I only finished two circuits today- for some reason, even though I was feeling the burn that I normally do, it felt too easy. I’ve realized that this plan really isn’t for me. (shocking, right?)
Actually, I’m shocking myself by just writing this. I have no idea what just happened- I just quit in the middle of a workout. What am I doing right now? ugh ugh ugh.
No. I won’t let this weird mental stumble stop me. I’m starting again tomorrow- I think this time I’m going to focus more on cardio with a bit of toning instead of the other way around.
I can do it. I know I can do it. I’m strong.
suuuuuuuuper proud today! i did the entire thing with weights! yes, i was lagging behind jillian during the side lunges, but i’m so happy with my progress! i’m already seeing huge changes in my endurance.
off to go eat a BLT with real mayo… i’m expecting to not have another one of these for a while, so i’ll cherish it :-)
it’s crazy how much easier it’s gotten! today i did all of the side lunges w/ anterior raises WITH my 3 lb weights (i was moving more slowly than the video, but it’s still a huge accomplishment)!! next steps are to:
i think i’ll make it to goal #2 tomorrow. now it’s time to go drink some well deserved chocolate milk :-)
i’m a little achy and my head hurts, but i’m ready to kick ass today.
it hasn’t gotten any easier, because i keep challenging myself to do more with the weights/ not used the modified moves. but, today i got through all of the push ups without stopping or even thinking about how difficult they were! little improvements make me happy :-) by day 10, i’ll be kicking this level’s ass, i promise.
i’m a little grumpy (it’s rainy and cold outside, plus i just woke up from a much needed nap) but i’m going to workout anyway. even if it isn’t great, i’ll be proud that i did it even when i didn’t want to. however, having a fabulous workout would make me even more proud- a good reminder that it’s all mind over matter.
pretty good! it feels good to have gotten exercise, and i’ve been using my 3 lb weights more and more during the workout! however, i’m kind of mad at myself for cheating out of most of the bicycle crunches- i always hurt my neck, so i really need to find a good alternative, or someone to teach me how to do them properly. also, i’ve noticed that eating within an hour and a half of working out will give me really painful cramps- some better planning will get rid of that!
walked three miles uphill today, and tanned with my friend for about an hour and a half. the sun felt amazing, but i’m starting to feel burnt :/
The weather today was amazing, so I walked the 2 miles uphill home from school today, and I feel great! Putting this on my list of things to do more often.
