Workout 106

Took 2 Tylenol again today right before working out.  My thigh muscles sang more than a little bit, but it wasn’t agony like yesterday.  My form was better.  I’m not sure if that’s a sign my muscle tenderness is retreating, the Tylenol or because it’s Friday.  I tend to perform better on Friday even though I may be pushing harder.  I’m guessing because my brain knows it will have two days to recover.  FitBit Calories:  171


Workout 105

Made it three-quarters of the way into the second instructor’s routine before I had to take it to a jog. My form during the third instructor’s routine was sloppy. My thigh muscles hurt really badly. Hopefully, they’ll recover over the weekend. On the plus side, I got decent night’s sleep for the first time in a long while. FitBit Calories: 261

Workout 104

After yesterday’s world of pain, decided to take two Tylenol before this morning’s workout. Those lunges would have killed me otherwise. I think this 5 day a week schedule may work. I wasn’t nearly as tempted to stay in bed. My form wasn’t great, but not as bad as I would have expected. FitBit Calories: 163

Workout 103

So I’m trying to “hack my brain”. I’ve decided to do my normal, high impact workout Monday, Wednesday and Friday as always. I’ve added in a low impact workout for Tuesday and Thursday. This way, the sweet sweet comfort of my bed will not lull me into staying on Wednesdays and Fridays (the days I normally fall off the exercise wagon).

I did the low impact workout and I feel like I’ve been hit by a car. It probably wasn’t wise to add it in after not having worked out for so long, but I didn’t want to delay the start of the new routine. My footwork was pretty sloppy. So many low impact workouts seem to compensate for the reduced exertion with complex moves. I had to take it to a march in the middle of the second instructor’s routine (there are 3 for this workout) because my thigh muscles hurt so bad. I shudder to think what Thursday is going to like.

Workout 102

A new year and another backslide. Sigh… I haven’t worked out for nearly 3 months. To make matters worse, I’ve gained back 27 pounds. It’s astonishing how fast that happens. I did manage to workout this morning. It will take me a while to get back up to where I was in the routine. There’s nothing really to say about it except to try again. I forgot to depress the side button on my FitBit, so I’m estimating calories burned at 208 using this site:
