I’m REALLY late visiting with you today and lemme tell you why …. I’m tired.
As threatened, I went kickboxing Saturday morning, in spite of the fact that my calves felt tight enough to pop. After class, they felt better, but my upper body was beginning to tighten up. Over the course of the rest of the weekend, I mowed my yard using a push-mover, shampooed carpets and spent a day kayaking/floating down the Collins River. By Sunday, my upper body was in some serious fatigue and discomfort. The thing is: I am SO EXCITED ABOUT IT!
Every muscle twinge tells me that I broke that tissue down a little during working out. Lean protein consumption helps my body rebuild that tissue, making it stronger, leaner and more efficient. I can already tell a difference in how some of my clothes fit which is incredibly thrilling.
The soreness reminds me:
- to do only those things that really matter,
- that I am alive, and
- that I am getting stronger.
Class is at 8 tonight. I still will not be able to do many push-ups or ab sprawls; but, I can guarantee you that I will be able to do more of them tonight than I could on Saturday. Progress, baby!
