You've not done a squat
until you've done a
DAY ELEVEN AND TWELVE
3/4 & 3/5
Day eleven fell on Sunday. Now Sunday is a VERY busy day for me. BUT I was determined to get my workout done.
Only waiting 1/2 hour after eating a huge taco salad (650 calories huge), I hit the mat. Cramping did occur during the cardio, but I pushed through it. After the 20 minute
torture routine was complete, I had to run out the door....no sitting and typing about my workout yesterday.
Day twelve brought me no energy at all. I didn't even want to get out of bed. Monday's are usually like that for me because weekends are constant on-the-go! So I held off until 3:30 to get to it.
I do think I'm ready for level 2. I went through all circuts fairly easily. I even used the 3# weights throughout. I completed everything again.
I am not doing this for weight loss. I've had a bunch of people ask me why I am doing this because I am 'so thin'....my answer is always "clothes hide a lot". Which they do. But I don't need weight loss, just toning! After 5 pregnancies I've got a bit of a 'pooch'. Also, I'm working on getting my 'granny-flaps'.....you know, the upper arm flaps that swing back and forth when you wave...yea, I'm growing some. I want grandchildren, but no flaps please!
Anyway, today while changing for my workout I noticed that my abs are toning. They really are.
I can see a difference...now THAT is motivation.
Also, I have much more energy. I actually wake up in the morning feeling rested (except today).
Although I wish I could have all these results with less effort, I guess anything worth having is worth working for.
So thanks to my Sampy-June for inviting me on this journey. I'm 12 days in and feeling much better!
