I didn’t like working out, but I did like the way it made me feel. Yeah, I was sore, and I sweat a lot, but that’s okay. I felt like I was accomplishing something, if only just doing something on a regular basis. A good friend of mine has been doing a lot of research and work into paleo, fitness, body chemistry, and other things I can’t even begin to understand. I want to learn more, but I learn better by doing, so I asked him to help me plan a work out.
I’ll be doing it for a month, three days a week, and the nice thing about it is it’s not long periods of time. Workout 1 is sprinting. There’s a cul de sac in our complex that I walk half way around, sprint the other half, then rest for 30 seconds. Did that 8 times tonight, and I feel pretty good. The key is not to punish myself or workout until I puke.
Workout 2 is sets of exercises. I have a big list, and I am going to choose 10 from it and just do circuits one after the other until my time is up, I think it’s 10 minutes. Sit ups, burpees, squats, etc.
Workout 3 is kettlebell. Looking forward to that, because that’s strength training and I want to work on my shoulders especially because they’re giving me issues and after getting the all clear from my doctor, I’m interested to see what I can do.
For me, I tend to bounce around from thing to thing and I didn’t want to stop P90x, but I really thought that I was doing damage to my knees and ankles so I needed to stop. I’ll keep posting here and keep track.
The one thing that I have learned is that it all starts with what you put in your mouth. Think before you eat, and if you can’t pronounce it, don’t eat it 🙂
