A new day a new start/ mamavation

So today is a new day! Yesterday my back was hurting real bad, I guess from overdoing it with the excercise this past few weeks. My body was not used to doing so much excercise so quickly. I am feeling a whole lot better today and ready to get back to working out, even if it is just taking walks, jogging,stuff like that and doing the challenge at a slower pace and spreading it throughout the day. I definitely learned my lesson about trying to get each challenge done in a short amount of time. my body is not ready for that quite yet. My back doesn't feel fully healed yet though, so I think I am just going to have to wait on some of the excercises that hurt it in the first place. I guess I had hoped I could handle this challenge better than I could, but I am proud of myself for trying. I am not completely through and not quitting per say but I am not worried about finishing in the 2 weeks, but going at the pace my body can handle. I am not going to kill my body over it. It just isn't worth it to me. when I pull a muscle as well as my back out in the same week, that is my body saying, WOAH, SLOW DOWN GIRL! As much as I would like to be super woman, I'm just not!
today is going to be a busy one as all saturday's prove to be around here.
I am going to take a morning walk/jog at the park I think
we need to mow lawn. I might take a trip to the library to return previous books checked out, and to get my son Andrew a library card of his own.
And we need to work on the flooring.
Have a good day!
Plans for the upcoming week
wii fit
gruntstyle's 2 week challenge- taking it slower

My children Love fruits and vegetables. I admire them for this and am learning to love them more too. They also enjoy being active.

Good for you! Just keep moving!!!

Sounds like you've had a busy day. Hopefully your sore body will bounce back to normal in no time. Just keep at it with the exercise. No pain, no gain really does hold true when it comes to strengthening your muscles. :) (as long as the pain is not related to an injury, of course.)

Take it easy on your back so you don't end up needing work done on it like me :) Listen to your body. Way to go on jumping back into the swing of things with your schedule. You can do it!

You aren't giving up and that is amazing. You can do this, just listen to your body. You will learn to know the difference between hurt and after workout burn. Good luck this week!!!
