I cannot believe that I'm about to type this. Yesterday's exercise was....gulp...easy.
So, today I decided that rather than following the gal on the right (who does the modified exercises), I'd follow the one on the left who does them full throttle. Once again, I hurt. I feel my stomach muscles when I laugh, I can feel a nice tension in my thighs and arms (oh -- by the way, I"m still a wimp at push-ups and can only get through the first round of push-ups by doing them the "girly" way). Some day, I hope to be able to do 10 or so real push-ups.
Anyhow - I'm not dying. Go figure. I hurt, yes, but don't feel like killing myself to relieve the pain.
Oh -- and get this. Even though I'm exercising more, I am not as hungry. Isn't that weird?? Also -- I'm waking up at 5:15 and going to bed well after 10, sometimes closer to 11 and I'm not tired. Before, I was falling asleep by 930 and hitting snooze until 630. Weird, weird, weird!
