Happy Burst-Day!

So yah, my husband doesn’t say birthday…is term really brings to mind the Aliens series of movies…but he’s never watched one.  Yes, crime.  Yes, beat him.

Anyways.  I’m on Day 10 of PiYo!  I don’t know if it’s really doing anything/will do anything for me but the best part of exercise for me is that I feel better about myself just for having done it.  It’s been a struggle – particularly Day 6 and Day 9. 

Day 6 both my knees were failing me and they were sore.  When I got home I saw the particular exercise routine I had to do was called “Sweat” which is a 40 minute one instead of the 20 or 30 minute ones…so I went and watched TV for an hour to work up the ability to push through and do it.  That’s a dangerous game to play since laziness can take over so easily but I knew it was for the best.

On the 9th day (yesterday) we got back from an overnight trip to Elkwater where we had kayaked both days and done mini golf, walking and a bunch of stuff for our birthdays and our anniversary.  When we got home I was pretty tired so we watched some TV and before I knew it the time was 10:30pm at night.  It took a lot of effort but I got off my ass and did my 20 minute Core workout.  It didn’t feel like I sweat very much or exerted myself so I wonder really how hard I was trying…but I did at least do it.

I think my 2 week check in for measurements is coming up (that’s a thing right, I didn’t make it up in my mind this was happening?).  I won’t be doing it right on my 14th work out.  I have a funeral to go to this week out of town so it will lead a little into next week as well…so probably last week of August I’ll see where I stand.

I also need to figure out how to do my exercise while away.  I can do my 1 workout just before we leave on Thursday but I need to do Friday and Saturday as well.  I was considering doubling up my workouts.  This might only work for tomorrow.  I usually go swimming with my mom and do my work out routine on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  I may or may not be swimming today depending on when my parents decide to leave for the funeral – they are leaving ahead of time so my mom can visit her family too.  If we go tonight I won’t have time to double up my routine but on the flip side if I can double up my routine it’s good but I’m also getting the same amount of exercise as normal for today and it feels like cancelling each other out.  I wonder if I can triple up tomorrow or if I’d injure myself?


20140616_054246000_iOS This is incredibly accurate.  After Day 4 Shea thought I was playing so I have to add throwing her toy and getting attacked by her into my routine as best as I can.

Anyways, I was going to post all my photos to date but I’m having an issue with One Drive still downloading all my photos from a long while ago on this particular computer and I’m too lazy to email myself the photos and then save them, upload them, blah blah blah.  So Maybe next time XD  Who wants to see a gross “sweaty mug pic” anyways?
