Since I had no clue how to do a workout I looked at several videos of Nichole's, chose some strengthening exercises and completed 30 minutes.
I had purchased the introductory set with the pedometer, ball and resistance bands. I inflated the ball, which I thought was a workout in itself! And it sat in my living room staring at me for 2 days!
Ok, so Saturday morning when the hubby was out playing golf I made up my mind that it was now or never. I printed off my chosen routine and got to work. I then learned several things.
The stability ball is hard!. Might be a little too hard until I strengthen up a bit.
Also, as I feared, I had quite a bit of pain on the floor...second lesson learned---get a mat!.
I found I really like the resistance bands, alot.
And I SWEATED! I will just have to get used to that...not real fond of it yet.
I bumbled around a lot, had some real muscle burn but figured that was cool.
The only real negative was when I was done with the stretching I was pretty nauseated, felt a little bad for about 30 min.
Afterward it was WOO HOO!!!!!! I felt energized all day.
As a next day follow-up, I'm not a sore as I thought I would be. Only my shoulders and upper arms a little. I would say either I did pretty good or I didn't do them right. I want to think I did them right. We'll see.
I am still a little intimidated but with a few changes in strategy this may be good.
Now to figure out how to do cardio at home with this bad foot. Can't run, walk up inclines etc. Still trying to figure that one.
