Day 7

Yaay! 7 days straight of exercise! I think my cold is almost gone too. I just can't stop coughing. It's annoying, especially when I'm trying to exercise. Stupid cough :).

This morning I woke up and felt great! I woke up an hour earlier than I have been, although I didn't fall asleep until almost 2am last night (just couldn't sleep). The best part is that I did not feel sore AT ALL!

I think my problem before (regarding consistency with exercise), was my rest days. They are evil. It's so hard to start exercising again, when you have had a break, especially if it's not a routine. I would take a rest day, when I felt the worst, usually day 4 or so and that rest day would turn into 2 days and then, "eeh, whatever." What a wimp! I kept exercising now, because of the new years resolution, and now I don't feel sore anymore! I wish, that all of the other times that I exercised, I would have just worked through it instead of punking out. Stupid rest days. I guess this is kind of like in HS, playing volleyball. Our coach would kick our butt everyday in practice, and we had to work through it. There weren't really any rest days. I remember hurting so badly, but then getting past that. That's where I am now and I'm so happy because it's getting easier. I shouldn't get so cocky though, because I am only 1 week in and I'm sure my body is getting used to this same workout everyday. We'll see how things are in a few months or even when I make it to phase 2.

Today I did, "Step it Up!" the first phase in the Slim in 6 series with Debbie Siebers.

I wish that I looked how I felt, cause I feel fantastic!

See you tomorrow! Happy exercising!

I can do this because I am a star (so are you!)!

Hi Melissa, I love what you are doing----and yes, you ARE a star, (what a great motivational line!). I agree with you on the rest days. The longest exercise-in-a-row stretch I've done is 6 days in a row, then day 7 comes and I take a break, which more often than not turns into an exercise vacation instead on the intended day of rest.

I'm proud of you!
xoxo
