Default Working out in front of family

Up until now, I've always done my DVD workouts after my husband went to work and my daughter was sleeping in the morning. I've been having a major breakthrough lately - I'm able to do my workouts while they're home and not feel self-conscious about it. I'm not focusing on how silly I might loo, but rather feeling proud and thankful that I'm getting fitter and making the choice to exercise!

Just wanted to crow a little!

I guess we went through the same thing today. I never work out on the weekends or Holiday's because my hubby (to be) is here and I feel embarrassed. Today i decided that I'd get some cardio in while he was mowing the lawn, but he kept coming in to get a drink of water, and at first I was embarrassed, but then I was proud of myself because I know he is proud of me and I am doing so well. I told him he could come in and take a break if he needed to because I didn't mind. He comented on the fact that one day I might even get paid for what I was doing, hehe!

I know what you mean... although it might take me a little while to feel that I can work out in the same room as my family. But I hope to reach that place where I feel comfortable enough, some day.

I drag my DH along with me to do plyo in the park. He actually likes it.

I know what you mean though - I always felt silly doing step or aerobics in front of him. If I do something on the stability ball in front of him, I'm laible to get more exercise than I asked for!

So good for all of you!!

I am not at that stage yet... I still feel so self-conscious.
I do my weights video in the morning. I try to start it while my roommate is still asleep and then he goes and takes the dog for a walk. But he always seems to come home when I am doing some embarrassing part like working on my butt And of course he always stands there and tries to have a conversation - haha

You're allowed to be proud of that! that's great! I hope you don't have the limited space that I have, my guys have to move -v-e-r-y carefully around me so I don't accidentally whack 'em with a weight

I don't worry about whacking my people family, it's the pets! The kitties like to grab my pony tail when I do sit-ups, giving me some added resistnace! LOL! and my dog thinks it's playtime and keeps throwing his toys at me and licking the sweat off my arms and legs. He's such a pain sometimes! LOL!

I'm feeling you all on that! It took me a while to work out in front of my husband. I used to do Yourself Fitness! on my hubbys x-box, which is such a great program, but once i reallly got into i just quit caring and was excited that i was seeing results! good luck to you all!!!

I think this is fantastic for you because I've been w/my DH for 17 yrs and I still can't work out in front of him.
