|Jeff Jamison & I, hoping we'll look like Flat Stanley soon!|
In 12 weeks, you can be the judge.
That's when my weather anchor Jeff Jamison and I will compare the results of our exercise programs. I started mine Monday; Jeff started after the holidays. (For the record I will NOT be posting before and after pictures. I am way too shy for that!)
Here's the deal: the 36-year-old husband and father of two totally inspired me with his commitment to the Insanity high-intensity, cardio workout. He simply declared one day, "Tracy, I'm going to start doing Insanity. I ordered the dvds this weekend."
And then he just did it. He's been waking up at 5:30am and hasn't missed a day since, even while filling in on the morning show. No excuses.
Last week he mentioned one of the guys featured in his dvds has his own fitness business in Fort Worth. "We should do a story in May, Tracy. You can come to class with me."
His experience made me realize I haven't challenged myself physically with anything new in many, many years. I've worked out regularly my entire life and even got on a Zumba kick last year. But around last November the balls of my feet hurt so badly, I could barely walk through the newsroom, let alone dance on my toes for an hour or two.
