today was the first day without my wrist brace. i still have a month before i can do anything with my wrist though. it’s limiting, but i’m trying to stay motivated and positive about it. yes, it’s frustrating though. i want to push myself, especially after a lazy weekend. but i have to stay focused on the future. i don’t want to mess it up again. i actually want it to heal this time. it’s been almost a year. i think it’s time. 😉
i’ve had to get creative with my workouts lately, which has been a good thing in a way. so i’ve found some dvds and wii games that don’t require me to use my wrist in any way. here are two of my faves:
so one of the workouts i’ve rediscovered is zumba. i have two of the wii games, zumba 2 and zumba core. i like the core one better, but i do both. there’s a new one that i probably need to get just to mix it up. but what an amazing workout! i usually choose the 45 minute one. it’s all pretty much cardio, but hey – whatever works at this point. i miss my strength training so much, but i’m going to have to be patient until i can get back to it.
i’ve also been doing one of my favorite workout dvds, cardio abs. i was rifling through my dvd collection and i stumbled across it again. each of the three workouts work your core but in different ways. the first one is the cardio workout, the second is a total body toning workout, and the third is abs specific. you can do more than one, but i usually only do one. i like that jessica smith does the whole workout with you too. she’s very encouraging. plus the workouts are pretty short at about 30 minutes. but it’s go-go-go from the beginning on each of them. it’s exhausting, but SO good.
i’m taking my measurements tomorrow morning and i’m VERY curious. i know that i’ve lost weight, but i’m not sure about my inches. at this point, i just expect little to no change because that’s what i’ve experienced the past few months. but i’m not sure! i know that i’m fitting into some clothes that i haven’t been able to before. i’ll let you know tomorrow…
