Making progress

Saturday, March 25, 2017

In the last week I have done 4 bootcamps and 1 hour of personal training. I am sore for sure, but I earned that soreness. I am pretty excited about the motivation and hope it continues. I am worried about my knee feeling sore. Today I will rest and ice it and hope for the best.

Lesson learned...listen to your body. Soreness is expected, but sometimes it can be more serious. Trying to get oneself into shape isn't good if there is injury incurred while training.

    You are so right to be careful. Don't hesitate to take more than one day off. I myself chose to ignore that I was wrenching my knee and paid the price of being knocked off of it for months, all because I was so excited to be making progress and was motivated. So channel that energy into other forms of exercise for the next few days. Remember when you're tearing down muscles by a lot of exercise you must allow them to repair themselves so that you can continue to get stronger. Also, you really can't exercise out of a weight problem, weight loss is 70% diet, 30% exercise. So focus on educating yourself on what is healthy for you diet wise. This may even require determining if you've acquired food allergies over your lifetime. It happened to me and modifying my diet to face my reality is making all the difference. From my all time weight I've lost over 50 lbs and am still losing. This time I really don't think it will come back because I've learned so much about how to heal my body and how to eat and live. Great job on your efforts. Keep it up!

    Yes! There is a good sore and a bad sore. I hope your knee feels better soon!
