Insanity: Pure Cardio
Day 6 was a tough one for EJ…
I lost my aunt to cancer and was feeling down this morning.
As a result, I really didn’t feel like pushing play. I was thinking of the many wonderful memories I’ve had with her and remembered one particular conversation. My aunt was an incredibly fit woman with a love for the outdoors and scuba diving.
One day I asked her “how do you stay so fit?” and she responded “I made a choice to.” There’s no “naturally slim” gene in my family and her words struck a chord with me. I’m making a choice. So in spite of feeling depressed and down, I pressed play.
Favorite Move – Frog Jumps
Hardest Move – Level 2 Drills
Current Struggle – Any cardio move that involves lifting my knee high (i.e. switch kicks, mountain climbers, etc)
Dig Deep Tip – I typically work out in the privacy of my living room after my husband has already left for work. Today, though, I had an audience since I at my aunt’s house. My uncle and one of my aunts watched me workout through the whole DVD. Although it was a bit strange having people watch me, I definitely dug a bit deeper. When possible, get a workout buddy or don’t be afraid to workout in front of others.
