More than a handful of years ago, I was probably in the best shape of my life. I worked out five to six days per week at the gym. I used various exercise video series when I could not get to the gym, and I attended a few yoga classes from time to time. Then, I had a significant life change, and I fell off the fitness bandwagon.
With the onset of my new business venture, I decided it was time to get back into shape. I figure if my body is in shape, then it will surely help my mind, as well.
So yesterday I started the Insanity exercise Series. I completed the Fit Test, and yes my results were rather dismal. However, I am hopeful in two weeks when I complete the Fit Test again that the results will be a bit better. Overall, I felt pretty good yesterday.
This morning I woke up a little sore. I did the first video in the series, and quite frankly it kicked my behind. Nevertheless, I felt pretty good about myself because I did it. By mid-afternoon, I REALLY felt it. My muscles started getting tight and sore, and with each hour, my body is letting me know that it has been a very long time since I exercised.
I vaguely recall when I was fit that I had oodles of energy, but today I must admit I feel tired. I am hoping this will change as my body adjusts to the new exercise routine.
Until next time...
