Of course, I have to start out with a ...."yayyy"! I'm so happy about the election. It's exciting to see so many people excited about the future of the country, that is what gets me. Let's see how this pans out! I'm pretty sad that in Ohio our casino didn't pass...again. Especially with all the jobs being lost. People are freaking stupid, and terrified of gambling. Here's a thought. Don't do it if you don't like it.
Today, I feel like I got hit by a car. Everything hurts. I mean, everything. We didn't do crunches and my abs hurt. We didn't do weights, but my arms hurt. Last night I went to an earlier class, and if it's possible, it was harder. We did of course, the 850 jumping jacks. (complimentary of every class) I tried to do some modified, because my legs hurt so bad, I thought, if I fall down because my legs give out, I hope they don't trample me. I was on my second set of modified jacks, and the girl in front of me turned around and told me to "come on, you can do it...don't stop" and counted out the jacks out for me, and did hers facing me until we finished. I wanted to kick her, but it really helped. And I thought...I'm stronger than I gave myself credit for. I kinda rock!
I wanted to vomit. I worked out so hard I could've puked. This reminded me of the biggest loser, when Jillian says if you're not puking keep going. I used breath to push it away, sort of a meditation (if you can call it that with horrific pain in your legs). After all those jacks, and lunges and squats, and stupid stability ball work, we did a thing where you run to the left, squat, jumping jacks, run to the right and repeat. We did that 25 times. I seriously had tears in my eyes. I would never survive the military. They were all counting it out happily doing military-type sing songs. I thought, these bitches are crazy! Someone has warped their minds!
When I got home I could barely walk. I had to go up and down my steps sideways. One at a time. Then I had to clean my carpets, and do my dishes, and clean the rabbit cage, and do a load of laundry. Once I laid down, I was out like a light. I took ibuprofin today and I'm feelin a little better! I also had done a 3 mile walk on lunch yesterday. I'll do another one today. The walking seems to help loosen up the soreness.
I get to see my cute manfriend tonight! I'm excited! I don't get to enjoy a cocktail though. It'll be worth it when I drop 20lbs this month. It's good to have dreams! There are several girls who did that in their first month. It will be mine...oh yes......it will be mine!
