Today’s 21 Day Fix workout was cardio. No equipment needed. I had to modify the burpees and mountain climbers, both of which are off-limits for me and my knees. My quads are a bit sore today after yesterday’s Pilates. I had hoped to use the bike but I never did. Just too tired after going shopping. Ugh. I hate shopping but we got some things for Bibi’s Easter basket, even though she won’t be in town for the holiday. I’ve reached out to my Team Beachbody coach for a suggestion on what to do to replace one of the moves in the Pilates workout that I know is impossible for me to do.
I started using all of the little food containers yesterday and it was more complicated than I had anticipated. Why? Because I made it too complicated. I swear, if there’s an easy way to do it, I would inevitably find a difficult way to do it first. So I did not successfully fill the containers and eat all of the required foods. Nor did I eat six times, even though I’d been eating six times a day during the 3DQF. Today I plan to do better.
I really hope to see improvement in how easily I get through these workouts. Mind you, I’m not pushing myself too hard because I’m trying out the exercises to see where I may find them particularly challenging for my balance or difficult on my knees. I don’t want to hurt myself trying to start something new. But it would be nice to see some progress in things like moving from plank on my knees to a full body plank and such. I know I’m capable. It’s just a matter of patience, practice, and time.
