Turbo Jam Progress Report: Week 1 of 12
Thursday, March 29, 2012
I just finished Week 1 of my 12 Week Turbo Jam schedule. (There are only four workouts this week.)
My plan is to workout in the mornings as much as possible, since that's the only real quiet time I get. (And I'm not totally wiped out like I am by the end of the day.) I also resolved to roll with whatever schedule changes come up. I was immediately tested on that.
On Monday (my very first workout day!), my daughter woke up at 5:30 a.m. She NEVER wakes up this early! We played until it was time to get ready for work and child care. Monday is also our busiest day of the week, and we're on the go well into the evening. I was soooo tired, but I did my workout when she went to bed.
On Wednesday, I slept straight through my alarm. I don't remember it going off, but I guess I heard it on some level because I kept hitting the snooze button.
I wasn't even conscious enough to talk myself in to getting up. So again, I moved my workout to the evening.
The workouts are going well. I love that I'm a little sore all over, because it means that my body is waking up after being asleep for so many years! After not doing Turbo Jam for almost six years, the routines I've done so far have come right back to me, which speeds up the learning curve a little.
So at the end of this week, I'm encouraged by the way I feel, and even how tired I am. I'm also very proud of myself for ditching my all or nothing thinking, and not giving up when my day didn't go exactly as planned. I have a long way to go, but I have one strong week behind me.
