This month marks the finish of my first serious month of BodyRock.tv workouts. I've been following the workouts since December 2010 but only this month have I taken the time to write down each exercise I do daily. The idea is to understand my fitness level and to work towards doing better the next time that particular exercise is done.
There were a few days this month that I didn't dedicate myself enough to working out (9 days total) and I wrote it down in my exercise log. Let me tell you, flipping through the pages and seeing a highlighted section that says "NO WORKOUT" followed by my reason (or uh excuse) kinda hurts and is super embarrassing. On one day that I didn't workout my reason was because I was blogging all day! Oh brother! I remember that day too... I shouldn't have blogged about CAKES all day for sure!
But that's the beauty about keeping an exercise log, it points out the areas where I can make improvements and teaches me that there are more important things that I need to focus on.
BodyRock has been great so far. I appreciate the kind of workouts that are posted online. It's challenging enough to get a serious burn from yet simple enough for me to do at home with very limited equipment. I have noticed a significant difference in my physique along with my endurance during certain exercises. My push ups have become an easy task and squats are accomplished with a huge smile on my face! All thanks to Zuzana and her killer workouts!

I haven't set a goal yet (with my weight or size) because I don't want to set myself up for failure. My approach with this is to just 'be better.' Take what I am now and improve as steadily as I can. I encourage you to do the same. Check out Bodyrock.Tv and give the workouts a try. You've got nothing to lose... except for the fat of course!
