part 1 again instead of jumping right into Part 2? Well, as a very wise fitness friend Running HHT said: “Sometimes you have to start at the beginning.”
Sometimes you have to reset when it comes to your workout/diet, because a fresh start can give you the boost you need to stay committed. So I’m going back to the start and doing Asylum Part 1 and then Asylum Part 2 starting…TODAY!
This morning I got up and did Day One of Asylum Pt 1: Speed & Agility. Good Lord! I forgot how much I hate the floor ladder. I forgot how my heart rate goes through the roof each time I do mountain climbers, in&out abs, etc. I spent a lot of the time wondering what the hell I was committing myself to!
Since I’ve already done reviews of Asylum Part 1 on the blog, I think I may just give you guys a few basic updates every so often, especially if I notice better results this time around. Let me know if there’s anything that YOU want to hear about my Asylum Part 1 experience that I haven’t covered in my reviews! Then it will be on to Asylum Part 2, where I’ll do another set of weekly reviews & a results post.
Thanks a lot for being my inspiration guys! Stay tuned…and let me know if you’ve already entered the Asylum! 😉 CFC
