Day 1 has come to a close and I feel absolutely wonderful! I’ve been doing my Yoga Meltdown workouts by Jillian Michaels. I really don’t like her DVDs because she never actually does the workouts. She does this weird whispering to the actual trainers of “motivating” them and it annoys me. Nonetheless, I do the workouts because I enjoy them.
The burn of the yoga and the muscle repair is what I crave. My back pain might actually subside this time around if I keep up with the strength training, body weight training, and just my workouts period.
I love to slack off on my workouts and make a million excuses. This week I realized something though. If I cannot give myself excuses about the food and I get bothered when others do, why should my exercises be any different? These days it has really been a struggle. I have not been able to get the energy to get off my ass and just WORK OUT.
“WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME?!”, I have quite often found asking myself. I found out, finally, and I am not going to let this overpower me and weigh me down. 30-60 minutes a day dedicated to my physical fitness is just a tiny percentage of the day I have ahead. I am taking the plunge and I won’t give up this time around. I guess I did good today when my whole body hurts. xo
