How many podcasts do I need to listen to? How many articles do I need to read that tell me to just get started? I’m a perfectionist. Ok, there…I said it. Like many people, I’ve contemplated starting a blog for months now, maybe a year? Wow…time is running together. Regardless, I’ve thought about it. I’ve thought, “oh, that’d be a good blog post” numerous times. Have I done anything about that yet? Well, I got a domain name. So, there’s that. Beyond that? Uh, negative.
There is a famous quote by Reid Hoffman, the founder of LinkedIn, that says, “If you’re not embarrassed by the first version of your product, you’ve launched too late.” I have never been good at embracing this type of philosophy. See earlier comment about being a perfectionist. With that in mind though, I’ve decided…it’s time to get embarrassed. I need to stop overanalyzing; I need to stop “planning” and perfecting my ideas. It’s time to just put pen to paper, or fingertips to keyboard, and get going. I am passionate about health and fitness, and I always have friends, family, and sometimes strangers asking about what I eat, what I do for exercise, etc etc. So, it’s no surprise…that’s what I’m doing here.
Welcome to my online health journal of sorts. Let’s go ahead and be proactive here. I apologize for any embarrassing things I put on the internet, anything I say that might offend you, or anything you don’t agree with. I’m taking deep cleansing breaths here, because here we go. Let’s share and chat and get better together. It’s all about living a fit and healthy life, but recognizing there is no end game. It’s a journey. It’s life. It’s My Fit Life in Progress…
To kick things off, I thought…we need a workout! That may be why you’re here, right?? I wanted to share a workout I used when teaching a boot camp class a few weekends ago. For this workout, you’ll perform 1 minute of work, followed by 20 seconds of rest in between each exercise. Complete 1 set of each exercise through the entire circuit. Complete the entire circuit 2 times through. After you complete the circuit, perform a Tabata-style interval “break,” which is 20 seconds of work, followed by 10 seconds of rest for 4 rounds. You’ll alternate between the two exercises listed. Once you complete, move on to the 2nd circuit and repeat the process again. Enjoy!
