August 2016 - My Update

Wednesday, August 03, 2016

In July, I ordered a Beachbody exercise program: 22 Minute Hard Core---a workout patterned somewhat after the military. Well, a week ago I started off with Level 1 Cardio and Level 1 Resistance. It wasn't pretty on my end, but... with some modifications, I was doing somewhat so-so.

THEN... along comes Level 2 Cardio. And that's all she wrote---I am back at Level 1.

Am I disappointed? Yes, and no. I wanted to miraculously discover that I was competent to advance using the calendar that came with the program. But what I've gotta keep in mind is that this program WAS NOT DESIGNED for a 60-yr old out-of-shape woman. I accept that... I guess.

Ultimately, I'm just happy that Level 1 is do-able for me (again, as long as I am doing some of the modifications). In time, I hope to progress to Level 2. (And then someday, Level 3!)

As for where we currently are:
We are parked in an RV park in Fargo, ND until Friday. Then on to Minneapolis, MN. After that, we will mosey our way up to Duluth, MN to meet up with our RV rally group. After that rally, Steve and I will be going to Bremen, IN to drop our RV off for a month to have it re-painted. Some friends of ours offered us their house back in Wichita, KS to stay in during that month. They won't be there---so essentially we'll be house-sitting for them while they are in Colorado on vacation!

Until I think of something else, that's it for me tonight!

    A Beachbody exercise program: 22 Minute Hard Core...hmmm. Just the name along of this DVD sounds like an extreme workout program. But, sounds like to hung in there sometime to reach level 2 of the program. Good Job! Enjoy your travels..

    I hear ya! We're not in that 20-40 age range that most of the exercise programs are geared to. You are doing great. Just keep working it. I am also glad to hear you found a place to call "home" while your RV gets the new paint job. That must be expensive work! Our MH is getting back and persnickety Norm will probably want ours repainted soon too.

    Awesome! You are still working on trying to get that 61 yr. old body in condition!! I don't think i could do 5 mins of the military style exercises. I am more a yoga age person :-) Keep working at it and you will make it. Where re you going to be in Minneapolis? Would love to see you as that's our home area.
