I think this was a very good day, especially since I did a longer workout. I TRIED to do an hour, but the ol' bod had other ideas. It was a really nostalgic workout today, actually. I dragged out my old step aerobics tape, Introduction to Step Training, I used over 10 years ago. I know this routine so well, I don't even have to really watch it. I remember when I first started using it in my 20s, I had a VERY hard time finishing the routine without stopping. I remember fast- forwarding through one section all the time 'cause it kicked my ass. Of course, it got easier as time passed. Today though, I was able to do it all no problem! YES! I am in better shape now, than when I started out exercising over 10 years ago. Makes me feel good. Take that 20-something-year-old self! I will admit, it was HARD. I looked in the mirror after, and it looked like I had suffered a horrible sunburn. My face was so pink! All my limbs were limp and noodle-like afterwards too. I may have to go easy on that routine at first. I am glad I knocked the dust of the old step though.
Jason and I are doing our first shopping trip since I started this whole thing, so that will be a good chance for me to pick up some more fruit and veggies. The problem with the grocery shopping, is I will only have time to work out after dinner, and it's always a toughie to get off the couch after eating! Until then, there is only.....
Stats for the day:
Exercise: 45 min. HIGH INTENSITY (oh yeah, baby!)
Weight: 214 (no change for a bit, but I'm not surprised OR worried)
