One week into my at home workouts. As I write this, I feel my legs burning from the amazing 2 hour workout I did yesterday. While I’m only a week in, I’m finding this to be way more enjoyable that being stuck in a gym.
I’m still trying to find my groove, and I’m a bit all over the place with my workouts. So what have I been doing? A little of bit of everything! I’m trying to find what I enjoy the most and what is most effective for me. My workouts this week have ranged from walk/runs with my shih tzu Ming Ming, to shaking my booty with Just Dance 3. I’ve also signed up for my fourth 5k charity run in November, and have started training at the track, and lifting weights at home.
I must admit, I have been struggling a bit with staying focused. My intentions of an early morning workout were thrown out the window a couple days when I hit the snooze button repeatedly. I’ve found myself distracted more than once by my computer. And it’s very difficult trying to do sit ups with a dog licking your face every time you’re on the floor!
But I must be doing something right. When I stepped on the scale this morning, I was pleased to find that I’ve lost 2 pounds, even after an extra helping of pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving dinner yesterday.
The next week will be tough for me. I’ll be traveling, having company over the weekend and celebrating my birthday…..likely meaning lots of cake and lots of booze! But, I’m determined to stay on course, and hope to report another 2 pound weight loss next week.
