Day 8 (day 1 / week 2)

This blog is dedicated to all of the busy people out there that say they don't have time to exercise.

Today I didn't have time to exercise, but, haha, surprise! I did anyway.

:(

It was non-stop from the moment I woke up this morning. I went to Costco for a mondo shopping trip, came home, put Logan down for a nap, re-organized the freezer (so the stuff I just bought would fit), unloaded the car (4 trips--apartment parking SUCKS), put groceries away, shoved dinner in the crockpot--the stuff I could not fit back in the freezer lol (not the healthiest, I know--I'll work on that later) and THEN after I did that, I exercised and now here I am. I'd have say, if I didn't have this resolution, I would NOT have exercised today, that's for sure lol. I feel like with the trip to Costco alone, I had exercised lol.

I am somewhat bored with, "Start It Up!" (SIU) I have been doing it everyday for 4 days (waah, right?). I know it like the back of my hand, and I don't struggle through it. I could probably do Phase 2...in fact, I think I will tomorrow! No excuses! So because I am bored with SIU I decided that I am going to have my version of a rest day, which isn't a rest day all, but a day of low intensity.

It was 2 somewhat short workouts--not even workouts. One was a workout, one was stretching. I did Slim & Limber (15 minutes) which is stretching and felt GREAT, and Slim & 6pack, which is 8 minutes of abs, according to WOWY (on team beachbody) and the back of the DVD box, but it's actually 11 minutes long. Hey! Those 3 minutes matter! ;).

Well, I guess I DID exercise, technically. I noticed during the Slim & 6pack, that I was starting to sweat and my heart rate was elevated--so that by definition, is exercise, right? I can't do that workout as easily as I can do SIU, so I look forward to doing it again. My abs are kicking right now too, so I guess that makes me feel better.

In the words of Debbie Siebers, "See you tomorrow!" lol

Smiles and blessing!

I can do this. I am a star :)

Hey Melissa! Great job keeping up the work outs! something, ANYTHING, is better than nothing! Your inspiring me to work out as well. Yesterday I did a 20min yoga session from a DVD I have from Denise Austin and walked for an hour. Today I did the yoga again, but it was too cold to walk. Because of my back I have to take it slow. But it felt GREAT to stretch and do the yoga. When my back feels better (it already is!) I am going to lighty try one of my three areobics DVD's. Thanls for all the inspiration and good job!!

Thank you for your comment :). I am so glad this blog is helping to inspire you too! Hearing that inspires me! It sounds silly, but seeing your comment this morning has given me an excitement to exercise for today, so thank YOU!

Someday this year I'll get into yoga. When I do, I'll give you a call so that you can give me a few pointers on where to start :)

Thanks again Destiny!
