My muscles have been sore all day long, and I was in a good amount of discomfort for the better part of the day, but it was all worth it because tonight, yet again, I made it through Level 1! I did it. I keep shocking myself... in January I barely made it through the first 10 minutes of Level 1! Yesterday & today I reached the end of Level 1. I'm really pleased with how far I've come. I still have a long way to go, but things are becoming much easier for me.
I did have trouble not taking breaks for water, that's a killer for me. I love water & drink over 100oz. a day! I would say about half of that happens while exercising. So yeah, I took three water breaks. I did make it through the jumping jacks with a bit more ease tonight, though! I even did better with the push ups! Amazing what one day can do for you, eh? I can't wait to try tomorrow!
In addition to using 30 Day Shred, I also went on a two mile walk with my son, and did another 2 miles with my daughter as well when she got out of school. We went on a bit of a nature hike. I may start posting pictures of our nature walks on here just to give the page some eye candy. I did 3 miles on the Nordic Track as well. I took my vitamins yesterday& today, haven't been snacking on anything except for fruit after 7pm. My cravings for sweets & salty snacks have pretty much come to a halt, so I am having no trouble with eating only fruits as snacks. Even had some broccoli with dinner.. but that's nothing new.
I have a big article coming, it's involved a ton of research, but it will be worth it. I'm working on getting together as much info and as many links as possible on the effect salt and sugar have on our body, and also information on artificial sweeteners. Give me a day or two and it will be here.
So what are you all up to this week with exercise & dieting? I know quite a few of you are in the midst of challenges, which is very cool. I think I may do something like that a bit further down the line.
