I can't seem to get myself back into the habit of working out. I was really good at it for a few weeks in there, but then I just sort of...stopped. Now, it's hard to get back into it.
Tonight, I took Cosmo the WonderDog (who, by the way, has lost about .8 pounds in the last 5 weeks! That's kinda huge for a dog - we're proud of him!) for a walk. It was roughly a mile or so. Forgot to turn my Runkeeper on. Whoops. Anyway. We went for a walk tonight, and I was feeling pretty awesome, so I decided to keep the momentum going. I thought "hey. Let's try that new balance ball workout we got."
Ummmmmmm. Yeah. I suck at the balance ball. Hard.
I don't appear to have the skills at this point in my life to balance on the ball while pulling around on a giant rubberband. I mean, I run into walls when I walk. In tennies. Sober. I guess that *kind of* explains why it's a little diffiult to balance on a ball that's supposed to hold my weight (but, frankly, I find that difficult to trust- based on the fact that it's a rubber ball and I'm a big lady...) while I do exercise moves.
As I sit here typing this, though, I notice that my legs are feeling fatigue-y. Hmmm. It's definitely the 'ol inner thigh area. My legs feel like a set of stems that have done more than just walk the dog. And my shoulders are sore in a good way too. Arms are nice and solid. I like it. So maybe, despite my total inability to actually balance on the ball, I've done some work. I DOUBLE like that.
Here's to getting back into the groove and keeping it going.
