Day #7!!!!!!

I've made it! My Weekaversary!

I slept in this morning ( still adjusting to the time change) and had absolutely no time to work out this morning. All 4 kids had school today, and I had to work ( I clean house twice a week for a client).

After lunch I decided to to the Shred. I was even a little eager, I wanted to see if my endurance had improved at all.

I gave it everything I had....I jumped those jacks, kicked myself in the butt, skipped and punched..... there was also sweating, panting and gasping for air.  I was thoroughly uncomfortable, and in a small amount of pain. Then, it was over! I never would have believed that a week would make such a big difference in my strength and endurance. 

I am paying for it tonight. My knees are so sore, my thighs are wobbly going up and down stairs. My shoulders, my chest...argh.  I don't mind it though. It just means that my body is changing!  Hopefully soon I'll be able to do level 2.

Oh, and the best part! When I got dressed this morning, I was able to tighten my belt one notch tighter! 

I'm not sure if I am ever going to love this exercise thing, but I think I can learn to love how it makes me feel. Well, not this aching post workout pain I have right now , but the other things. I am more energetic during the day. I am doing housework, and not because we have company coming! I'm cheerier, and a tiny bit more patient. I'm drinking water! ( This is a big deal, I really don't like it) I wonder what I'll be writing about 7 days from now.

  1. the water thing -- weird huh?? I usually prefer my water with caffeine, sugar and carbonation...but now, I guzzle it like there's no tomorrow.
