Renewal

Tuesday, June 19, 2012

Today will be about going back to basics.

Back to ensuring I drink enough water. Wearing my pedometer. Walking at lunch today. Workout in the evening.

Trying Something New

Sunday, June 17, 2012

Today I tried something new- something I thought was for 'fit people'. I went with some co-workers to Santa Monica Pier and we did interval training on sand.

I felt so good during the work out- to have my body answer in performance to the demands of my ego was a quiet victory during my work out. The fellas I was with who are 10 years younger were doubled over after the short running. I felt light on the sand! Me-- feeling light, as the muscles responded.

What a fantastic way to start the day.... except for the piss smell in the parking lot, of course.

  


Non-Numbers Rewards

Thursday, June 14, 2012

Ya know, what your husband says- "Hey, I can really see your hips and thighs shrinking", you can be sure I woke up feeling fabulous.

Had three co-workers notice my efforts this week.

Jumped rope for longer than I ever had (okay, it was only five minutes straight without stopping).

Will be running with co-workers at the beach this weekend.

Loving it!

Cardio Difference

Wednesday, June 13, 2012

Yesterday I noted the cardio improvement by leaps and bounds. As part of my warm up for the boxing/weights cardio class, we can either run the perimeter, or jump rope.

I jumped rope for 5 minutes straight without feeling labored. I quickly broke an sweat and my heart rate was elevated, but I can only describe it as if the blood flowing through my veins was flowing through smooth glass tubes, not tumbling and struggling over rocks.

I felt like a well oiled machine.

    After being a couch potato for 30 years. Exercising feels great. I actually feel bad if I miss a day. emoticon
