My arms feel like Jello
Thursday, July 30, 2009
well I attempted to do a push-up yesterday. I have never been able to do a push-up ever and it has been a goal for myself. I couldent even do one of the girly push ups because my weight was just so much I could not push myself up.
well I tryed one and I couldent do it... my upperbody strength just isent there. But.... I tryed a girly one and I did it! yay. I did 20 and now today my arms feel like jello. My muscles are so sore.
I desided to mix my workout up a little bit by forgoing the elliptical. I did a workout video that I use to do when I first started exercising. Its a walk away the pounds video with a belt that has stretchy resistance bands attached. Its a pretty good workout.
I have to tell you, it was a good workout, I was sweating alot when I was done .... but.... I wasent out of breath when it was over, I had no problems keeping up, or doing any of the moves durring the fast parts..... oh and the belt with the resistance bands on it (which hardly fit when I started) was not a problem at all! Yay :-) happy me.
I went out today because I was going to buy something just for me. I never do that.... Im always buying something for the kids or my husband, nothing just for me. I went out and looked all around and you know what I found for myself.... a resistance band! OMG lol. I thought that was comical, rewarding myself for eating and exercising right by buying myself exercise equipment. Oh well... I geuss it will help me a hell of alot more than a bottle of bubble bath or a scented candle. I really should buy something really indugent sometime though.
