releasing my inner kickboxer.

today was day 1 of Banish Fat Boost Metabolism DVD by Jillian Michaels.

I don't remember ever sweating as much as I did today! This video is about an hour long & I LOVE IT!!!

know what I love the most about it? The "kick boxing" moves. Who knew I'd love those moves so much? I guess I should have figured that I'd love them, because it's almost like fighting & Lord knows I've gone more than a few rounds with people in my life (not that I'm a bully...or anything...) LOL.

it just feels so good! Working so hard that sweat gets in my eyes & feeling the sweat pour down between my shoulder blades & clothes being wet with sweat...oh yea! I'm working!

when I think about all the years I've wasted, just thinking I had to be this middle aged woman that felt terrible because there was no other option for me...thinking that working out was not my "thing" like it was for my husband. Turns out I just need to go another way...and that "old lady" I was feeling like is long gone. I feel strong......and I feel like a million bucks!

the whole time I'm working out, I remember all those that mistreated me & I admit those kickboxing moves make me imagine evening the score by kicking them...etc. Making them pay for how they mistreated me in the past...and encourages me to get so strong no one can ever hurt me like that again, at least without knowing they've been in the fight of their lives.

my face is STILL flushed & it's been about 30 mins since I finshed the workout. OH YEA. I felt it!

Your post just pumped me up for my run today. I really don't want to do it as I just woke up and I just want to curl in bed but your description makes me want to go out there and feel the sweat too.

We are strong! We can do it!
