I have been a cardio exerciser. Now, I am adding in some strength videos by Nicole. I am surprised how well I can keep up. And, I am sure every other person on he planet would say, "You call that keeping up?"
Yes. Because now, I participate, instead of just watching. I actually lift 3 pound weights, instead of my empty hands. I will not pretend I am doing pushups, but I am having my knees and hands in contact with the floor, and not my belly. (And getting up without climbing up the wall.) My elbows do bend a little, and straighten a little. I do the stretches at the end, though I am not as flexible as Nicole. One thing I am learning is when to inhale, when to exhale.
I know I am doing this closer to bedtime than recommended, but my day gets away from me, and I am trying to keep up with many challenges at once. Perhaps I overcommitted?
The hardest for me is still the 8 cups of water. Can we count the water absorbed through my skin in the bathtub? Oh well. I tried.
