Day 4

Thursday, May 23, 2013

Yesterday went better than the day before (sigh of relief). It was a little easier to stick with the plan, without feeling overwhelmed with the newness of everything. And I really did hit every goal, yesterday, including getting the strength training in.

I am more out of shape than I realized. I was looking at the strength training moves (Spark Solution) and rolling my eyes at how basic the moves were. 2 years ago, this would have been a warm-up for me. But yesterday? It kicked my ass. Really. I barely made it through the second set. Which horrified my inner fitness snob. How could I have slid that far backwards in so little time...?

Fitness snob is officially no more. I embrace right where I'm at, which feels very much the bottom of food chain. I have a long way to go to get back to where I once was.

I woke up this morning and it hurt to roll over. It hurt to stand. It hurt to sit. It hurt to change my daughter's diaper. This reminds me of how I used to feel the day after an intense kickboxing workout.

But I did it. And I'm gonna do it again tomorrow. And I'm gonna keep doing it until it feels like a boring old warm-up.

What I LOVE? All of the right muscles are hurting. That's progress!
