Day 261: Not So All-Star Workouts

Day 261's thing I've never done before was to complete an exercise class on Fit TV from start to finish.

The class was All Star Workouts. I'd seen it advertised as a class with the, "hottest teachers," teaching, "cutting-edge dance moves." The peppy people in the commercials made the classes look exciting and energetic. I expected the instructors to be one of Justin Timberlake or Madonna's back-up dancers, and that I'd be learning some hot new routine that had never been seen before.

Instead, the class was ballet fundamentals.

It was boring. I barely broke a sweat.

But I can honestly say, I did the whole class without stopping. I exercised through the commercial breaks and even completed the stretch at the end. Which is far more than I had ever done before on an at-home workout.

Fitness week was off to a solid start.
