Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your kind comments on yesterday’s post. Did you see how many typos I made? It’s kind of embarrassing!
Today I shall do a 180 from my nostalgic thoughts of my childhood and share my thoughts about Glee and how I can’t join a gym. Doesn’t that make all kinds of sense?
I can’t join a gym because I don’t like other people’s sweat. Also because it feels gross there with everyone exhaling so heavily, I end up watching people and rating them on my gross-o-meter instead of getting a hearty workout in. So today, dear friends, I will share a wonderful way to exercise AND enjoy it. (free of charge, you’re welcome.)
The whole point of this is to enjoy getting on your feet.
Glee as a show is actually kind of dumb. The plot lines are obvious enough that you can fast forward huge chunks and still know what is going on. But the singing and dancing motivates that hidden musical theater geek in me more than anything else. Oh to be a dancer!
I have them all taped on the DVR (you can rent them or watch them on youtube). They are memorized in my gleeky mind by tempo and as I run on the elliptical I scan my way from video to video. I keep the volume up really loud (great for kids with friends over) and weakly attempt to sing along as usually I’m pretty winded.
This is the one I start with, and if you are going to watch any pick this one.
Dream of all dreams, a piano in the library? Please know I am not even a Lionel Richie fan but this duet is my favorite. I have sang it very loud, in the car, in the shower, in the barn, while mowing the lawn.
This is what works for me: Glee + elliptical + yoga ball + geeky grin. The cat is optional.
Ohmygosh my nose looks enormous.
It’s hard to get motivated to work out every day. I am more of a competitive sports kind of person and would rather play tennis or soccer than run a few miles outside. I get too bored and start thinking how much I want to run home and drink water.
What works for you? Do you wear one of those 1980’s unitard things with a side swept pony tail?
