Ouch. I did the "Shred" dvd again this morning, and it's a minor miracle that I am able to type wright now. When my alarm went off this morning, I didn't move any further than I had to, just hit the snooze. While I was laying there, I took stock. Head felt good, neck was a little sore...the rest of me was pretty stiff. I rolled out of bed, feet were throbbing and knees were screaming at me.
Hubby was an angel and drove the kids to school for me, and I got ready for battle. I skipped the foot wraps today, they didn't help yesterday during the workout, but put on the knee braces again. At this point, I still wasn't sure I was going to be able to get through the warm up, never mind all 20 minutes.
While the intro was rolling on the TV ( can't skip it), something occurred to me. I always give myself an "out" when I get on these fitness kicks.Usually it's the pain in my knees ( which can be pretty bad), my sore feet, housework, kids, I'm tired....the list could go on, but I'll quit here. Not today. I did the jumping jacks, the butt kicks, the skipping. I stopped a couple of times to catch by breath, but no more than the 5 seconds that Jillian says you can have. It was hard, and I may have cursed at Jillian more than a few times, out loud ( Sihdney is at school today), but I DID IT! Maybe not a huge deal for real fitness folks, but it was pretty big for me. :o)
