Didn't want to...but did!

Monday, July 25, 2011

So I did take Sunday as a rest day, which felt nice on my sore limbs...But man was it hard to push play on the DVD player today! I really think that taking the day off made it more difficult to get the motivation to do it today...I do love how I feel when I am done working out, but geesh I forgot the feeling in one day! I almost had myself convinced that I like being lazy more than I like the feeling after working out! emoticon But dern it I made myself workout and I am glad I did. I really think that taking yesterday off made my legs feel more tired, I could barely move my legs during today's workout! I think the sluggish legs lent to a little too much impact on the knees, so I am hoping I will feel good as new tomorrow with no sore knees!

So, lesson learned...don't let your day off turn to a week off!

And's workout was tough, even though I did it last let you know how tough, listen to this...during the video Shaun T asks a participant how she feels--her response "like Sh*t" and let me tell you...that's the truth!!

On a emoticon crummy note, no weight loss this week! I know I should focus more on inches and how I feel, but I was hoping for weight loss! I mean, I've made so many great changes that I have to lose some weight! I know I know it's only been a week, I will keep waiting! I am hoping my body is in shock since I haven't worked out like this in....well never! My only set back will be out trip out of town this weekend. Sunday is luckily my day off but I need recommendations for Saturday (we won't be home at all), do you think I should double up on Thursday or Friday to do my Saturday workout or should I just skip a day and alter my workout calendar and keep going when we get back??? Hmmm...

    Great job getting that workout in today!!! You're right, it's so easy to let a day off turn into a week off but way to go not letting that happen! Don't worry about the weight loss, it's only been one week and I bet your body is going WTF are you doing to me??? After that initial shock I bet it'll be melting away! :)

    Hmm...sorry I can't be too helpful on the recommendation since I'm not that familiar with the program. Do you think it would be hard on your body to double up? That sounds like a good option, but if that is going to destroy your knees or something and make it harder to be able to do it again after the rest day then you may just be better off skipping one day? Sorry I can't be more helpful!
