If you would have told me 4 weeks ago that I would still be working out, I wouldn't have believed you. I can't say that it has gotten easier, because it is hard to keep doing something that hurts. I liked what one of my friends said on Facebook, "The workouts should not be easy, or everyone would be doing it!" Amen to that.
One day I heard a ripping sound in my pants as I was doing squats...that was not the ego boost I was hoping for.
I usually save the crying for after the workout, but one of the days I could barely get through the workout without tearing up. Some of these things are really hard for my body to do, and sometimes you make a fool of yourself when you try. Yes, I realize I should be proud of myself for trying, but it doesn't make it feel good to fall on your face.
Instead of going to a workout one day I decided to create a playroom, and wipe off the stationary bike that had an inch of dust collecting on it. I am excited to start using this to mix things up.
I was asked what kind of workouts I am doing, and this is just a sample of one I did last week. This cute girl in the video is the main instructor.
I was in bed determined to come up with any excuse to not go yesterday morning, but I went. It is starting to become something I need to get me out of grumpy moods. Yes, it does make me cry, but it makes me feel so much better.
When this all started I didn't want to change my diet, and so I haven't. This is why I probably haven't quit working out, the small steps help me keep sane. One day I will change my diet, once I have a handle on the working out. In the past I have become unbearable to be around when I have tried to change it all. So, although it would be lovely to be seeing bigger results, I have to pace myself.
Week 4 down, yo.
