So after the past few weeks of slacking, I’m so happy to report that I’m sore! Not injured – just sore – and it hurts so good! Monday after my unfortunate run-in with a deer, I still got a really good workout. It was great to lift again. Since I had not been consistent at C3 for a few weeks – I had not lifted. I still feel too new at it to go down to our home gym and lift. But with my husband’s guidance, I was able to. Tuesday I ran 3 miles with my neighbor and having her company – kept me from remembering that I was convinced I couldn’t run more than 1. (p.s. there’s a lesson in there about not setting limitations on yourself.) When I met her on the street my first words were, “I’ll be shocked if I make it a mile.” So much for self-confidence and positive outlook…. But with great conversation and music – I didn’t notice I had overshot my 1 mile “goal”. Today I made it to C3 and happy to report – no wildlife was harmed along the way. The workout was great (until burpees – but they always suck). Found my 1RM for Shoulder Press (85#) and survived 4 rounds of row sprints, burpees and kettlebell swings.
And wouldn’t you know it – nutrition is cleaning up nicely too J I don’t have the mental fortitude right now for a sugar detox cycle (mama needs her wine) but the grains, dairy and “chemical sh!t storm” for the most part are well in-check. I’ll let you know when my big girl pants are loose again J but for now – just trying to forgive myself for the last few weeks and get back at it.
