For some more real talk… my rheumatologist's office called two days ago to advise me that my potassium levels were dangerously low. I am on medication and being closely monitored to ensure the levels pick up. As an autoimmune disease warrior I suffer with fatigue on a regular basis but in the last couple of weeks my family and I have noted that it seemed worse. I attributed it to forcing a new schedule and was certain time and commitment would fix it. I may now be able to point the finger to the potassium! This is great news because I am hoping that it will go away once my levels regulate.
All that to say, my energy levels have been suffering and I did NOT want to go downstairs and kill that workout last night!
I started off discouraged and looking like this:
But once I pushed play, turned on my tunes and focused I ended up looking like this:
The shirt came off after the warm up!! It was too hot and restricting for Kenpo. By the time I was doing the punches, front kick, behind kick series I was dizzy~~ but I kept going and burned some grizzle as a result!
After my workout my lil boy asked me to read him his story and I could not think of a better way to cool down… so that is just what I did. Love his snuggles!! We are reading about Greek Gods … Zeus is a 10 year old in this novel and so is that smiling cutie beside me. He is loving the series.
One last share today… I am transforming my garage into my home gym. I am hoping that the space will be cooler than my current gym and my son wants to take over the large room downstairs as his bedroom. It is a win-win as far as I can tell. I am so excited to see the paint going on the walls and the space opening up … I can't wait to get in there and have a good sweat session.
As for the schedule … day 8 starts today! Chest and Back and ARX… stay tuned… maybe even some progress pics from week 1 to week 2 :P
Make it a great day everyone and make it count!!
