I am sore after completing my Day One workout. I'm not sure if it was from the video or from the additional exercises - probably a combination of both. In addition to the 10 minute video, I did
30 crunches w/ twist
30 leg abductions
20 push-ups (modified)
superman hold (3 x 15 second) - which is much more difficult that it looks!!
So far so good. Day Two is tonight. Looks like alot of leg again - but that's okay, my thighs definately need it.
I'll have to dig deep for the motivation tonight. After work I have lots on my plate for the kids - I've got errands to run, then softball game, followed by flute lessons. I am not a fan of working out at 9pm.

I feel good. I feel lousy. I am getting back into the running thing because I've been stuck at 162 for 6 months and counting. I suppose it's Good that I feel Lousy enough to do something about it!!
I was running 5-6 x's a week when I first joined SP back in October. I dropped my first 10 lbs in a month. Then I plateaued. Then came the holidays. Now here I am seriously getting back into the swing of things. My body has maintained this weight for quite some time now. Enough time...too much time! Time to do something about it!! I'm tired of not being able to wear most of the clothes in my closet because they still don't fit. They still don't fit.
I am in the early stages of the c25k plan and I find myself wanting to run more than just 3xs a week as suggested by the program. I want to get there and I want to get there now.
Just keep with the program. Even though I was running before, I wasn't running three miles straight. I would love to reach that point. Can't even begin to imagine having the stamina to run three miles straight.
Just stick with it! The Benefits will come...just be patient!!

Where did it go?? I joined SP October of 2007 extremely motivated and dropped a fast 10 lbs by Christmas. At the time it seemed easy - my resistance to bad foods was incredible! My eating habits were phenominal - no fatty foods, processed meats, unhealthy snacks and nighttime munching was non-existant. I was up at 4:00am every morning to get on the treadmill, burning calories like crazy...it was SOOOOO easy and I felt great!!
But I look back now and I realize that it took alot of hard work. How did I do it? Where did that motivation come from? Why can't I get it back? I have great intentions - every day I do. But they just get fizzled out at day's end after working, making dinners, softball games, grocery store runs, band practice and all the other crap that is necessary throughout the week.
I don't know....I gotta dig deep though. Something's gotta give.
What does my tagline say????
There are only as many days in the year as you make use of.
GOOD ADVICE FOR ME AT THE MOMENT!!!
