Happy 2014!

Hello everyone!

Today is the first day of the new year, and that means new starts all over.  

I did my first workout of the new year- and I almost didn't.

In my area, we had a massive snow storm and we got about 10 inches (a little under 30 cm for my international readers) of snow on the ground and that means shoveling.  I shoveled. Twice. I was incredibly sore and almost just went to bed after that.

Then, the little angel on my shoulder convinced me to at least TRY to work out. Just put in the DVD. Try a few minutes. You don't need to finish if you can't. Baby steps. 

So I listened to that little angel.  I got the whole first workout on the Method for Beginners DVD done! (Couldn't do more than that- I have been away from Tracy for too long) 

I felt it in my butt, I felt it in my thighs, I felt it in my arms, I felt it in my mind too. And it felt good.  I felt more limber and like I was standing up a little better, posture-wise. 

I also felt mentally better than if I had just skipped it.  I really need to make this a habit.

What I am going to do is this: Now that I know what my fitness level is, I am going to stick to doing the first workout on the Method for Beginners.  If I feel like I have a little more "oomph", or have a little more time, I will also try the first workout in Dance + Cardio (the one with no jumping)  Today I just had no extra boost. The shoveling did me in, haha.

Also, I did not eat that  great today. I did eat junk, I won't lie.  I had limited access to stuff due to the snowstorm and roads being horrible.  However, I eventually was able to shop and now have better food to eat at home.  Tomorrow, the eating part will be incorporated to the best of my ability. 

Oh, speaking of my dieting/workouts, I do have My Fitness Pal, and I do make my diaries public.

I also took my measurements and weight today (I skipped those goofy "left and right bikini" measurements but got my chest, waist, hips, thigh and arm measurements and entered them in my profile on Tracy's official site) and will update that on the first of every month. When I am at the point that I am doing Metamorphosis, those stats will be updated every level. 

So that's how my New Year's Day started- Not perfect at all, but improvements were made.
