Do you know what happens when you start to get stronger and then you stop working out for awhile?
NOTHING, ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.
I finally got off my tushy. I decided it was time to get moving as the Biggest Loser's new slogan states. I THOUGHT I could just pick up right where I left off. Week 4 of C25. I THOUGHT by doing Week 1 I could just "breeze" right threw it.
I was wrooooong.
Not only did I NOT breeze through it, I ended up walking most of the way.
I started off with Week 1 Day 1 of C25 to get myself back into it. I began the 5 minute warm up and thought "golly geeze this is.....this is......HARD!"
I came home after 10 minutes calves cramping. Of course it didn't help that I had my broken purse wrapped around my neck and my nightie underneath my jacket. Guess I could've been a bit more prepared.
I came home and was about to give up when I started reading Spark Blogs. I read notes from my friend basically saying "get moving" and a blog about a person who kept trying to work out even though her power kept going out and frustrating days and I thought, "no.....I need to redo this"
So, I'm back on Day 1.................again.
Day 1 of C25
Day 1 of my DVDs
Day 1 on my scale
Day 1 on resetting my mind
I went back out again. This time I set my mind to just a walk up to Target. I would buy me a fanny pack. I made it almost there calves a blazing when I turned around. I don't know WHY I did, but I kept getting this stitch. It wasn't painful just annoying. Like my skin was trying to rip open on my belly.
That was another 17 minutes.
But even though I'm slightly bummed at how desperately out of shape I am this just screams in my mind no more excuses! I HAVE to make time for this if I want it.
I have to WANT this. and I do. I've GOT to get a plan going and stick to it. I have got to quit this "starting over" period.
Tonight I'm going to throw in a DVD (probably Jillians 30 day shred) and get my strength back up.
so that I can be rid of Day 1 forever.
I just love this one....
and this one is so true for me...
