Workout 185

Being sick really makes it hard to workout.  While I firmly believe working out can help you heal faster, sometimes you just have to give in and accept that it's not possible to do it for a few days.

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! :)
