All week I have been telling myself that Saturday (today) will kick off my exercise routine. I wanted to go intense and I wanted to burn a lot of calories! Of course what did I choose to do… Turbo Fire!! Yeah, one of the most intense cardio workout programs I own (besides Insanity). There once was a time when I could fly through this program, sweat drip’n, heart racing and the victory of completing the entire DVD. Well not tonight!! It has been nearly 8 months since my last Turbo Fire workout and boy does it show! In the first 10-15 minutes I was on fire! Keeping up with Chalene and rock’n the moves! Both Keira and Tristyn were cheering me on with shouts of “go mom!” and “wow mom, you’re good!” to a vacant audience and me standing alone in the living room panting like a crazy person. I’m not kidding, my chest was on fire and no matter how much water I guzzled down, I couldn’t put out the flames. I would pace myself, get my breathing under control, and then go right back into it bust’n out the fire drills. During one of my breath catching moments, Keira had come into the room asking “Mom, why are you stopping? How can that girl (pointing to Chalene in the video) keep going and not get tired??” … ha ha ha… Momma needs more practice baby girl!
I had 18 minutes left of my 45 minute workout and was overcome with a headache… more than likely due to lack of hydration. I called it a night and DAY ONE of me being back into exercise mode.
Today’s Food Journal is very simple since I only craved one thing… NORI!!! Lol. Anyone who knows me knows that this is no surprise
Breakfast: one quart green juice
Pool side: 10 sheets of nori accompanied with a quart of green juice
Dinner: two red apples with almond butter
Pre workout and post workout: Vega supplements
When it comes to food, I haven’t been hungry… just maybe wanting food, or wanting to chew on something… I don’t know. I don’t feel deprived, but definitely satisfied.
