Post Jan 1st High.

Admit it, you are all so excited to the point of being antsy about getting down and dirty with your new goals!  I know I am.  It's all I could think about all day at work!!!  I was so excited I knocked out my bootcamp calendar workout at 4am this morning!  All in all it's been a great start to the year!

I want to thank all you wonderful people for visiting first off!  I got over 150 hits on my blog JUST YESTERDAY!  That's sooooo amazing and I'm grateful for the encouragement and feedback!!  It just inspires me to write more and that will help fulfill one of my goals I've set for myself!

 My Day 2 Goals picture for the Sisterhood Shots! *entails the bootcamp calendar,
my memory jar, the workout jar, 5k training, learning yoga, my bikini body, losing 10% of my weight
and letting the world know that I will. I will do it.

Time to lay out my day!  3:45am comes around and that pesky alarm starts blaring ignore the fact that this is the 3rd alarm of my morning and it's time to get up.  I decide today is just not a makeup day so instead of wasting all that time on my face, I knocked out my bootcamp calendar squats *with 10lb weights again*.  Good start!  I slowly mosey toward my car.  My hip injury *apparently a normal upset to the hip joints and flexors for beginners* is flaring up after the 5k I ran yesterday....  But at that point I've stretched it out 4 times since the end of my race.

Work was normal as always.  Boring with just a dash of concentration.  I'm a pharmacy tech at a mail in pharmacy which means I sit at a desk working on a computer all day.  To break up the stagnant lifestyle, what do I do?!  Why my pushups goal of course!  5 pushups every hour as long as I'm at work.  I kicked that daily goal in the BUTT!

As for my walking, I managed to get in my normal average of 2 miles with my bestie.  Not really shooting to increase our distance.  I'd like to keep my hip pain to a minimum so just getting up and outside is enough for me!  Plus it goes toward my goal of walking 5 days a week!

After work, I went out with my besties and we didn't make the most amazing choices with food.  That being said, I learned last year that if you overly restrict your diet, you will be an unhappy miserable person.  It's a combo of baby steps and splurging on what you like every once in a while!  BUT because of our food and drink choices, I decided that my 2 mile walk wasn't enough to cover those calories.  So I plopped down in front of the boob tube!  That's right!  Tried out a new YOGA dvd!  Had you fooled didn't I?!  I was unable to finish the whole sequence due to a lack of muscle, the hip pain, and some wrist issues, but the point is I started.  And I loved this one!  The instructor really knows what it means to be a beginner.  I can already feel the burn in all the right places from what I was able to do.  I will be looking to join local yoga classes if I can find some near work.  I much rather a real person to a screen!  Also looking forward to sharing my Sisterhood Shot for tomorrow!!!!

I hope everyone had an amazing Thursday.  It's so inspiring to see so many people connect through the Facebook group!  I am really looking forward to the next 7.5 weeks with all of you!  I have finally got my Endomondo linked up to MyFitnessPal and will be soon sharing my user names along with my Twitter page on the right side of my blog for anyone interested in following/adding/commenting/supporting/looking for motivation!  Look forward to tomorrow and remember every day is a new one!
