So what if it's not perfect? Plus a sort of update on day 3 of the 14 day workout plan

So, I am on this 14 day workout plan. I got up early, I had my clothes ready, and I put the DVD in the player. It started OK, but it wouldn't play a whole chapter (might be a weird conflict between the DVD and DVD player, since it works fine in my newer DVD player). My options? Well, at the very early hour, I didn't have a chance to try it in another room since everyone else was sleeping. So I decided to substitute a different, slightly shorter Jessica Smith workout. (And I love this one - I've done it before and probably reviewed it here. :)

But 10 minutes in, my TV turns itself off! It does that sometimes, unfortunately. I'm starting to get fed up, but I decided I needed to at least try to complete my workout. I picked up my phone and found the video on YouTube and finished it.

Later in the day, as I folded clothes, I played that DVD on my other player, and it worked fine. I walked to the beat of the DVD as best I could, and felt good about getting more steps in.

So life didn't go according to plan. So I had to find a way to adapt to the circumstances and figure something else out. You know what? It's OK. So what if it's not perfect? I did something today that worked towards my goal, and I am happy about that.

Sidenote - what I did see from Jessica's Walking for Weight Loss, Wellness & Energy DVD (affiliate link) was really good! She puts a lot of thought into each workout, even free ones, but I do feel like her DVDs are a little something extra special. I'm looking forward to actually completing the workout sometime.
