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.
