Exercise update post:
Today is day 14 of my exercise program. I missed Saturday's (the 23rd) workout because I was at the hospital with Emily while she had her baby. Thanks again Emily for letting me be there. It was amazing to experience birth from that perspective. It was also a nice thing to not be the one pushing a baby out. I'll be posting pictures of the little nipper here very soon.
Sunday is always a rest day in the program, but I decided to make up for Saturday's miss by doing the stretch and abs routine that day. I didn't want to get all sweaty on the Sabbath, but didn't want to feel like a marshmallow either. Those routines really work you without the sweaty mess. Other than that, I've been following the program faithfully. A first for me. I'm seeing results already. (I don't know if they're visible to anyone else, but they are to me.) I can already feel a difference. My muscles definitely feel stronger. I'm down another pound too. I'm feeling very motivated and good about myself right now. That's a big deal. I don't always feel this way. It's a nice change.
