....KICKED MY BUTT. :)

Hubby and I started today. 1st day is push ups and pull ups. Instead of pull-ups, I did jumping jacks. I did close to 100 push ups over the hour-long workout. I did full push ups for most of it, but had to be on my knees for the diamond ones. Those are killer!! I only completed about 1/3 of the ab workout at the end. I was just too worn out from the hour we had already done.

But it's a hell of a lot more than I did yesterday or the months before it. :) The trainer reminds you over and over to go at your own pace and rest when you need to. It's easy to get discouraged when they're doing 30 of something and you can only do 10 but then I remind myself, they've had a lot more practice. I'll improve.

I made pork chops in the crock and we had green beans and water with it. Then we did dishes (by hand since the dishwasher is on the fritz). Holding the plate in one hand while I washed it with the other hurt my chest muscles and biceps. Hubby says "good". I told him if I had the strength I'd smack him. LOL

But he had a good point......I got a good work out......even if I couldn't keep up with everyone else.

    I was scared to try the pull ups at first but then I tried them with a chair, and now I love it. Still can't do them without having the chair there to help, but I love how strong they make me feel and the extra definition I've gotten in my back!
    Wait until tomorrows workout, plyometrics, that is one hell of a workout!!

    Your Tigger attitude is bursting forth. I don't always keep up either but I only consider myself in competition with myself....not anyone else. Oh, yes, some are great role models but I never feel I have to be where they are right now. Somewhere along the line, they were where I am now. I learned this from being a professional pianist. If I do what I do well and not worry about what others are able to do, I make more progress and concert situations are fun, challenging and rewarding. Just figuring that out was such a relief. chris

    Karen,

    Good for you!! You have exactly the right attitude...no reason you should be able to do what they are doing...your just beginning! You did so much more than the day, week and month before just keep remembering that and never give up...YOU WILL GET THERE and much quicker than you think!

    Keep up the AMAZING .... You are sounding more like Tigger everyday...certainly not Eeyore...lol

    Make it a great day!
