Working out again!


Monday, January 28, 2013




Today is day 31 of my streak!

I was sidetracked by back pain last week....unable to workout since Wednesday afternoon! I did some stretches, but that was it. I sure did miss being able to do my regular workouts, but I knew that if I pushed myself to do them in spite of the pain, it would just make things worse. So even though my back was starting to feel better by Saturday, I made myself wait until today before I resumed working out.

It felt great to get up this morning and put on my "warrior gear" (as I call my workout clothes) and head into the living room to start my day with Zumba! But boy, missing those few days of working out has made a big difference! I was out of breath so quickly! I managed to do a 20 minute Zumba workout but I was exhausted at the end of it!

After lunch, I did my core strength workout, but only 15 minutes instead of my usual 30 to 45 minutes, because I don't want to overdo it on my first day back. Tonight I will do my DDP Yoga workout, which is my favorite workout of the day.

I'm so happy that I am able to workout again....I really missed it! Thank you to all my dear Spark friends who kept me in prayer for my back pain!

Have a great day!

    I haven't worked out the last 2 days because I'm all stopped up and yucky. Everytime I get my heart rate up I start coughing and if I bend over I get dizzy, so I'll be trying to watch the calories and waiting a few days before working out too. Great job getting back to it! emoticon

    Glad that your back is better. Don't over do yourself. I'm so impressed with the amount of exercise you do. It shows that you have formed new healthy habits that will last a lifetime.
That is the healthy way to do it. Continued success.

    I'd say some good strong habits have been formed in your workouts! It just had to feel great to "miss" them --- something you probably never thought you'd say back on those first days of starting your exercising program --- WTG and carry on . . . . . . .

    Glad your back is better. I have the same problem at times. Not always sure what makes it get bad again.
Do you have a good Zumba tape you can recommend? I'd like to try it.

    I know it was good for you to take a few days to heal, but I DON'T know how you stood it. I decided to take my 'day off' for the 1st time in a couple of weeks yesterday. I did the treadmill for 10 mins. so I could keep my streak. I was worn out last night, so glad today is here so I can go back to 'normal'!
