Day 18 of 90 to Better Fitness

I finally did it! Did what you may ask, I finally did the four hours of exercise in one day. That was probably the hardest thing I have ever done. What was so difficult about it? Well, I had to come up with enough exercise DVDs that would fill that time period. You are probably thinking why didn't you just do 4exercises that lasted an hour. Smart thinking! Although I have a lot of exercise dvds many of them only run for 30 mins and honestly I do not really like doing long workout dvds because I get bored easily. So I had to find exercises that were fun and had length. Also the last hour I just wanted something that wasn't too strenuous, I thought yoga was a good option but I was wrong! I only made it through 26mins then I had to find something else. 

Another obstacle I came across was actually fitting the 4hrs into my day. I really didn't think this would have been a problem at first especially since I was home for most of the day, but I found out that I prefer exercising in the evenings more than I do in the mornings. I have more energy in the evenings. So instead of having about 12hours to exercise in I only had about 6. (from 5pm to 11pm) Then I realized that because I only had 6hours it would probably be best for me to do four straight hours of exercise! I couldn't break it up into segments because once I stopped it was hard for me to get back into exercising because I would get tired and unmotivated. 

What exercises did I do to complete my four hours? (In no particular order)

1, Walk Away the Pounds Fat Burning Walk 5 Miles: 1hr 07mins
2. Turbo Fire HIIT 15: 16mins
3. Zumba Cardio Party: 50mins
4. Biggest Loser Yoga: 26mins, This is actually an hour but it was way too painful, I could only push through 26mins of it
5. Walk Away the Pounds 2mile Walk: 35mins
6. Turbo Jam Cardio Party Mix 3: 50mins

Total: 4hrs 4mins

Would I do it again? 

Probably not consciously. Doing this although it was challenging it felt more like a chore. On the other hand I did kind of enjoy it. So I guess only time will tell if I do it again. 


  1. Awesome! I only just wished you good luck on another post but obviously you didn't need it!!! This proves that you're crazy and doing brilliant LOL.

    Well done Shannie!!

  2. Thanks Tim It was hella Crazy! I am toying with the idea of doing 6hrs one day next week but we will see. For some reason setting a number of hours is really motivational for me right. I am quite competitive when I let myself be it.
