I am so sore...

Lats week I tried out one of my new workout DVDs and really enjoyed it, but what really killed me was when I tried racquetball for the first time! My husband and I went with my Dad and brother last week and really enjoyed ourselves, so we went the next morning (really early) with them and a few other people. We had so much fun and it is a great workout, there is a lot of running, ducking and arm movement, we were definitely sore the next day... and the day after that... and they day after that... okay I am still recovering and we went on Thursday... It is something we have decided to add to our weekly routine (hopefully twice a week) I will still be doing other types of working out too, I love my DVDs too much to quit on them now.

Last week I did two days of my resistance band DVD and two days of racquetball, I am hoping that as I get used to the momentum and movement of racquetball, I will be less sore and up for more of my other workouts!

Amber, Every time your brother comes home in the AM he is SUPER sweaty and threatens to hug me. So, I know you are getting a great workout.

I had tons of fun this morning! I'll probably be sore tomorrow though...

I'm not sure how I'll fit dvds in if I play raquetball. But I'm sure I'll figure something out

ANNIE! today when I played raquetball, my head ended up in Jimmy's armpit at one point cause we ran into each other... he felt bad and told me to make sure I wash my hair twice. LoL

I want to try it! Kind of. I also want to hide under my covers and pretend Racquetball doesn't exist. I hear it's pretty smelly, too...

With everything I am responsible for at home, my ridiculous work schedule and my health problems, it makes it hard to keep working out on the front burner. But when I heard about this blog, I thought 'why not!'. I'm excited to get started and hopefully I won't die of exhaustion when this is all over!

About Helena

I can't fit into my clothes! After getting married and being forced to eat my own cooking, I started gaining weight. The desk job didn't really help. I gained 30 lbs in the past year, and I can really feel it when I try to get dressed in the morning. I am really good at starting diet and exercise programs; but really bad at finishing them. And that's all about to change...
