Days 3, 4, 5

I am continuing to get up at 5:15 to “shred”.  Yesterday morning (day 4), I dragged myself out of bed and really had to push myself at times to finish.  I don’t know what made me so tired – I did do yoga Wednesday night (Shiva Rea) but it was not strenuous (Lunar Flow on her Fluid Power DVD).  But maybe I’ll avoid adding an evening yoga for the next week or so.

Even though I dragged yesterday I did do a little better on the push ups.  And today even better.  I have never been great at those and given that I am even heavier now than in the past, well, it’s tough!  I do not plan to move to Level 2 until I get through those push ups 100% for a couple of sessions.

I also plan to take weekends off since I believe my body needs rest.  Plus I need the mental break – never mind getting to “sleep in”.  Aka, sleeping until Z wakes up.  😉

So I dragged myself out of bed at 5:15 am and got it done (I am using my rebounder for the cardio – protect those knees!).

I’m pretty stinkin’ proud of myself.
