Slim in 6, Week 2, Day 5 DONE!
My glutes felt really good today, so good I actually FINISHED the butt crunches on Ramp it Up. YES!! After the cooldown, the pain was in my hips, but a hot shower and a short soak does seem to help immensely. I think, or rather wonder, if it is my body just basically reacting and I'm being a wimpy wimpy wimpy?
Probably. This IS the first time in oh, 40 years I've ever had to or wanted to exercise so my body could be in shock.
Anyway, there's my 3 points..LOL

hope I didn't do any damage. I had pulled a glute muscle in the 1st week, and I've been careful since, but then...today...even as I was careful. Now it's spreading to my hips. OW!
I should have known better. I was already tired before I even pushed play, but I just had to. I HAVE to push play! I'm not giving up, not until I'm in shape or bed ridden...Grrrrrrrr.
Now my hips and bum hurt. . . and it's not dropping me to the floor like the first time, but it's warning me. It's yelling at me. I should probably have it looked at with my shins. Yea, stupid body....that's probably why it's mad at me. I was doing the leg kicks and screaming at the walls "I HATE MY BODY, I HATE EVERYTHING ABOUT IT, DIE AND GO AWAY!! DIE WITH THE STUPID SCALE!" It didn't die, it just got pissed off.
What? So I screamed at the wall. No one was home and I needed the push. It sort of worked...I almsot finished without a break. I'm assuming by the time I get to Burn it Up, it is going to make Ramp it Up look like a cake walk game. The forms....she is always saying to check my form...how? Gosh, I hope I didn't damage myself due to bad form. That WOULD be bad form.
Week 2, Day 4 (Slim in 6)

Week 2, Day 2...done.
I found today as I was working out that the routine was getting pretty..routine. I liked it. I like knowing what to expect next and which form to get ready for. I like seeing the improvements from yesterday and pushing for tomorrow. 18 push-ups yesterday equals 19 today. I hope I keep on liking it. It does seem to make the time go faster when I know what to expect. Kind of like a car ride; on the way back home always seems shorter than the ride there.
The only unusuals to today's routine was a) I was tired. I mean, I was tired before I even got started. But, I pushed play and I do feel better. b) I was sweaty! I know that's not a topic I like to hear about, and it's not like I didn't sweat the first week, but for as tired as I was, and as routine as I thought it was, I must have put a lot of effort into it today....except for the bums. I was still real careful with that section. Which really stinks because that is the main section I need work on. I'm tired of putting a sheet over it so people can watch a movie. (okay, old & tasteless joke, but what the hell....it's my blog....and my bum for that matter)
Everytime I am done and shower I look in the mirror. Hoping, waiting...is there a difference today? Do my abs look any less like jello'd cottage cheese? The biggest delimma I have seen to "slim in 6" and "p90" and things that give a date is that it is truly an endless Christmas present waiting to be unwrapped!! I suppose if you add sugar to that lemon one could say it's not a delimma, but a treat..in ONLY 4.5 more weeks I should see a difference!! I hope, I hope I hope I hope!!
But doubt is hidden in there.....I'm not giving up..no no no no.
I just wnder...
should I do more?
Can I do more?
What if my body doesn't respond to exercise? It's never responded to diet. What if I am a mutant form of fat cells that are destined to jiggle with me ... FOREVER!!
then I guess I need to find a new angle at this:
Do it for health reasons....I am getting more balanced and limber.
Do it for fun! Yep, kind of like your friends forcing you to go out with them...you don't want to until you do it.....then it was so much fun, you wonder why you hesitated.
You're setting an example and don't even know it. I'm sure of it.
I'll have to think of more...but basically...I just have to remember that there are more than getting slim reasons. It may be the reason I WANT, but it's not the ONLY reason. And maybe, eventually my mutuant form of cellulite will leave on their own. Maybe they won't want to see me running down a dream, let alone the block and flee to some poor skinny skeletal person waiting to gain weight. :o) Maybe then I can pull out my sexy lingerie. Oooooh, or my 80s dress that patiently awaits me in the closet! Oh and to wear high heels again!! maybe maybe maybe!! YES~
I gotta find some more workouts to do...maybe go do abs now...yes, abs.

Today marks Week 2, Day 1 of Slim in 6. I put my little gold star on the wall.
I am still kind of stunned. I THOUGHT it would really hurt today as:
1) it's a Monday after a rest day
2) my bum still tender
3) it's Ramp It UP!!
But no, I went through the hour pretty okay. I didn't topple over, my balance is improving and AND....I actualy am up to 18 push ups. On THESE measly things I call arms.
I took it easy on the leg "presses" that entail lifting your legs in the air as I am still rather tender in that area. But, again...before I knew it, the hour was up. Just like that! I actually looked around and thought "maybe I should do the Wii, the abs.."
something...I want more!
I think I'm starting to become really obsessed with this. It's getting to where I wonder how far I can push.
But, until my family sees results, until I see the results I will jsut keep pushing play.
