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!

    Happy to see you are getting back. And it is a smart choice to take it slow. You'll be back to normal soon.

    So glad you're feeling better, Pixie. It was smart to ease back into working out. Backs are fickle and you don't want to mess with them.

Great job getting back to it!
