Well, I can honestly say that Week One is over. It sucked, but I'm really glad I did it. I'm sore in places I haven't used in months. I was actually getting worried and prepared to call my OB because the area around my incision was so sore! Turns out, planking murders your lower abs, AKA my incision site.
In the effort of full disclosure, I did not complete the ab workout all 3 days, as directed. I only did it twice last week, because by the third day I was just too sore to make myself do it. This week, I'll do better.
Positive changes this week:
-I feel more energized. I was napping every afternoon with Connor, but this week I decided to use that time to work out rather than sleep and I felt so much better afterwards. I could've napped for hours and not felt as energetic as I did after those 20 minute workouts.
-I'm reaching my water and step goals daily. I'm actually planning to up my step goal an extra thousand or so, just to give myself a little something more to focus on.
-Connor got to work out with me a couple times and he really enjoys it. I love sharing this with him, but it's sometimes a great deal harder to complete the exercises because he climbs on me or wants/needs something. However, I brought him in to workout with me on Friday and he did a lot of the exercises too! It was the cutest thing I've ever seen.
Goals for next week:
-Beat my scores and push myself more each day.
-Complete the ab series all 3 days.
-Bring Connor in on my workouts a couple times this week.
Next Sunday is my next weigh-in/measurement/fit test day. I've gotta up my game to make sure I'm happy with the results!
