90 Day Challenge - Week 1

I cannot believe it's been a week already since I started my challenge!  I'm still super excited!

I'll start out by saying that since I became a mother, working out has been a challenge for me.  I should also add that this was many years ago!! :-)  I mean it's been so crazy.... I would get an injury or have surgery.  I would have to work late.  Or I would not get to work out at all because something always came up!  I always felt like I had so many excuses.  But then at the same time, some of this is actually just real life. 

So I decided to start my challenge January 5 without having any of my It Works products.  I figured, once I received them, all would be okay.  My goal is to get back to a work out routine and I know this challenge will be key in my getting there!  So I went for it along with the excuses and real life.

Week 1 Lessons Learned

1. Do not work out without an adequate amount of sleep.  In other words, I need more than 5 hours of sleep every night to be successful.

2. When you workout 1-2 days a week, it may be a good idea to start on the beginner level.  In other words, I need to start out slow and work my way up to 4-5 days.

3.  Follow your gut instinct.  In other words, when something doesn't feel right, listen and take the appropriate action. 

For some reason,  I cannot move without something popping.  The very day that I work out, something aches.  I get up the next morning, and it's slow going.  It takes a little longer for me to recover from a workout... As much as I want to think I'm my 25 year old self, I'm really not and that's okay....
