I’ve chosen to use a 4-week exercise program created by heptathlete Louise Hazel.
It’s got exercises that steadily increase in intensity and duration. The first week aims for ten minute work-outs and you’re supposed to progress to forty minutes in the fourth week.
I am praying that I make it to four weeks so when I go to visit my soulmate in Thailand, I can brag and run really fast around her. This is what I tell myself to get through the first ten minutes of hell.
My insights into my first performance of Gym Routine 1:
After years of dancing I still have no grace in floor work
My upper body is really weak and I feel like a fool doing a plank.
It was so hard I immediately got a headache after doing the first routine.
My glasses fell off twice.
I need to always wear a bra while doing this because I jiggled all over my lounge floor.
I wish I could skip to the time when I’m already fit and all of this is over.
In summation: exercise still sucks.
