Whew...so, week 1 of the every night exercise is done. I survived...and I'm not as sore as I thought I would be.
The first 2 days or so were killer - major leg cramps, both wrists were very tight, back slightly sore. Today, only the left wrist is sore, the leg cramps are almost gone...and my waist feels looser. I don't feel as tense when I walk, my hips are on their own, and my waist is..get this..at least 1 inch smaller. How do I know? Simple - 3 weeks ago I bought some new capri's. 1 pair was too large in the waist - the common problem with hippy females - so I pinned the waist snug.
I wore those pants today. They've been washed, and at 100% cotton, they should have shrunk. I expected the waist to be a little too snug...but it was too loose. The pants dropped a good inch down - they were stopped by my hips. *That* feels good!
I haven't seen much increase in energy, but then I'm not sleeping well because of the wrist. I'm not as winded going up the stairs, and I'm not as tense at work.
All in all, I'm pleased. It's not a miracle, but then I didn't expect one. I didn't put on the excess pounds overnight, and I don't expect to lose them that quickly, either. I am having fun, and that's what counts.
I need to clear my head about other subjects, but I'll do that in a post by itself.
I'm off to spin a bit of the shetland!
