Over the weekend, I tried out the last video in Phase One of Thrive90. It was a 30 minute cardio video that can be used on one or both of the two cardio days during each week. They suggest that you can do any cardio activity for at least 30 minutes or you can do this video. It was designed to get my heart rate up – and that it did! I could really tell that I was out of shape; some of these things were really difficult and I couldn’t keep up. But it was ok because I knew two things: First, I did my best; and Second, it would get better if I kept doing my best.
Sunday was a day of rest, which I definitely needed. In fact, my hamstrings were so sore, I wanted two days’ rest!
I did give myself a little motivation though. The program has you weigh and measure after every four weeks, but I wanted to know that my sore hamstrings were worth it. So, I got on the scale. And while it may not seem like much, I was proud to have lost 1.4 lbs! It was motivating enough to get outside and walk for 30 minutes – even with sore hamstrings! It was motivating enough to keep me committed to exercising this week and to help me do better with my food choices.
I look forward to a better week, with improvements and continued weight loss!
