I'm more of a gym person. I have a hard time getting motivated to work out at home. But..obviously, with a full time job and baby I don't always have the time to make it to the gym.
I had a late cup of coffee this evening and took a late nap with Abby, I had some extra energy to burn off so I decided to try a variety at home work outs to see if there was something I liked. Considering I just spent the past two hours working out, I'd say it was pretty accomplishing!
I tried a number of work outs off of the Exercise TV section on On Demand. Unfortunately, I am not very coordinated. It is challenging for me to watch someone on TV do a work out routine and follow it, lol. If I know it in my head - sure, I can do it..no problem. But when I don't know the routine by heart..I can't watch and do at the same time, ha ha. I suck.
With that said, out of the 5ish routines I tried, my most favorite was "Fit in your jeans by Friday" by Kim Kardashian. I also really enjoyed the "Crunch" series. They were both girly and enjoyable. Making it easy to follow along..which is obviously a huge necessity to me!
All in all I still don't think TV work out sessions are for me. Maybe a quick 10 minute ab or arms, but no huge routine. Not my thing.
What I did like? Just doing my own thing. I played music videos from On Demand and did a certain exorcise for the length of the video. Example: I did right and left leg lifts for the length of the "Lets get it started - Black eyed peas" video, and squats for the length of the "Hips Don't Lie - Shakira" video. Seems to be working pretty well for now!
I still prefer the gym more, but finding something to do when I'm not able to make it there is exciting :)
