Today, I'm not feeling well. I've barely eaten ...and I went for a few hour nap this afternoon. I made myself get up, and after drinking a recovery drink...which I would need to get me through the workout, I got on that treadmill. I walked for 8 minutes, then jogged for 4. After getting that initial adrenaline rush, I decided that I was going to push my max...and so I did. I walked for 3 minutes, then RAN at 5.0 for 2 minutes. Hmmm...seems I'm stronger than I thought. So after walking for 3 minutes, I RAN at 6.0 for 1 minute, then walked the remainder to make it a 25 minute workout. I surprised myself. My heartrate was through the roof, but it recovers quickly. This little engine that could...did...and I feel sooo happy about that, because I really really needed it today.
I'm the mother of 3 beautiful girls. Somewhere along the line, I lost myself, and now
I am on a journey of rediscovery, of health and happiness which includes losing the weight that is holding me back from really enjoying life. I found The Gabriel Method (www.gabrielmethod.com )back in March and have been working that since. I believe he's got the key. In addition, I am on a self-imposed refined-sugar-free/gluten-free eating lifestyle. Exercise has become something that I love, that I crave, that I truly enjoy, thanks to discovering P90X. P90X is challenging, and killer, and awesome! Going Primal Baby! Blogging about this journey is going to be interesting.
