Exercise 3/12 and 3/13

| 1 Comment
I have given myself a goal--to work out 6 days a week, in some form or fashion. I have a lot more energy and I feel better when I am active, so I am going to find the time to do it. YEAH!

This weekend, on the way home, we stopped into WalMart to get some twine (that's another story to come), and of course, if you let the Gerdeses out loose in a WalMart, things are going to be purchased. WMart happens to have my favorite line of workout clothes, Danskin Now, so I got 2 new pairs of workout pants that are awesome (and were only $12 and $14!!) and the Jillian Michaels Shred it with Weights kettlebell DVD. I enjoy using the Kettlebell, and decided to get a workout that isn't just the "how to use it" workout that came with it. Even though that one is tough.

I did level 1 yesterday, and it wasn't that bad! These last few times I've done a DVD, I've been so worn out and shaky afterwards that walking is hard, and then I am sore for days after. I found that the Jillian circuits weren't terrible--I was able to do all the exercises except the jumping one (I've never been a jumper), and today I am not miserably sore. Maybe it was easier? Maybe I am getting stronger? Both? Either way, I like it. I think the Level 2 one might be way more intense, though--the DVD menu shows them doing pushups off the kettlebell handle. Yikes.

Today I rode the bike for a half hour. I listened to Radiohead and focused on a sleeping Latte. I AM SO HARDQORE.

I love Kettlebell. It's like playing.

That is all.
