First, a big hug and thank you to everyone that commented yesterday.. Right now, there's a lot of extra stress from my family and I have no control over any of it, I can't change/fix any of it, and I let it get to me. I know better, and I'll do better at keeping Debbie Downer at bay.
Now, yesterday I had planned to use my new kettlebell and Bob Harper's DVD that I bought to go with it but, after dealing with my asshat scale, chose to skip it in the morning. By the time I got home from work last night, I had such a headache (I have a history of migraines, but this was the first I've had in a while) and wasn't sure I'd be able to work out at all. After dinner, medicine, and tons of water, it started to let up so I popped the DVD in. Less than 10 minutes in, I had to stop because the higher my heart rate went, the more my head throbbed. I was more than a little bummed, so I waited. Half an hour later, I tried again and made it about 40 minutes in before I had to stop again- mostly because my whole body felt like jello! I want to go through the entire workout again (it's 50 minutes long so most of what I missed was a cool down) before really making a decision, but I think I prefer Jillian's 30 Day Shred. Bob's Kettlebell DVD is a little repetitive- though, so is Jillian's, but it doesn't feel so bad because it's a shorter workout. There was also this one move that I just could not do- scaling. Basically, you're walking yourself across the room in push-up position. There are also TONS of squats throughout the workout, and I'm pretty much sore in that area constantly now, so the verdict today is: ouch.
I will say this.. After Bob's crazy scaling exercise, I won't be complaining about the closed grip push-ups anymore ;)
On another note, someone recently asked when I would be taking a January progress photo. Honestly, I don't know if there will be one for January because I'm in pretty much the exact same place I was in December. The next one will be taken after I break 200, whether I can see a difference or not.
Tonight is Zumba, let's hope I can still move tomorrow morning!
