Whoa baby…

I took the weekend off to head out to the Lone Star State Dulcimer Festival in Glen Rose, Tx (more about that in my L post!) and therefore didn’t work out at all this weekend. And man, working out today was brutal. It wasn’t as bad as day one. Mostly. I was more tired in the middle of the work out – this was the first time I thought I might throw up in the middle of it. Of course, I also decided to quit doing the modifications where I could. I still did the modified push ups, but everything else was the full version. I really thought it might kill me. I absolutely loved it.

The funny thing about this whole working out thing is that now that I’ve been doing it off and on for a couple of weeks, I’ve noticed that I’m more sore when I don’t exercise. How weird is that? I think it has to do with the fact that my muscles tighten up when I don’t exercise leaving me stiff and sore. The other thing I’ve noticed is that I feel so much more energetic when I work out several days in a row. Today was definitely not an energetic day. I was dragging when I finished working out, but, I know that tomorrow will be better. Still, we’re told that if we just work out two-three times a week that we’re doing good. Only problem is that with that, you don’t get the benefit of the endorphins every day. It’s also harder to fall into a routine when you skip days. Really, every day is best. And it’s what I’m going to try and do. We’ll just see how well it works out for me.

About texancountess

I find myself in the calming roar of the sea, floating gently on the foam of the breaking waves. Blue. Green. Gray. The colors of the sea mark the boundaries of my soul. The tumbled glass finds its polish under the relentless pounding of the waves upon the shore. Thus am I. Rough transitioning to polish, refinement ever a process, finding my niche in the storms of life.
