Slight Progress

Slight Progress

I can now make it to the second round of push-ups before feeling like I’m dying. I’m counting that as progress. Still cycling through the jumping, though ๐Ÿ˜›

I tried running it without the instructions, but the music only setting doesn’t give any indication that the exercise is changing. Personally, I find that poorly thought-out, but I suppose you’re supposed to like hearing the person talk. I generally get sick of them as soon as I can say the entire routine along with them, if not before.

Well, It’s Something

Well, It’s Something

I’ve decided to ride my bike through the cardio minutes in the shred. I know it decreases the difficulty, and likely the speed of the results, but I’d rather do something than try the jumping until I can’t, and do nothing. Anyway, this is my plan, until I can get through the warm-up jumping jacks without it hurting by the end.

As expected, it seems the board mis-weighed me yesterday, but there was still a minor change for the first time in awhile, which is promising. Assuming it doesn’t go away tomorrow, that is ๐Ÿ˜›

Well, There Went That Plan

Well, There Went That Plan

So, I didn’t wind up doing Intu-Flow or Yoga today. Largely because at about the time I had planned to do so, my string of early mornings caught up with me and I fell asleep on my couch ๐Ÿ˜›

When I woke up, my back felt fine, so I thought I’d be good, until I started jumping. I think I need to find something to replace most of the cardio exercises, for at least until I can stretch out or otherwise recover from whatever got tweaked. Replacing them is better than not doing them, which is where I finally landed today. I got through about haf each circuit, and that was it. But I did an extra punches round at the end.

I think my Balance Board mis-weighed in my favour today. Which is kinda nice, because there’s a drop on the graph, but I expect it to go back up tomorrow ๐Ÿ˜›

*grumbles*

*grumbles*

Anyway, nothing for yesterday. I got in late and had to get up early, so I skipped.

Shredded today, but feeling annoyed at everything. I have decided whoever thought it was a good idea to make the intro to the program unskippable needs to be beaten with a Nerf bat. Seriously, I think watching that thing everyday will be more painful than the program.

Although, I tweaked something in my back tonight, so maybe not. I might try doing the Yoga exercises and/or Intu-Flow in the morning tomorrow, and then the shred later, just to try and work that out. It was something early on with all the jumping ๐Ÿ˜›

Let’s See If That Helps

I’ve been getting progressively more sore (over three days *lol*), which I expected, but would like to reduce if possible. So, today I took a break after doing the shred, and then did Intu-Flow. I’m not sure if that’ll mean I’m more or less sore, but I’m hoping for less ๐Ÿ™‚

In other news, I may not be using the games on the Wii, but I am still doing my daily body test, and am still tempted to take a baseball bat to the balance board.

Quick Workout

Quick Workout

I do like the fact that this is a quick workout. I did mine, and then had to log into WoW right away for my Tuesday dungeon runs *LOL*

I still hate push-ups.

And Now I’ll Just Lie Down

And Now I’ll Just Lie Down

About a week ago, a couple of my friends started doing a work-out called the 30 Day Shred. I have a terrible history with DVD workouts, but I decided the whole peer support thing might help, and ordered it. (It also helped that it’s a twenty minute work-out, which seems to be what my attention span and schedule can support.)

I got it today, and did the first workout. It starts with two of my weaknesses: upper body strength (stupid freaking push-ups) and cardio. I expect much swearing at the TV, especially during the first level, but assuming it doesn’t cause me to actually stop breathing, I’m going to keep going with it.

This’ll probably be the only thing I do for a while ๐Ÿ˜›
