I really felt like I phoned in all of the cardio on Day 7 of the 30 Day Shred workout. I did great with everything else, but the cardio killed me. I just keep thinking by now I should be breezing through this much easier, but I’m not. I have 3 possible reasons for this less-than-stellar workout:
1. This sunburn/rash thing I have going on.
2. I need to be doing this every day and NOT skipping days.
3. I’m just a wimp.
For the sake of staying motivated, I’m blaming 1 & 2. I really fell off the wagon of eating well this week, too. We’ve had some family functions (funeral, family reunion) going on that have involved copious amounts of “comfort food”, which is a no-no. Those 2 pounds I had lost are right back.
I realize this update is nothing but a litany of excuses. It is what it is. However, I know I am stronger than when I started. Over a week ago, doing a push-up was a struggle, and now it’s my favorite part of the workout (even if it is a modified version). I’ve made strides, but it’s time to quit messing around.
BUT!….BUT!!!! Since being home I’ve been wearing my “comfy clothes” (t-shirts and knit shorts) almost constantly and I had to get dressed up the other night to go somewhere. My clothes TOTALLY fit better. So there’s that! I kept wondering when I got home why I felt so comfortable in my clothes that night and then it dawned on me! Duh!
So, hopefully come Monday I will be back to my regularly scheduled workouts.
