Day 295 on the Journey!!

Tuesday, April 29, 2014

Hey Sparkfriends,

Today was a good day. emoticon I started the day with my Focus T25 Ab Interval video. I have to say I barely made it, I can't even say that I nearly nailed it today but I still felt good. This video is a bit challenging and I can't nail it until I build my core strength some more so I'm just going to keep pushing and by the end of the Alpha Phase (the next 3 weeks) I'm sure I'll be able to say I nailed it. emoticon

I decided last week that I need to get my husband exercising and I know I wouldn't get him to do my Focus T25 with me in the mornings so I told him that we were going to go jogging 4 days a week in the evenings starting today. I've been telling him that since I decided it 2 weeks ago and I don't know if the re-reinforcement from saying it over and over again actually worked on him but we did go jogging together this evening. emoticon I was so happy!! I hope it isn't a fluke because today was his day-off but I'll know for sure tomorrow.

Now about the jogging. I swore that I would be able to run for 30 minutes with ease because I've kicked butt at Insanity and been kicking butt at Focus T25. This should be a cakewalk right? WRONG!! I realized today that I've only been living under an illusion of fitness. LOL!! I could only do 15 minutes and 34 seconds of actual running. Poor Dane was being held back by me. I was so ashamed. There I was claiming that I was so fit from exercising six a days a week and he who doesn't have an exercise program at all was jogging like he was on a leisurely walk. Oh the irony. Was I discouraged though? Nope instead I've allowed it to motivate me. We are going to continue this and I am going to get to 30 minutes!! emoticon

On the food front. I couldn't track as well as I wanted to today because I couldn't really calculate accurately the calories in some of the things I made for dinner but I'm sure I stayed in my calorie range.

So anyway all in all a GREAT day. I'm looking forward to more like these. That' all for now. emoticon emoticon

    That's so awesome that you have your hubby willing to jog with you! I'm super proud of you for getting out and trying it, even if you didn't go as long as you wanted. That's still a great measure that you've overcome, my friend! Woohoo!!
