Yesterday, I felt good, I still felt as if death was knocking on my door during the workout yesterday, but I felt really good in myself afterwards. My body doesn’t look different but I guess the first thing to change is my mood. I still think I look disgusting but it no longer feels like a permanent downer. I am starting to think, yeah, I may get skinny again. Woo! So, positive thinking is kind of slipping in here.
My dogs made this a little difficult. As you can see from the photo they decided to lie as close as possible in my workout space. They did eventually move but only like halfway through the entire workout.
My arms, since I was little, have usually always been my strongest point. When I was swimming my arms were my most active part of my body. My legs were lazy, but my arms pulled me through. Which is probably why I enjoy working my arms more than my legs, I would never skip leg day, but I would enjoy it less than my arms day. This felt good, though my shoulders burned, and the sweat was still real.
I have never done this video before. I was not ready. When she explained that it was going to be intense, yeah! no shit! I love Chloe Ting, I am a fan, but oh my god curses were definitely a thing after this. My heart was rupturing, my lungs were collapsing, and the sweat was pouring off me like a water fountain. Ten seconds rest between exercises is still not long enough. I am hoping I get to a point that ten seconds rest is too long. But for now it just isn’t.
Surprisingly I think improvement is happening in the stretches. The calf stretches don’t feel quite as painful. And I am managing to push my leg into a better position for my pigeon pose. I say this now but I bet by the end of the week I will be like, no! no, I take it back, ah!
She is still introducing new videos that I haven’t done before and the workouts from the videos I have done before are still killing me I just know what I am expecting. Or should I say I know what is coming my way. So, I guess this is how habits are created… right?
Thank you so much for reading. Write again soon! Bye!
