Today is BODYCOMBAT launch. It’s the day we look forward to every 3 months or so when everybody on the BODYCOMBAT team at our gym can have a real, live, grown-up excuse to buying new, matching fitness gear and punch, kick, and yell to our hearts’ delight.
Got a load of laundry you don’t want to face?
Come to BODYCOMBAT instead and picture that stinky pile of clothes as you back-kick your stress into the next zip code.
Potty-training driving you crazy?
Come to BODYCOMBAT! It’s non-contact, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t imagine karate-chopping your way through those dirty diapers! (Just wear proper protective gear).
I mean it when I say I’d probably be a lot meaner person without BODYCOMBAT.
Some people do yoga (which I like it). Some people watch TV (and I’ve been known to do that too). Some people go shopping (you know I love me some shopping).
But for stress relief, nothing quite tops the exhilaration of beating the air to a pulp with my fists for me. Pure. Adrenaline. Rush.
(We’re going to wear purple, in case you were wondering).
Here’s our BODYPUMP team from last week’s launch (and yes, the tall, beautiful girl in the center did used to be a beauty queen and totally has the pose down; we all try to emulate it, but nobody does it like Tiffany…especially not me).
So, why all the fitness talk?
If you’re a long time 5D5W reader, then you probably remember when Move-it Monday was exclusively dedicated to feats of fitness…okay so not much “feats” (I just used that for the alliteration) as fitness tutorials, suggestions, and various other (hopefully) inspirational tidbits about working out and whatnot.
And then I got pregnant with twins.
Now, don’t get me wrong. I did not stop exercising. Oh no. I dragged my expanding self up to the gym over and over again, ad nauseum (sometimes literally) until those two little girls in that huge belly finally came out.
And I’m glad I did. It never failed that, no matter how little motivation I felt going into my workout, I always came out revived and invigorated, not to mention considerably smellier. And I have no doubt that my home delivery went considerably more smoothly because I had maintained my fitness level (if not my shape).
But at a certain point, it seemed a little bit ridiculous to be doing fitness vlogs and photo tutorials when I couldn’t see my toes, and I had a habit of turning around in the kitchen and knocking down some small child or another with my girth.
So, Move-it Monday broadened its scope and began to include other topics such as home decor tweaking and, every so often, even a completed project or two.
And I’m sure some of you breathed a big sigh of relief and starting reading my blog on Monday again. : ) And I get that.
But still. This is January—AKA: National I’m-Actually-Going-to-Make-Fitness-a-Priority-NO-I-Really-Mean-it-This-Time Month.
And I’m well aware that going to an actual gym is not necessary to be successful in a fitness regime.
So, here’s my question for you:
If I were to begin working in Move-it Monday fitness posts every so often again, what would you like to see?
Home exercises? A focus on toning? Printables? Fitness logs? Technology?
I’d love some feedback so that I can better know whether I’d just be annoying you with fitness talk, and, if not, what would best suit your needs as you work towards a healthier lifestyle/body.
So…fire away. And wish me luck tonight (or come join in on the fun if you’re local!)
I’m ready to kick it!Like what you read? Like M is for Mama on facebook (pretty please?):
