The secret life of a working out Mama
Ok so sticking to my plan of getting back at'r and going back the basics I followed through on my plan of being sure to workout 1hr a day for 5 days a week......one day at a time :)
So yesterday (Mon) I had nothing planned and it was raining so I thought it would be a good time to workout in the morning. So I popped in the Jillian Michael's 30 day shred 20min workout. Now for those of you that know me 20mins of working out is just not going to cut it, I need an hour or more!
So my bright idea was to do all three levels one after another....20min times three equals 60min right!...right!
Ok so first the only weights I have are 2lbs, 10lbs & 12lbs that my hubby got for me off Kijiji last summer....so anytime I do a weight workout I have to do it with the 10lbs weights! LOL!! OH BABY!!! Let me tell you!...I has huffing and puffing and grunting and groaning half way through level 2 and ALL the way through level 3 OMG!!
Even at one point my brain started thinking, "God this is hard! Oh man I don't like this" So what did I do?!.....told it to piss off and just listened to what Jillian was telling me on the screen instead.
Ok so this morning OMG my arms are SO sore! LOL!!! I can't even lift my grumpy 2yr to the time-out spot! This is what makes me think of the 'secret' life of a working out Mama because I now will go through the rest of the day remembering my workout with every move I make today! LOL!....It reminds me of last summer when I was training for my first Tri. The night before I did the longest distance I have ever done (600m swim, 14k bike, 4k run) and then that morning I was changing poopy diapers with one hand and holding down the kid who didn't want to get a diaper change with the other hand and trying not to get sh*t everywhere! LOL!....as I was doing this I thought to myself,..."Do you know what I just did last night!?"....and well... no they didn't, because it's my secret life.....but I wear every sore part with pride because I know what I did..... te he.
Now I must go and iron me cape :-)
'Live in YOUR Awesome!'
