Clearly I have a tough time sticking with any fitness regime in particular. I have always loathed running/jogging so I wasn’t surprised that I really didn’t stick that one out. The free video search worked out for awhile, but there was no drive factor to keep me wanting more.
Last week I randomly decided to to watch an infomercial on youtube for Beachbody’s Cize workout videos. The infomercial was so motivating! It introduced the viewer to the typical person who successfully lost some absurd amount of weight who you see in workout ads, and those who ended up chiseled and jacked. What really had me going was when the video introduced a girl who was absolutely afraid of dancing. She was relatable to me; I’m not afraid to dance, but I’m not necessarily that crazy about it either. I always figured people did these types of workouts when they already enjoyed or had experience dancing.
As you probably already know from other parts of my blog, I am far too cheap to spend $100 on a workout video so I searched local buy/sell/trade pages and then resorted to ebay where I found and purchased the “cize” package for $33. Absolute steal, and it was brand new still in the plastic wrap!
I received it in the mail yesterday afternoon and was super excited to begin the program this morning. I did it while my husband was at work (I apologize) because although we agreed to do it together I just could not wait. It was great! I was sweating, feeling my muscles, and definitely challenged throughout the video.
My husband did it during his lunch break and he was much better at the moves than I was. However, I was itching to do it again so I actually ended up doing it again a few hours after he went back to work. Two times in one day, and I did so much better the second time than I did the first! I have never been so into a workout program! Seriously I cannot wait for tomorrow to do it again.
Here’s to hoping I stick with this program and end up getting back into shape!
