Losing It with Valerie Bertinelli

Last week my mom was in town and since we only had a few days together I didn’t want to spend my normal hour working out and then 15-minute yoga cool-down, so I chose the 20-minute body basics with Valerie .  I even convinced my mom to do it with me on the last day.  She had fun.  I had gotten the DVD years ago and had only done the 20 minute workout.  After my mom left, I went to the 40-minute workout and I found that I really enjoyed it.  I have been doing it 6 days now and every day I seem to activate another muscle and it really feels good.  It’s a great workout, but not at all as strenuous as the ones by Jillian or Billy.  I am not nearly as sore, which is excellent and I still feel like I can walk a few miles.  With the others, honestly, I am tired!  I read one of Valerie’s Books on Friday:  Losing It:  And Gaining my Life Back One Pound at a Time  it was really good, she was very open about her struggles in life, which were many more than expected.  The glimpse into the Van Halen world was also interesting.

I will admit though every morning it is a tug-o-war to get me to turn on the video.  I change into my workout wear almost as soon as I get up so I can’t weasel out of it, but sometimes I will admit, I can procrastinate – especially on social media for way to long.  I have a system down, that I eat, write, then workout – but some mornings I have been writing first, which leaves me a window to check social media.  I don’t like to workout right after I eat, but if I don’t eat first I find that my energy lags in the middle of the workout – especially Jillian’s!  I think everyone has to find what works for them, I am thankful for the time I have had to get back in shape and find out what works for me.  I am going to keep doing the 40-minute work out this week.  Then maybe back to Jillian.  I especially am anxious to do her yoga workout.  As I remember, it was quite a challenge.
