Well, I got started. Then I got sick.
It was awful. I haven't been sick like that in yeeeeears. In fact, I still have a scratchy voice that sometimes gives out on me. If you know me personally, you know how hard that is on me. Singing is my favorite thing, and I can't do it at all right now. Ugh.
Anyway, this Monday I started working out again, and was awesome. No coughing fits, even though my throat did get very dry through it, and I didn't modify.
I still don't completely believe it. I really don't modify anymore.
I do jumping jacks. I run. I jump rope. I do switch kicks.
It's an interesting experience, to be honest. The moves are completely different than what I'm used to, so I am still working on coordination. I am still learning to land softly on my feet (dude, the bottoms of my feet were so sore yesterday!!) And wow, is it a difference in power. I can feel myself getting stronger every day!
Tomorrow I start a new program called the 21 Day Fix. I have been waiting for this program for weeks, since when it was first released in February, it sold out in a couple of days. Mine came in the week I was so sick, so it sat in a box for several days before I could look at it.
This program is 21 days long, and it is designed to make the process as simple as possible. The nutrition plan is super easy to follow. I don't have to count calories. I just measure my food out in the portion control containers that come with the program, and make sure I have the right number of each category through the day. The workouts are 30 minutes a day, period. I can't tell you how much that means to me! I knew when I heard of this program that it was the exact thing I needed to get me back on track. I like simple.
Hubby went grocery shopping today and filled our refrigerator with produce. The man bought me beets. I love beets. Not only that, but there are produce bags I haven't even opened yet because I am overwhelmed by all the healthy noms in that fridge! I am supposed to have 6 servings of veggies and 4 servings of fruits each day, so I am sure I can find my way through the mountain. There won't be any wasted, I am sure of it!
Pray for me! :)
