We survived Day 4 fellow exercisers! I don’t know about you but I really didn’t feel like working out today. I did it anyway (I have too big of a competitive streak not to. Not against you, though,.. against myself.. and because my husband doesn’t think I will finish this!)

So here’s the rundown for Day 4:

Activity: Yoga
Activity Length: 30 minutes
Difficulty: Some things were easier, I think I had a little more flexibility with some of the poses, etc. Other things that I could do on the first day (without sore muscles) such as a move resembling a push-up I found very difficult to do with my “weak and wobbly from all this exercise” ab muscles. I pushed through though – yeah!
How I feel: I feel like I’m getting stronger. Another advantage to doing a little bit of yoga before beginning the tough-as-nails cardio workout. I’m loosening and strengthening my body with these yoga workouts first. Perhaps that will help? Or is that wishful thinking? =P
Tomorrow: I promised you I shall begin The Thirty Day Shred tomorrow, and so I shall!

Remember that whining I was doing yesterday about standing on the scale this Friday? This morning I stood on it, just to see.. and what do you think I found when I did? My scale was off by 3 pounds! I don’t know if it was like that when I first weighed in or not.. but I fixed it and now zero is zero. I guess I get a three pound advantage at the first weigh in. ; ) Oops!

Well, what are you going to do with today? Don’t forget to drink lots of water and fuel your body with some good healthy foods, too!
