During the work out: How do you feel?
Late start, but once I finally started I was surprised how much more endurance I had. I stopped or shall I say (in the Shaun T voice) “Maxed out” at 7:44 into the work out. Yes, I stopped for a few seconds prior on and off, but my maxing out point where I was burnt was almost 8 minutes in! Can you believe that?! I can’t!
Especially after that Half Baked Ben & Jerry’s tub of ice cream I ate at 9 at night! I know, know…NOT on the program. Don't judge me. I ate pretty bad all weekend. But thats not the point. The point is…I slacked off and now I am back at it verses ( the old me) saying, “F**k it! I’ll start April 1st” LOL. Thats the whole point, life and shit happens, but jump back in. Even if you are restarting everyday, at least you are starting.
Ok ok, back to how I felt with the workout. So after 8 minutes in I was burnt, panting like a dog. I was a sweaty mess. — I guess it didn't help that I had my heater on in the house still.— I still wasn't able to keep up fully with Shaun T and his team, but if I was comparing it from Day 1…Id say I am so much better.
I did notice that my knee kills when I'm doing the squats and stuff. It’s like I have no muscle strength in my knee. So that caused me to modify a bit. Baby Xan started crying when I only had 10 minutes left, so I had to modify again. Which sucks because I really wanted to do those burpees (sarcastic voice).
After the work out: How do you feel?
Well I can definitely say, I still DO NOT like sweating nor feeling tiered. But whatever, I have a goal and I gotta force through the pain, sweat, tears, and the thousand other emotions I am feeling. LOL Can you tell I am trying to motivate myself now because I know I still have to do the 10 ab exercise later that I was able to do this morning. LOL What a mess! Haha.
One thing though on the real…when I was working out and even as I am typing this, I thinking that this has been the longest I’ve committed to something AND to myself in a long time. Yes it has only been 7 days, but that for me is amazing! I am very good at pumping up and motivating other people, but when it comes to me…I struggle.
I am working out not just to lose weight and feel healthy, but I am working out to help me emotionally and mentally. Your mind, body and spirit are all interconnected and when one is off, it throws everything else off. I am on the hunt for a balanced me.
