March Madness: Day 25

So…you’ll see I’ve missed a few (ahem – several) days in this series, my latest “campaign”.  Well…I did honestly miss some days in a row, but I did manage to get some exercise in along the way too, so I haven’t been all bad.  🙂

The last time I’d written was the last day that I did workout, I missed a few days.  The first day was just about getting a rest day in and then the days following were because I never got a chance to do anything until after 8:30 or later at night.  

Despite my lapse in activity, on Saturday and Sunday, (days 22 and 23)  I did 40 minutes of Dance Dance Revolution each day.  I felt great and energetic overall and got a good workout both days.

Yesterday, (day 24) I took a rest day.

Today, (day 25) I did 40 minutes of Dance Dance Revolution again.  I’m in a total rut with that game, but it is quite fun and I’m continuing to improve – it can’t really hurt, right?  So, back to my usual format…

Activity:  40 minutes of DDR

How I Felt:  Tired and kind of just exhausted/wobbly.  My foot hurt and my legs were sore from my intense DDR weekend.  🙂  I played at the Difficult level most of the time on those days and I was just wet by the end of that workout.  My shower felt great afterward, though!

Motivation:  I enjoyed myself quite a bit – and I wanted to get back into my routine and finish out my challenge.  I feel like I’m just doing something to do something though.  It will be so nice to take walks again!  The weather is finally starting to look up and I have a few days off coming up, so hopefully I can get outside again!!!

I’m not sure why I’m so very tired today though.  I have a desk job…seriously.  I don’t understand why I am just wiped out on work days.  Does it really take that much out of me each day?  I don’t have problems on days off…  It was really difficult to finish my 40 minutes today.  When I wasn’t even half way through I was thinking, “Oh God….maybe I’ll only do 30 minutes…”  But I made it, and that’s a good thing.  

I wish I could say I’m losing a lot of weight with this whole deal, but with the extra activity, I’ve also been extra hungry.  Sigh.  It is good for me in any event…just wish it led to a smaller dress size.  :/
