Back in the saddle!

And rearing to go.  I keep making all these weird innuendos today, sorry, so don't mean them!  I am 3 days back into working out after a few week hiatus, and it feels soooo good!!! I am sore all over and loving it. (again, sorry, that just doesn't sound right)  During my little break I was felling pretty crappy.  I've been attributing it to the time change from our trip to San Diego, and then the other time change, and this back and forth change of seasons that is spring in the Midwest.  I have been so tired that working out was THE LAST THING I could do in the day.  But finally Monday I got to work, and I am feeling soooo much better.  It is the 10,000th time I see again how much better I feel when I am working up some sweat.  It just gets your body moving and that's what feels so impossible when you haven't moved it enough.  So lesson: when feeling lowest MAKE MYSELF WORKOUT ANYWAY BC I WILL FEEL BETTER NOT WORSE!!!

Now that we have our daily lesson, this is my plan:  I am re-doing the bootcamp DVD, but modifying it.  I was loving  the Meta dvd, its all shiny and fancy, but I didn't feel like I was getting enough ab work for my purposes right now.  I still have that I've had 2 babies pooch that needs taming so I really want to address that.  I am not looking to drop much more weight, if a few LBs come off I won't miss them for a second, but this time around its to really firm up the problem areas.  I am going to try to keep the workout to 1 hour per day, 6 days/week.  So far that means I have done 25 reps of legs, 40 of abs and arms, and 10-20 minutes of dance cardio.  It feels so good to not be so rigid about it but to just get in 1 hour of working hard.  Some days I will focus on cardio more, other days on mat more.  I'm gonna just go with it and see what happens!!!

So glad to be back at it!!!  One month till I have to put a bathing suit on and be in public!!!  YIKES!!

Knock knock, anyone still there???

Well, hello!!! I didn't think there was anyone here, myself included!  I think I fell and blacked out for a minute, or no wait, that was just me not exercising and eating anything and everything for the last 2 weeks. 

But I am back.  I am here writing again bc it gave me the accoountability I needed when I did bootcamp.  I will pull my mushy butt up off the ground and get back to work with the help of this and your kind words of encouragement.  So thank you in advanced!!!

And, to be clear, I WAAASSSS on vacation so I wasn't being a TOTAL lazy bum, but it is a slippery slope my friends!

Currently debating doing parts of bootcamp over, WHAT???? Yes, but I did say parts.  Like maybe 25-30 reps and 10-20 mins of cardio, in order to keep workout down to an hour and a half tops!  Orrrrrrrrrrr, I continue on with the Meta series.  I don't know.  I will play with the 2 over the next couple of days and let you know what I decide.

And just so you know, I am 2 months out of BC and have maintained my weight loss.  I am feeling a bit mushier, esp in my belly, but at least I haven't gained the 10 lbs I thought I would by now!

So here we go again...
