On Monday, Wednesday and Friday I do cardio. This is my least favorite thing to do and even more so if it is on a stupid machine. Lucky for me that it is nice outside so on Monday and Friday I can go outside to run like a hamster. As I have posted before I have started alternating running and walking for my cardio. My husband timed my running for me and I am now up to 30 seconds of running at a time. I know this is not a long time but if you were close to 300 lbs would you be able to run for more than 30 seconds starting out? I do this 30 seconds of running and 2 walking for about 20-30 minutes and then go home. I am hoping to up it by 5 or 10 seconds each week until I get better and can up it by minutes. Right now I am still focusing on correct form and breathing as well as trying not to hear my rolls slapping with each step. My family is great at helping me on these workouts and I am glad that they are there. I don't think I will ever be a "runner" but I do really enjoy it right now. It is so much better than a machine too. BTW, I am an accident prone person and this monday during my run I went right off the side of the trail and fell. Yup, right on down went the big girl. That cut the workout in half since it hurt my ankle and my husband is over protective. My knee got scratched a little too and it makes me feel like I am earning battle scars from my workouts. I laughed so hard at myself! Here is a pic of it today (mostly gone) as an after workout pic.
On Tuesday and Thursdays I do weight training with low weight and high reps with little rest between the different movements. I love this the most. I really enjoy feeling like wonder woman and the way that it is done my heart rate stays up too. One day I will have arms that are firm but for now they still wave hello and good by to me with each press up. Here is My after workout glow pic. Also, I put off folding laundry last night until after my workout (so that I would actually do it) so if you can see it in the pic don't judge!)
