One Week Down....
Friday, March 06, 2009
OK - it's been a week with VERY little cheating - NOT BAD if I do say so myself! The exercixe part is a little harder to get back into - but I'm getting there. I signed the girls and I up for a self defense class at or Police Station. WOW - last night was our first real training (first meeting was all info) and it was 2 1/2 hours of pure cardio!!! it was actually a lot of fun (Other than my 15 year old laughing her butt off at me... she's been sick and couldn't participate in the actual activities - only went to watch (and make fun of Mom - you know what they say a bout payback....) I am extremely sore today. Between the blocks, parleys, and kicks, those creeps out there don't stand a chance! It was great seeing my 12 year old get into it - I had more fun watching her (the kid that NEVER gets in trouble) kicking the Police Sargent and yelling at him.... it was worth all the pain today!
I have to say though, I felt really good this am when I got up (could it be because my 15 year old went back to school after 3 days home sick) - more energized! I went downstairs and did the elliptical! Haven't done that in months! (ok - it was only 13 minutes but that's 13 more than I did yesterday!!!) It's finally getting warmer out too (34 degrees!) I'm gonna have to walk the dogs!
Well - I made it through the first week, and heading into week 2, I feel pretty good about myself for a change! It's about damn time!
