I am So excited to share with you what I’ve been up to!!
Drinking the 64oz minimum of water each day is always a challenge the first few days, but it just makes me feel so good that I really enjoy it! I usually find myself drinking more! The positive results of staying hydrated are evident already! Usually, when I get thirsty, it’s because I am already dehydrated and my body is crying out for help, which makes me groggy, tired, grouchy, and no fun. So, making sure I am drinking enough water before I have a chance to crave it Really helps stabilize my mood! It’s amazing.
Since my last post, I have been Rocking! The first few days, I was filling my 10 minute workout time having outdoor fun with Savannah Banana! But, we were having such a good time, it motivated me to do more. I was ready to do my Fit Test with no pressure of a workout start-date or following a rigid plan. I was just ready, so here’s how it went! Check out my scores and if you think you can beat them, go for it! Tell me how it goes in the comments below! … There is a really good chance of beating them! Ahahaha!
FIT TEST: 7 Exercises, 50/10sec Intervals
Squat Jumps — 31
Push Ups — 22 (all on knees)
Burpees — 5 / 3 (walked)
High Knees — 85 / 14 (march)
Switch Lunges — 9 / 17 (step lunges)
Tuck Jumps — 14
Sit-Ups — 17
This was a major wake-up for me! It’s just so shocking how quickly you become weak after training and teaching your body to work and do whatever you push it to! Going from being able to run 10miles straight to having almost zero movement or activity at all, there is no doubt that being in the hospital for a month and a half really took it’s toll on my whole body! Now, a little over four months later, having long forgotten what it’s like to really work hard to complete a basic 10 minute workout, it iss like weight shock! I am now carrying 40 extra pounds of body weight! No wonder it’s so hard! If you need a visual, try filling two book bags with 20lbs each. Where one on on your front and the other on your back for a day! Could you do it without dragging?! I doubt it. Easy for you, just take the bags off! What I need to do before anything else is build up enough muscle to get my body moving comfortably, so I can actually carry my weight and then burn it all off!
Have you ever taken a break from your workout routine thinking it was no big deal? Was it even harder to get back into? I know its hard for me just after two missed days! Share your experiences in the comments below and tell me how you got back in the game!
