Day 295 on the Journey!!
Tuesday, April 29, 2014
Today was a good day.
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.
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.
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!!
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.
