Shifting directions...

So, yeah, that 30 day Challenge I told you about....I'm redefining my personal parameters. Day 1 of the workout I realized that I couldn't hang. Last time through when I got to week 3 of Ripped I started noticing pain in my left hip flexor so I quit doing it to give my body time to heal. Unfortunately, it's not fully healed. As soon as I started doing some of the lunges and squats, the pain flared up. Not as bad as it was, but it's there. Grrrrr!
So, what's the alternative? Well, I decided that my personal challenge would be to exercise every day in September. Even if it's just power walking, I'm going to move every day. And, it has to actually be exercise...not just walking my kid to school in flip flops lol. I'll also be concentrating on body weight exercises like push ups, stretching things out with pilates and yoga and working with my dumbbells 3x a week.
As promised, I took an updated progress picture. I had to go with black and white this time to cover some of the lack of makeup and my major tan lines ☺
Food has been out of control for about a week so the scale is not my friend and it's causing me to go to a bad head space. I'm working on reigning it in. I've got to do some research on natural remedies to help regulate my hormones as I think this is a key component for me.
I think I've shared this before, but this weeks' motto is: "Do, or do not, there is no try"- Yoda
Have a great week peoples...
