About a week ago I was faced with trying to figure out how I could work out while recovering from surgery. The program that I had scheduled to do required lifting weights and I knew that wasn’t going to work.
Last July when I went to Nashville for the Beachbody Summit I had purchased Country Heat, I had even tried it a few times but actually never did more than a few days of it. So I thought that now was the perfect time to complete this program. Thirty days of dancing, no weights, no planks or pushups. Perfect right?
I admit that the first time I pushed play I made the mistake of not wearing my sling and my hand and fore arm went completely numb. This seriously scared the crap out of me. My son was not impressed with my desire to keep pushing play. But I promised that I would wear my sling next time and if I was still having issues I would put it off for a week.
With the sling I had not problems and could actually complete the 30 minute workout. My first week consisted of me working out with a sling and using the 21 Day Fix containers.
I was not very graceful with these workouts and had a lot of balance issues. I have two left feet. I wasn’t able to jump around and did not do any of the arm movements for the first week. I was sweating a lot so I did have hopes that maybe I would get some results. I was completely surprised when I took my measurements.
In 7 days I lost 2 lbs and 6 1/2 inches. Not bad. 🙂
I admit that there have been a couple of times when I did not want to push play. I wasn’t feeling it. But the ladies in my accountability groups keep me going. The motivation and support from them is amazing.
Are you ready to start your journey? Reach out to me and let’s talk. I would love to have you join one of my accountability groups.
Sending strength, hope and love.
