I am gonna do this!!

Ok- we all need goals, and I am hideously out of shape, always tired and dragging through the day.  I eat healthily bu strolling around the neighborhood twice a day with dogs and/or hubby is not quite cutting it!  I have to get back some energy and I think this is my key!  I can do these exercises IF I work up the energy and strength again.  I used to be really athletic so I know it's still inside this 53 year old body!



In a nutshell:
- Burns as many calories as a 40-60 minutes run.

- Makes your body adapt and improve very quickly.

- Increases metabolism for next 36 hrs

- Takes only FOUR minutes, no excuses.

I came to this site thru the LDS senior primary mailing list. Anyway, I am a huge fitness buff and follow a similar workout schedule in addition to running. There is a HUGE library of these interval workouts (like the one you posted) on my favorite website bodyrock.tv. Good luck! You will love it!

I am tired just looking at her, but it does seem doable! We will see! I came here looking for loom knitting and look at how you have inspired me in another way. :)
