I'm Here to Pump *Clap* You Up!

Today was a new beginning. I went to the gym and paid someone to kick my flabby ass. We did a very nice warm up- lap the gym on tip toes, then on heels, then with a high kick, then bending to touch toes each step. Then a mini-circuit of dumbbell punches and high step ups with weights. 30 seconds each time and 3 rotations. Then a cardio circuit- 3 mins on the treadmill (I actually ran for 2 mins, 20 seconds), 3 mins on the bike (supposed to go on level 7 but I went most of it on level 12 and about 20 second on level 9), and 3 minutes on the rowing machine (no brags here- it sucked but I kept at it). Then another floor circuit. 45 seconds of air squats, 45 seconds on push up to side plank, 45 seconds of bike crunches. Then repeat those 3 steps but at 30 second intervals. One last time at 15(ish) intervals. Then crawl to the locker room and huddle in the shower while your body hates on you and screams at you. What a way to spend my lunch "break." You know what would really make me feel better? If someone wrote, sang, and recorded a song about me...

I bow to you, Liz.

I couldn't do that, I guarandamntee you. But I can walk at a brisk pace for ninety minutes and that works for me.

Is every bone, joint, muscle, tendon, organ and hair on your body sore yet?

Wow that sounds like a pretty intense workout for your first day! All I can say is you should expect to be sore tomorrow and the next day, but don't succumb to the pain:-) The key is consistency. So kudos to you again and keep up the good work.
