So, I may be writing this post on Tuesday (East Coast Time), but until I actually go to sleep, it’s still Monday in Suz’s World!
Here’s my Cliff’s Notes backstory: I’ve pretty much been idle (fitness-wise) since July, due to some health issues. They’re weren’t super serious, but your girl is paranoid, so I stopped all my workouts. Everything is now under control and, after meeting with my doctor last week, I feel confident enough to get back to working on my fitness!
But taking 6+ months off is a huge deal! Especially since the I think that’s the longest I’ve been idle in over a decade. I can’t remember ever taking a break that long. So it was a daunting task to start contemplating getting back in the game. One thing is for certain, I am going to take my time getting back in shape. One of the worst things I can do is try to do too much, too soon, and end up injuring myself.
To sort of ease myself back into a routine, I chose Chalene Johnson’s PiYo workout from Beachbody. I’ve always loved me some Chalene, and feel that a low impact & hybrid Pilates/Yoga workout is a great place to start. My longterm, goal is to get back to my soulmate workout, TurboFire, but for now, baby steps is the move.
So, today was Day 1, where Chalene walked me through the terminology, much of which I was already familiar with, having done many of her workout programs. But it felt great because it was like a long stretch that my body needed. Two thumbs up. Looking forward to getting after it tomorrow, and modifying as needed!
Here we go!
