Going from 0 to 100 Might Qualify me for an Idiot Award!!

Today’s 43 was a great one to work on balance!  I did a single leg, bent-over row.

Start on your right side (or left – whichever you want to do first!!):

Right leg first
Right leg first (blurry)

Then row (keep leg up for all reps):

squeeze shoulder blades
squeeze shoulder blades

After completing all reps (43 for me!) then you get to switch legs and start over!!

(Can you tell these pictures were all after I was completely done and showered – dressed for a day of PE – and totally rocking my lovely compression stockings!!)

I got up at 5:00 to do my work-out because I’m an idiot subbing PE today.  I struggled through my entire 43 and workout today.  I did a SELF DVD – Trim and Tone Fast.  It was a fine workout – 60 minutes with a warm-up plus the following 6 sections and a cool-down:

  1. legs
  2. back
  3. arms & shoulders
  4. chest
  5. core
  6. full body

There wasn’t any cardio in this workout which was perfect for  me today because I was having a hard enough time just doing basics this morning.

I think the fact that I spent almost 3 weeks like thisScreen shot 2013-05-17 at 8.15.07 AMand the past 4 days I’ve been more like thisScreen shot 2013-05-17 at 8.16.13 AMhave left me a little drained and very sore.  I’m telling myself I’m just sore from lack of activity and that I need to just suck it up!!!

In reality, I think the fact that I took the DR very literally when she said that I couldn’t hurt anything by “jogging” at this point – I felt the need to hit it hard and now I’m paying feeling it big time!!

Add to the workouts and all of my normal daily activity the fact that I haven’t slept more than 1-2 hours at a time for the past several nights (my legs sort-of throb all night long) and I should probably wear this today:Screen shot 2013-05-17 at 8.20.28 AMBut – I won’t!!  I’ll just go up to the school and spend the day teaching PE to a bunch of wound-up kids (last Friday of the school year!!)!!!  Oy!!

Oh, well – I can rest over the weekend – OH WAIT – that won’t happen since we have 6-7 graduation parties to attend and we have to take Jordan up to the middle school at 2:45am Saturday morning and pick him up between 3:00 & 4:00am Sunday morning!! (love a band contest/6 Flags trip!!)

Happy Fun Friday!!  I’m thinking today will be a Diet Coke day for sure (rare for me but…)
