Instant reflection

I just finished my first real workout with the Kinect. When I say “just”, I mean I’m still on the verge of losing my breakfast. When I say “finished” I mean I had to stop. I’m feeling many things right now, besides the nausea. I feel discouraged and disappointed. I’ve lost a lot of my hard won cardiovascular fitness and muscle strength. I mean, yes, it’s been a year since my last *real* workout, and yes, I had a baby 5 months ago, but still. I’m disappointed that I didn’t stay more active. I can’t change the past, though, and I am feeling excited for the future. šŸ™‚ I know that today is the bottom. It only gets better from here. I’ve started, and that’s the first step. I can’t say it’s the hardest step, because for me it’s consistency for the first 2 weeks. I think I can do it though. I’ve got a husband who has my back, and a daughter who is so much less demanding than most babies. šŸ™‚ I’m probably gonna try my Zumba game in a few hours, and do some solo strength work to round out day 1. Hopefully that and the housework I have planned will both help me reach my calorie burn goal for today and build muscle to burn more long term.
