Today is a great day. Why?? Because it's Friday and I am getting myself out of dodge!!! Yup, I am going to Gunnison with my friend and we are going to go swimming and watch a play her dad is in. Going to be good times I tell you! =)
So last night I decided to try level 2 in Jillian Michael's 30 day Shred. OMG!!! Wowzers!!!! I completed it but let me tell you it is not easy. It is certainly something to build up to but I am glad I tried it. So, next week my plan is to bounce back and forth between level 1 and level 2 and see how that goes.
I have been really trying hard at doing the full range of motion with my lunges and squats. Even just doing level 1 4-day's this week and my Gluteus Maximus muscle's, lower back and hip muscles are telling me that they are not too happy with me. You know what I say right back? WHATEVER!!! GET OVER IT!! DEAL WITH IT!! IN YOUR FACE!!! =) My pushups I feel are also improving and I am seeing muscle toning in my upper and lower body. Now I just need to focus more on abs. I complete all of the ab workouts in the video, but I have yet to feel the soreness that I get when I do crunches on the Pilates ball. hmmmm.... I think my abdominals’ just need a talking too.
I am no longer going to be the one to just sit on the couch and do nothing. No, I will put my body into submission and it will be healthy. AMEN!!! So, along with my workouts 4-6 times a week, playing volleyball on Monday nights and hopefully do some walking/hiking on the trails this summer, I should be good to go.
On another note, my creative juices have not been flowing much lately. I have cut down almost 95% on baking. I now only do it for special occasions which are OK. I don't need that in my house nor do I need to eat it. I am just making sweet things when I have to bring it to an event. As for my painting, I really really need to start a new canvas. I have been itching to do it for the last month or 2, so I need to get that going. I really like the big thick canvas look. I have one in my bedroom that has my Easter Lilly on it, and I want to paint more like that.
OK, so I have rambled on enough, here is one of my favorite songs..
