Day 5

Day 5 was my biggest task: It included a buffet dinner with friends...


Actually, according to my math, I actually didn't go toooo overboard:
I only had a small pumpkim soup and one plate and it was a variety from the salad bar!!!

Well that's not all: I also had some apple crumble... IMO, not bad for a first run in with temptation!

Day 4

Well, the good news is: The soreness has been diminishing over the last few days and now it's barely noticeable.

The GREAT news is: For some reason, which is completely beyond me, the soreness did not affect my exercise AT ALL. It was the weirdest thing... As if during exercise there were no sore muscles... I found this baffling, but I'm not complaining.

Sore is an understatement...

Oh My God!

I am soooo sore, it's not even funny.

I am seriously, but seriously damaged here. I feel like I am walking on eggs, and going down steps is actually a painful thing. Even sitting down: I just position myself over the seat and then just let myself fall onto it, I can't actually lower myself into a squat without going ARGHHHH.

This just shows you what greaaaat type of shape I am in... Anyway, I googled the soreness after the shred, and apparently everyone goes through it, and the advice: Push through it. Let's see if I can actually manage to do the exercises with this soreness...

The the games begin!

Today I'm starting my new lifestyle: daily exercise and a balanced low calorie diet.

The goal: to be healthier, more agile and HOT.

While I had counted on using the p90x exercise videos, after 15 minutes of trying to do the first video, I was confronted with the obvious fact that I am soooooo not up to this challenge: it's very demanding and I simply don't have the physical ability needed. Not yet anyway.

So I changed my exercise routine to the 30 Day Shred by Jillian Michaels, and so, finally, the games can begin!
