Hi guys!

Sorry for the delayed post.  My past 2 days have been sore, but I am already seeing results!!!

Monday- had a stressful, long, tiring day that I was totally unprepared for, but managed to squeeze in the Mat workout with 20 reps a leg and just about all of the rest, using my legs only for some of the ab work *not strong enough yet!*  I had no idea how badly 20 reps would kick my ass.  I did this on Monday, it is now WEDNESDAY and I am still really sore. I think next time I do Mat I will keep it at 20 because that was a real struggle. 15 is when it starts to be really hard.   Doing Mat made me realize how much I missed weighted arms. I know the recent stuff has a lot of work on all fours which works out the arms in a similar way but this just has a different feeling.  

Tuesday- so sore I could barely walk, much less do the Mat workout again. Hell no!  I slept like a baby, then took ANOTHER nap during the day I was so tired!  I didn't feel ready to do dance cardio for fear that I would be in worse pain, or worse, hurt myself or bump into things and wreck the living room.  Therefore, I took a good brisk 30 minute walk.  It sort of made my butt and thigh pain worse but got a sweat on regardless. \

My thoughts- No way am I going to do Mat workouts 6 days a week... Yet. First my goal is 4 times a week, then build up.  Cardio 7 days if possible, even if it is just a walk.  The main goal is to burn off this lard, and cardio is the main way to do this. 

As for  my diet- I am still keeping it pretty clean, and around 1000-1200 calories a day.  Also, I ordered a body fat caliper so that even when my weight on the scale isn't budging, I want to be sure the fat is. 

Today's goal- do 40 minutes of the cardio from the book- step touching it. Even though I don't go high impact, within a couple of minutes, I'm sweating. Depends on how I feel- I MAY do my Mat work too.  I have class tonight so at least cardio will happen.  Tomorrow, my goal is to do BOTH since I have nothing to do that I know of. 

Keep up the great work everyone!
