The Computer Guy and I started working out together 2 nights ago. We haven't been hard core exercise people since high school, but recently I got asked to review an at home workout program so here we are.
I don't think we've laughed as hard as when the DVD guy showed us the fifth kind of push-up and asked us how many we were going to do. The loons on the TV manned up and said "30." We said "maybe two" and then proved ourselves to be optimistic when we could only do one. (In our defense, they were incredibly hard push-ups. We're not girly men here or anything like that.)
Two days and we're so sore that neither of us can move easily. It hurts to breathe and I have ab muscles which I had forgotten long ago. I'm paying for neglecting them now. I just can't tell my sweet Computer Guy. One of us has to be the tough one. He called to say "it hurts to breathe" and I started laughing but didn't tell him how much it hurts to laugh. I just used that annoying breathing you do when you're having a baby, which made me laugh harder. I had to get off the phone before he figured out how sore I am and said "Let's just forget this crazy workout thing and grab a burger." Because I could go for a burger right now, but I can't because there's a whole diet component and I promised to stick to the whole thing for the review so no burger for me.
They say that what doesn't kill you makes you stronger. I agree with that. This workout will either do me in, or I'll be ripped in time for Thanksgiving. Here's my review for now ( although I can't name it until I'm through the whole thing), the workout is intense. The best part of the whole thing is watching my husband try to do aerobics. The worst is push-ups (the only push up I like is in a bra). My favorite is the ab exercise I get from laughing at us and how bad we are at this. Only 88 days to go.
