Day 12~

Hi guys!

Well, I decided to not knock sequence 2 quite yet so I made another attempt.  All was going great until I did my one side of legs, then on the left side (which I always do second) came the move where you stand up on the chair.  Then disaster struck.  

Not doing the workout, but the clumsiness of me coming down off of the chair.  I guess when I put my right foot on the floor first, I felt a sharp pain in it, not like a break but like I pulled something, so I am staying off of it for the rest of the day.

I would have thought of this normally as a failure, but instead I see it as a challenge. 

My challenge is to work on and master the original Mat DVD until I can do 40 repetitions of all of the leg work, and doing 40-60 minutes of the Boot Camp cardio, even if it is just step touching. Hopefully this melts off this extra fat that is getting in the way of a lot of my movements and impairing my balance, as well as building up stamina.  Ideally, I'd like to go back into the Boot Camp more full on, perhaps using different, more advanced cardio from the beginning of it.

Mind you I am NOT QUITTING- I am just re-evaluating and doing it differently until I can feel a little more confident in my own body.


  1. Keep with it girl!

    I definitely think you should focus on the cardio. If your short on time, skip the MAT do the cardio, thats whats going to get the weight off! I think MAt is more important to incoorporate towards when your close to your goal weight. The cardio will get you there even faster!

  2. Hmm... You got a really good point there! I also DID think about just focusing on doing 1 hour of cardio a day until I get a bit lighter.
