Phit-n-Phat: Week 1

Well, we did not accomplish the 3 routines that we had so eagerly set out to do this weekend. Instead, we did Friday nights workout, which involved squats, lunges and more of both which made us so sore we could not move!! Saturday, we took the day off, knowing that we still had 6 more days to get the other two workouts in. Yesterday, I was able to walk a little bit better, so I did a 45 min. fast walk and felt a ton better....only to feel worse after my exercise-high had worn off. Boo.

Tonight we are going to attempt to do the arms routine at home. The gym is the most crowded on Monday nights so I don't even want to try and get it done at the gym. We have a nice weight machine in our basement that hardly gets any use, so we will try and use that instead. Wish me luck with burpees, bearcrawls and mountain climbers, amongst some other fun arm exercises.

We also managed to only eat out once this weekend, which I thought was a very big accomplishment for us. We seem to lose it on the weekends, and I think we held this one together pretty well.

Tomorrow, I go to the podiatrist to pick up my orthotics. I am so excited to finally be able to do more than 30 minutes of hard exercise without wanting to yank my second toe off of my right foot. Yep, that poor little toe is doing the big toe's job and it's time for the big toe to take it over again. I can't wait to have some relief!!

I will have a final Phit-n-Phat update on Friday...for now, wish us luck. My quadriceps are begging you!
