Getting in a Workout (when you can)

After last weekend’s run I was feeling great and felt ready to focus a little more on working out again. So, Tuesday night I decided to start the 30 Day Shred (again), one of my favourite at-home workouts. My husband was home so it worked out well if either of the kiddies woke up – they didn’t!

Now, the first time I ever did this workout was about one and a 1/2 years ago. I did the first level and felt it was a good challenge. Well! I woke up the next day and couldn’t move! I couldn’t go from standing to sitting very easy (think toilet, any chairs), squatting to play with my then 16 month old was painful and then trying to pick her up at the same time. I thought my body was breaking down. I hurt for a FULL week, no lie. I got back into it a week later and loved it….as you can see by my collecting of workout DVD’s, I like her workouts.

This time around I thought I may be in for the same experience but I did the work out anyway. I was surprised to feel so good immediately after the workout. I had lots of energy. I felt like I could conquer all the cores around the house in minutes I was so hyped up.

Oh, I forgot to mention that I started the workout at 9:16 PM. Yeah, you read that right. It was almost 9:45 PM when I finished and was feeling great. At least I got my workout in!!!!

I’m also writing this at 9:47 PM as it’s the only time I have all day to get a few things done: laundry, dishes, workouts, blogging. Having a 3 month old and toddler keeps me super busy these days. I look forward to 9 PM so I can decide if I’m going to do a few chores, workout and shower, call someone, blog or go to bed.

What’s the latest you’ve worked out?
