Today has been a day of infinite torture. Last weekend I realized that I had some points accrued on my Amazon Rewards credit card, which I had the option to apply to an Amazon purchase. Those points were just burning a hole in my pocket so I decided to put them towards a few new workout videos. And by a few I mean 9- don't judge. Once I started shopping I saw how many different Firm videos there are that I don't own and I spent probably an hour reading reviews and picking out ones that I thought would complement my existing collection. And, as I mentioned before, I wanted to get the rest of Jackie Warner's workout DVD's since I like 30 Day Fast Start so much. So before I knew it I had picked out 9 DVD's and to try and narrow it down to less probably would have taken another hour.
On Saturday I did the "Burn and Shape" workout from The Firm's Ultimate Fat-Burning Collection, which is only $5 on Amazon for four 45-minute workouts on one DVD. Talk about a bargain! They don't require much space or any equipment except for dumbbells, so if you're short on workout room and money this is a great value. I really liked the workout, but I didn't feel too overly challenged by it so I was surprised when I woke up yesterday and my whole lower body was on fire.
Then to make matters worse, yesterday I did a quick cardio workout followed by the standing portion of Jackie Warner's Crunch-Free Xtreme Abs. Again, at the time I didn't feel like it was that difficult of an ab workout but today it feels like somebody tore open my obliques and put little shards of glass inside. They are even hurting right now as I sit on the couch and type this post- yowza.
