What's the #1 Mistake Women Make When Starting A Workout?

Good morning folks!  Starting out with a great tip from Holly Rigsby this morning.  Everyone who knows me knows I tend to do exactly what she's talking about - too much, too soon.

It's not a problem I've always had.  When I was younger, it didn't matter how much I threw at myself I could handle it.  I worked out at the gym three times a week, ran milers and 5K's, and rode my bike to and from work.  It was no big deal.

After my strokes, I tried pushing myself and failed repeatedly.  One, it wasn't just because you can't do that after a stroke, and the other was forgetting I was in my 40's at that time.  Man, does your body change.  laugh
I'm 52 now, and happily accept that you can't do what you did in your 30's and 40's.  I don't even want to. LOL  All I want is to tone up again and feel stronger.  I'm happy with that.  

Unfortunately, there's a lot of peer pressure out there for people to do more, and push the limits of their bodies.  Take P90X for example. There's folks my age who are doing it.  Sometimes it makes you feel like a wimp, that you can't pull it off.

Then I think about all the folks my age who are doing it, and end up at the chiropractor.  It's not worth it.   

If you feel the same way at times, and even if you don't, you'll really like this vid.  

By the way, I like the fact that at the end they mention that despite her program being called 'Fit Yummy Mummy,' it's not just for mom's.  laugh
