The program says cross training on Sundays and I have been mostly trying to adhere to that...less antsy than when I first started trying, when I pretty much still was umm...ignoring at least one of the 2 rest days in the program, if not both. When the heat hit though my runs were definitely taking more out of me, so I have been persuading myself to rest a bit more. I have been thinking about doing arm work outs though, like a dumbbell program. I am pretty sure Hal wouldn't consider it cross training - it at least doesn't make his list and from what his explanation of what cross is for, I think arm-only would be more of a non sequitur. So I was thinking of adding some kind of dumbbell work to my week on a M/W/F basis; I have an adjustable set of dumbbells I bought right before getting pregnant. And to be honest, I am ready to have my arms match the rest of my body!
...did that sound as weird as I think it did? The thing is, I have spent the past two years losing weight, absent a pause for having a baby. Two years! And I lost a lot of it. I am wearing shorts now! And tank tops! And sizes I thought were relegated to high school. And not that I couldn't wear shorts and tank tops before, but I liked to hide in my clothing. I wore stuff that was much too big because who looks at the person in big clothes? It took a lot of work to stop reaching for clothes that don't fit and to grab ones that do.
Honestly my brain has only recently caught up to the fact that my body is healthy again. So I have, logically, skipped right past acceptance and joy to irritation with my arms being the same as they were when I started this project. Because that makes so much sense, right?
In other news, I am
Anyone else running it?
