This weekend, I picked up a copy of Shape Magazine – the one with Molly Sims on the cover. All I really know about the girl is she’s all legs and a super model – oh, and that Rachel Zoe is her stylist. What I now LIKE about her is that she doesn’t laugh and say she’s naturally thin and doesn’t have to try that hard to look good (this is also a reason I like Amber Heard); she admits that she works at it constantly.
One specific thing she said that’s stuck with me is that recently she tried working out every day for a month, for a full hour each day. Every. Day. The result? She felt great! For anyone who works out, this is probably no surprise, and for those that don’t, it may seem counter-intuitive.
There was a week, back in October or November, where I worked out every day for a week – a minimum of 30 minutes each time. It was so difficult because that week exploded at work, but all the exercise actually gave me MORE energy to conquer it all. I had no life outside of work and workouts that week, but some weeks are just like that.
So, I’m going to give this a shot – 1 month of 30+ minute workouts, daily, starting today. Boot camp will be a big part of this, but I KNOW there will be days where it’s too cold to get out of bed. That’s fine – I just have to make up for it in the evenings. Tennis is a big part of this, too – as Spring leagues get into gear, I will be playing 1-3 times per week, hopefully!
The point (I’m making to myself) is this: give it a month and see what can happen!
