step by step.

oooooo babehhhh.... really want you in my wooorrrrlllldddd....

okay for those of you who are NOT familiar with new kids on the block, that was one of my favorite songs back in the day.

on another note, we got this step aerobics kit thing....

this is actually just the step (that has 5 different heights, ranging from 6 inches to 10 inches) and it came with 2 dvds.... i decided to give the ol' cardio dvd a try this morning....

Mind you, my body hasn't known any type of "major" workout since before I was pregnant with Lewie.... (which was in 2008).... so we are pushing 2 years here people!!! TWO YEEEEAAARRSSS!!!!! (okay, so like a year and a half, but still.... that is FAR too long to have not worked out)

SOOOOO, in goes the dvd after a morning stop at Target for this CR2025 battery that was much needed for my dvd remote.... I could really only watch the introduction to my workout so many times before growing highly aggitated and wanting to throw the remote through the television screen....

so here we are.... begin with stretching. I'm not even kidding, my muscles were SCREAMING after just stretching.... i'm pretty sure i heard them say something like, "HOLY CRAP! what the HELL was that you just did?!" and then i think i heard it like pop and then like tear or something.... i'm pretty sure that's what it was.... unless of course it was my pants ripping down the back....

i actually had to get off the step and move my starbucks drink out of the way of the screen. the straw was blocking my view (slightly) and just making it kind of difficult to concentrate on the lady who was telling me how great i looked....

not even going to lie, i was talking back to her (nicely of course), okay so not nicely at all.... after i tripped on my untied shoelace, i said, "oh bull! this does NOT look good.... not even a little bit! i can't even keep up!!!!" what the hell?!

i used to be able to rock this kind of stuff NOOOO problem!!!! what the HECK happened to me?!

thankfully unfortunately, Lewie started screaming, and so i had to stop the video to go get him.... and feed him....

and now that he's content.... what am i doing? yeah.... totally not finishing that dvd.... but on here telling you about my lovely ATTEMPT at working out....

one day, i tell you.... one day....
baby steps.
a step at a time....
no pun intended. ;)

yeah, wow, that was just stupid....

i'll (hopefully, but probably not) keep you updated on this and how it goes!

Ashley King said...

ally. i get so bored being on the treadmill. i LOVE step (well i loveD step, until i couldn't keep up with it!!)

the hubby says "don't do it to where you don't ever wanna do it again!"
i said, "i already don't ever want to do it again!" hahahaha. i NEED to do something to get back into shape.... =)
that's SO awesome about the concert. i went to one of them when i was really young.... i'm pretty sure it was when i was in first grade.... which would have made it about 1989.... too fun!!! =)

jenni, COME OVER AND PLAY!!!! it's so much fun.... BUT the only rule is, that however horribly i do, it canNOT be mentioned outside this house. lol. ;)

Exercise is overated and only for those who can't handle a Sedentary lifestyle...

sarahjayne smythe said...

Exercise is highly overrated. Espeically for the old folks like me. Props to you for getting back to it. :)

Ashley King said...

Ack.

Brandi + workout = OUCH!

And I don't even have an excuse! Though, I wouldn't touch aerobics with a ten foot pole. I'm much too clumsy. :)

You can dooo it!

Shell said...

At least you are trying! I have fallen off those things- I'm such a klutz!

Bossy Betty said...

I had one of those step things. They are harder than they look. They are useful for spying on the neighbors though.

Ms. Anthropy said...

Nope, thank you kindly. You'll have to do it for both of us. Go Ashley, go Ashley, go Ashley... I'll be your cheerleader!

Ashley King said...

Brandi, i am clumsy too!!! i was seriously tripping on my shoelaces!!!!

Shell, you aren't the only klutz.... see above comment!

Bossy Betty, HA! you are SO hilarious!!! "spying on neighbors" hee hee hee...

Ms. Anthropy. i totally need a cheerleader!!!! maybe your cheering will overpower my cursing at the television!!

At least you got farther than one of my recent attempts. I got out of bed and decided to do some leg lifts before getting on with the day. Twenty minutes later my son knocked on the door and woke me up. Ooh, feel the burn!
