I found myself missing my daily routine of working out on the treadmill and the Wii. When I was away in the mountains, no I didn't get to do a lot of hiking because I was there for work, I made sure to walk each morning. That, in itself, was a huge feat for me. So, I'm patting myself on the back for doing that.
But it wasn't the same as walking on the treadmill or doing my strength training. Strength training is so important to have as part of your workout. Just increasing your heart rate isn't enough. After doing more resistance training I'm starting to notice a difference. I haven't been all that successful in my pounds lost but I have noticed it in the clothes I were. I put on a shirt which I hadn't worn all summer and I found the arms to be looser. They were not as tight. I was overjoyed by this because it makes all the work and time worthwhile.
This morning during my workout I found myself pushing a little bit harder and using a tighter band to see if I could do it. I was successful and feel great. I'm even looking forward to tomorrow mornings workout which I've got to start at 6:00 am. Yikes!!! That's early but I'm getting back into my schedule slowly and looking forward to seeing more results.
Thank you to my #temt team how helped push me to walk each day I was away and for posting such great posts especially the Joy of Walking and Battle of the Bulge posts.
Have a great day and get up and move.
