Today, I started week three of a twelve week workout program. This may not seem like much to you, BUT for ME, I have never stuck with a program longer than five sessions. Today is session number seven of this program. (My workout plan is from Strong Curves.)
Yes, I am one of those people who likes “shiny new” kinds of workouts or ideas or whatever. But I have noticed that I don’t give the new workout enough time to actually give me some results.
With my workout plan from the Strong Curves book, I have a progressively harder workout already scheduled out for me. I don’t have to think much other than “What the heck is that? Scrolls through book to index…Oh! Okay, I can do that!” (Sometimes, I have to venture over to YouTube to find a video of a person actually doing the new exercise.)
It’s a lesson in patience for me. It’s also a lesson in consistency. It’s a lesson in humility.
As I went through the warmup (with a foam roller), I noticed that I wasn’t as tense while I went from move to move. I was able to do the exercises for longer and with better form. Wow!
Are you trying something new? Are you staying consistent with it? I would love to hear about it.
