Well, just making it out of bed was an accomplishment today because apparently, I had NO idea how sore I was going to be today. I know yesterday’s workout burned, but today my body was so sore it felt like I had been just pulled apart from every appendage. My thighs? Sore. It hurt to lift my arms to do the simplest things, like wash my hair in the shower. Aleve didn’t even touch the pain I have felt all day. I told my husband my c-section didn’t even hurt this bad. I’m serious about that.
However, I got up and decided I would immediately do the 30 Day Shred DVD just to get it out of the way. I lasted 10 minutes today. And it wasn’t like yesterday because I was so winded, it was simply because I hurt so bad I had NO strength to carry on. None. I decided I would try to finish the DVD later on today, but that didn’t happen either.
Instead, I did a full hour of walking around WalMart doing grocery shopping and could only stand about 5 minutes on the stationary bike at my parent’s house before my thighs were on fire. Naturally, I feel like today was just a big wash. However, I did eat well and didn’t go above my recommended caloric intake, so I feel good about that. I ate protein for breakfast, something I normally never do, and was surprised that I felt NO hunger all day long. I finally made myself eat at about 5 PM this afternoon. I know it’s not good to not eat throughout the day, so that was a weird thing for me to not have feelings of hunger. I also drank 1/2 a pitcher of water today. I feel good about the food choices I made today, but just terribly disappointed with how sore I feel today.
I know this pain is just part of the process, and I really did try to push through, but 10 minutes of the 30 Day Shred was all I could do today. Hopefully, I will feel better tomorrow
