Well Linda, That's What You Get For Showing Off!!!
Tuesday, January 17, 2012
I went to the gym yesterday and did 20 minutes on the elliptical and a full lower body strength training.
After that, I returned home and started watching that new TV show The Revolution with DH. To make a long story short, this is a new makeover/fitness/weight loss show hosted by Ty Pennington of Extreme Home Makeover fame! I thought that was an interesting choice for a host.
Anyway, they have this personal trainer to the stars guy who was showing some exercises to do at home. The first was simple enough, so of course I jumped right up to do it. Just take a regular kitchen chair sit down and get up. Then repeat. For 30 times. For 3 sets.
OK, I did it, but it was harder than I thought it would be.
A little later in the show, same personal trainer guy shows some exercises for 2 people to do together. So, of course, I say to DH, "Stand up and do this with me. I can do that!" Reluctantly, DH stood up while I laid on the floor. He then stood behind my head (following trainer guy's instruction), while I raised both legs up so he could grab my ankles (lifting my butt off the floor) and swing my legs forward and back!
Fast forward to today...I can barely move! DUH!!! My quads are like rocks from doing the up/down chair thingy and my lower back is less than pliable after doing the leg insanity!
To make matters worse, my BLC 18 team is doing a last chance workout today and we are supposed to be hitting the cardio hard! Translate that to walking in place for me at 10 minute intervals to try to get something in to add to the team's count.
