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.

I did my Day 6 of Slim in 6 yesterday. I sweated it out and gave myself a pat on the back. Yeay for me it's rest day today!
Except, I bent over to pick something up today and "pop" a muscle in my bum pops out. It hurts sooo bad that I didn't know whether to laugh or cry, so I did both!
Anyone ever come across this? How am I supposed to do tomorrow? Oh Me Goodness. Honestly, the only thing I can think of is to keep working it out...I've never heard of stretches for bums though. Then again, I can't walk around holding mine all day either.

I'm on Day 4 of the Slim in 6 program and I love the thought that I am doing this with a few other Sparkers. We have all been doing the "Start it Up" program and I thought, "I'm going to try the Ramp it Up." Ramp it Up is a longer version of Start it Up (from 30 min to 50) and contains resistance.
I'm pretty proud of myself. This girl (that' s me) the one who can't do a push up can do 10-12!! Okay so my arms feel like wet noodles right about now, but I feel GOOD!! I feel like I could run a marathon, or jump to the moon or something.
I still fall over at the lunges. I topple like cow tipping. But, Debbie (coach thingie) says it will get better...
Kids are home...time to shower, homework, dinner, and then?? hmmm clean? LOL Oh, I can't WAIT to do it again tomorrow! How crazy is THAT?!?

Normally I laugh at the challenge of 8 hours a night. I can do three nights worth in one!!
But, not tonight.
I need to sleep as tomorrow I resume my C25, begin Slim in 6, and back to school for the kiddos and myself.
Tomorrow life resumes.
or wait, that would be today.
I "forgot" the 1st was on a Friday. I am a Monday gal so everything starts today for me...there are a lot of new Sparkers on here!
I'm tired and have to get up in two hours....
I'm going to go find something....some blueberries? water? I dunno..... I'm tired, hungry and rambling....
did I already say that? fudge....no, I meant that as a swear word, not as food. LOL
eh, there's my 3 points today :o)
and it's 2:36 am
