Almost done with week two and so far I have mixed feelings. Like Rachel, I've had a hard time staying on track. There are interruptions during almost every workout - typically a little sweet baby boy that waking up from his nap. I've been able to make it through but I'm feeling a little guilty. If Sawyer wakes up, I'll typically put him in the bouncy chair next to me and try to keep him quiet until I finish....definitely not ideal. I think once we get in a little better routine, things will get easier and I'll be able to make it through my workouts.
Despite the interruptions, I feel myself getting stronger. I had noticable improvements in my numbers this week. I did more pushups and pullups during Arms & Back and I just made it through Ab Ripper X, doing all the reps (some were pretty sloppy but I finished). I am definitely encouraged and motivated to keep going even though I can't actually see the results. I am disappointed with my weight loss - I was hoping to drop a few pounds in the first couple weeks....you know, starting a new program and all....but that hasn't happened. I might be down a pound or so - definitely NOT the amazing results I was hoping for.... but I am still motivated. As I build my strength, I know the rest will come, slowly but surely. I did improve my pullups quite a bit! Still a ways to go to get up to 20 but las week I could only do 3 or 4. This week I did 7....maybe next week will be 10! :)
Also, just to let everyone know I have missed 2 workouts. I missed Wednesday during week one and Monday this week. I'm disappointed in myself for missing those days but I am also realistic about this process. I know there are going to be days where I simply can't fit it in. So instead of missing workouts I considered to be a little more important, I didn't do yoga either week and replaced it with my skipped workout. My goal next week is to complete every workout and get at least 2 (short) runs in. I'm hoping adding in extra cardio will help with the weight loss.
So even with mixed feelings and a little disappoint in my first two weeks, I remain hopeful and motivated. Still waiting for those jeans to fit but I know I will get there....
