Have You Ever Turbo Jam'd?!?!

As everyone knows the coming of a New Year brings all kinds of changes and for me that means changes in my schedule. I will be taking my niece during the day three full days a week instead of 2 half days and one full day. I used to just stay home all day on Wednesdays and then hit the gym every other morning. I'm thinking that I may not get out quite as often as I used to. I was searching for a workout I could do from home.

My sister-in-law had been trying to get me to try Turbo Jam ever since she got it. She has used it to get back in shape after having her baby. I didn't doubt that the workout worked for her but I was feeling a bit too self-conscience about Jamming in my living room. Going to a spinning class was pushing it for me when it comes to group exercise. At least our spinning classes are in the dark.

I finally gave in and agreed to trying the first couple disks in the Turbo Jam program. Yes, I felt like a FOOL when doing some of those moves. I almost gave it up when Chris came home one day unexpectedly and caught me punching and kicking in my severely uncoordinated fashion. But, I was sweating and feeling the burn. The kicker (ha ha!) was when I woke up and realized that I was sore in the abs, etc. Hmmm! Maybe this workout really does work! I decided to give it a more thorough try.

I can now get through the 45 minute Cardio Party on disc 2 and live to tell the tale. I feel like collapsing at the end but I finish it. My sister-in-law and I will be switching discs soon and I will get to try out the other workouts. We'll see how it goes.
