This week has been my first week back into the workout mode. Right now, I have a love/hate relationship with it. I have done 5 days of C25K since last Tuesday and let's just say I am re-learning HOW to exercise. Two key parts of working out are water and stretching...basic things that make such a difference!! On day 3, I didn't drink any water until my workout, didn't really stretch before hand, and the whole workout was awful. My calf muscles felt like they were ripping off my bones! (A bit dramatic, right?) I cried for about half of the time, but kept moving, kept going, kept willing myself forward. It was a bit cathartic, until I realized I am sabotaging my own success if I don't do the things necessary to make it easier to work out.
Did some googling and found a great stretch routine here. It's tailored for runners, but I think it would be a great routine for most basic workouts.
So, this week is going to be different! I also made up a WW food log, re-sized from this one. I made enough pages to make a monthly booklet. So far, so good!
I am going to start doing my weekly weigh-ins next week...since I didn't weight at all last week. So, hopefully I can report a big change!
