I was right in my Tae Bo suspicions. I noticed last week the workouts on the Amplifier DVD's were a little easier than I thought they would be - especially after months of not working out and lugging the Samster around in utero... but I wasn't using the Amplifier bar (which weighs three pounds) because I KNEW that would KILL me. I wanted to ease myself into it so I didn't give up too early.
I'm not there yet, so today I revisited an older Tae Bo workout (Cardio Circuit 1) and I've since showered and I'm still shaking. Obviously I needed to kick it up a notch. I love the way it makes me feel - and I know I keep saying that, but I think it's because it's sooo hard to get myself in the mindset to exercise. It's sort of thought of (at least I've always thought of it) as something HARD and laborious. So I'm thinking if I focus on how GOOD it makes me feel then I'll be more likely to stick with it.
Today was my official weigh-day. I was only down ONE lousy pound. I'd be lying if I said this didn't disappoint me, but I'm not willing to quit. One is better than gaining... and they always say slow and steady wins the race. I guess I'll focus on that. I ate the same breakfast I had yesterday and I plan to have vegetable soup this afternoon (do you know how LOW in points this stuff is??)
Today Sophia went back to school. I already miss her, but my sadness was put on hold this morning when, during his morning bottle Sam kind of quit eating. I wasn't sure what was going on because usually he eats like a champ... so I looked at him and he gave me the cheesiest grin. It was amazing. He's seven weeks old today and I knew it would be coming... but to see him actually recognize me and SMILE... made my whole week. :)
Now, though, he's hungry and just started screaming so I'm off...
One pound. grrr... how'd you do?
