Did you think I'd forgotten to keep up the illusion that I'm a mad workout queen? What with summer holidays and the kids keeping me busy (soccer Saturdays have made it difficult to keep up our regular regimen of the gym on the weekend)... how easy would it be to miss the occasional workout?
But with summer vacation comes the lazy days of socializing, and the eating, and the DRINKING (calories, OMG, the calories of those lovely glasses of Chardonnay, Pinot, Pomtinis and Smirnoff Mojito Ready-to-Pour - and me being just soooo ready and rarin-to pour ...). Unfortunately it is also the season of the swimsuit, shorts, and cami's.
Thank goodness the newest Bodyjam release, #45, is the best one. Ever. I don't almost wreck my back over just anything, you know.
I thought I'd share what has made it a little easier for me to get to the gym 2 -3 times a week, even in the summer...
I present BODYJAM 45:
The warm up (it's a long one, but imperative to loose up. Check the last couple of minutes of this video for the gist of it)
Contemporary Rock - Voodoo People - Prodigy. This is my favourite part... it's aggressive and I can pretend I'm ready to rumble...
A little reprieve in the middle - to smooth Dream feat Rihanna "Livin' a Lie"
So here's the whole routine wrapped up in a nice little demo...they're not exactly moshing, but then I don't think they're from Scarborough, Ontario, either... (Bring em out; a little RATM; Prodigy; With Every Heartbeat Robyn S; Delirium feat S. Mclahlan - tiesto remix ...)
This workout makes my brain think I'm 22 years old, when clearly I'm ... well, NOT. Maybe one of these days when I'm half drunk but still able to stand, I'll get my boy to videotape me doing the routine to post, instead of just featuring the more cut and younger instructors pulled from Youtube.
In any case, if they keep up with these rawkin' workouts, maybe my body might finally feel the need to align with the mind...
