Don't worry - this is NOT a rant. In fact, it's the complete opposite.
Yesterday, I posted how I felt different waking up...recharged, rejuvenated...like the old me had finally found her way back. I even mentioned that I wanted to strength train - who am I??
Well, I kept my word, dusted off my 30 Day Shred...and got to doing a 20 minute work-out full of strength training, cardio, and ab work. I was so proud when I was finished. I didn't start off, then stand through most of the exercise catching my breath. I did EVERY exercise - and I felt great after.
I also said yesterday that I wanted to start Yoga again....well, guess what? I kept my word about that, too!!
I got up this morning. I had a cup of coffee. I wrote my BYOC post, then Jelly and I did a Yoga routine. One of these days, I'm gonna get Hubby to video tape her doing Yoga with me...the kid is a natural!! I was able to do the Tree and the Eagle pose with ease..you hear me?? WITH EASE!! It was easy!! I didn't wobble around like a weeble wobbler - I was strong, firm, balanced.
After Yoga, I felt refreshed. I had my breakfast, and my body was wanting more...not food...more working out. So, it was back to the living room to do Day 2 of the Shred.
Yesterday, I used 3lb hand weights - and realized that those were too easy. Today, I upped it to using 5lb hand weights. Not as easy, but I was still able to do all of the exercises...and I'm feeling a little burn in my shoulders and arms...exactly what I want to feel!!
My sweaty ass should have gone straight to the shower after my work-out... but I had to stop here, first. It's not very often that I get to brag on myself, so I wanted to do it. As I'm sitting here, typing, I really want to go and run this evening. Can you believe this??
Yes. Me. The person who a week ago was having to force herself to go out for a run is now sitting here after doing Yoga and The Shred....and still wanting more. Un. Be. Leave. Able.
Now, I have to get my sweaty ass in the shower cause I'm heading to my mom's for the afternoon. I'm babysitting my niece this weekend - she's 2. Having two toddlers in the house should keep me busy - but that doesn't mean I'm not going to work-out. Nope, I'm gonna have these kiddos working out with me. HA!! I just hope Hubby is OK with me
I wonder if I'll be up for early morning run followed by Yoga when I get home??
OK, seriously...who am I? I don't know - but I like it. I hope she's here to stay... we're going to do great things together.
Till next time ;)
