Day 16- 8/17/10


It seems my theory about sleep and soreness (in my case) was right- I got a full night's sleep, and woke up feeling like I did work out but not like I couldn't walk.  Also I make a joke with my friends that I have a standing daily "date" with Tracy Anderson, and if we keep seeing eachother at the end of this month, I think it could be the start of a  nice long term relationship~

All joking aside, I actually am starting to get addicted to working out.  In the past, I have not stayed on any kind of exercise for very long, due to discouragement and not seeing the results I was hoping for, at all.  This time, I am seeing quick results and I actually LIKE the workout.  I find it fun, whereas others may find it a grueling hell. :) 


Protein shake (had to run errands really early today)

Lunch/midmorning snack

2 hardboiled eggs
1 cup (cooked) whole wheat rotini with olive oil and garlic

Midafternoon snack (post workout)

Protein shake


Sweet onion chicken teriyaki sandwich from Subway (6 inch) No cheese, no extra oil


PD1- Instead of only upping to 20 reps on like, 2 of the moves like yesterday, now that I was well rested, I was able to increase ALL of my leg work by 5 reps- except that brief leg series after the arms. By then I'm still just tired, however I am slowly able to do them a little faster but with a lot of challenge.

Today I got lucky- we had a nice, cool, overcast day outside so you know what that means?  I went outside and did about 10 minutes of dance cardio.  Half of that time was skipping, jumping jacks, doing random moves from the combinations I know, the other half was doing combo 1 to one song.  I would have done combo 2 as well, but after 10 minutes, I was spent. My lungs were starting to hurt as were my legs (I really go full out energy when I do my DC outside).  I noticed my endurance is going up a LITTLE too.  :)

Well, off to bed again, see you tomorrow!

  1. Yay for cooler weather! I'm glad you were able to get a little cardio in and that you're not as sore today. Sounds like you're making good progress, and it's great that you finally found the perfect workout for you.
