The last 3 weeks have been sluggish for me in the workout department. I have this nagging cough and fun upper-respiratory stuff that made me hesitant to do the JDRF Walk for the Cure event today in the rain. I'm typing from home because I did not go--I just can't risk getting sicker.
So, today, I knew I needed to take advantage of being stuck inside for most of the day. Having not worked out diligently lately, I found myself lacking motivation to get off the couch. Naturally, I turned to Pinterest for some in-you-face workout inspirational posters. While I found those, I also found an intriguing workout by Tracy Anderson that required no equipment. SOLD!
How did it go? Well it kicked my butt so badly that I only did it once all the way through and then did the first 3 moves a second time before stopping. I found it difficult to figure out the proper form but pushed through regardless. I feel pretty out of shape and obviously need to do some Jillian Michaels and Chris Freytag circuit training to get my arms back into shape.
I decided to hop on the treadmill for a 10-minute mile and 5-minute cooldown to complete my workout.
Despite coughing up a storm the instant I stopped running, I now feel pretty awesome. 15 workouts left until I achieve my goal! :)
