I smite thee Billy Blanks!

I had a bit of a rough night - one of my twin critters decided our room was the party room at 2am this morning and ended up in our bed - lovely. She is not the most pleasant person to sleep with and - for a 5 year old - she can take up the same amount of space in our bed as a large Great Dane. Ahhhh....so comfortable.

What does this have to do with the price of Juicy Fruit at the Piggly Wiggly (remember, I'm from the South y'all)?

Well, the alarm went off this morning and I just couldn't drag my butt out of bed early enough to make it to the gym. I did eventually get up, but knew I couldn't make it to the gym and back before my hubby had to head to work. Dang it! So I decided to dust off one of my old workout DVD's - specifically a Tae Bo DVD. Billy Blanks at his best.

I popped the DVD in the DVD player and that's when it happened. To put it bluntly - Billy kicked my ass! I haven't done that DVD in months, but have been working out regularly at a rather high intensity level for quite some time now. I thought I would - for sure - be able to handle his workout without any problems. I made it through, but I am already sore through my shoulders and butt.

Hmmmm...I may have to reconsider my workout routine and start including Billy and his evil roundhouse kicks into my weekly schedule. Maybe if I just pretend I am kicking Billy in the face....that would probably make me feel better.

Awesome! You've inspired me to find my Tae Bo DVD from years ago and dust it off too! Nothing like a good butt kicking to get you going!

Ohhhh! Sounds good! I may have to give Billy a try!
