So Jillian kicked my butt, or should I say my abs, quite literally last Friday. My mom and I did her No More Trouble Zones DVD, which I have done plenty of times. Except that about 3 hours later I was incredibly uncomfortable. At first I thought I was having gas pains or something, but I soon realized that I pulled some muscles. Big time. I hardly went anywhere on Saturday. I had slept terribly because I was so uncomfortable. Advil and heat did nothing to help. So I've been keeping a low profile while my upper ab muscles heal. I'm feeling a ton better today, but I did see the doctor to make sure it wasn't anything more serious (pretty sure it's not, but I'm still waiting for results from my tests).
I'm thinking this whole situation as an indicator that I'm out of shape. I have work to do! This has also shown me how important it is for me to get the weight off and get back to being fit. I think I've ignored my midsection and lower back for long enough. I need to figure out some good exercises for those area. Any suggestions?
What bummed me out most is that it was 50* here in NH this weekend. I was totally pumped to go running. That did not happen. I feel like I missed out on the nice weather. There's more coming, right? I've also been nervous because I have a really hard time losing weight without exercising, but luckily this situation left me feel icky and I didn't want to eat. I may have peaked at the scale this morning and I liked what I saw.
What's everyone else been up to? Is it warming up where you are?
