What did I do?

In yet another “Do all the things you really want to do, no matter how scary and/or absurd they seem to other people” move that I am getting really, really good at these last few months, I finally committed to a  program I have been wanting to try for a long time.

Like, a super incredible long time.  I first stumbled on the folks over at GMB Fitness when I was looking for hip stretches on youtube.   I’ve had hip issues since I had my first child six years ago.  I have an amazing chiropractor who helps immensely, but there’s still a lot of weakness and I’m always really tight through my hips and groin.

I was impressed by their programming, but even moreso by how fun it looked.  You know I’m a huge fan of play, I don’t shy away from my weirdness!  I firmly believe that adults should have fun alongside the kids at the playground, and we all know there’s never been a mud puddle I could resist.

So as I clicked through the videos, I was like, “YES! I NEED TO DO THIS!”

But I’m a mom, and at the time I couldn’t justify spending the time or money on something that was so selfish.  HA!  By couldn’t, of course, I mean wouldn’t.   I struggled with investing in myself, in acting on what I desired, in spending money on something that wasn’t for the house or the kids.

And then I made the biggest, bravest, scariest decision of my life.

And now all of these other things, all these 37 Before 37 goals, they seem easy.  They seem fun, and important, and absolutely worth investing in because I AM worth investing in because I’m fun and important.  Ya know?

So what is the GMB Fitness Elements Program?  I don’t really follow because you’ve been rambling, Michelle.

Right?  I do that, don’t I?

Elements is an 8-week online training program that uses locomotive exercises and targeted mobility work to build your strength, flexibility, and motor control.

The program focuses on 3 movements, The Bear, The Monkey, and The Frogger.  (Click the links to view videos of the movements)

They look fun, right?

Fun and intimidating.  I’m like an eighty-seven year old with hip issues and like no mobility, remember?

The program includes a 45 day money back guarantee, and multiple times says that it’s open to ALL fitness levels.

So am I scared? A bit.  But I’m crazy pumped to start tomorrow and take the assessment!

Will you all do me a huge favor and randomly scold me into actually committing to the program?  Some Suggestions:

Growl at me, throw bananas at me (I almost said feces because monkey, but eww, no!) make croaking Bud-Wise-Er sounds in my general direction, or just flat out tell me to not be a lazy ass.

I’m so grateful for all of your love and support through all of my crazy ideas!  I can’t wait to share the results of this program with you all.  Love love, kiss kiss!
