Kicking my own butt, that is what happened. I started off to a decent start...walking. I walked for half a mile, then came the jog. At 5.0 on the treadmill, that is what I did for the next half mile. That was honestly all I could do. 1/2 mile. My legs felt like tingling tree trunks, I am so out of shape. Heavier than I should be, but up for the journey. So I kept on walking at 4.3 til I hit 20 minutes on the treadmill. Next, I moved onto the elliptical. 15 minutes at a level 5, I was dripping sweat. So today, 35 minutes of cardio- not a bad start. Then the stretching. I am a flexible gal, but not as much as I used to be. I am up for the journey, I have my goals in sight, and I am ready to go. I am not tired, I am energized, and I am now up and going for the day. The kids are still in bed, so it is peaceful- I will be posting regularly, because this is going to be my journal to success. I have also decided to post a picture tonight??? Why, because I need to see it, and move forward.
BTW, did you watch "The Biggest Loser"? Loved it! Alli is so inspiring, and I am so thrilled she did it. I was crying, yes, I know, through half of it, because I feel like I can relate. So here we go on a roller coaster of a journey, weight loss, and working out can be a beast, but I am up for the challenge.
Just an fyi, I have 87 days until I go to the beach. Day 1 of 87, off to a great start!!!!!!!
