No pain, no gain

Remember this?

After about a month of glancing at this workout video every time I walked by it on the kitchen counter I decided to actually start doing it tonight. The problem is that I've been injured. First it was my feet, then it was my back and then it was my feet again. But I started feeling better and began walking again last week. Tonight, after my walk I walked by the video on my way to get a glass of water and said what the heck? No guts, no glory my friends.

I made it through my first 20 minute workout (on level one) of the thirty day shred. If my math is correct, that means I have 29 more days until I have a glorious body. I'll let you know how it all works out. It was a good workout. Level one is perfect for someone who hasn't worked out in awhile. My legs and arms are shaky and I think that's a good thing. I will say I incurred a minor (hopefully) injury during the cool down. That's right, I said the cool down. NOT the actual workout. I was supposed to be stretching out my quads but lost my balance and pulled my hamstring a little bit. Also, ever since I got out of the shower I can't seem to quit peeing my pants just a little bit. I think I may have pulled my bladder. I'm hoping both injuries will magically disappear in my sleep tonight. Since I know no one is really interested in my work out habits I promise to only update you on my progress once a week. I have to be held accountable in some way or I know I'll stop after a week or another muscle or major organ pull. May the force be with me.
