This was my second week of doing Tone It Up videos. I selected a random assortment of workouts (about 40 minutes in length) to complete for five days. I also had one day of rest day and one day of active recovery. In terms of my weekly update, my pal DK suggested that I try a different format, so I am going to give it a shot. If you are not a fan, please blame her!
What I enjoyed: The Tone It Up videos are short, fun, and effective. I can honestly say that I haven’t come across any that I haven’t enjoyed. I could do without the long introductions featuring the instructors dancing around, but on the bright side, I can skip through them.
What I did not enjoy: In terms of my workouts, I hate any and all jumping. In regards to my overall journey, I am still not seeing the results that I want to see and it’s very frustrating. I did get my thyroid medication adjusted, which my doctor said should help. People keep telling me to be patient, but it’s not like I will wake up one day and the fat will simply melt off of me, so I’m not sure exactly what I am supposed to be patient for. However, all I can do is keep going, so that’s what I’m doing. I’m not going to pretend it’s not a daily struggle for me though.
What I learned: I feel so much better when I make it a point to work out in the morning. Waking up at 5 a.m. is no fun at all, but I feel great for the rest of the day. The best part is that I have my evenings free to spend with JP and B. I am a much happier and more balanced person when I make this happen, so I am going to continue doing it (despite the increasingly chilly air I’m waking up to – BRR!).
