Today I changed things up a little, and listened to something inspirational while I did the workout. Ok, not really inspirational, but totally hysterical. I ran across my A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum CD with Nathan Lane, and had it going while I was dusting and vacuuming. I kept it on while I worked out since I feel like I know the exercises now, and it was great. I think it even helped me cheat less. There were a few times when I did an extra jumping jack or two!
As for progress . . . I haven’t lost any weight. But like I said yesterday, I feel skinnier just from the fact that I am fully aware that there are ab muscles in there somewhere. And I feel better. The soreness is starting to get a little better, and there’s just something about having a good sweat everyday that makes you feel healthier.
My goal for next week is to work on my eating habits. I’m paying for Weight Watchers, and have access to their incredible online tools . . . but I haven’t been using them.
So, even though I was mad about doing this, am I glad I did?
Exercising, even with the horrible very bad 30 Day Shred, makes me feel better. I’ve experienced that enough times in my life to know it as a fact in my head, but somehow, it’s only when I feel it as a fact in my body that I’m inspired to keep going.
Oops, I was in bed last night and suddenly realized I hadn’t linked back to The Thrifty Mama, where I’m participating in the link-up of 30 Day Shred Reports. Such a no-no, and I’m sorry!
