Even though I've been working out for over 3 weeks now (yay me!), you'd think the sounds I my body makes was my daughter eating her breakfast cereal. I still hear joints popping, bones creaking, and hips groaning. I hear my knees and shoulders pop, my fingers and wrists seem to crackle, and occasionally... my ankle snaps. Don't fret, now... it doesn't hurt. It just makes me realize how long portions of my body sat there... unused.
Do you have unused parts of your body? Don't worry about it. Just start out and go slowly. It's okay to do modified impact. It's okay to not go "full out". If you ease into it, you are much less likely to hurt yourself or burn yourself out. It is a good thing. Just do your best and keep going. Babysteps!!!
This last weekend was really hard for me. I ate well on Saturday, but Friday was too much food for me to say no to. However, I didn't eat as much as I would have previously, so I believe I did fairly well. Yesterday, fresh brownies were made in my house, and it was freezing outside. How can anyone say no to warmth in the form of chocolate, I ask you! I am not that willPOWERED but I did pretty well, to say the least and didn't come out of it by eating half a pan... I only ate 1 1/2 small brownies. Not too bad, but not too good, either.
Today will be a better day. It is more routined, more scheduled, and I am grateful for that.
I did workout today. I exercised with Ms. Jillian. It was difficult to get through it, as for some unexplained reason, I felt more stress on my body during the workout, causing me to feel tired. BUT! On a good note, I finished my workout anyway. Yay me!
