Week 2 Day 3: Strength-training soreness. YES!!!
Thursday, December 13, 2012
Had another pretty good day today! I woke up to gray and totally did not want to get out of bed. Once I did though, I realized just how SORE my upper body was. But I knew it was from a good solid strength-training session and somehow the soreness didn't seem to bother me so much. At least not until Zumba and that darn song the teacher uses to focus on toning arms... I'm determined to keep up the strength-training though! Hopefully my arms won't be super sore tomorrow.
Being sore actually reminded me of the time when I was a little girl and learning how to ride a bike. After the first time I fell off, I started crying (and I'm sure complaining that I didn't want to get back on) when my mother yelled across the street to me, "Of COURSE you fell off your bike! You're supposed to-that means you're learning!" I mean-of COURSE I'm sore. I'm starting to strength-train-that means it's working. Right...?
Anyway, did pretty well eating-wise (I just KNEW I was going to go over my sodium, but that's okay) and got in some more cardio. And remembered my vitamins-woohoo!
