why didn't i think of this sooner?

so i have somehow motivated myself to want to start exercising again... gasp! i know, i know, i'm not sure what has come over me... but whatever it is, i guess i should listen...

so... what didn't i think of sooner? well, since we've had dvr, i've recorded er "dvr'ed" all sorts of things from curious george episodes for max, to anthony bourdain episodes for chris and i, to knitty gritty, wife swap and supernanny for myself... and war shows for chris. so, why didn't i think of dvr'ing a few yoga or aerobic shows for myself. well, i just don't know... but today, i fixed that problem. i set about 5 workouts to record. one is a 30 minute workout on the pentagon station that is performed by various military folks (we'll see how long i can hang for this one), another is a yoga show, another is a workout with gilad, and another is a workout with denise austin who chris asked if she would be wearing a leotard that made her have camel toe... nice..., and another is a workout that contains some yoga and some low impact aerobics (which frankly sounds like it's right up my alley). i plan to check them all out, and then record each new episode of the one i like the best :)

so your next question might be, well, cara, when do you suppose you'll get to these dvr'ed workouts being that you can hardly find time to eat a balanced lunch or cook dinner or do laundry on an even semi-regular basis? well, friends, i'm going to get up early! there, i said it! i'm going to get up early so that i can workout before my kids wake for the day.

i plan to start this adventure tomorrow morning. so wish me luck! i plan to keep a log of my progress so stay tuned.

Holy smokes, woman! Sooo...workout #! should be under your belt by now. Good luck to you on this! We're just trying to make an effort to eat better, which has worked in the past, so we'll see.

great goal! we're on the same page...I just ordered T-Tapp that Ask Moxie always talks about. My goal has been to get up earlier than everyone in the house. guess who beat me to it this week though...my child has been getting up insanely early and I'm so frustrated! thanks for the great idea to dvr the yoga, I can't believe I never thought to do that!

I keep thinking that I should DVR some workouts. You will have to let me know which programs you like!

Whoa! Way to go, hope you can keep it up. I feel that getting the pups for a walk with EJ strapped to my chest is the best I can do right now.
