Lesson Learned

My 43 today was hard (for me) because it was all shoulders.  I used one of my bands

and combined 3 moves:  Alternating front raise, alternating lateral raises and a curl with a shoulder press.

43 sets of that move left my shoulders burning for sure!

After I finished that torture move, I did a Les Mills Combat DVD – Combat 60 Ultimate Cardio Fighter.  Rachel & Dan (they lead the Combat series) say this is the hardest workout in the set – I don’t think it is but it’s a great one!!!

This morning I will finish my journey home.  I can’t wait to get home and see the boys this afternoon.  I was happy to see Chris last night but I will be happier when we are all back home together again!  It was hard to watch all the coverage about Boston yesterday and know that some families will not be reunited because of such a senseless event!  (I had to quit watching and watch some mindless reality TV – Dancing with the Stars.)

Sunday and Monday I really dragged through my workouts – to the point where I thought about not finishing.  Then yesterday evening by the time I got to Wichita & saw Chris (about 5:00) I was dizzy and shaky and felt like crap.  Lesson learned:  Screen shot 2013-04-16 at 9.00.20 AMPopcorn for dinner does not provide enough fuel for a good workout.  I need protein!!Screen shot 2013-04-16 at 9.01.39 AM

I already knew that for me, the most important meal I eat is usually dinner but I haven’t been eating dinner every night since I left home – STUPID!!!  And yesterday, in addition to skipping dinner,  I only had a snack while I was driving so I nearly paid a price for my stupidity.  Fortunately, a little food (with carbs & protein) and some rest and I was pretty much back to normal.

Just 2 more hours in the car today and I will be home – I can’t wait!!!
