I was too tired to write last night, so since I am taking the night off of exercising, I will spend a little time writing.
I think I am developing a Love-Hate relationship with exercise. Granted, I have only done it 3 times in the past year, but those 3 times have been this week. I genuinely hate working out, as I have previously mentioned, but I absolutely love when its over! I love how I feel when I am done exercising, and I love how much better I sleep when I exercise.
My body hurts - my legs are especially sore. I felt like all I did last night with my work out was stand up and lay down a thousand times! From one legged pushups. Every other exercise I was on the ground. From being in plank positing and trying to do the "run" (keeping your hands on the floor, you switch your legs back and forth - one foot moves towards your head while the other goes backwards- like you are running, but you go nowhere) What the hell! I think I did two - and then just watched the people on the dvd do it. I think I actually burned calories by watching them! I did what felt like was hundreds of lunges - even though it was probably only 20 on each side.
Between the lunges, I had to get on the floor and do "banana and superman" - roll from your back to your front and keep your legs lifted up the entire time and your head/chest/shoulders lifted as well.
At one point, although I don't remember what it was for, I told to tv to "shut the hell up!" and started laughing pretty hard. I wish I could remember, because I'm sure it would be funny for everyone to read. Regardless - I just stood there and laughed at the tv, because i thought that that particular exercise was way to ambitious for me to handle.
HAHA! I remember, I Remember! - its called the Dreya Roll. You start standing up - then sit on your but, roll backwards on to your shoulders and and stay there for a few seconds while your legs are perfectly straight in the air, THEN roll your self back up and jump off the ground from a sitting position. Yeah, they (the people on the dvd) all did 20 or 30 of those. hahah. I couldn't even do 1. usually - it take me a lot more to get my ass off the group - let alone jump from a sitting position. Amazing. Its funny now, but soon enough I will be able to do this...
On a different note, my milk expired 3 days ago - and I didn't realize this until yesterday. I was never much of a milk drinker, but I have always been a big "go by the date" person. I would always check the milk cartons at my grandparents house in Camp Verde - and get freaked out when it was 2 or 3 weeks old - but since they froze their milk and then thawed it out a few weeks later - they always said it was okay. "um...but the date is really old" So, I drank the milk yesterday - but i just couldn't bring myself to drink it today - so I missed out on my protein shakes today. I actually didn't do very well with my 5 meals.
I only had applesauce for breakfast, then i had asparagus and a hard boiled egg for lunch. Then I went to Johnny Rockets for dinner with the fam. I ordered a chicken sandwich. Let me tell you something - without the bread, that sandwich is pathetic! a small piece of chicken, 2 shreds of lettuce and a tomato. Needless to say, I make much better chicken than the $7.99 chicken that johnny rockets makes!
I did manage to get in a lot of 'physical' work around the house. Dishes are done, Lawn is weed-eded, mowed and watered, the back yard is finally empty of boxes, stuff has been moved into storage...and my laundry is done.
Tomorrow -after the Easter festivities of an egg hunt and hangin with the family, I'll be working out - I think its the YOGA workout - which from what I remember from the summer is one of the hardest dvd's of the bunch. Wish me luck!!
