Workout 120321: More good

Today's workout:

Hip Warmup Stretch
30 min Treadmill (3.0 mph hill setting)
Hip Abductors (10 reps 3 sets each leg)
Bridges (15 reps with 5 sec hold)

Did you see what I did there?  Did you?  I increased the number of set of Hip Abductors that I do AND I added more reps to my Bridges.  I'm getting stronger!!!

I was so down last week.  So very very down.  Sometimes it really doesn't feel like I'm ever going to get better and work through all this.  This being the emotional, physical baggage of being where I am right now.  I only got 2 workouts in and the second left me feeling deflated.  I worried and fretted and, honestly, gave in to a big old case of self-pity.

And then this week came.  It's Wednesday and I've been following my plan.  Eating Reasonably.  Making it to the gym on time.  Getting my work done at work.  Waking up on time (thanks to a second alarm I added to my morning kick start program).  I'm happy.  And proud of the progress I'm making.

I love this feeling.


  1. Awesome!

    You have down moments. You stumble a little. Then you recover, and come back stronger.

    I see what you're doing there. ROCK ON.

    1. Thanks Lori! I'm so happy with my progress this week! Maybe I needed a little downtime to get everything back in perspective. Who knows? I'm just so happy that I'm progressing again. It feels so much better to work hard AND see results. Just a little closer to instant gratification!
