Well, I did it. I actually got off my duff and put the DVD in and danced with Richard Simmons. Didn't do much sweatin' cause I had the heat turned down and it was a little chilly in here when I started but I was nice a warm when I finished. The DVD is an hour long but I only made it half way through and just couldn't stand huffing and puffing any more. Boy, I've got a lot of work to do to get back to where I was this summer. I actually enjoyed it and will do it again today. One of the best parts of his DVD's is that there are people up there dancing with him that are my size and what used to be my size. I've tried several others but didn't like them because the people on there could do everything perfectly and definitely didn't look like they had ever been over weight or out of shape.
He stopped about 15 minutes into it and had us take our pulse and mine was 270. Forgot to strap on the HRM but will do that today and record my accomplishments. The ouch in the title is my neck. In one of the dances he had us stretch our necks and boy did mine crack when I bent it to the side. I think I over did that one a little because my neck is really sore on one side. Funny how we don't move our neck in every day living.
I've got his second one too but won't try that one right now. It is supposed to be a little more intense and right now I just want to try to make it through the first one all the way through.
I've got some extra water run and filled up all the animal's dishes, so we are set if the power goes off. I've got a rechargable lantern but for the life of me I can't find the charger. I haven't used it since my hubby died and I don't know where he put it. So it will just have to be candles and oil lamps.
