Another week has come and gone. Holy crap! It crazy to think about how quickly time flies.
I managed to keep on top of my work out regime this past week. Working out 4 out of the 7 week days. I would’ve fit a 5th day in there, however on Friday JM arranged for me to enjoy a day at the salon and spa… and then well, Mother’s day fell on the weekend so we had other commitments to attend. But 4 out of 7 days isn’t bad, considering your body should have a few days resting period from time to time.
I continued to work out to the same exercise DVDs that I had used last week, but I also threw Billy Blanks Lower Body Bootcamp into the mix. The Billy Blanks Bootcamp is what killed me. I was doing great up until the point that I did his workout…. Holy crap – my thighs, buns and abs were burning the days following that workout.
I know feeling “the burn” is supposed to be a great thing, but in all honestly when I start to feel the burn I also start to feel the need to turn off the DVD and go sit down. For the most part, I do continue to push myself and do not give up… But there are days like yesterday when I woke up feeling under the weather, and tried working out. Things just weren’t going well, and I wound up shutting off the DVD after 19 minutes. I felt pathetic for just giving up, but I just wasn’t feeling well and wasn’t into it… I probably would’ve done my body more harm than good if I had continued with it.
I think soon my new problem will be that I’ll hit a plateau and become bored of all my workout DVDs. I love variety! So if anyone has any suggestions of other DVDs I should try out, please leave me a shout out!!!
Food wise… I did great this past week. I managed to cook a homemade meal each night. The only time I fell off the bandwagon was over the weekend when I was celebrating Mom’s Day with my family and indulged in a slice of cheesecake alongside a slice of apple pie… (Desserts are my weakness)… Which is totally understandable.
Anyway, this pretty much sums up last week… Let’s see what this coming week has a store…
