Workout Kicked My Ass But I Kicked Right Back!

Day Three!

Todays workout kicked my ass! In a good way of course! Today had been the hardest day yet for workout.  The last two days I've been taking it a little bit easier. Taking it slow to get my body adjusted.  I have been working out on the stationary bike for 15 minutes at 18 mph. It doesn't sound like much but it is definately great cardio!

Today I wanted to do things a little bit different.  I have a Wii and I have the Wii Fit game and Wii Active. I prefer Wii Active myself.  It has some pretty intense workouts on there.  I decided I wanted to do more cardio and a little bit of I guess it could be strength training.  So I decided today that I would do 10 minutes on the bike and then do some boxing on the Active for about 5 minutes.  I'm still wanting to stick to my 15 minute workout for this week. Next week I'm thinking of upping it to 20. Small steps = SUCCESS!

I started my workout on the bike and right away my muscles in my legs were screaming at me to stop.  I pushed through it though and made my ten minute mark.  I then came inside to do my boxing routine which consisted of target hitting and heavy bag. (This is all on a video game mind you, but it works!)  Four different sets of target hitting and then heavy bag nearly made me want to quit right away. I had one more workout left to go and my whole body was on fire! I had to push through. I can't quit! I WON'T quit!  I won't let the pain have the power over me! It kicked my ass royaly but I kicked right back and threw it in it's face!

They also send you a healthy recipe every week and we use that quite a bit. Love ya Angie! We will rock this!

  2. GOOD FOR YOU! I am hoping to get inspired by you. I decided my first step toward getting in shap was for me to stop drinking soda. Ugggh! But I do believe tomorrow I should get off my butt and go for a walk on my lunch break.
