Well, day 2, level 1 is under my belt. I can tell you that my muscles made sure I knew that they’d been used! Woke up this morning with practically every muscle in my body sore, but, it’s a good kind of sore, not a painful one….though I often rethink that when I need to sit down, stand up or go up and down stairs…lol
Day 2 was definitely easier than day 1. I was able to do all of the last cardio set (jumping jacks, butt kicks, punches and jump ropes). I still have a bit of trouble with stamina and I can’t always do all of the bicycle crunches, but it will all come back to me and get easier. I ate a serving of oatmeal with a little salt and sugar and a cup of Earl Grey tea a couple hours before working out and took a package to the Post Office for Sarandipity Handmade before I did day 2. I found that the oatmeal keeps me fuller longer and I don’t want to snack in between breakfast and lunch. I’ve gotten into the habit of having something for breakfast, unlike 5 years ago when I’d often skip meals, so I’m thinking that had an impact on the amount of energy I’ve got and the fact that I’m not dizzy or nauseous this time around. Not sure what I’m going to have for lunch, yet. Maybe some leftover baked ziti or a turkey sandwich. Plan to have pork chops with bacon grits for dinner.
Oh, and I did weigh myself again before showering. I’m back up to 150lbs, but then again I don’t have one of those fancy scales that tells me lbs and oz, so I could have been on the very edge yesterday. I also took some body measurements today so I can see if I lose or gain any inches.
