I truly believe that the athlete in me dug a ditch, laid down in it, and died a LONG time ago. That is not to say that I don’t want her back, and I am doing everything in my power to breathe new life into her. But my lawd have mercy on me, it is hard. I am not looking to be supermodel skinny, I just want to get back into my size 8/10. That is when I looked ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS. No one thought I was bingeing/purging (if you really knew me, you would know that I love food way to much to eat it, then turn around and throw it up) or anorexic (again, I LOVE FOOD). Or that I was pregnant way before I actually was. (Yes, some people have thought all of those thing about me at one time or another). I looked good and felt good about myself and I want that back.
I also know that part of my problem is my lack of patience. Wait my bad, I mean I have NO patience. If I don’t see results instantly, I have a tendency to give up. Forgetting that slow and steady wins the race, and that I can not have a quick solutions to what has been a long-term problem. So here I am trying to be consistent and refusing to give up (at least for today….. who knows about tomorrow).
Shooting and Passing (Basketball – worked the arms)
Pitch & Catch & Bat (Baseball – worked on coordination which apparently I have none of)
Squats (a lot of them, and they want you to get really low – pain)
Squat Hold ( I could barely do the squats, so we all know the squat hold was a no go)
Alternating High Knee Reverse Lunges 2x
Kick Ups ( I call these the Bootay Kicks)
Inline Skating (Skipped – I still can’t figure out how to successfully do these)
Bent Over Rows with Triceps Kickbacks
Bicep Curls with Shoulder Presses
Targets & Heavy Bag (Love boxing wish there was more of it in these workouts)
Back Court & Front Court ( Tennis)
Alternating Side Lunges
Run, Knees, & Kick Ups (Running the track, High Stepping & Bootay Kicks)
Serve, Bump, Set & Block (Volleyball – I was not good at this when I used to play in high school, so you can imagine how well I did today)
Bent Over Rows
Alternating Bicep Curls
Alternating Triceps Kickbacks
I did really well on the majority of these workouts, I even managed to complete most of them! All I know is that I better have some KILLER GAMS come the summer time with all these lunges and squats that I am doing, or me and EA Sports Active are going to have some serious problems…I’m just saying.
