Where's the movie music?
Tuesday, September 27, 2011
When I watch a movie where the main character needs to get in shape that lasts about 4-5 minutes... kind of the Chariots of Fire music... and miraculously, the person is perfectly in shape by the end of the song. This is also used when a group goes to renovate an old broken down house... it also only takes 4-5
minutes, and wala... it's done!
I do have music when I exercise (with the chair dancing video)... and it's 35 minutes,
not just 4-5, but that miracle doesn't happen in my living room... all that happens is that my pulse is a little higher. If I do lose a pound or inch, it's not visible after the 35 minutes... oh, and in reality, the chair tap dancing, can-can, etc music doesn't end in 4-5, or even after the 35 minutes...
it's with me for days... in my subconscious...
My hubby laughs when I quote from the video "say NO to inactivity! say NO to _____(ok- I don't remember all the words... just enough to make it irritating to not know what comes next!). I probably need to ask for exercise dvd's for Christmas, eh?... I guess that will really show if I'm serious about this, that I'm willing to give up candles for exercise dvds and elastic exercise bands...
Wish it happened like the movies... but, alas, it doesn't. So, I spend my 35 minutes
a day (or at least I'm working toward every day), in faith that the right choices today will pay off in the long run.
