After Tuesday's weigh in I picked up a pair of sports bras and a belt. They were all size XL! I made sure I got a belt with many holes so I can continue to use it as I lose weight. Today, I continued the bra shopping and bought a couple of regular bras - 2 band sizes smaller than my last known size!
Where is an industrial strength fan when you need one? That's what I felt like during this first week of Slim in 6: Start It Up! My face would be hot but my chest felt cold, assuming from sweating. I've been so thirsty that most of my water is gone long before the workout is over.
The pain from starting a new workout didn't show up until bedtime Sunday night. The aches continued for a few days and I looked like an old woman at work when I'd get up and walk after sitting for a little while.
I'm struggling with the arm movements. I've always struggled doing anything with my arms elevated; my shoulders just don't want to cooperate. Sometimes even brushing my hair I have to take breaks because I feel it in my shoulders. I was glad when Debbie said to put your arms down if they were tired; definitely taking advantage of that!
Here are some tips I received to work on my shoulders:
Along with the overheating I was feeling dizzy the first few days. I was trying to follow Debbie's breathing when she said to inhale/exhale. That just doesn't work for me. Once I returned to normal breathing the dizziness dissipated. I still felt a little weak so during the band/weights portion I sat on the edge of the couch to work my arms.
I didn't try the Slim & 6-Pack or Slim & Limber with any of this week's workouts. I may try Slim & Limber a couple of times next week.
New Venture, New Identity
This new program and new week was also marked by me signing up to be an Independent Team Beachbody Coach. "Life as We Live" was already taken on Facebook so I had to come up with a new name to make everything consistent. This blog is a part of this new venture but it won't be overrun by it.
That is all I plan to say about it here. Should you wish to know more or follow this blog or business on Facebook or Twitter please click the links below.
