Or at least that’s the attitude that I’m taking more often these days. It feels good to be a little selfish sometimes! I’ve worked out each day I was supposed to (Tues/Thurs/Sat/Sun) and have been adhering to my personal nutrition plan (sensible eating with no eating after 7pm except on Fri OR Sat night). My weight is down slightly to 163.0 from 164.8. I’ll take it!
I’ve been using my new Wii Active game for some circuit-type training. I wasn’t sure what to expect. How hard could it really be, ya know? I’d been doing medium intensity workouts since I tried it the first time which was a few days after Christmas. It was different from my cardio only workouts but I didn’t feel extremely challenged. Last night I upped it to high intensity (low, medium, high are my choices) and not only was my workout about 10 minutes longer (25 to 35 minutes) but they tried to kill me. Or at least my legs. They had me doing three or four different types of lunges along with some long cardio sessions. My legs are t.i.r.e.d. today! And I like it! It was a little difficult for me and my jelly legs last night to go up the two floors from the basement to the upstairs in order to shower and get ready for bed. Thursday I plan on doing some cardio on the elliptical and then this weekend I’ll do more Active workouts. Active told me last night that my next workout was going to focus on abs and arms. Yippee! Anyway, I think this will be good for me. I hopefully won’t get too bored on the elliptical now.
Anyway, so far, so good. Motivation is high. Workouts and nutrition is on track. Things are pretty good right now! (Now only if I could get rid of this awful sinus headache…)
